Bank of America's Keep The Change $250 Bonus - No expiration date - up to 5 KTC's participation - 5 x $250 = $1250

BOA $250 Bonus with Keep the Change Program.

BoA's KTC: said: 1Keep the Change Matching Promotion We match 100% of the amount of your Keep the Change transfers during the first three months after you enroll, and we will match 5% thereafter. The maximum total match is $250 per year. Limited to five checking accounts. Matching funds are paid annually after the anniversary of enrollment on accounts that remain open and enrolled. Savings accounts eligible to receive matching funds include, but are not limited to, Regular Savings, which requires a minimum opening balance of $25 and pays a variable Annual Percentage Yield that was 0.10% as of 01/15/10. Money Market savings accounts are also eligible. Fees could reduce earnings. The promotional matching funds will be reported to the IRS on Form 1099.

Stolen from HMB's KTC Tips:

You will have a 3-month window to get the $250 match. Here are a the quickest ways to maximize this offer. 1) Go late at night and pump gas at $1.01 each time. Do this every time you need to fill up your gas tank, so give and take about 253x at $1.01 each time. 2) You could also pay your phone bill, water bill, or electricity bill at $1.01 each time online. Check with your utility company to see the policy on this.

More Tips on this Promotion:

1. You want to take a screen shot of each offer just in case you might have to fight them. BOA are notoriously known for not handing out bonus on time.
2. You can always take money out of the savings and put it back into your checking account. Watch your balance or deposit more so you won’t over withdraw
3. Hard pull will only be done once for your first account, and soft pull everything afterward.

BOA $0 Equity Trade for customers with $25,000 or more in all asset across BoA deposit accounts, including checking, savings, and CDs.

BOA page: said: Offer available with an individual or joint Banc of America Investment Services, Inc. (BAI) Self-Directed Brokerage account. If you have a combined total of $25,000 or more in your deposit accounts at Bank of America N.A., BAI waives its commission fee for as many as 30 online equity trades each month. When you make an online equity trade, BAI determines whether you meet the balance requirement to qualify that trade for the commission fee waiver. BAI adds the average collected balances in your checking and savings accounts as of the prior month to the balances in your CD and FDIC-insured IRA accounts as of the prior business day. If this calculation reflects a combined total of less than $25,000, BAI then makes a second calculation to see if the trade qualifies by adding the balances in your checking, savings, CD and FDIC-insured IRA accounts as of the prior business day. Offer applies only to online equity trades, including stock and exchange traded fund (ETF) trades. Standard commission fees apply when the balance requirement is not met, or when you exceed 30 qualifying trades.

Comcrap $1.01 at a time.
ATT $.01. Minimum payment is $5 so I used another source to pay the $4.99 (actually $4.97 since I would schedule three $.01 through Bofa). It's possible to provide a bogus ccv number on the $4.99 but this isn't recommended.
Garbage bill $1.01 a time.

There is no minimum amount to deposit or requirement, like DD or so many check card uses to trigger this bonus? That seems very odd for BOA...

rated:
I can't find it right now, but I know I have seen at least one case of a KTC that was being blatantly abused having their account closed and did not get the bonus. Though people posting here would suggest that that does not happen often and I guess it is possible that that person's account was closed for other reasons, but it is something to keep in mind.

don't forget if you are signing up yourself and the wife you can get an extra 25 each by "referring her"

Some notes for the KTC'ers (note, please double check math).
- You have 3 months to obtain your 100% match of up to $250 max.
- Assuming you do the $1.01 bill pay for one account, once daily you won't make the $250 in 3 months.
- BoA will not allow you to do multiple payments to the same account, for the same amount for one day.

Set up payments to one account (e.g. comcast) in the following fashion for each day of the week:
Payment---KTC
1.01---------0.99
1.02---------0.98
1.03---------0.97
1.04---------0.96
1.05---------0.95
$5.15------$4.85/day

Assuming there are at least 10 weeks in the 3 month period, with 5 business days per week:
5 days/week * 10 weeks * $4.85 /day = $242.50

Therefore set the 'Until remaining xx payments have been delivered' to 10 times for each amount. Also note that you will be removing around $10 / day from your checking account.

edit: correct incorrect maths

will billpay work? i thought the keep the change program only works if you're using the debit card?

i like the sign up bonus but i am too scared of stupid BoA hidden fees .

rated:
To earn bonus from the Keep the Change Program, do you have to use the Check Card as a Visa Card or a debit card?

rated:
It doesn't matter. I've found doing the $1.01 thing at gas stations, using a PIN, works well.

rated:
When you apply, some front terms with show up next to the promotion code:

Get $100 when you open a new checking account online with a $500 minimum opening deposit, make one check card transaction and meet other requirements. Use offer code AOU261209 in the application.

So keep in mind of these if you want the $100 bonus.

OP, this is a wonderful deal !
I hate BoA and I think this is the best way to screw them.
Lets all open an account with BoA to get the bonus offer and close our accounts after that.

rated:
Tried this. BOA put a hold on the card after 217 transactions (in about 14 hours). Will call to get my card unlocked and complete the rest of the transactions.

UPDATE: BOA closed my account since I had previously had an account with them and closed it before opening this one. I'm not sure if the above mentioned transactions had anything to do with it. They are sending a check for the balance of the account. It will be interesting to see if the bonus is included!
