Fifth Third Bank $200 Checking Account Bonus Promotion

Fifth Third Bank is offering a $200 bonus when you open a personal checking account with a qualifying direct deposit.

Fifth Third Bank has branches in Ohio, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and West Virginia.

In order to open an account, you must live in these states or within a 50 mile radius of a branch.

How To Earn $200 Bonus

You must open a new personal checking account that remains open for 90 days, and an automatic direct deposit of $100 or more must be received within 60 days of account opening.

You can use the MA Code 95403 (valid through August 31, 2014) when opening your account by phone at 1-800-333-7595.

Otherwise, you’ll need to present a coupon code that you received in the mail if you want to open your account in person at a Fifth Third Bank branch.

Check out this Fifth Third Bank Promotional Page for more details about the offer and the checking account requirements.

There is also this Alternative Fifth Third Bank Promo Link available for a $250 or $150 bonus, which also requires a valid MA Code.

Special Notes

1. MA Code 95403 seems to be working by multiple users in different states when calling by telephone, so that should be a valid code.

2. They do a soft pull and use ChexSystems when opening an account, so there is no hard pull.

3. Capital One 360 ACH transfers have worked as a direct deposit for some users in the past.

4. Some regions have reported a $150 bonus instead of $200.

Promotional Terms of Bonus

The checking account must be opened by the date listed on your postcard, but if you didn’t receive a postcard, this date may vary, so your best bet is just to call and try to open an account.

The account must remain open for 90 days, and an automatic direct deposit of $100 or more must be received within 60 days of account opening.

Direct deposit transactions are limited to payroll, Social Security, pension, and government benefits, but as reported above, some users have had luck in the past with bank-to-bank ACH transfers.

Business checking accounts are excluded from this offer.

The MA code on the mail piece must be presented at a banking center or referenced when opening your account by phone to receive the bonus.

The cash bonus will be deposited into your checking account and available within 5 business days after receipt of the first automatic direct deposit of $100 or more.

There is a limit of 1 offer per account per household.

This promotion is not valid with any other offer.

The $200 cash bonus offer is valid for any eligible interest bearing or non-interest bearing checking account.

    Do not call 1-800-333-7595 for 53 Bank’s $200 bank bonus–this 53 Bank branch has refused to offer any of 53 Bank’s $200 bank bonus. But, 1-800-972-3030 has offered $200 bank bonus.

    I called today to open the account on the phone with MA Code 10387.. to my extreme disappointment.. the CSR said the code was expired already. :/

    Does anyone have a new code?
