You basically get $450 for moving money around. Be sure to stay organized and keep track of everything so that you don't miss bills. I sign up for these and make a checklist of all my auto-pay bills and accounts that are connected to my current bank account. I then set up the new bank account, change my direct deposit over and all my auto pay accounts. I then use Todoist.com to set a reminder for myself to change everything back at the end of the time frame. Example: “Change pay accounts and close First Horizon Bank six months from today p1 #finance”. Todoist will automatically set a reminder for me exactly six months from the day I enter that, set it to priority 1 so that it stands out as red on my list and adds it to my Finance project in Todoist. Then six months from today, I will see it pop up on my list and remind me to cancel.
