If you were thinking about opening a checking account at Citizens Bank, they have a promotion where you can get $240. All you need to do is open a Green Checking, Circle Checking, or Circle Gold Checking account and make at least 5 qualifying online bill payments of $50 or more each month. Every month you do that, they’ll give you $40 and they’ll do that for six months.
It’s one of the trickier promotions out there, you’ll have to find five online bill payments, but it’s also one of the richest as each of the checking accounts have existing promotions. For example, if you go with paperless statements, you can get paid up to $120 a year for that. The “cheapest” account is the Green Checking, which waives the $4.99 monthly service charge if you make 5 qualifying bill payments each month or maintain an average balance of $1500.
Just open any one of our checking accounts below and we’ll pay you $40 a month for each month you make at least 5 qualifying online bill payment transactions of $50 or more. It’s good for up to 6 months — so you can get paid up to $240. Plus, bank with us and you’ll also enjoy free in-person consultations, 24/7 banking online, on the phone and on your mobile device, supermarket branches open 7 days a week, and great rewards. It’s what good banking is all about.
You can sign up for an account here . Promotion ends May 6, 2011.
