  • $175 When you open a new Chase Savings account and deposit a total of $15,000 or more in new money within 10 business days. Expires 4/23/15.

These offers are by no measure nationwide. I’m not going to drive 4+ hours one way to setup a bank account. Please change this post to reflect reality.

Just a warning, you will receive a 1099 for tax purposes for this as income from Chase. I took up the similar Chase account opening offer last year and was surprised to receive a 1099 for the amounts this past February.

yes they 1099 you but $300 in interest for having DD for 6 months on a checking account beats any interest rate you can find.

Any idea if this is something that can be done more than once? I signed up for and cancelled a chase account a few years ago

There is not Chase branch in my state. Will it work if I drive to a neighbor state that is an hour away? Thanks!

I did the $175 offer for savings, it is a better deal as it has no fine print requiring you to park the $15,000 for 90 days. After receiving the bonus I pulled out all but the $300 minimum to avoid fees and will let it sit there for 6 months before closing….we do this every year to get some kind of interest from banks since chase is only paying .01% on their basic savings and most banks aren’t much better….anyone interested in banking bonuses should check out this site: http://www.maximizingmoney.com/category/banking-bonus-deals/

I got the $300 checking plus $200 savings bonus code in the mail. I currently have cash in high yield savings account ~1% APY. In order to maximize my yield, I’m thinking:
Checking bonus: Deposit $1,500 (the minimum daily balance requirement to prevent fee) and hold it for 6 months.
Savings bonus: Deposit $15,000 in the CHASE savings account for 90 days (3 months). Then drain it down to $300 ish (above minimum daily balance requirement to prevent fee) and hold it for another 3 months (for a total of 6 months).
After 6 months have passed, close both CHASE account and put everything back to my high yield savings account. My rough math tells me I’ll be missing out on about $50 of high yield in returns for the $500 bonus.
What wasn’t clear is if the direct deposit needs to be set up for 6 months continuously to get the bonus or if I can stop it after a few months. Any caveats churning the bonuses?

I have these personally. Would a business account be
eligible?

Thanks,

This relates to a Chase Checking account and is something I am just becoming aware of, so asking in this comment section … hope that is OK!

For the Chase Freedom/Chase Checking Account Bonus in 2015, do you have to sign up or activate anything? I got a Chase Freedom Card in December 2014 and a Chase Checking Account in January 2015, am I automatically qualified?

Are you referring to the 10 UR points per transaction bonus, or the 10% additional points bonus? If so, I believe that program ended sometime in 2014 and the final bonus payout was Jan/Feb 2015. I got mine on my Feb ’15 statement.

If it’s still ongoing, you should be automatically enrolled. I was after opening a Chase checking account.

I just opened a chase checking account for my business about a month ago. Does this prohibit me from taking advantage of this offer for my personal account, or can I still use the promotion for the account I just opened?

Has anyone tried to open up the saving account and do the initial load of $15,000 with a CC? Does it show up as Cash Advance?
