When I called about the CDs, I heard them mentioning this checking account bonus. I was told that you can get a $50 cash bonus when you open their Perfectly Free Checking Account. It also requires either 5 debit card purchases or 2 online bill payments. I was told there is no scheduled expiration date.
I wasn't able to find this exact promotion listed online. However, when I was trying out the CD application, I came across the Perfectly Free Checking Account with Bonus Via Web Offer Disclosure. It's available at this link
. This shows a May expiration date, but it appears similar to what I was told on the phone.
You can get more info on this promotion by calling Dime Savings at 800-321-3463.
