From today until next week, SG is organizing an exceptional operation to attract new customers thanks to a welcome bonus of 140 euros! This is the type of offer that is good if you only want to change banks.
For the last week of February, Société Générale offers its new clients an exceptional operation with a welcome bonus of 140 euros when opening a first Sober account. A little extra that is welcome for fun!
Why open a Sober account:
- No account fees
- VISA insurance and guarantees
- Payments and withdrawals abroad
Up to and including February 28, opening a Sober account at Société Générale entitles you to benefit from a bonus of 140 euros. First you will receive a welcome bonus of 80 euros, then an additional 60 euros for direct debit and regular transfers with SG.
A traditional bank that keeps up with the times
With a history of almost 160 years, Société Générale is the third largest bank in France, but also one of the largest in Europe. Despite its traditional side, it remains one of our favorite online banks with a whole range of offerings, including Sobrio, which offers the same advantages as a neobank. And, even with the digital aspect, the SG provides traditional services such as the assignment of an adviser in real life and the possibility of contracting various insurances.
The Sober offer that we are going to talk about is divided into three levels, the price of which changes according to your age. First of all, the Evolution offer from €3/month with classic account management and the possibility of withdrawing cash in other places in Europe three times a month. Then, the classic offer, also from €3/month and adding medical assistance and repatriation insurance. Finally, the Premier offer, from €13/month, with a whole range of insurance included.
A completely manageable online account
Who says online banking says application. The one for the SG is available on Android and iOS and is quite complete with many functions available, maybe even too many… We will tend to get lost, the interface should be simplified to be more ergonomic. In any case, making signings, modifying the roof or making an opposition becomes child’s play.
Contactless payment is possible via the NFC features of the phone, but only in Paylib and Apple Pay, unfortunately Google Pay is not included yet. However, we especially value the possibility of adding several accounts, even from another bank, and the categorization of expenses to keep an eye on budgets for food, rent, culture, high technology, etc.
How to get the bonus of 140 euros?
First you need to open an account, for this, enter your personal information and choose the offer that suits you best. You will then need to submit supporting documents such as a scan of your ID and a pay stub, once this is done your account will be operational within 5-7 days.
You will receive your welcome bonus of 80 euros if you make at least five card payments in the three months following the opening of the account. The remaining 60 euros will be assigned to you within two months after signing up for the banking mobility service offered by Société Générale. Thanks to this service, your new bank will itself take care of the change of bank for your direct debits and periodic transfers.
