PNC and National City Free $75 Checking Account Bonus
It seems like there’s always a $75 bonus at PNC Bank and National City and now is no different. PNC Bank and National City are offering a new free $75 bonus when you open a checking account promotion. If you’re currently a PNC or National City customer, you’re excluded from this promotion.
For PNC Bank this bonus isn’t as good as their previous promotion because you need to setup direct deposit to receive the bonus. The direct deposit must be for at least $500 and you need to open your checking account by May 9th, 2009.
You can open their Free Checking Account which only requires a $25 opening balance and has no minimum balance requirement and no monthly maintenance fees. Their is a fee if you close your account within 6 months of opening it, so be aware of that.
PNC Bank branches are located in Delaware, Florida, Virginia, Kentucky, New Jersey, Ohio, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Washington DC.
The National City promotion is a little harder to get. You need to open the account by March 30th, 2009 and setup a direct deposit of at least $250 in the first 60 days. You also need to make 10 debit card purchases in the first 60 days. You can fill out an online application if you’re from Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
