A few days ago, I received a pretty awesome deal in the mail. It was what looked like a gift card for $100, from Chase Bank. I am a Wachovia (now owned by Wells Fargo) banker. However, Chase has this deal where if you open a checking account with a coupon code, put $100 in it initally, and keep it for 6 months, they will give you $100. Sounds pretty good to me! Its basically free money for opening up a checking account. There are no annual fees, nothing. I normally wouldn’t open a new checking account, but if you’re going to pay me $100 to do it, why not?
I just did this today, and they are supposed to deposit the $100 10 days after I make the minimum deposit of $100. When the time comes, I will update again about it. See if it’s actually LEGIT.
If you get this “gift card” in the mail, don’t make the mistake of throwing it away! Open up that checking account, and take advantage of the offer! I will probably always be loyal to Wachovia, but why would I refuse a free $100?
