Chase Bank referral code $350
« on: November 28, 2018, 01:24:15 AM »
I've been banking with Chase ever since they bought Washington Mutual. Apparently, there is a referral program for $200 to open a new checking account and $150 to open a savings account, and these can be combined for $350. If you use my referral link, I get $50. We all win!

Thanks and enjoy!

By the way, I don't think Chase's savings account rates are worthwhile, even with the bonus. But I do recommend Chase for checking; I'm a longtime happy customer.

Hi, I was doing a search because I get these in the mail all the time but I've never done it because I want to avoid fees and keep my finances simple. Has anyone signed up because of this bonus or a similar offer? Is there a catch we should be aware of (like you need to wait 6 months to get the bonus, and you need a minimum of $10k in the account or something)?
FYI I'm thinking about changing my mind and signing up now because they offer a discount on their HELOC rates if you're an existing customer and it looks like they mean checking/savings, not mortgage, to qualify as an existing customer.
Thanks!

I signed up for the checking bonus (think it was $300 at the time). Check the rules but, as I recall, it was 2 direct deposits a month to avoid a fee. An ACH counts (counted) as a direct deposit, so I just pushed $250 2x a month until it hit $1500, which is also a fee-free line.

tl;dr It is as easy as it seems. Just read the rules and be strict about following them.

The savings account has a much higher minimum.

Thank you! Yes as a self employed person my ACH payments from clients are not frequent enough to meet their requirements. Bummer!

You can go here https://www.doctorofcredit.com/ and pretty much read about the details and if any card or bank account savings or checking is worth it.

Good Luck!

What soccerluvof4 wrote. Chase isn't picky about its direct deposits. I didn't have direct deposits either so I just did a push from my credit union. It worked.
