E*TRADE Bank has once again extended its $25 sign-up bonus on its 5.05% APY Complete Savings Account. The bonus is now available to accounts opened by 2/15/2008. The last one expired in December.
Here's the ETrade promotional page link for this bonus, and here are the details from that page with the important points highlighted:
$25 will be credited to your Complete Savings Account within 30 days of the account being funded with a minimum deposit of $1. Payments will be reported as interest income. Accounts must be opened by 2/15/2008 to quality for the $25 offer. Must be a new account opened with new funds. Offer applies to one new account per customer. Not good with any other offer.
Last March I received this $25 bonus without any problems. However, several commenters have mentioned that they had to call before the bonus was credited. So be sure to keep track of when you sign up, keep a copy of the promo page, and if you don't receive the bonus in 30 days after funding the account, be sure to call.
In addition to a high yield without a minimum balance requirement, this Complete Savings Account has many nice features such as a fast ACH transfer system called Quick Transfer. E*TRADE Bank has maintained this 5.05% APY for much of the life of this account since it launched in November 2006. It did drop to 4.70% last October, but it then returned to 5.05% in late November.
