SunTrust Banks, based in Atlanta, Ga., makes it incredibly easy to earn $150.

SunTrust Banks, based in Atlanta, Ga., makes it incredibly easy to earn $150.

All you have to do is open a checking account and use it to pay your bills online.

You probably do that anyway.

This offer is for new customers that did not have a relationship with SunTrust prior to Jan. 31, 2010. It ends April 30, 2010.

If you opened a checking account after Jan. 31, you can still register your account and be eligible for the bonus.

Here’s the deal:

You open a registered personal checking account and pay three bills online within the first two months after opening and SunTrust will deposit $50 into your account (it could take up to 10 weeks for that to happen).

Continue making three online payments each month for three consecutive months and an additional $100 will be direct deposited into your account with the same 10-week caveat.

That’s it! $150 for paying your bills.

To get started go to the SunTrust Web site and send in your email address. They will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to complete the application and start earning your bonus.

SunTrust has 1,690 retail branches in Washington, D.C. and 11 states in the Southeastern part of the country. This offer, however, is available to residents of all 50 states.

    Had to nag and nag to get both promos from Sun Trust–did finally prevail, but they took their sweet time, and I would not have gotten either if I had not emailed them to complain about the lengthy delay.
