$100 Bonus /$1k deposit no referrals in thread

Deal Link:
Savings:
$100
Retailer:
Meridian
Taking a chance here since credit union offers don't do too well here in hot deals, but please enlighten me of anything better in the market for bank account signups. Please no referral soliciting in thread. Downvoters please explain why you don't love free money for minimal effort. Now, the scoop...
  • sign up online. all provinces eligible. softie on equifax
  • deposit $1k via e-transfer, external account link or cheque
  • wait past deadline. once you receive the $100 bonua, you can withdraw the $1k. The $100 is held for 90 days.
  • the $100 bonus is available with or without referral!! with referral it was generally $50/$50
  • optional: chq account has welcome bonus for existing members. not a hot deal but few places offer bonuses on chq + sav. Note that the chq account promo is ON only
  • deposits guaranteed by DICO up to $250k

Other deals...
  • Meridian subby Motusbank $35 via HIS for sav account, no min funding. then GCR $$ for mortgage, loans & GIC
  • Achieva via referral for $25/$250 min funding +1/month free
  • Simplii & Tang if you don't have them for easy signup $$
  • don't know of any big bank $300+ chq account offer going on now, that's what makes this deal even better plus no branch visit needed for Meridian. BNS momentum chq is grandfed
  • still early in fiscal year. hit Meridian now, then free up the cash float for summer banking offers

That thread was for last winter's promotion. They bring it back usually winter and summer, but this is the first time I see they bring it so early in the fiscal year.

I believe the terms say you can transfer out the $1000 as soon as you get the $100 bonus. But the $100 bonus has to stay in the account for 3 months after. I think in another thread people have transferred out the $1000 + $100 and closed the account right away, but I wanted to play it safe. Double check the terms.

T&C say that there would be 3 months hold on $100 but looks like Meridian has not placed hold on bonus funds.

So just so I understand, I can withdraw the $1000 but leave the $100 for 3 months upon which I can withdraw and close the account. Right?
