- Open any business checking with a $5,000 minimum opening deposit
- Sign up for a no-fee Business Check Card
- And open one of the following: web banking, business deposit capture, business credit card or business loan or line of credit.
The bonus won't be awarded until the account has been opened for 6 months. The account must be opened by February 29, 2008. According to the service rep, business accounts require that you provide your state business license/registration papers. You can't just claim to be a sole proprietor. Please check with the bank for the exact documents that are required.
Personal Checking Account Bonus
They also have a $100 bonus for opening a personal checking account. I don't have the promo link for this one. I tried several combinations of "/something", but with no luck. The service rep didn't have the page either, but she did confirm the promotion and provided some details. Like the business bonus, they won't reward it until 6 months after the account has been opened. Here are some of the details:
- Open any personal checking account
- Sign up for a Check Card
- Establish Direct Deposit or automatic transfers from your Comerica savings to checking account
The account must be opened by March 10, 2008. Note, their checking and savings accounts have monthly maintenance fees unless you maintain a certain balance or have other services like direct deposit. This promotion seems very similar to one that Comerica offered last year.
According to the bank rep, there's NO hard credit pull when you open a checking accounts. They just do a ChexSystem verification. Note, CSRs are often wrong about hard pulls.
You can apply at a branch or by phone. It's only available to people in states which have Comerica branches. Branches are located in Arizona, Florida, Texas, California and Michigan.
The bank has been FDIC insured since 1934 (Certificate # 983).
Thanks to the reader who mentioned this bonus in the finding-the-best-deals post and to FW member Waffles who posted it in this FW thread.
