    TWO (?) direct deposits and wait 90 days and they’ll give you a credit card with a $100 credit-God, what a rip-off attempt.

    it says that you have to keep the account open for 180 days other wise there is a early termination fee of $25. hmmm, two direct deposit and keep the account open for 6 months to get $100…. I am not sure if it is worth it?

    Paypal does not qualify.

    Instead of two direct deposits you can do two ACH payments.
    I made two payments to my credit cards and will be getting my
    $100 Gift Card in about 3 months.

    Key bank is a scam. They do bait and switch interest rates. Will drop the rate much more than market suddenly and hope you are not watching

    Coulee Bank ( ) offers an incredible 6.01% APY with their Rewards Checking account. The rate is easy to earn. All you have to do is make 10 check card transactions a month, use e-statements, and do 1 automatic payment a month (they call it ACH). Coulee Bank pays 6.01% on the first $25,000 and 1.01% on anything above that. The best thing about this account besides the rate is it is FREE, you can apply online, and it is from a great bank with real people that answer the phone. And as they like to say, Banking Green has its Rewards. The Rewards Checking account saves paper and preserves our natural resources. No wonder I feel good about recommending this to everyone I know. Check it out. I guarantee you will love it.

    Another Key Bank Ripoff! I have high 700’s FICO, have had their Master Card for 10 years with never a late payment, always overpay each month, and have little other debt. How do they repay me? I got a letter this week that says they’re doubling my interest rate to 16% and when I called to complain and try to get a better deal, they said the only better deal is to opt out and pay off the credit card. What jerks. Anybody else experiencing this with Key? They’re about to lose me entirely. I closed my savings account there a year ago after they scammed me with an interest rate then lowered it by 80%, saying “sorry that program just isn’t available anymore” – no notice before, no fair disclosure. DO NOT BANK WITH KEY BANK!!!!

    I’ll tell you one better; I had a Bank of America – Asiana American Express Credit Card, they sent me the offer and I applied, approved for $5,500.00 credit. Did over 6 months of purchases, never late, always paid on time or well before. Made a trip to China on Asiana Airlines after I purchased the tickets with the card, paid the account before I left; and the day I arrived in China…. the bank (without notice) closed the account and left me stranded in China.
