$50 Checking Account Bonus at National Bank of Kansas City - Local Only - Update


National Bank of Kansas City

National Bank of Kansas City is offering a $50 Gift Card for opening a personal checking account. You have a choice of either an Amazon Gift Card or a VISA Gift Card. A $50 bonus is small, but this promotion doesn't seem to require direct deposit, and their Completely Free Checking appears to qualify. Offer expires 4/24/2010. Below is some of the important small print:

  • Minimum deposit to open is $50
  • Value of gift reported to IRS
  • Limit two gifts per household
  • Checking account must remain open for 90 days

The bank also has a generous refer-a-friend program. Refer a friend, and when they open a personal checking account you'll receive a $50 Amazon or VISA Gift Card.

This promotion is very similar to the one they offered last year. At that time the checking accounts and this promotion were only local deals. I can't find any geographic limitation in this current promotion, and it does give an online option to open accounts. However, I'm not calling it a nationwide deal unless I get confirmation.

Branches are located in Excelsior Springs, Lee's Summit, Liberty and Platte City, Missouri and in Leawood and Overland Park, Kansas. The bank has been a FDIC member since 1999 (FDIC Certificate # 35014).

You're definetely right. A $50 promotion isn't that big but it's good for promoting their new products or getting new customers. I also do hope NBK (National Bank of Kansas) has Credit Offers since I would be needing it alot.

I opened this account and it is an easy bonus to get.  They handed me the $50 gift card after I opened the account.  I plan to go back soon with a friend so we can both get $50.
