I was logging on to my Citibank account today when I saw an ad that basically says that you can earn up to $400 in gift card for opening a checking account with them. Getting the $400 offer has too many requirements for me to meet. But getting $200 is easy IMO. All you do is open their most basic checking account and sign up for direct deposit, bill pay and for electronic statements. This is to avoid $10 monthly service fee. I asked about the direct deposit requirements and the rep told me that even if I had a DD of just $1 the fee would be waived. Bill pay is also easy because it's free and i have to pay bills anyway.
