$100 Gift Card Checking Bonus at Citadel Credit Union in PA - Local Only


Citadel Credit Union has a checking account promotion in which you can get a $100 gift card when you open a New Citadel Checking Account. There doesn't appear to be any direct deposit or debit card usage requirement. They don't provide any details about the gift cards. The small print just says "selection may vary." Last year the gift card selection included Bed Bath and Beyond, Best Buy, and Home Depot. This offer is listed at this credit union promo page as of 6/6/2012.

Below is the small print for the checking promotion:

This limited time offer may be withdrawn or changed at any time. All standard account requirements apply. The offer may not be combined with any other offer. Gift available to new checking customers only. One per customer. Customer must not have closed a Citadel checking account within the last 12 months. Gifts will be reported on a 1099-INT.

Available to eligible residents of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties, and the city of Lancaster. $50 minimum deposit to open account. Federally insured by NCUA.
