I received this in the mail. I consider it "Your Miles May Vary" (YMMV) since the fine print says "This offer is available to Citi cardmembers who receive this communication."
To qualify for $125 first open a new regular checking account in the Citibank Account package. Then within 60 days of opening, begin performing at least one of the following everyday banking activities each month for two consecutive months:
* One or more direct deposits
* Two or more electronic bill payments
* Five or more purchases with your Citibank debit card

Note, the Citibank Account requires a $6K combined balance to avoid a $20/month fee.
There's also a $150 bonus for the Citigold account package, but this requires at least a $50K combined deposit balance to avoid a $30/month fee.
