Ally Bank will automatically renew your CDs unless you tell them otherwise (you have a ten day grace period from the renewal date to change your mind) and they have sweetened the offer by bumping up the rate by 0.25% from prevailing rates.

Here’s the email:

TD Bank Checking Account Promotion: Free Flip Ultra Camcorder

TD Bank LogoTD Bank joins the recent spate of new account bank deals and they join the fray with our modern day equivalent of a toaster, a Flip Ultra Camcorder. I have one of these cameras and they’re great because of how easy it is to use and how portable it can be. It’s better than a toaster, far better.

So what do you need to do to get the promotion?

New Chase $100 Checking Account Bonus

ChaseThis promotion has ended.

If you’ve been thinking about opening a checking account at Chase, then they’ve announced a new checking account promotion that is perfect for you. How about $100 to open a checking account with at least $100 in new money to Chase, 5+ debit card transactions in 60 days (or a direct deposit), and keep that account open for 6 months. Then a cool hundred is deposited into your account 10 days after meeting those requirements. This is one of the few promotions that doesn’t require a direct deposit, which is pretty rare.

PNC Checking Account $100 Bonus Promotion

PNC Bank LogoIf you’re looking for a new checking account and live in DC, DE, FL, IN, KY, MD, NJ, OH, PA or VA, they are running a $100 promotion for new PNC personal checking accounts. The requirements are slightly higher than your average checking account bonus promotion but not onerus. You need to open a qualifying checking account, setup a direct deposit, and make ten check card purchases with your new PNC Bank Visa check card. Your account will be credited with the $100 within 60 days of the direct deposit and ten purchases. The promotion ends April 30th, 2010 and you need to satisfy the conditions by June 30th, 2010.

PNC offers a free checking account with no minimum balance requirement, though your initial deposit must be $25 or more, and no monthly service charge plus they reimburse non-PNC Bank ATM fees if you have an average monthly balance over $2,000. You can see the schedule of fees here. Also, if you’re curious about deposit rates, they’re not great. At the moment, PNC’s deposit rates on certificates of deposit are below the nationally available best CD rates available.

Most promotions of this type are time based, not check card use based, which makes this promotion somewhat “easier.” More details are available on this promotion page.
