Please refer to my April Chase post for all the details about this promo, the checking account and Chase branch locations.
One thing that has changed is that you can now avoid monthly service charges on the checking by using your debit card 5 times a month instead of direct deposit. This is now listed at the Chase checking page.
Another $75 By Using the Chase Debit Card
Once you have a Chase checking account, you can get another $75 by using the Chase Visa Check Card. You can get 10% cash back (maximum of $75) on all your purchases made through June 15, 2008. The money is deposited to your checking account after you've earned $25. I'm happy to report that I've received my first $25 credit last week. So far the process has been very smooth. Please see this Chase post for more details.
Hat tip to Hustler for mentioning this new promotion in the finding-the-best-deals post.
