New bank account bonuses?

Postby nismoZtuner » Tue Mar 11, 2014 6:39 pm

I`m planing on opening a new savings account with a bank but haven't choose one yet. A few month back I remember reading that some banks give out bonuses for opening new accounts with them. I currently have a BOA Student account.

Does anybody know of a bank that is offering good bonuses?


Thanks!

I would consider what banks you are interested in, and Google the topic to see if you can find some links for promotions or information on current promotions.

If you want bonuses, check out internet-only banks. Brick-and-mortar locals are less likely to offer these sign-on bonuses. So long as they're FDIC insured, internet-only banks are just as good as the bank in the storefront down the street.

BOA $4K
UMP $11.5K
Target Visa $1.5K

Chase sends me a $150 sign up bonus with every bill (Marriott and CSP). I have to have the account open for six months and $3000 I think avoid monthly fees. I've never taken advantage of them and don't really plan to. Not sure if these are transferable or what but I'm sure you could find one or I can send you one.

I have a Marriott card as well but i haven't received anything from chase telling me to open an account with them- i have only received Marriott rewards stuff with their hotels
