Bank of America offers $25 to open new Personal Checking Accounts, $10 for new Student Checking Accounts, and $50 for new Business Checking Accounts if you are referred by a current Bank of America checking account member.
You can also earn additional banking bonuses if you open other Bank of America accounts at the same time, and once you become a checking account member, you can start earning referral fees as well.
To earn the personal checking, business checking, and student checking account bonuses, you must print out a Bank of America referral form and present the referral coupon when applying in person at your local Bank of America banking center, but you can also earn the business checking account bonus when you apply online via an email referral from a current Bank of America customer.
