Washington Savings Bank has some interesting deposit deals. First, it has a checking account promotion in which you can earn a free wireless netbook. Here's the promo page link with the deal listed as of 5/03/2010. Here's a copy of their requirements:
Simply activate the following services on any new or existing checking account:
* Active Debit Card (at least 10 transactions per month for two months)
* Online Banking with estatements (both during promo period)
* Direct Deposit (At least monthly of at least $1,000 into any checking account)
Applying Online? Use promo code "Netbook"
Note, you can apply online. However, the first page of the application states:
We can only accept applications from Massachusetts and New Hampshire at this time.
The only problem with checking account bonuses that are gifts is that the bank may include a over-priced value of the gift on your 1099-INT. So please keep that in mind.
Washington Savings Bank has branches in the Massachusetts cities of Lowell, Dracut and Tyngsboro.
The bank's ratings for safety and soundness are mixed: 5 stars (superior) at BauerFinancial and 3 stars (performing) at Bankrate.com. Both ratings are based on 12/31/09 financial data. The bank has been a FDIC member since 1985 (FDIC Certificate # 90229).
