$75 Checking Account/Debit Card Bonus at US Bank


US Bank (OH)
US Bank is offering a $75 in free gas for opening a checking account and using the checking account check card to make gas purchases. This promotion doesn't seem to be listed at US Bank's website. It was advertised in today's Oakland Tribune. The ad is available online here. The nice thing about this bonus is that it doesn't require direct deposit. Here are the requirements:
  • Visit your local branch by 9/26/2008
  • Open any new Free Checking Account
  • Spend up to $75 on fill-ups with your new check card
Some of the important small print of the offer includes:
  • Check card gas purhcases must be non-PIN based
  • Check card gas purchases must take place within 30 days of the new checking account opening
  • Gas receipts must be brought into the branch where the account was opened by 10/31/2008
  • Cash bonus equal to the total on the receipts (up to $75) will be deposited into the checking account
  • One bonus per household
  • Bonus will be reported as interest earned on IRS Form 1099-INT
  • Promotion not valid if you have received other US Bank bonus offers in the past 6 months
The Free Checking Account has a $50 minimum opening deposit requirement. There are no minimum balance requirements or monthly maintenance fees.

Update 9/15/08: A reader has been informed by a US Bank rep that this offer is only available in California. Update 9/17/08: Another reader was told this offer is available in Las Vegas, NV.

US Bank has branches in 26 states, but I'm not sure if this promotion is available outside of the Bay Area of California. Please check with your local US Bank branch to see if they'll honor this promotion.

US Bank has been FDIC insured since 1934 (FDIC Certificate # 6548).
