B. Advertising offering a "bonus" or "premium" must conspicuously state the terms under which the bonus or premium may be collected. Should the bonus or premium represent a prepayment of interest, that fact shall be conspicuously stated in the advertisement.
C. Advertising for consumer deposit accounts must also meet the requirements of Section V of this regulation.
