See our update with a new code.
If you plan on opening a new checking account at Chase, use one of the following bonus codes to receive a $100 bonus.
Generate your own $100 Chase Checking Coupon HERE. (Expires August 14th, 2010)
The codes are only valid for one use each, so you’ll have to be quick to use one before someone else does. There is some fine print, of course, restricting you to certain account features in order to receive the free money. You can bring a coupon code to a branch or use one to open the checking account online.
This is not a free checking account; in order to avoid an undisclosed monthly fee, you will need to use the account for direct deposit or have at least five debit card purchases each month. After some research online, I was able to quickly discover that this fee is $6 per month.
Here is what it says on the back of the certificate:
To qualify for the reward you must open new Chase Checking account with a $100 minimum opening deposit of new money (money not currently held at Chase or its affiliates). Bonus will be automatically deposited into your new account within 10 business days of account opening, but not considered part of minimum opening deposit… Your Chase Checking account must remain open for a minimum of six months or the bonus will be debited from the account at closing… Bonus is considered interest and will be reported on IRS for 1099-INT.
These codes won’t last long, so good luck.
In addition to the Chase $100 Checking Account Bonus, Chase is also offering a $100 cash back bonus on their Chase Freedom® Visa – $100 Bonus Cash Back + 0% Intro APR.
