$75 Gift Card Checking Account Bonus at Wachovia in Texas


Wachovia Bank
Wachovia is offering a $75 Academy gift card for opening its free checking account. The promo is listed at Academy's website. It points to this Wachovia promo page. A minimum initial deposit of $100 is required. Accounts can be opened at a Wachovia branch or by phone. The value of the gift card will be reported to the IRS. Offer expires 9/28/07.

If you often shop at Academy in Texas, this is a little better than Wachovia's $50 cash bonus that's still available (see post).

Wachovia still has a $125 checking account bonus available in California. It's scheduled to end on 8/31/07 (see post). To see other past Wachovia deals, please refer to this page.

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.

Credit for this find goes to FW member jaw1993 who mentioned this bonus in this FW thread.
