Chase Checking Account $150 Bonus

This offer just arrived in the mail.

Open a new Chase Bank checking account before June 30 and get a $150 bonus.

We were surprised that there’s no mention of this on Chase’s web site.

The bank has heavily promoted similar deals there, including last winter’s $50 bonus for new personal checking accounts and $200 bonus for new business checking accounts.

You’ll also need a “coupon code” from the mailing to qualify for the bonus,

The on-line application has a section called “Account Options” where you’re asked if you have a coupon code and provided a box to enter the 16-digit number.

We’re generous guys at Bankaholic, so we’re happy to share our coupon code with you: 3469485147633085

We don’t know if that will work for everyone. Try it and see.

The fine print says you have 60 days from the time you open the account to deposit at least $100 in new money. Within 10 days of doing that, the $150 bonus will be added to your account.

If you try and close the account in less than six months, Chase will take the $150 back.

One final thing that came up after we wrote about the $50 checking account bonus from TCF Bank. This money is regarded as interest, and you will pay taxes on it.

    I just went online and chatted with a Chase rep, they stated it is an offer that is being sent out randomly and to Chase card holders only.

    Hey a $100 is better than getting no bonus. Maybe if someone postsa link to the offer ,there might be a chance to get $150 for opening an account with Chase though?

    I just applied “online” for a new checking account at Chase. I used the “code” of the card I received in the mail. At the end of filling out several screens of information (it’s not really that bad), I got a prompt saying that it would probably take 2 days for new account request to be processed. They will mail me new checks. And I’ll get $150.00 deposited into my checking account as soon as I make 5 (five) debit card transactions using a PIN. (note…I don’t think I’ve ever used a debit card before, always credit cards). But for a free $150, I am more than willing to do 5 debit card transactions per month. For any month that you forget to do 5 debit transactions, there will be a $6 monthly fee. I didn’t have to open a savings account…although they sure tried to get me to do that. I’m quite sure it will be approved, since I set up the “initial deposit funding” ($100.00) from a credit card … and the credit card company has already reduced my available credit by $100 within 10 minutes of applying for the Chase free account with $150 bonus.

    I opened an account as advertised with Chase.
    Now that I switched payroll direct deposit and did what they asked.
    I AM NOT getting my promised money!!!
    They said I had to walk in the door with a coupon code!
    The “Personal Banker” did not explain that fact. I opened on 7/09/2010
    and was told to wait up to 3 months!
    Can you help?
    Let me know what to do!

    Class-action law firm sought to sue Chase. I opened a new account with a $125 promotional offer. Chase took my deposit (which I have yet to receive back), then closed the account without disclosing any reason.

    I want to sue for my money they accepted and have not returned and for alleged fraud.
