Open a Free Checking Account at Continental Bank and Get a Free Amazon Kindle Fire YMMV
I'm not sure if this is just a local deal, I am not familiar with Continental Bank. I live in south east Pennsylvania. There are a few requirements, so please read the information in the link carefully. This is a partial cut and paste of an email I received. The bulk of the information is in the link to the bank's website. I have not tried this deal, so I have no input other than to just pass it along to my fellow Slickdealers. This email is from a real estate agent that I worked with two years ago, so I believe it is legit.
I have some great news to announce! Here is a special offer from my bank..
Open a new checking account with Continental Bank and you will get a FREE Amazon Kindle Fire! You can see all the details and listen to our Radio Ad below:
*Free Kindle Fire® offer valid when opening a new checking account by May 31, 2012 establishing a direct deposit of $500 per month within 60 days of account opening AND enrolling in online banking with bill pay and making three bill payments within 60 days of account opening. Free Kindle Reader® offer valid when opening a new checking account by May 31, 2012 establishing a direct deposit of $500 per month within 60 days of account opening OR enrolling in online banking with bill pay and making three bill payments within 60 days of account opening. Payments to yourself do not qualify for bill pay requirement. Customer will receive gift 6 to 8 weeks after meeting all of the requirements. Limit one gift per customer. We reserve the right to substitute an item of equal value. Offer may be withdrawn without notice. A 1099 may be issued. Member FDIC.
It's a little confusing. One sentence in the fine print says you need direct deposit "AND" 3 bill payments with 60 days, and further down it says "OR" for the requirements.
I noticed that the signup form had a field for a promotional code. While it doesn't specify on the promotional page, it seems like you need to put FIRE BACK in the promo code field. I did, at least, to be on the safe side.
Looks like the deal is only available to the Greater Philadelphia Area. I tried signing up, and later got this email from the manager:
"Dear Mr. ------,
I would like to thank you for your interest in banking with Continental Bank. Unfortunately, you currently reside outside of our service area (the Greater Philadelphia Area). If you are planning on moving into this area or think you have received this email in error please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
