2 High Rate Checking dividends are paid on the last day of each month to checking accountholders who have opted out of receiving paper statements (receive eStatements only) and have a recurring monthly electronic deposit to their Alliant checking account each month (e.g., a direct deposit, payroll deposit, ATM deposit, mobile check deposit or transfer from another financial institution). Otherwise, Alliant checking accounts do not earn a dividend. Checking dividend may change after account is opened and is subject to change monthly. There is no minimum balance requirement to open an Alliant checking account or to earn the stated APY. Alliant checking is free; however, if incurred, fees such as a stop payment or NSF fee will apply. Please refer to the Alliant Fee Schedule for a list of these types of fees. Account is subject to approval. We may not open checking for you if you do not meet Alliant criteria.
3. Alliant eStatements are free. A fee will apply if you choose to receive your account statement in paper form. Refer to the Fee Schedule. To avoid the paper statement fee, log in to Alliant Online Banking to change your statement preference to eStatements.

Fyi. I called to ask about this promotion. They said it was not in the system. It might be user specific.
I applied 9/26/14 and there was a box for a promo code. I already had an Alliant savings account.
