Anyone Knows Where I Can Get a Tablet For Opening a Checking Account?

Anyone knows about a bank where I can get a tablet for opening a checking account?

The only one that I have seen so far is flushing bank but it appears to be for NY state only.

Some banks used to give kindle fires for opening a checking account with them, but if you read the terms and conditions you must deposit at least X dollars. I think it was 1000, can't be sure.

What state do you live in? Why don't you check Slickdeals forum archives or a sites like Bank Perks [bankperks.net] or My Bank Tracker [mybanktracker.com]?

I got a free Kindle Fire HD from First Bank [efirstbank.com] in AZ... kind of. They give you a choice of the 16GB Kindle Fire HD, Amazon or iTunes gift cards, and some other stuff I can't remember (though they really only advertise either iPod or Kindle on their site). I wanted the 32GB Kindle Fire HD so when I qualified for the free gift code, I saw they offered a $200 Amazon gift card and used it towards the purchase of my Kindle.

Why not open a credit card that will give you 500 dollars cash back. That way you can use the money to buy a tablet.

If you had a specific tablet in mind - it's probably better and you might get cash on the side to open up a checking that offers you cash back and use that money to buy the tablet.

Chase runs the promo for their Freedom card every couple months where you get like $300 back for spending $1500 over a period of 3 months. And you also get cash back rewards for it.

But here's an interesting link [nerdwallet.com] with new accounts information.

I think only BBVA is offering the kindle fire hd for opening an account with them.

Thanks for the great reply. I live in CA.

I looked around and could not find a tablet deal except for Flushing.

Please let me know if you find one.

Thanks!

Do you guys or anyone else know if BBVA is a legit bank? Has anyone successfully opened an account with it or have another account with it? Thanks.

They are one of the biggest banks in Europe and in the top 20 in US banks. Offical sponsor of Real Madrid - i'd say they are pretty legit.
