BMO Harris Bank $500 Targeted Offer Details
Updated 3/16/2017 – Promotion Working for Non-Targeted Users: Please note that I have provided copies of the $500 BMO coupon to several readers who have reported being able to successfully redeem them in-branch, so it’s worth a try if you are interested.
These specific bonuses for up to $500 with new checking and savings accounts have been mailed out to targeted people for a while now, as I’ve personally received a mailer about every other week for the last few months.
In order to qualify, you must bring your original mailer to a BMO Harris branch at account opening, but if you don’t receive a bonus flyer by mail, you could always try showing up in person and providing the Promo Code DMMAY17CHK500 or copying a picture of the flyer on your phone (email me at MaximizingMoney@gmail.com to request one), as BMO Harris may possibly accept you into the offer if they are looking to get new customers.
They do indicate that this offer is only available to accounts sharing the same address that is listed on the original mailer at the time of account opening, but if you show up ready to open accounts with the promotional code, you never know and they may just let you qualify.
Open a BMO Harris Bank personal checking account and/or savings account to qualify for up to $500 in cash rewards.
