HSBC has extended the promotions which I first reported on in February. There's a $75 cash bonus for opening its Interest Checking Account, and a $50 or $25 bonus for opening a savings account. These promotions were extended to May 31, 2008.
Note, the savings accounts qualifying for the bonus do not include the HSBC Direct Online Savings Account.
All of the promotion terms appear to be the same as I reported on in February. For the full details, please refer to that February HSBC post. Couple of readers who commented in that post didn't have good luck with previous HSBC promotions, so "your miles may vary". Two years ago I did a similar checking promotion, and I didn't have problems.
