Free Flip Ultra Camcorder - TD Bank Checking Account Promotion


TD Bank is offering an Flip Ultra Camcorder when you open a checking account, make 8 debit card purchases and use online bill pay 2 times within 45 days of account opening. The expiration date is June 5, 2010. The offer is listed at TD Bank's home page, and the details are described in TD Bank's promotions page.

There's an online application, but it only allows applications from states where it has branches. This includes the following states: Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia and Washington DC.

Credit for the find goes to FW member BrianGA who mentioned it in this FW thread. As mentioned in this thread, the retail value of the camcorder will be reported to the IRS. Also, the real value of the camcorder is around $100. So these issues hurt the deal unless you were planning on buying this camcorder.

TD Bank is part of the bank holding company Toronto-Dominion Bank which is Canada's second largest lender. On April 16th, TD Bank acquired three Florida banks that were shut down by regulators (see post). TD Bank has been a FDIC member since 1961 (FDIC Certificate # 18409).

They charge for everything, fees even to call the back, they call it consultation charge, monthly fees just to have an account. The gift will be paid by the ignorant customers.

TD Bank, the other bad bank. They run hard credit pulls and almost forced me to get the overdraft protection on the debit card, saying it is better to pay an overdraft fee than to ruing my credit. Bunch of thieves, stay away from this bank.
