Chase Total Checking $125 Promotion

This promotion has ended early.

Chase is offering new checking account customers, specifically the Chase Total Checking Account, a $125 cash bonus [3] if they satisfy certain simple conditions. The conditions are simpler than the PNC Bank promotion I wrote about earlier this week (for Chase you don’t need to use their debit card) and it offers a little more money.

Ten days after the direct deposit, Chase will deposit the $125 bonus into your account and you can only receive one checking account related bonus per year. Finally, the account needs to be open for at least six months or the bonus will be deducted. Expect a 1099 next year for the bonus amount.

The account does have services fees that can be avoided. You can avoid the $12 fee ($10 in California, Oregon, and Washington) if you do one of the following:

You can apply online or print a coupon and apply in person.
