Its raining bonuses. Yesterday, we have seen a $300 bonus for opening a new checking account with Bank of America. Now it is Chase offering $450 bonus for opening qualifying accounts ($300 for Checking and $150 for Savings).
Earlier, we have seen targeted promotions from Chase with the same signup bonus. But this time, it is not a targeted promotion, it is open to every one as long as you do not own a Chase checking in the last 90 days or did not close your old account with negative balance.
Here are the steps:
1. Follow this link and register your email address to receive your unique coupon via email. I got the email with a unique code in few minutes.
2. Print the coupon and take it to your nearest chase bank
3. Open a Total Chase Checking and/or Chase Savings account with a $25 or more initial deposit before May 07, 2015.
4. Set up a direct deposit in to your Chase Total Checking account with in 60 days to receive $300 bonus within 10 business days.
5. If you also want $15o bonus for opening Chase Savings account, you need to deposit $10,000 or more in new money within 10 business days and maintain a balance of $10,000 or more for at least 90 days.
