Easy account opening
To take advantage of this welcome offer, you will first need to open an account with Sober. The procedure is completely online, and the process is very simple and fast.

You can choose between three bank cards: a Visa evolution at 7.20 euros per month, a classic Visa at 7.90 euros per month and a Visa Premier at 14.90 euros per month. You can then submit the requested documents, such as proof of address, scan of your ID, and pay stub.

A modern online bank
Why bet on Société Générale? This bank, which has a good position among our favorite online banks, offers with its bank accounts the advantages of a flexible online bank while offering the traditional services of a physical bank, such as the assignment of a bank advisor or the possibility of contracting various insurances, such as home insurance or complementary health insurance.
You’ll also be able to take advantage of a handy and comprehensive mobile app, available on iOS and Android, that lets you quickly check your accounts. The features that this app allows are so many that you might even get a little lost. Fortunately, you can modify your roof, make transfers or even oppose it very easily. Otherwise, contactless payment can be made via the NFC features of the smartphone, but only in Paylib and Apple Pay (so not Google Pay). The application finally offers an automatic categorization of your expenses to better manage your finances. Security options are also available, such as fingerprint unlocking or account blocking in case your bank card is lost or stolen.
A prize worth seeing
Once your account is opened, you will automatically obtain a first bonus of 80 euros, paid directly in the form of a transfer. To do this, you must imperatively make at least five payments by credit card during the first three months following the opening of the Sober account. To obtain the additional 40 euros, it will simply be necessary for direct debits and regular transfers to be domiciled at Société Générale. To do this, it will be necessary to subscribe to the bank mobility assistance service of the establishment: the bank itself will be in charge of changing the bank establishment for these direct debits and periodic transfers.
