Need a Checking Account Bonus?


Currently for a limited time Comerica Bank is having a promotional offer on their checking account called the “Sensible Stimulus Package.” This promotional offer entails a bonus of up to $230 dollars. This is a pretty great deal since not too many banks these days are offering bonuses over $100 dollars. Of course there are always the qualification requirements to be able to qualify for the $230, but if you’re diligent – you can get FREE money.

Here is what you must do to qualify:

  • You must open a personal checking account with Comerica Bank and open a new direct deposit with deposits of $150 or above per statement cycle – earning you up to $50 dollars. (Account has to be open for at least 6 months)
  • You must open a new check card and make at least 8 purchases per statement cycle – earning you to up to $60 dollars. (Has to be open for up to 12 months)
  • You must sign up online and enroll in web bill pay and pay at least 8 bills per statement cycle – earning you up to $60 dollars. (Checking account must be open for 12 months)
  • In addition you can also open either a Savings Account or a Money Market Account with a minimum opening balance of $5K – this will either earn you up to $30 if your initial balance is up to $5 OR earn you up to $60 if your balance is over $10,000. (Has to be open for 12 months for either accounts)

This may seem a lot to do to earn up to $230 dollars, however, there is always that option of just opening the account and earning $50 dollars. To participate you can sign up online at comerica.com/Sensible. You only have until September 4, 2009 to register for the Sensible Stimulus offers and the accounts has to be established by August 31, 2009.
