For a limited time, PerkStreet Financial is offering $100 bonus for opening a free checking account with no minimum balance and no monthly maintenance fee. To get $100, you need to open the account with at least $25 deposit and must open by 12/31/2009. The account must remain open for at least 3 months. PerkStreet Financial is part of the Bancorp Bank and is FDIC-insured. Offer is open to first time customers only.
To avoid $4.95 monthly maintenance fee, you must have at least one of the following activities each month: direct deposit, bill pay, or check card usage.
I opened the account a couple of days ago but at that time, the promotion was for $50 only, so this is a much better offer. However, the good thing was that I was able to fund the account with my Schwab Bank Credit Card which offers 2% cash back. So on $500 deposit, that's an extra $10 for few minutes of opening the account - not bad!
