Free iPod nano Checking Account Bonus at Bank of North Georgia


Bank of North Georgia
Bank of North Georgia is offering a free iPod nano with the following requirements:
  • opening a personal checking account before June 20, 2008
  • enrolling in online banking
  • make 3 bill payments by July 31, 2008
They'll ship the iPod nano by October 1, 2008. Some of the important small print includes:
  • not available to current personal checking account customers
  • limit one per household
  • offer while supplies last
  • value of iPod nano will be reported on form 1099-INT
  • early account closure fee if closed before 90 days
  • iPod nano shippped may differ from iPod nano shown
This last detail is important since they're displaying what looks to be a Third Generation iPod nano. On the web I found a 1GB First Generation iPod nano going for as little as $70. I found a 2GB Second Generation one going for $132, and a 4GB Third Generation one going for $140. Hopefully, the bonus will be a Third Generation one, but it looks like there's no guarantee.

It appears their Signature Free Checking qualifies. This has no monthly fees, and Bill Pay is also free.

This deal is likely to require a branch visit. Branches are located in Atlanta, Alpharetta, Fayetteville, Marietta, Roswell and several other Georgia cities. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1960 (FDIC Certificate # 31203).

Thanks to the reader who emailed me this deal.

Signed up for this today....value of the iPOD is $162 so likely 3rd gen. Also requires a hard credit pull.
