M&T Bank is offering a $150 bonus when you open any checking account. They had a similar offer earlier this year, that applied to more states. The current offer is for the NY and PA and the requirements are a bit different as well. Simply make one qualifying direct deposit in the amount of at least $100 within 90 days of account opening to qualify.
Apply online or visit your local M&T Bank to open an account by October 24, 2015. Decline the checks and savings account.
EZChoice Checking is the best option. You can avoid the $9.95 monthly fee just by making one transaction such as a deposit, withdrawal, or debit purchase every month. The fine print says that the $150 bonus will be deposited within 90 days, nut my bonus deposited on the same day as my $100 DD from Capital One 360.
