On case you wondered about bank's name.

"Our origins go back to the Bank of the Ohio Valley, which opened in Cincinnati in 1858. In 1871, that bank was purchased by the Third National Bank. With the turn of the century came the union of the Third National Bank and the Fifth National Bank, which eventually became known as "Fifth Third Bank."

Why not many likes for this post? Did anybody opened and got the bonus? If yes, can you please post the dates when you opened and when you got bonus.

There's a $11/$25/$35 monthly fee, depending on which type of checking account you open. The various options to waive the fee aren't reasonable...

ALSO, there's a $50 fee to close the account.

You forgot to mention that you need a minimum deposit of $50. Also, need DD totaling at least $100 (within 90 days) in order to get the promotion, not $10...

Not true, any direct deposit amount will trigger the bonus. There is not a minimum requirement.
