Elevations Credit Union is offering a $100 checking account bonus. There is no direct deposit requirement or debit card usage requirement. The promotion doesn't seem to be listed at the credit union's website. It was recently advertised in some Colorado newspapers. The ad is available online here. According to the ad, the steps required for the bonus include:
- Bring ad in with you when you open your account before September 30, 2009 (check with credit union to make sure they would accept a printout of ad)
- Deposit $25 into savings and open any checking account
- Keep your account through at least January 2, 2010
Elevations Credit Union does have a free checking account without monthly fees or minimum balance requirements. Minimum initial deposit is $20.
Anyone in Colorado is eligible to join the credit union, but it appears you would still need a branch visit to qualify for the promotion. According to the credit union's membership page:
If you live in Colorado you can join via a membership in Consumers United Association. A $5.00 membership fee gives you eligibility to join Elevations Credit Union
You can be eligble to join the credit union without the association membership if you live or work in Boulder County, Broomfield County, or surrounding areas. Refer to the membership page for the full details. Credit union membership requires a $25 minimum deposit into a savings account.
Branches are located in Boulder, Longmont and Lafayette, Colorado.
The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 68565).
