New $50 Wachovia Checking Account Bonus and Other Bonus Updates


Wachovia Bank
Wachovia is once againg offering a $50 bonus for opening its Free Checking Account. However, unlike the one offered earlier this year, it has a direct deposit requirement. Here's the promotional page link. You can receive $25 when you open a Free Checking account with at least $100 in new funds. Receive an additional $25 when you use direct deposit to post at least $100 to the same account within 90 days. The account must be opened online through this promotional page, and it must be opened by 10/31/07.

Wachovia's free checking account has the basic components of free checking: no minimum balance requirements, no monthly fees, etc. A reader in the previous post mentioned that Wachovia does a hard credit pull (via Experian). Checks are not free, but they are optional. Prices vary by state. A reader just mentioned that Wachovia offered 50 duplicate checks for $8. There is a $25 fee if the account is closed before 6 months. In addition to the hard pull, Wachovia also does a ChexSystem verification. Regarding Direct Deposit, it has been reported on this FW thread that Wachovia has counted deposits from ING Direct as Direct Deposits.

Other Wachovia Bonuses

Last month Wachovia was offering a $100 VISA gift card for opening a checking account. This offer was only available to those in the Northeast. I was told this would be available until July 16th (see post).

There's a $125 checking account bonus for those in California. This was suppose to end in June, but I just noticed that it has been extended until 8/31/07. In this one you can get $75 bonus for opening a checking account with $500 then an additional $50 for Direct Deposit (see post).
