POSTED ON BY

Salal Credit Union is offering a $100 bonus and two tickets for the Seattle Great Wheel for opening a checking account with direct deposit. This offer is scheduled to end on October 15, 2012. Details of the promotion are listed in this Salal promotions page. Below is a copy of the offer's small print that's at the bottom of the promotions page:

Offer good on new checking accounts opened August 15 through October 15, 2012. Limit one per household. Cannot have had a Salal checking in prior 6 months. To be eligible for the $100 deposit, the checking account must be open at least 90 days and be in good standing; at least one direct deposit must occur within the initial 90 days. Deposits will be made to eligible accounts in December 2012/January 2013. This special cash offer and ticket value are subject to IRS reporting and will be reflected on your 1099. Available on all consumer checking. For Silver Horizons, the annual percentage yield as of August 1, 2012 is 0.05% for balances of $5,000 to $24,999 and 0.08% for balances of $25,000 and over. Fees could reduce the earnings on the account. A minimum of $25 is required to open a Salal checking.

All Salal accounts are subject to approval.

Promo Code: BigWheel

One thing to note in the small print is that both the cash and the ticket value will be reflected on your 1099. According to the Seattle Great Wheel website, an adult ticket price is $13.

Salal's My Checking is a free checking account with no monthly service fees and no minimum balance requirements.

The credit union also has a refer-a-friend bonus in which both the referee and the referrer can earn $25. This is scheduled to last until 12/31/2012. Details are listed at the credit union's refer-a-friend page.
