I'm not smart enough to figure out how to notify Mr. Tumin about a problem with the Chase bonus deals he shows on this site and am hoping that someone here can do so.
I signed up for one that requires a 90-day commitment and then saw this in the small print:
2 Account Closing: If either the checking or savings account is closed by the customer or Chase within six months after opening, we will deduct the bonus amount for that account at closing.
So to get the bonus one needs to leave their money in a checking account that doesn't even pay 1% interest (it's .01% actually!) for not 3 months, but 6. I'll leave it to smarter people than me to figure out how much money one really gets after that (granted it's not the whole $10k, but it's around $1800, as near as I can figure for the remaining 3 months)
