A special thank you goes out to our reader Alan for alerting me to this offer as well as to Doctor Of Credit for posting about this deal. Alan, who lives in Washington state, says, “I initially received the $250 checking offer in the mail with a personal bonus offer code. However, when I went to the website and typed in my zip code, the $250 offer was available and there wasn’t anywhere I had to enter my personal bonus offer code. So I believe it is available to anyone.”
