First Niagara Bank is offering a $100 Choice Checking account bonus through March 8, 2013.
However, this is a targeted offer that was mailed out to potential customers, and the fine print indicates that you must be the recipient of the letter offer to qualify.
Even so, you may still be able to qualify for this promotion if you didn’t get the letter, so it might be worth calling customer service or applying in person with a print-out of the promotional page to see if you can still get the bonus.
You must open a new First Niagara Choice, Pinnacle, or PinnaclePlus Checking account.
Within 60 days, you must complete 1 direct deposit of $250 or more into your new First Niagara checking account OR have 10 qualifying bill payments OR have 10 debit card transactions using your new First Niagara debit card.
Check out this First Niagara Bank Promo Page for more details.
The cash bonus will be directly deposited into your new checking account within 30 days from the end of the month in which you satisfy all offer requirements.

Take advantage of this First Niagara Bank offer, but remember that it is targeted, so you may wish to open your account either in-person at a branch or by phone in order to attempt to qualify.
