I actually took advantage of this a few months ago. If you have a chase credit card it is very convenient to pay that credit card through this checking account linked to a direct deposit. At the very least, you might as well take JP Morgan for the $100. It’s a way to take back some of the money that banks have taken from you over the years. Just make sure you leave it open for 6 months before you close it.
The Chase checking account is currently offering a $100 bonus when you open a new checking account and set up a direct deposit or make 5 debit card purchases, valid through December 31, 2009.
Just open a new Chase checking account with a minimum opening deposit of $100 by December 31, 2009.
Then within 60 days of opening the account, you must set up a direct deposit or make 5 debit card purchases.
The $100 Chase bonus will be credited to your new account within 10 business days of setting up the direct deposit or making the 5 debit card purchases.
Check out the Chase $100 Promo Link to apply online for your account or request a Chase promo code to apply in person.
There is a limit of 1 checking account reward per customer per calendar year, and the offer is not available to existing Chase checking customers.
Your Chase checking account must remain open for at least 6 months, or the bonus cash will be debited upon closing the account.
