Citibank $500 Citi Gold Checking Bonus

If you open a Citibank Citi Gold checking account and satisfy the terms of their promotion you can receive a $500 bonus. This bonus is available nationwide. If it isn’t automatically applied add code 439G8TGJJJ.

The cash bonus will be credited to your new checking account within 90 calendar days from the date when you completed all offer requirements. To qualify to earn a $500 cash bonus, first open a new consumer checking account in the Citigold Account Package by 4/17/2016. Then, within 30 days after account opening, deposit $50,000 or more in new-to-Citibank funds into your new Citigold checking or new or existing Citibank Savings Plus Account. A minimum balance of $50,000 is required to be maintained in the new Citigold checking, or new or existing Savings Plus Account for 30 days from the date that the $50,000 deposit is made.

I will definitely be passing on this bonus since I don’t have $50,000 sitting around to put into a checking account. Also, this account has a $30 monthly fee if certain requirements are not met. If I did have $50,000 sitting around putting it in a checking account for a $500 bonus wouldn’t be the best use of the money. You are much better off going after $100 or $200 bonuses that only require deposits of $1k or so.
