    Thanks for the heads up but not available in my state. Oh well!

    If you don’t qualify for this bonus because you don’t live in one of the eligible states, there’s a promotion going on for a Chase $100 checking bonus with similar terms and conditions that expires on April 30. The main difference is that you must deposit $100 instead of $50.

  4. Yana says:

    @Darren – another main difference is that BB&T is not Chase. But for those who don’t care who is offering the bonus, that’s good info.

    I signed up for this, and mentioned in the customer satisfaction survey that popped up at the end of the online application process. I’ve been paying close attention to all your posts about checking account promotions, because I have a Wachovia account that was recently converted to Wells Fargo, and the conversion process is turning out to be major headache. PNC Bank had a monthly service fee, I already have a Chase account, and M&T required too high of a minimum deposit. This one had easy requirements and a reasonable minimum balance. Thanks to your site, I was able to make an informed decision & will get $100! Thanks for spreading the word about all these good banking promotions:-)

  8. I grabbed this promotion, and the one for BofA. I am in the process of trying to switch my primary banking institution, and so this is a trial run for both. May the best bank win. 🙂

    I signed up for this and am waiting for my $100 reward. It says it will be deposited into my account within 102 days, so we will see if it really happens lol I feel like they will find some reason to not give it to me…
