$150 for opening a checking account at Citizens bank (VERY EASY REQ.)
Go here, pump in your info. You'll get emailed a coupon code. I was told by a manager that you actually don't need the code, you just need to open your account with the same info as what you used to get emailed the code.
The requirements are: Make one deposit ON TOP of your initial opening deposit. So two deposits. Super easy.
Requirement for making the account free till you get your payout are also easy, one deposit of any amount (including .01, one cent) waives monthly maintenance fee. Deposit comes 60 days after requirements are met
You must open your first new personal checking account between 3/1/14 and 3/31/14. Primary signer on the new checking account may not be or have been a primary or secondary signer on any personal checking account within the previous six months. Offer may be withdrawn without notice and cannot be combined with any other checking offer. Offer only available to the person who registers online and to whose name appears on the coupon code email, and the new account must be open and in good standing to qualify for this offer.
To earn the $150 bonus, in addition to making an opening deposit, make any additional deposit to your new checking account by 5/30/14 OR make a minimum of 5 debit card payments or purchases that post and clear your new checking account by 5/30/14. Debit card payments and purchases include signature and PIN based debit transactions through a third party web site and in person directly at a merchant. Online Bill Payments and ATM transactions do not qualify.
Bonus will be deposited into your qualifying checking account by 7/31/14 and will be labeled as "Balance Builder Bonus." One bonus per customer. Bonus will be reported to the IRS.
many SDers now confirm it is a soft pull on your credit. No worries people.
BEWARE: Only one person (note below this) confirmed it's a soft pull but the pull did not list citizens bank while many people on FW are concerned it might be hard pull due to previous experiences.
It showed up as a soft pull on my Equifax credit report under the listing ""CASHEDGE EIDCOMPARE" which I believe is a 3rd party company in charge of handling money transfers and ID verifications. Just like anyone who opened a new account from PNC Bank recently will notice a 3rd party company named "Andera" in their soft inquiries.
