Chase Bank $125 Certificate Checking Account Offer in “Value Pack” Mailing

I was recently going through my mail including that “value pack” mailing which I consider junk mail. I usually just toss that piece of junk mail in the garbage but I decided to go through it to see if there were any coupons on restaurants in my area. Well I didn’t find any coupons but one offer jumped out at me from Chase Bank, a $125 Certificate to open a Chase Total Checking Account.

I just happened to be looking to switch banks and getting a $125 to do so is icing on the cake! This offer ends on February 9, 2013, so you have plenty time to take advantage of the offer. Of course with any cash offers like this there are requirements that have to be meet.

The requirements are not a big deal if you planned to open a checking account anyway and don’t mind dealing with the largest bank in the country. This offer also has a coupon code associated with it and you also have to setup direct deposit to get the $125.

The coupon code on my $125 certificate is: Coupon Code: FX223276EXP7A9LW. You can try using this code or just look in the coupon mailing you receive in the mail. I don’t know if Chase Bank is offering this deal in the entire country or just in certain areas. The bank is so big I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a national offer.

After you open the checking account you have 60 calendar days to have your first direct deposit posted in the new checking account. Once the first direct deposit is made the $125 will be deposited into the account within 10 business days. Not a bad deal if you’re looking for a new checking account for a direct deposit.

This offer isn’t available for existing Chase Bank customers. This offer also isn’t available to anyone who has closed a Chase account within 90 days for closed an account with a negative account balance.

You also have to keep this account opened for at least 6 months otherwise Chase will deduct the $125 when you close the account. The bonus is considered interested and you will receive a 1099-INT from chase. If you have your own certificate you can take it to a branch location to open the account, of course you can also do it online.

If you don’t have your own certificate try using the coupon code at chase.com/checking. You can also try using some variation of it which might work. When you’re on chase.com/checking under “Chase Total Checking” click on “open now”, then select “I’d like to start a new application”. At that point you will be promoted to enter a coupon code if you have one.

Try the one above and good luck. Again if you’re in the market to open a checking account to setup direct deposit than you might as well earn $125. Otherwise it’s probably not worth the hassle to do so. If you’re just looking for a checking account without setting up direct deposit you can search for the best checking account rates by using our rate table here: Checking Account Rates.
