1Offer redeemable online-only. To qualify for the $150 checking bonus, open a Northwest Affinity Checking, Affinity Plus Checking, or Affinity Premier Checking account online by 10/31/2022 and make direct deposits totaling $500 or more within a single statement cycle within the first 3 statement cycles from account opening. A qualifying Direct Deposit is an Automated Clearing House (ACH) credit, which may include payroll, pension or government payments (such as Social Security). The bonus will be deposited into your new account within 90 days of completing qualifying activity requirements. In order to receive the bonus, your checking account must be open and in good standing. Offer is not available to existing Northwest checking account customers or to those with a Northwest checking account that has been closed within the last 12 months. Northwest Bank reserves the right to limit each customer to one new account-related bonus per calendar year. Eligibility may be limited based on your account type and ownership role. Bonus is subject to IRS 1099-INT reporting. Employees of Northwest Bank, its affiliates, and subsidiaries are not eligible for this offer. Offer subject to change, including cancellation, at any time without notice.

2To qualify for the additional $10 bonus, you must enroll all Northwest accounts in eStatements. The bonus will be paid to an eligible checking or savings account where you’re listed as a primary owner. Bonus is subject to IRS 1099-MISC reporting and will be credited to your account within 30 days of satisfying requirements. Not eligible on business accounts. Additional restrictions may apply. See branch for details. Offer subject to change, including cancellation, at any time without notice.

*The average daily balance is calculated by adding the principal in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the period. Deposit balance: Calculated by adding the current balances in all Northwest Bank deposit accounts as of the close of your statement cycle for this checking account. Accounts used to calculate your total deposit balances include all Northwest checking, savings, money market, certificate of deposit, and individual retirement accounts owned by at least one of the owners listed on this checking account. Only personal accounts that are either solely owned, jointly owned, or account trustees, will qualify for relationship balances. Holds placed on deposits according to our Funds Availability Policy Disclosure do not reduce your current balance for deposit relationship balance calculation. Any account used in the calculation of your deposit relationship balance may be subject to its own service charge and must still meet the requirements disclosed for waiving the service charge specific to that account as applicable. Investment balances: Must be held in an eligible personal LPL Financial account with Northwest Investment Services. Investment products that are excluded from balance calculations, include life insurance products, Turnkey Asset Management Platform (TAMP) accounts and other investments that are classified as Alternative Investments at LPL Financial. LPL Financial accounts must have all required account paperwork up to date. LPL accounts must be held in the primary account holder name and have the same SSN or TIN associated with the Affinity Checking Account. Investment balances will be calculated using LPL Financial month end values. 

**The offer of free first order of specialty checks or 50% off first order of other style checks for Affinity Plus is for new accounts only, not for existing customers migrating to this account.
