New Chase $100 Checking Account Bonus

This 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.

Here’s are the specifics of what you need to do to get the $100 bonus:

It’s a pretty standard checking account promotion offer with one caveat, the account needs to remain open for a minimum of 6 months or the bonus will be taken away. The bonus is reported as interest on a 1099-INT, which is typical, and the Chase Checking account has no monthly service fee if you have a direct deposit or make at least five debit card purchases each statement period (typically a month). If you don’t have a direct deposit or make 5 transactions, then the monthly service fee is $6 per month.

Unfortunately, this offer expires May 28th, 2010 and isn’t available for existing Chase checking customers.
