How it works: Open your new Students First account between September 1–30, 2016. You’ll need to add an automatic direct deposit (like a paycheque) and/or two unique* pre-authorized (ie, scheduled) bill payments (like mobile phone and car insurance). The first deposit must go into the account (or each of the first payments must be withdrawn from the account) by November 30, 2016, and each must recur for at least once per month in each of the next two consecutive months (in other words, they must recur for three consecutive months).
These offers are available to adults age 18 or over and who are residents of Alberta. Sorry, if you have or have previously had a personal chequing account with us on or after December 31, 2013—that includes the Pay As You Go, Basic, Unlimited, ATB Advantage, Students First or Freedom accounts—you’re not eligible for this offer. (But check out our offer of $50 for every friend you successfully refer!)
These offers can’t be combined with any other promotional offer. One $150 bonus per qualifying Students First account and one $50 referral bonus per qualifying new Students First account. The eligible account must be open and in good standing when the cash bonus is to be deposited into the account. Unfortunately, ATB team members and individuals who are joint on any account with an ATB team member, ATB agents and employees of ATB agents are not eligible to participate in these promotional offers. As the offer provider, ATB has the right to determine what is considered direct income deposit and pre-authorized payment. ATB also has the right to withdraw these offers at any time without notice and/or to suspend, disqualify, limit or revoke these promotional offers to any person or account holder we find or believe to be manipulating or otherwise abusing the process, fairness, integrity or operation of the promotional offers.

* What is a unique payment? To be counted as unique, the payments need to be to different companies—or if it's to the same company, it needs to be a different type of payment. For example, a loan payment and credit card payment to the same financial institution are different payment types (one credit card, one loan) and count as two unique payments. However, a payment to the same mobile company for two different cell phone accounts is only one unique payment. Payments made or set up in online or mobile banking, as well as PayPal payments, are NOT counted as pre-authorized.
