4GB iPod nano Checking Account Bonus at a Hawaii Bank (Central Pacific)


Central Pacific Bank
Central Pacific Bank is offering an iPod when you open one of its checking accounts and make the necessary initial deposit. Here's the promotional page. The 1GB iPod shuffle gift requires a $1,000 opening deposit, and the 4GB iPod nano gift requires a $10,000 opening deposit.

Some of the important small print of the offer includes:
  • For this offer, Central Pacific Bank reserves the right to charge a $200 fee if the new account is closed within 180 days.
  • iPod gift offer available for accounts opened at Central Pacific Bank branches in the State of Hawaii only
  • Value of iPod gift will be reported as interest

From a quick check on the web, I see you can get a 1GB iPod shuffle for $49 at B&H Photo Video, and you can get a 4GB iPod nano for $149 at

The qualifying checking accounts include the Choice Checking which is a reward checking account that pays 4% APY if you meet certain monthly requirements. It has no monthly service charges or minimum balance requirements. I reported on this checking account in April.

Most of the branches are located on Oahu, but there are a few branches on each of the other major Hawaiian islands. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1954 (FDIC Certificate # 17308).

They will give you a silver ipod Nano but you have 14 days to exchange colors at any Apple store.
