Chase Bank 2010 Presidents Day Bonus
Bank rates may be out of date. Please check bank websites for current rates.
I heard at my local Chase (formerly known as WaMu) branch that they are running the President’s Day bonus again for 2010. They ran bank promotion on last year and kept their branches open on President’s day 2009 for that reason.
To get the bonus, all you have to do is open a new checking account and deposit $100, and Chase will match that with a $100 bonus.
To remove the minimum fees, you’ll have to use your debit card 5x a month on signature based purchases, or set up a direct deposit for at least once per month. There is no minimum balance for the account.
You can also open a business checking account with $100 and get $100 free as well if you do not yet have one. You can open a business account with just your name and SSN as a sole proprietor, however the business accounts tend to have higher min deposits and requirements for waiving the monthly fee. Also Chase periodically has $200 bank bonuses for opening a business account so if you’re not in a rush I would hold off on a business checking account.
Your mileage may vary – be sure to call into your local Chase Bank to see if they are running this promotion on Monday. Applies to new customers only.
