$100 Chase Checking Account Bonus


Chase Manhattan Bank
Chase is advertising a $100 bonus for opening its Free Checking account with direct deposit. It seems to be their version of an After Thanksgiving Special since it's only available this Friday and Saturday (11/23/07 to 11/24/07). This may explain why all of their $125 promo pages went dead last week. I can't find a promo page for this new special, but it's being advertised in several newspapers around the country. The ad is available online here. There are no promo codes or coupons for this special.

The offer is only available in the following states: TX, IL, OH, CO, MI, OK, NY and UT. The checking account requires a minimum opening deposit of $100.

The other small print of this offer is the same as the $125 bonus that I posted on in October. Please refer to that Chase post for the bonus details and the things to watch out for.

For those not in one of the above states, Chase still has a $75 checking account bonus that's available online and doesn't require a branch visit. Here's that $75 promo page link. This bonus expires on 12/31/07. According to the small print, the cash bonus will be automatically deposited into your new account within 10 business days of account opening which is one advantage over the branch bonus.

[Edit: Online bonus link updated.]

The $75 online application ends on 10/15/2007. Is there another one that hasn't expired yet?

11/23/07 Tried to open an out-of-state online account (Cal) and was denied. Seems you have to make an in-bank appearance for identity verification, so says the CSR. Bummer- Al
