$75 Bonus for Checking Account at TCF Bank


Get up to $75 when you open any new personal or small business checking account with recurring automatic payment and direct deposit services. You also have the choice to establish just one of these sevices for a $50 bonus. The account must be opened by 3/17/06 and recurring services must post by 5/15/06.

TCF's Totally Free Checking Account has no minimum balance requirements or monthly service charges.

This special is not listed at the bank's website. It was advertised in the February 19th edition of The Denver Post, and the ad is available online here. A commenter also mentioned this deal in this post about TCF's 5% 8-month CD. As the commenter mentioned, you may be able to get this $75 bonus for opening a checking account and then the 5% 8-month CD. However, you have to hurry since the CD special expires today.

This checking account deal might just be for the Denver area. If you see it offered elsewhere, please leave a comment.

TCF has 453 banking locations in six states, including Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Colorado and Indiana.
