Earn Up to $100 in PNC Bank's Checking Account Promotion


PNC Bank is offering up to $100 in cash rewards for opening a personal checking account and for making Visa check card purchases and online bill payments. To earn the maximum $100 will require some work. PNC will pay you $1 for qualifying purchases made using your PNC Bank Visa Check Card and completed online bill payments made through October 31, 2007. You must be a new PNC Bank personal checking customer, and you must open the checking account by July 31, 2007. Here's the promotional page link.

Free Checking qualifies for this promo. This requires a minimum $25 initial deposit. It has no monthly fees or minimum balance requirements. Bill Pay is free. I was told by the banking rep that the first 30 checks are free.

I was told by the CSR that you must apply online for this promotion, and it's available to people in any state. Branches are located in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Virginia, Kentucky, New Jersey, Ohio, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. The bank is FDIC insured (FDIC Certificate # 6384).

[Edit 11:00am, Commenter noted a previous PNC checking promotion in which PNC required a branch visit for the promo. You might want to get confirmation with a PNC rep before applying.]

Are you sure that this can be applied online? A few months ago, there was a similar offer with 50 transactions for 50 dollars, and I applied online. PNC sent me a mail to say I have to goto branch.

I forgot to ask about the hard pull.

Hongjun, the CSR did say it's available for those in any state. In fact, she said that you are required to apply online for this. Since the promo page has an apply button, this seems to make sense. But based on your previous attempt at a PNC bonus, you may want to confirm this yourself and make sure you record the CSR's id or name.
