Tennessee Deal: $100 Checking Bonus

You can make a quick 100 bucks simply by opening an Express Checking account at First Tennessee Bank and making one direct deposit.

Just open your checking account by Nov. 30, with at least a $300 initial deposit, and have one direct deposit post to your account within 60 days of opening. Then the Memphis-based bank will add a $100 bonus to your account within six weeks.

The offer is only available for those who don’t already have a checking account with First Tennessee and haven’t had one for at least a year. To retain the $100 bonus, you’ll need to keep your Express Checking account open for at least six months.

While the account carries a $5 monthly fee, just having at least one direct deposit per month will get the fee waived.

You can open an Express Checking account online or stop by a bank branch. If you open the account online, you need to use the code FALL12 to take advantage of the bonus offer ( If you choose to open the account in person, you’ll need to print out a certificate from the bank’s website and take it with you to a branch.

First Tennessee is a regional bank and has more than 170 locations throughout the state. The bank is a subsidiary of First Horizon National Corp., which also is based in Memphis.

You must be a Tennessee resident to open a checking account with this bank.
