Wanna get a FREE $125?

If you like free money..and who doesn’t,then why not check out the FREE $125 from Chase!!!

Chase bank is currently running a promotion where they will give you $125 for free just for opening a new free checking account with them. All you have to do is click on the link and print off the coupon.

Yes you have to physically go into a brick and mortar store in order to get the money…but it is $125!!

In order to keep the account free and not get charged the monthly fee then you need to set up a direct deposit with Chase. This can be in the form of simply having a small percentage of your paycheck sent over to the chase account every month.

Every time you refresh the link you get a new code and each code can only be used once to open the account. I guess they only have a limited number of entries and want to restrict the number of people who get this fabulous bonus.

Now the thing is that they automatically want to charge you for the checks that come with the account. If you do not want to pay for the checks all you have to do is tell the person who is opening the account not to order you any checks. That will save you about $22 in fees in the future.

You need to act now because the offer ends on 12-31-07. I opened my account yesterday and you need to go get yours today.

    Good job Saving Freak. You should see your bonus coming in the next couple of weeks. Don’t forget to set up your direct deposit (whatever it may be) to avoid the monthly fee.

    Oh Juan. Are you SERIOUS? No Chase in SF? Sorry dude.

    Emily I think maybe the promotion has been taken down. I will check it again in a few days but Chase takes this down and puts it up every few weeks.

    I heard the deal is back up again so you might want to check out Chase’s website one more time.

    Credit card companies will do anything to sign you up right now. They are losing so much money during this “credit crunch.” I guess, if it makes sense, go with this Chase offer or other offers. But too much credit isn’t a great thing.

    I don’t have TOO much credit….so I am not worried about that now. :-)
