It' s my first post. if it's reposted, please delete it.

I found the thread from another website.

woot
I got this offer today in the mail. Open a regular checking and get $100 after 120 days if account is in good standing. Link the checking account to a citi credit card and pay the bill by transferring funds and get another $100 after 90 days.

Offer not valid to existing customers.
Call 1-866-810-9040, offer code MVR3

This seems like a pretty easy way to get $200. I thought I should share.


UPDATE: This offer is extended till April 24th, 2006..... Thanks for suviroks.
You can then open an e-saving account to get 4.5% APR when you connect it with your EZ Checking.


The way to avoid checking account fees
Quote :
Open a Citibank EZ Checking account with $1,500 and pay two bills a month online for 15 months. Offer has no expiration deadline. Get the first $100 when you pay two bills a months for three months. Qualify for another $100 if you continue paying two bills a month for an additional 12 months

Now to find a Citi Bank card that pays you like $150 to get their creditcard.

Incidentally the Bank will declare the 'gifts' on your behalf to the IRS.

The code may also be specificto the person that was given it but it cant hurt to try.

Funny, isn't it? Bank bonuses are reported to the IRS, but credit card bonuses don't have to be.

seems like this is good if the process of opening the checking account is easy, no monthly/annual fees, and low minimum. Anybody know?

About regular checking account:
If you don't meet the $6,000 combined average balance, then these fees apply: $.50 per check in all states; $1.50 for each withdrawal from a non-Citibank ATM in all states; a monthly service fee of $9.50 (Regular Checking) and $12 (Interest Checking) in all states except CA, NV, FL and IL, DC, VA and MD, where it's $12.50 (Regular Checking) and $15 (Interest Checking). Fees charged by other institutions for transactions on non-Citibank ATMs are beyond Citibank's control and are in addition to the fees described herein.

No biggie. Just sit around and pay the $30 bucks in fees and collect the remaining $70. Right?

Not quite, deal says account has to be in good standing for 120 days, so 4 months at (low end) $9.50 per month if you don't meet the minimum $6000 balance means $100 - $37 = $63. This also assumes you don't incur any of the other fees possible and that you don't live in one of the states with higher monthly fees.
Not bad but not great. Worth it if you've got nothing better going and you're sure you can keep those fees down.

They've got a 6-month CD offering 4.25% apr, which isn't bad. So here's what you do: Drop $6k in a 6-month CD, put $1 in the checking account, and sit back. At the end you should have $127.50 from the CD, plus $200 from the promotion. That means you just made nearly %11 on money that's FDIC insured: hard to beat.

that seems like a good idea, although technically that would be yielding about 5.4% total, which equates to about 11% apr but you're only in it for 6months.
