So my DW took advantage of one of their bonuses not too long ago and it netted us a cool $300 bucks. Now, I got a new coupon to open a Premier Checking. Fine print:
Min balance (to avoid $25/mo fee): 15,000
Must have either 1) direct deposit of some sort or 2) Chase mortgage (first lien position only).
After 1st direct deposit is received, $400 bonus deposited to the account (this is the largest offer I have seen for a single checking account at Chase) within 10 days. Must keep account open for 6 months. So...even if you didn't maintain the min balance, then you would net $250 for parking $25 in a account for 6 months. Pretty good deal!
They will send a 1099.
I haven't seen any of the codes pop up online yet, but I would guess they will be out there pretty soon.
OK...gotta go to Chase and open an account.
