Chase $150 Checking Bonus

You can get a $150 bonus when you open a checking account at Chase Bank and meet the terms of the promotion. The coupons for this bonus are available to the public at Chase often has higher checking bonuses, but the coupons for those bonuses are not publicly available.  You can often find the higher bonus coupons available on Ebay for a few bucks. Since the higher bonus is usually a $100 or $150 more than this bonus you might decide it is worth the hassle of buying the bonus coupon. If buying a coupon off Ebay sounds like too much trouble then this $150 bonus might be for you.  Note that the checking accounts do have monthly fees. The fees can be avoided if you meet certain direct deposit or minimum balance requirements.

Terms and conditions from Chase promo page: Checking offer is not available to existing Chase checking customers, those with fiduciary accounts, or those whose accounts have been closed within 90 days or closed with a negative balance. To receive the $150 checking bonus: 1) Open a new Chase Total Checking account, which is subject to approval; 2) Deposit $25 or more at account opening; AND 3) Have your direct deposit made to this account within 60 days of account opening.
