    This is a great offer and it looks like they extended it for another month.

    Do you know the difference between this deal and the CitiBank $100 checking deal (ie: number of direct deposits required per mo., etc)?

    Thanks for the heads up Bankaholic!

    Are you aware of any higher paying bank bonus deals? PNC Bank is offering $75 bank bonus.

    Wow, you get $50 for just putting down a $100. That is what I call a good credit deal.

    Just to be sure, does this actually end on Feb 28th 2009, since there is no Feb 29th this year.

    you dont even have to keep the 100 in to get the bonus you just have to start with it .free standard checks even only bad thing is no atm refunds on non chase/wamu atms.

    my personal opinion of b of a is : screw them never will bank with them only to take advantage of there bonuses and then immediately close the account ***k them!

    I tried doing this, and called to confirm, and was denied stating there was no such promotion going on in the state of MN.

    Just know that if you chose to do this, it make take a while to actually receive the bonus money. I did the $75 promotion BofA had going on last summer and opened up the My Access checking account in the middle of July. It has taken until this week to actually receive the bonus.

    That’s interesting Tracy. I opened a My Access checking account with them October 15, 2008.
    I opened the My Access checking online because it doesn’t have monthly fees. Many of their accounts do.

    Promotion said that the $50 bonus would be paid WITHIN 90 days. Still no bonus. Have emailed and called. One email even confirmed that I entered the promo code, and I would be getting my bonus by January 22. It is January 30 – still no bonus. Now they say they are “verifying” my account and they cannot tell me when the bonus will be paid.

    I am not very impressed with them. Especially when they promote a bonus will be paid within a certain time frame, and do not follow through.

    Since all the bonus required was actually OPENING the account, I fail to understand why it would take longer than 90 days to “verify” anything.

    So – don’t count on the bonus being paid when it is due – and check the monthly fees before choosing an account.

    As bad as B of A may be, Citi is ten times worse.
    I didn’t think it was possible to match, let alone exceed, Microsoft customer service in deception, incompetence and unintelligibility, but Citi manages to take the prize year after year.
    Based on my fifteen years of unsatisfactory experience with Citi, I can confidently say to stay away if at all possible.

    When I signed up for a Wamu account a couple of months ago, I signed up hastily and didn’t put the full amount that qualifies you for the $100 bonus.

    I did nothing else with the account, except for one purchase and one deposit, and I check my account two days ago, and I received a $100 bonus! I checked to see if I actually qualify, but I don’t, so this is interesting.

    I’m not complaining!
