Now's the time to get a new checking account. That's because you can earn a $250 bonus when you open an account online and add direct deposit. Applying online is simple, secure, and fast. Plus, every account comes with free Mobile* and Online Banking so you can keep track wherever, whenever.

Express Checking
$5 monthly service charge
(rebated with at least one direct deposit per statement cycle)
No minimum balance
Free online statements are required

Offer is good from September 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016. To receive your bonus, you must open the checking account online and ensure the code ONLINE appears in the online application where "Offer/Promo code" is requested. You must have an opening deposit of at least $300, and at least one direct deposit must post to your account within 60 days of account opening. Opening deposit cannot be transferred from existing First Tennessee accounts. The $250 bonus will be credited to your account within 6 weeks of meeting all requirements and will be reported as income on Form 1099-INT. Limit one bonus per household. Cannot be combined with other checking offers. This offer is for new checking households only, or for households who have not had an open First Tennessee consumer checking account in the previous 12 months. Customer agrees to maintain account in good standing for a minimum of six months. As of 08/06/15, the Annual Percentage Yield (APY) for Premier Checking was: 0.01% for balances of $0-$4,999 and 0.02% for balances of $5,000 and greater. APY is variable and subject to change without notice. Fees may reduce earnings. Account openings are subject to bank approval and may be declined based on certain factors. Must be a U.S. citizen.

AR, GA, MS, NC, TN, & VA but possible nationwide

$300 max credit card initial funding

Communication via secure message indicated that my routing number (VA) is 084303749. That wasn't available through my employer, so I used 084000026 when setting up DD, and confirmed via secure message that that would also work. YMMV.

MUST BE A US CITIZEN
They have removed the "Must be a U.S. citizen" requirement.

*We have modified the original offer by adding state restrictions. This offer is now limited to Tennessee and North Carolina residents only.

"The offer is available to residents of AR, GA, MS, NC, TN, & VA, but I opened it from NYC and I received the bonus ($150 offer) earlier this year so most likely this is available nationwide."

What does that mean? Juts transfer money from checking to checking or need to open another account?

Anyone know if you fund the $300 online account opening deposit with a credit card, will it post as a purchase or cash advance? If anyone did so, what cards were used and did it work as a purchase?
