(See the better offer for $250) First Tennessee Bank is offering a $150 bonus with a new Express Checking account with promo code OFB150. In order to earn your $150 bonus, you must have an opening deposit of $300 and set up direct deposit. The offer has been extended till 01/31/2016.
There is no monthly service charge with direct deposit and no minimum balance required. It’s a soft pull, so no worries. You’ll get all the usual stuff for free as well such as free Banking Online, free Bill Pay Online, free Mobile Banking, and free Monthly Statements Online.
If you’re opening multiple accounts from the same PC, make sure to clear your history before applying again, or use different browsers.
The offer is available to residents of AR, GA, MS, NC, TN, & VA, but I opened it from NYC and I received the bonus earlier this year. So you might want to call in and check if the offer is available to you and let us know if it works in any other areas.
This offer is for new checking households only, or for households who have not had an open First Tennessee consumer checking account in the previous 12 months. Limit one bonus per household, but not really enforced.
