M&T Bank is offering a $150 bonus when you open a MyChoice Checking account. In order to receive the bonus you need to use promo code QE and make a direct deposit of at least $100 within 90 days of account opening by April 3, 2015.
To open the account online, simply visit the M&T Bank website. You’ll be prompted to enter your zip code first, and then select MyChoice Checking account type, and click “Open Now” to get started. Decline the check and savings account and make sure to use the promo code QE in the promotional code box.
You can avoid the monthly fee of $6.95 by keeping an average balance of $500 or more in the account. The $150 bonus will be deposited within 90 days (UPDATE: My $150 bonus deposited on the same day as the $100 DD from Capital One 360). I’m going for this one, and probably open an account for my wife as well. Pretty light requirements.
