$100 Checking Account Bonus At First Niagara Bank

Monday, October 22, 2012 - 5:27 PMFirst Niagara Bank (NY) - Details
This looks like it will be an easy $100 bonus for opening a checking account at First Niagara. The promotion is listed at this First Niagara promotions page. It's scheduled to end on 10/27/2012.

The details:
To qualify for the $100 cash bonus you must open a new First Niagara eChecking, Choice, Pinnacle or PinnaclePlus Checking account between August 9, 2012 and October 27, 2012 and maintain that account throughout the bonus payment period. An initial $50 cash bonus will be deposited into your new checking account within 10 business days from the time your account is opened. After the new checking account is opened, subsequent $10 cash bonuses will be credited to your new account by the 15th of each month for the next consecutive five (5) months. The bonus is considered interest income and will be reported on IRS 1099-INT.

Note, the eChecking is the only one that doesn't have a monthly service fee. For the others, you'll have to maintain a certain minimum balance to avoid the service fees.

It appears you must live in their market area to qualify. Branches are located in CT, MA, NY and PA.
