Chase Bank Checking Account Free $100 Promotion

This promotion has expired. Chase Bank is offering the same deal that WaMu was offering, a free $100 bonus when you open a new online checking account with at least $100 and either sign up for direct deposit or make 5 debit card purchases. This one is a little different from the WaMu one was though. You need to enter in your email address from the link in this post and print out the coupon it provides then bring it in to a Chase branch. edit: A reader pointed out that you don’t need a branch visit, there’s a button underneath the email to apply for the bonus online. Thanks to the reader that pointed this out. edit #2: Another reader pointed out you must have the account open for 6 months or the bonus will be taken back, thanks for pointing this out.

One thing to note is that Chase’s checking account requires either direct deposit or 5 debit card purchases a month, every month, to avoid a monthly service fee.

Once you receive your first direct deposit or your 5th pin-based debit card purchase, you’ll receive your $100 bonus within 10 days. This promotion is not available in California and is good until June 23rd, 2009.
