    • The total eligible deposits cannot exceed a million dollars ($1,000,000.00).
    • For deposits made to an eligible account that is already active during the Bonus Period, the balance as at January 9, 2020 at 12:00 a.m. will be used to calculate the Bonus. Any amount exceeding the balance at this time will be considered an eligible deposit, subject to the conditions set out herein.
