We should have a thread for bank/brokerage promos...a sort of garden club for people who still like to take money from banks.
No one has to say at which level (dollar threshold) they are participating.
I'm currently in:
Discover savings. Fixed $100 promo. I don't recall all the details. 0.95% APR, which isn't bad.
e*trade. $200 for $25k up to $2,500 for $1M. 6 months commitment. Old accounts welcome.
TD Ameritrade. $150 for $50k up to $2,000 for $1M. 12 month commitment. Old accounts welcome.
Fidelity. AA/Delta/United miles. 15k for $25k up to 50k for $100k. 9 month commitment. Old accounts welcome.
Schwab Platinum Amex. AF reduction. No time commitment, but the money need to be in the account on some date around the card's anniversary.
Citi checking. $400 for $15k. 1 month commitment. New accounts.
Keep in mind that most of these places pay very little interest on cash/money market accounts, so the promos may be better-suited to stocks and bonds. Also, transfers can take a while, so these aren't for securities you might want to trade a lot.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt, Arrival
May close or PC: Prestige, BrooksBros
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech
