$100 Checking Account Bonus and a Savings Program at Citizens Bank in Several States


Citizens Bank
Citizens Bank has a checking account promotion in which you can earn $100. They also have a savings program called Green$sense which is similar to Bank of America's Keep the Change program.

The details of the checking account bonus are listed at Offer ends 11/13/2009. The requirements to earn the $100 include:
  • $50 for setting up direct deposit of $500 or more
  • $25 for making 5 online bill payments
  • $25 for making 5 debit or credit card purchases
Citizens Bank also lists $120 for enrolling in GreenSense. However, this would require 100 debit card purchases, online bill payments or automatic payments per month for 12 months. For each of these non-paper transactions, Citizens Bank pays you 10 cents. Refer to the Green$sense page for more details. The Green Checking appears to qualify. It's a free checking account with no minimum balance requirement.

There's an online application. However, it appears to only accept zip codes in their market area. Their market area includes much of the Northeast along with Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Michigan.

Citizens Bank operates under two FDIC charters: Citizens Bank of Pennsylvania (FDIC Certificate # 57282) and RBS Citizens, N.A. which has branches in several states outside of PA and NJ (FDIC Certificate # 57957).

I just went and opened one of these in person in RI. I was told that the deadline for doing all the transactions was December 31, 2009. She had to call if to get the info from it (wasn't even in the brochures for internal use only). If someone else could confirm the date it would be useful for others thinking of opening an account.
