Marquette Bank Free $75 Checking Bonus in Chicago

March 16th, 2009

Marquette Bank is offering a free $75 promotional bonus for opening their Totally Free Checking. You get a $25 gift card just for opening your account and a $50 gift card is given out if you sign up for online statements, sign up for online bill pay, or sign up for direct deposit.

You can apply for a checking account over the phone, but if you don’t live in the Chicago area the account must be approved by a manager. The application also results in a hard credit pull.

Marquette Bank is also offering promotional rates on their PremierMarq Money Market Account. You get a locked in rate for 90 days on the following amounts:

2.25% APY $10,000 – $24,999
2.5% APY $25,000 – $49,999
2.75% APY $50,000 – $99,999
3% APY $100,000 and more

You must also have a checking account with Marquette to get these rates but you can’t get the promotional $75 and the promotional money market rates as well. It’s one or the other.

Branches of Marquette are located in Chicago and its suburbs. Marquette has a 3 out of 5 star soundness rating from bankrate.com and is a FDIC insured bank. If you’re starting to do your taxes check out our tax savings tips.

Financial literacy is critical in these uncertain times, and online resources are readily available to help us all increase our disposable income. Remember though, that as far as save money tips go, you would be well-served to take advantage of these rather large lump sums banks sometimes give away simply for opening a checking account, rather than relying only on things like trying to save money on groceries or dreaming up new ways to make extra money.
