Wow. This is pretty awesome.
I’m guessing you need a bank account, right? And I’m also assuming that you have a job where you can be paid via direct deposit, right? If so, you might as well get some cash by opening up a new bank account.
Chase Bank, which has locations basically… everywhere, is offering to PAY you $200 if you open a checking account and set up direct deposit. That’s it. BAM – $200 is yours. Open a new Chase Total Checking® account to get started.
Interested in another $150? Well this one might be even easier, but you have to have some cash upfront to do it. If you already have an emergency fund of 3-6 month’s worth of expenses in a savings account, this should be no problem. Open a new Chase SavingsSM account, deposit a total of $10,000 or more in new money within 10 days, and maintain a $10,000 balance for 90 days. They will pay you $100. That’s a much better return than having it earn a measly 0.01% (which is what it is probably doing now).
