Nice find OP! This offer expires August 15th, 2013.

Now we won't have to deal with a bunch of new members posting their email and asking for this code... at least until August 15th.

Guys, this is in no way the best offer right now. If you search on eBay you can find $500 coupons for opening a new checking. Chase just started sending them out

not sure how many of these they sent out, but it looks like they're selling really quick on eBay. a friend of mine actually got one in the mail and she already had a chase checking so she gave it to me

That one requires a $15,000 deposit though. If you got it, great its a better offer.

If you don't, then this one obviously is a great offer even still.

it doesn't really, all you need is to put in $100 and do the direct deposit requirement. first 2 months the fees are waived, and after that it's $25/month. Basically you'd pay $100 before you could cancel the account but you'd still come out wayyyy ahead

i got the same error, have you been able to get this resolved? I'm now stuck with a checking account I didn't need, and I don't think I'll get the bonus.

I got this offer, but I don't see the 1st 2 months the fees are waived. And you can't close the account within 6 months. If you do, they will take away the bonus.

With the $500 bonus looks like you have to have a branch in your state and within 30 miles. With the $200 bonus I don't see this fine print.

Tempted to ask my wife to apply, but not seeing a way for us to satisfy the DD requirement, as she does not work, nor draw a govt. check. Any creative ideas?

(Paypal is the devil, so scratch that off your list)

rated:
Just to clarify: does the DD need to be just ONE time? And afterwards, I can have the direct deposit go back to my regular account?

I was thinking of giving my son who is an incoming senior in College a salary (he does work for me) through my LLC which has a checking account in Chase. Will this work? I guess I have to ask Chase how I can do the electronic payment of my son's salary so he can avail of this offer. Any thoughts about this?

natevines said:   Just to clarify: does the DD need to be just ONE time? And afterwards, I can have the direct deposit go back to my regular account?

Usually the first direct deposit is to qualify for the $200. But in order to waive the monthly fee, you need a $500 direct deposit each month OR $1,500 in average month deposit. Otherwise, you get hit with the monthly fee.

fyi, you will receive a 1099 and have to pay taxes on the $200

I opened it in the branch, they told me fees are waived for first 2 months. And i think that's always the case with these type of accounts

But the kicker is that if you don't have a branch within 30 miles you're going to open online, and when you try to (and enter your address) they will tell you that the promotion is not available in your area. Happens to me every time with these juicy chase checking bonuses...

Thanks OP, in for two. Not sure if this was the case in the past but funding Chase checking with a Chase CC would not work for me.

The $500 coupon needs a private client banker (or something like that) approval and they might harass you to put in more money in the account

Well it's an extra ($470 - $200)*(1-marginal t), so it's not just an extra $100...

So you would pay taxes on just $470 if you buy a coupon that cost $30 from eBay? Not the full $500?

And what about factoring in the $100 in fees you would end up paying (or having to tie up $15k for ~4 months) ?

rated:
Is the $15K relationship balances or must be parked in the checking account (presumably w/ negligible yield)?

The tie-up consideration is negligible if you have to tie up some balances in liquidity SOMEWHERE.

Also (LPREDDY) the extra $100 argument is apples to oranges because you're comparing $300 after-tax to $200 pre-tax. If you're going to play the account bonus game at all, it seems to me may as well go for getting the extra call it $270 pre-tax, right? (Again assuming you've got the cash to park.)

How would a buyer know if the bonus coupon really works, that they qualify, and get the $ bonus from Chase?

eBay buyer protection, which will be mentioned by eBay on the item listing if it applies, should at least cover you that the coupon was genuine. what part of the terms are not clear?

Print the page, talk to local banker(s), close account if no bonus, try another coupon after 90 days?

rated:
kwest said:   Getting an error after going thru the whole application saying the coupon code can't be verified. Hmm.

In the past I've received this error if 90 days had not passed since I closed a previous Chase checking account. On day 91 it worked.

Weird, but true.

Important: if you get this error, don't complete the app, you will end up with an account and no bonus.

So not only did chase not accept my initial ACH deposit and when I sent a secure message for my bonus said I need payroll, etc but when I filled out my payroll DD and had my paycheck direct deposited, they said that although it is clearly payroll my work payroll processor codes it as a ACH transfer and not a direct deposit so they won't be giving me the bonus. Oh well I guess eventually time had to come when it stopped for me. Although a little surprised the real direct deposit didn't trigger it. 
  There are still working methods for receiving the bonus, they haven't closed all the loopholes. Serve/Bluebird both still trigger the bonus.
