This is one of the biggest free money offers I have seen. It is a fairly simple one to do.
- It is only available in FL, IL, IN, KY, MI, MO, OH, PA, and WI, only one per household, and you can’t already have a national city account.
Here are the steps:
STEP ONE: Open a national city bank account online, via your local branch, or 1-800-622-6650 before December 31st.
STEP TWO: Use their switch service (via your local branch or 1-866-622-3948) to setup the direct deposit of your check (payroll, social security, or pension) into your new checking account. The check must be at least $250 and must be received within 60 days of opening your account.
STEP THREE: Accept their free national city Visa CheckCard (debit).
STEP FOUR: Make at least 10 purchases on the card within 60 days of opening the account.
- You will get your $150 Visa gift card within 60 days of fulfilling all the requirements, HERE are the official details
I signed up for the account already, I will use the switch service to transfer one check to them (then I will change it back to my regular account). I plan on using the CheckCard for my CVS purchases! That should make it very easy to reach the 10 purchase minimum within the 60 days. Now to decide if I want to invest or splurge with that $150 Visa gift card!
