TCF Bank Checking Account $50 Bonus

Open a new checking account and TCF Bank will reward you with a $50 bonus.

The unusual thing about this deal is that that’s all there is to it.

You don’t need to sign-up for direct deposit. Or make a minimum number of debit card purchases.

You can sign-up for any of TCF’s six checking accounts.

The only serious restriction is you must live in one of the seven states where TCF has banks — Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan, Colorado, Wisconsin, Indiana and Arizona.

Open the account at a TCF branch and the bonus will be credited to your account the day or day after you make the minimum initial deposit of $25 ($100 in Arizona).

Fill out the forms online and you might have to wait as long as four weeks to receive the bonus.

If you’re already a TCF customer you can earn a $25 bonus by persuading a friend to open a new checking account.

There’s no limit on how many friends you can refer — and collect on.

    TCF suxs. YOU have to buy checks which costs nearly $20. And they report this $50 as income to the IRS. In the end you pocket about $10.
    NOT worth it.

    you get free checks, any design, with Student/55+ checking account and you do not need to prove TCF bank your student status. With Chase bank, you have to prove them student status and update the status to avoid fees. Chase never provides checks free for students and checks are more expensive compare to TCF bank. Also, TCF accounts can be closed next day without any problems or credit issues. Chase charges account closing fees for less than six months.

    Professor and high yields are correct. I walked out after they told me I would have to purchase a box of checks. I haven’t written a paper check in a decade. Why would I want to destroy more trees, since the checks would end up in the garbage after being shredded. With online bill pay, this is preposterous.
