PNC Bank up to $300 Checking Bonus

by Andy Hough on March 1, 2015 · 0 comments

PNC Bank has a new promo that allows you to get up to a $300 checking bonus when you open a new checking account with them. This offer is only available in certain states and luckily my state is one of them. The drawback is that all of the bonuses require a direct deposit. This deal looks interesting, but I haven’t finished qualifying for the Bank of the West checking bonus yet. Unless, I can figure out a way to satisfy the direct deposit requirement other than depositing my paycheck I will not be able to take advantage of this offer. I’ve included some of the small print for the $200 offer below. Visit the bank promo page for more information on this bank bonus.

New personal checking account must be opened online via the “Open an Account Online” link on the promo page or at a branch using the appropriate coupon between 2/1/2015 to 3/31/2015. To qualify for the $200 reward, a qualifying Direct Deposit must be received, and one (1) payment must be completed via PNC Online Bill Pay within 60 days of account opening. Your checking account must remain open in order for you to receive the $200 reward, which will be credited to the eligible account within 60 – 90 days after all conditions have been met and will be identified as “Cash Trans Promo Reward” on your monthly statement. A qualifying Direct Deposit is defined as a recurring Direct Deposit of a paycheck, pension, Social Security or other regular monthly income electronically deposited by an employer or an outside agency into the Spend Account of a Virtual Wallet® with Performance Spend. The total amount of all qualifying Direct Deposits credited to your checking account must be at least $2,000. Credit card cash advance transfers, transfers from one account to another or deposits made at a branch or ATM do not qualify as Qualifying Direct Deposits.

Offer only available to new PNC Bank checking account customers who open the Eligible Account using the online application. New account will not be eligible for offer if any signer has signing authority on an existing PNC Bank consumer checking account or has closed an account within the past 90 days, or has been paid a promotional premium in the past 12 months. If multiple accounts are opened with the same signers, only one account will be eligible for the premium. For this offer, signing authority will be defined by the customer name(s) and social security number(s) registered on the account. Offer only available to residents of AL, DC, DE, FL, GA, IL, IN, KY, MD, MI, MO, NC, NJ, NY, OH, PA, SC, VA, WI and District of Columbia. Offer may be extended, modified or discontinued at any time and may vary by market.
