      Hello Elliott,

      We update this list of bank promotions on a regular basis and all of the offers that are listed here at any given time should be current and available.

      Not all of these offers give specific expiration dates, so some of them can expire at any time and go unnoticed, but we strive to keep this list as accurate as possible at all times.

      If you notice any offers that are expired, please feel free to post a comment, and I’ll update the list accordingly.

      Thank you for your comment, Max

  1. PATRICIA says

    Could you alos update the DEADLINE, RELATIONSHIP, STATES or CITIES qualified for the bank bonus as well? Thanks. Patricia

  2. Elliott Marshall says

    PNC Bank:

    Get up to $150 when you open a new Virtual Wallet with Performance spend or other select checking accounts. Simply establish a qualifying direct deposit and make at least one payment with PNC Online Bill Pay.

    Visit PNC.com and click “checking” or all 877-CALL PNC

    Read terms and conditions carefully:

    New personal checking account must be opened between 5/31/12 and 6/30/12. To qualify for the $150 reward, a qualifying direct deposit must be received and at least 1 payment must be completed via PNC Online Bill Pay within 60 days. yada yada yada

    PNC recently purchased RBC. (Royal Bank Canada) I believe this offer is valid at all USA locations and online.

    BTW: I was not “happy” with RBC (before they were acquired by PNC) when they had a similar promotion over 1 year ago.

    BUT…. It is “FREE Money” and that always makes me happy. :)

  3. Elliott Marshall says

    Chase (J.P.Morgan);

    $125 Gift Card. Simply open a Chase Total Checking account and set up direct deposit.

    This is available to coupon holders only. To get a coupon, simply request a “change of address” kit from your local Post Office. The kit includes coupons along with change of address forms, etc.

    As an added bonus, these kits often include a coupon for your local major grocery chain for $5.00 off $20 purchase. (Or something similar) Of course, the coupons change regularly, so check back often.

  4. a00274t says

    Bank-of-Texas and Regions are total rip-offs.
    Regions outright denied my bonus.
    Bank-of-Texas paid the $100 and a month after opening started charging $8 monthly fee chipping away at the bonus.
    Both were a waste of time!

      Hello Nicholas,

      I’ve updated this page to a new chart format.

      You can now enter your state name in the Search box at the top right of the chart, and this will filter the promotions by state.

      Thank you very much for leaving your feedback.

      I hope this makes it more usable for you.

      Thanks again, Max

  5. elliot marshall says

    That time of year again, where I re-qualified to get a “new” Chase account and bonus after closing my “old” Chase account 6 months + a week or two ago.

    Thanks for the coupon code, Max!

    Coupon for $200 bonus motivated me to move quickly, with a 15 Nov 2013 expiration. Opened account end of October. Initiated transfer (direct deposit) from my Pay Pal account on 1 November. Received and processed at Chase on 4 November.

    BONUS of free $200.00 credited 13 November 2013!!! THAT was fast and painless!!!!!!

    A “normal” transfer from Pay Pal to a bank account is usually coded as an ACH transaction. That means it should “qualify” as a direct deposit.

    I’m a “serious” bank promotion “whore”, and usually have more than 2+ bank accounts open at the same time. (Once had 6 open for a short period. Each was a $100+ bonus offer) Meeting the “direct deposit” caveat of their terms & conditions for the free accounts and to receive the bonus can be a challenge. Pay Pal has often “worked” to qualify my accounts.

    Of course, keeping enough in Pay Pal to be able to make those transfers (ie: direct deposits) could be a challenge to some. I also use my Pay Pal account and pre-paid debit card because I receive 1.5% cash back each month. (grandfathered in, current new customers get 1%) I transfer money from my SS check to Pay Pal every month from whichever bank receives it. It is the only card I use, and I use it for every purchase I possibly can. That cash back does add up.

    Works for me.

  6. elliot marshall says

    Commenting twice in one day. I must be planning to open another bonus offer bank account. LOL

    Reviewing the terms and conditions for POPULAR BANK I found the terms listed on the Maximizing Money page have changed.

    They now are, as copied from the banks page:

  7. elliot marshall says

    My previous message did not show the quote from the Popular Bank offer page.

    Terms now are shown as:

    ✝ Minimum opening deposit is $50 ($25 in NY). Receive $75 when you make 3 ACH direct deposits of $500 or more. Receive $50 when you make 5 online bill payments or preauthorized withdrawals.Cash bonus requirements must be met within 90 days of checking account opening, and will be credited to your checking account within 60 days after the requirements have been met. Your account must be open to receive the cash bonus. Offer may be changed or withdrawn at any time. Account bonuses are limited to one per customer, per lifetime and subject to IRS Form 1099-INT. Please refer to the Personal Checking Disclosures for account details.

    I too could be considered a “bank bonus whore” lol ! I keep a chart “Andrew’s free money”. I’ve not had any problems with ACH transfers so far working to fulfill direct deposit- I did the Popular one, I was able to get $ 100 (couldn’t make it into branch so unable to get the other $25). Capitalone360 is a very easy one and is haviing a “black friday sale”. Anyway, I keep a running tab, I just started doing it this year…I’ve already got $1125 with $160 “pending”. Elliot Marshall we should talk!

    Hi Max,

    As usual, I’m “looking” for ‘new’ bank promotions to take advantage of. My 2013 “results” were less than I feel they should have been. LOL

    Anyway, I am specifically looking for Debit Cards offering cash back when used as a “credit card”. I have no interest in pure credit cards, only prepaid type debit cards, or debit cards offering cash back that are linked to a bank account.

    I have a Pay Pal card, since their inception, and love it. However, I still want to get a second one for other reasons, if it offers significant cash back on purchases.

    Any suggestions?

    this page can use some help.
    the $$ bonus sorts as a text. it needs to be be numeric.
    Also if the offers can be filtered by state, it will help rather than to review the entire 243 entries :-)

    thanks

      Hello al,

      Thank you for your comment.

      You can filter the bonuses by state by typing the name of your state in the Search box at the top right side of the bank chart.

      This will cause only bank bonuses within your state to appear.

      I also labeled bonuses that are available in all states as “AAA – All States,” which I did for the filtering issues that you mention.

      You are correct about the Bonus field, as it doesn’t filter numerically, so it causes some issues if you’re trying to easily see the highest bonus amount, as you may have to click it twice to reverse the order.

      I’ll look into seeing if I can fix some of the filtering issues, but I’m somewhat limited with it.

      Thank you very much for commenting, as I do appreciate the feedback.

      Max

    Hi, long time reader of your site. I have just gotten a bonus from Wells Fargo Bank. The standard offer for a new checking account with DD is $50, but bank employee told me a way to get a $100 offer. If you use another banks debit/atm card in one of their atm’s it prompts an offer for $100 to open a new account.$50 is all it takes to open, bonus is credited a few weeks after first DD. offer code ATM100.
    printout coupon from branch atm and take it inside to use, at least here in Fort Worth TX, not sure if it is nationwide promotion.

    Re: Current PNC bonuses:

    I opened a new and “qualifying” PNC account on Tuesday, 8/26/2014 in person with a coupon. Had to wait until today, 8/28/2014 to set up and use my online banking.

    I than set up, and paid, one online banking bill pay transaction.

    I transferred (via an ACH) the requisite amount to qualify for the Direct Deposit portion of their coupon offer. That deposit will probably hit the account on 9/4/2014.

    I only opened this bank account because I would earn a $300 bonus, and I had enough available money.

    I have completed my “obligation” of their coupon offer (once my ACH direct deposit hits the account) and expect my bonus on/before November 5, 2014.

    I have fulfilled the MINIMUM activity requirements for this offer, and do not intend to use the account. Just parking some money to earn very little interest until my bonus is paid.

    I will return to this comment section with any news, updates, or when my bonus is paid.

    Some negative comments on the internet about PNC paying their bonus offers has me somewhat concerned. I WAS definitely underwhelmed at the banking officer I dealt with in their branch. And I am not thrilled with their telephone people, having had long waits.

    BUT, I am a “Bank Bonus Whore”. 2014 has provided me with $325.00 already, and another $300 due. That’s over $50.00 per month in 2014.

    MAX – I am wondering if the Chase Checking account deals are not available in some states or zips. I live in Northern Virginia and when I try to open an account online through chase website, it does not line my zip code.
