$100 Gas Card Checking Account Promotion in the Suburbs of Chicago


Hinsdale Bank & Trust Company

Two banks that are part of Hinsdale Bank & Trust Company are offering a $100 gas gift card for opening their Community Checking account with direct deposit. The offer is scheduled to end on 5/31/2011.

These banks operate as Community Bank of Downers Grove and Clarendon Hills Bank. This promotion doesn't appear to be listed on these banks' websites. They were advertised in the My Suburban Life news. The Clarendon Hills ad is available here and the Downers Grove ad is available here.

Below is the relevant small print of the offer. I excluded the details of the APY since the rates are so low.

New Money Only. New checking customers only. May not be combined with any other offer. Requires activation of direct deposit within the first three months of account opening. No minimum deposit to open account and receive Gift card.
The Gift card will be provided once direct deposit is established. Gift card is good while supplies last. Gift card is subject to IRS 1099 reporting. Gift card offer expires 5/31/11.

Details of the Community Checking Account are listed in the ads and in this Community Bank of Downers Grove page. Some noteworthy features include no minimum monthly balance requirement, free first order of checks and surcharge-free ATMs at the SUM and MoneyPass ATM network.

Branches are in Downers Grove and Clarendon Hills which are in the suburbs of Chicago. Hinsdale Bank has a few other branches, but they may not be offering this same promotion.

Hinsdale Bank & Trust Company has an overall health score at of 4 stars (out of 5) with a Texas Ratio of 13.15% (above average) based on December 2010 data. Please refer to our financial overview of Hinsdale Bank & Trust Company for more details. The bank has been a FDIC member since 1993 (FDIC Certificate # 33849).

This promotion does not specifically say "local only", but reading between the lines it sounds like one.  Anyone know for sure?
