$100 Chase Checking Bonus Is Back

Chase has revived its $100 bonus for opening a checking account.

All you need to do is open a Chase checking account with as little as $100 in new money.

Chase offers $100 checking bonus

If you sign up for a basic “Chase Checking” account, all you have to do is establish one direct deposit, or make five debit card purchases, within 60 days.

The $100 bonus is posted to your account 10 days after the initial direct deposit or your fifth debit card purchase.

The bonus is available for all types of personal checking accounts (except Access, College and High School accounts) but the requirements may be a little different. Be sure to ask.

You can avoid a monthly service fee by continuing your direct deposit or making the required debit card purchases.

The only catch is that you have to keep your account open for six months or Chase will snatch the $100 from your account upon closing.

This offer is available nationwide through Dec. 31, 2009.

    Perhaps you should wait for the $100 and see if they mail you a certificate for $125 such as the one I received.

    I forgot to say that you must have the certificate in hand to get the $125.00

    I opened a Chase checking accout with the $100 bonus coupon. After making a direct deposit from ING into the Chase checking to be qualify for the bonus and waited for more than 30 days. I was told I wasn’t qualify for the $100 bonus because the direct deposite must be from an employer or goverment funding.

    I made $100 return on my $100 in 6 months with this account. I opened the account with penny rolls, and used the debit card exclusively for coffee. I saw it as recuperating just a little bit of my bailout dollars.
