SunTrust has again extended its My Cause checking promotion. SunTrust is offering a $50 SunTrust Visa Gift Card when you open a new personal or business checking account. You also have the choice to donate $100 to the charity of your choice instead of receiving the $50 Gift Card. The checking account must be opened by June 30, 2008, and you must accept their Visa Card and make a purchase with it by August 15, 2008.
SunTrust does have a Free Checking Account with no minimum balance requirements or monthly fees. Readers have reported a hard credit pull via Equifax (which can temporarily ding your credit score).
