I need to open a bank account for my 15 year old and I was trying to see if there is any bank that would give me an opening bonus for opening an account for a minor. My name would be on that account too. I don't care whether the bank is B&M or online. I checked with Chase and they said that they will not honor a coupon for a 15 year old. Any ideas?

I opened the Capital One Money accounts for my kids using the $25 referral bonus a few years ago.  The Alliant Teen Checking account also looks good, but I'm not aware of any bonus.

Would it work if you make it joint?

rated:
Chase said even a joint account wouldn't work because I already have an account with them

Doctor of Credit says Best Bank Account Bonuses

I am NOT sure how this would work for a minor. You may want to call the bank you are considering before doing the application. Some of the applications ask if you are over 13, but I do not recall which ones.

Does your 15 year old have a state issued ID or passport? If so, you might be able to do TD Bank's bonus from the Doctor of Credit blog that JW10 linked to. I would try doing that one or an M&T one with his info and ID and see if it allows it based on his age. If not, I doubt you could get a bonus in branch with a different bank, but it still might be worth a shot.

Yes. She does have a passport. I will try that. Thank you both!
