Get up to $125 in 3 easy steps.

Step 1.

Mail icon.

Enroll and open a new Ally Bank Savings Account by 3/1/2024.

It’s too late to open an eligible account for the referral program; enrollment ended 3/1/2024. If you already enrolled in the program and opened your Savings Account less than 30 days ago, there's still time to complete the remaining steps.
Note: If you were an Ally Bank customer before enrolling, you won’t be eligible to earn the cash bonus and your friend won’t get a referral reward.

Step 2.

Fund and build your Savings Account balance.

Bring in up to $25,000 of new money from another financial institution to your newly opened Savings Account by 3/25/2024 to get a 0.50% cash bonus applied to your balance.  You can make multiple funding transactions between the account opening date and 3/25/2024.
A higher balance means a bigger cash bonus, up to $125! If your account has over $25k, only the first $25k will qualify for the cash bonus. The surplus money will still earn a great rate but will not qualify for the reward.Notes: Your first funding transaction needs to be within 30 days of opening your Savings Account, or else the account will automatically close. There’s no minimum amount required to fund your account. FYI: Transfers can take up to 3 business days to post.As long as all eligibility requirements are met, your friend will receive $50 for inviting you after you fund your account (if they haven’t maxed out their referrals). Hooray!

Step 3.

Kick back and watch your money grow.

Maintain a balance of up to $25k (or more) in your account through 7/15/2024 to earn the 0.50% cash bonus on the first $25k, up to $125. 
Notes: Your cash bonus is calculated based on the total daily ending balance that will be in your Savings Account on 3/25/2024. That balance is your “Retained Eligible Money”.Withdrawals made from your Retained Eligible Money during the 3/25/2024 to 7/15/2024 window may reduce your bonus. If you meet all of the eligibility requirements, you’ll get the 0.50% cash bonus, up to $125, no later than 7/31/2024. 

Other things to keep in mind:

  • Transfers can take up to 3 business days.
  • Your friend will receive $50 for inviting you after you open and fund your Savings Account.
  • If your account has over $25,000, only the first $25,000 will qualify for the 0.50% cash bonus. The surplus money will still earn a great rate.
