$200 Checking Account Bonus at a New York City Bank (Metropolitan National Bank)

POSTED ON BY

Metropolitan Commercial Bank
Metropolitan National Bank is offering a $200 bonus for opening its free checking account and activating direct deposit of recurring payroll, government benefits or retirement account disbursements. The $200 bonus will be credited to the account after the first direct deposit posts. Account must remain open and direct deposit active for 6 months from the date of account opening or the $200 bonus will be debited upon account closure. The bonus will be reported on IRS form 1099-INT.

One notable perk of the free checking is the rebates of foreign ATM fees. Like the typical free checking there are no monthly service fees, no minimum balance requirements and online bill pay is free.

It appears to require a branch visit. If you find out otherwise, please leave a comment. Branches are located New York city. The bank is FDIC insured (FDIC Certificate # 34699).

Thanks to the reader who mentioned this special in the finding deals post.

Paypal does not count as DD but you can open account on line.
They are supposed to call you back to open the account.

I opened this account and set up DD but they haven't posted the bonus. Getting in touch with anyone at this bank is very difficult as they have no customer service line and don't pick up the branch phones.

it looks like the bank is now accepting new checking accounts online at their website www.metropolitanbankny.com; I called the bank in New York and was told they have a new toll free number (866-435-9099)too.
