Citizens Bank is offering up to $100 in bonuses when you open a checking account and complete some requirements. From the promo page:
To qualify you must open your first new checking, debit card or credit card account between October 1 and November 13, 2009. You must not be or have been a signer on any personal account within the prior six months. Student Checking accounts are not eligible. If you meet these conditions and have at least 1 electronic Direct Deposit of $500 or more you will be paid a $50 bonus. If you make at least 5 online bill payments using our Online Banking site, you will be paid a $25 bonus. If you make a minimum combination of 5 signature-based purchases (non PIN purchases) using your Debit Card or Credit Card you will be paid a $25 bonus. All requirements need to be met by December 31, 2009. All bonuses will be paid by 2/28/2010 and reported to the IRS. Checking account must remain open for at least 6 months or the amount of the banking bonus will be debited from the account at closing.
You can also make up to $120 in bonuses with their Green$ense program but at ten cents a debit I don’t think it is worth the hassle.
You also must live in an area where they have branches to open an account. Most of their branches are located in the Northeast. You can search to see if they have a branch near you on their website or you can go there to get more information on this bank bonus.
