First Tennessee Bank has another offer. You can get a $200 bonus with a new checking account with promo code QCH200. You can open the account online or get a coupon and visit your local branch. The offer is available in a few more states compared to recent offers and available till 5/31/2017. First Tennessee has has bonuses for $250 previously but those are very rare.
To earn your bonus, you must complete the following requirements:
- Open an Express, Classic, Select, or Premier Checking account
- Use promo code QCH200
- Have an opening deposit of at least $300
- Have at least one direct deposit must post to your account within 60 days
The $200 bonus will be credited to your account within six weeks of the first direct deposit and will be reported as income on Form 1099-INT.
This offer is only available to residents of Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Kentucky. Previous offers were limited to North Carolina and Tennessee so this switch makes it similar to older offers where I was able to also apply from NYC and get the bonus. I haven’t seen any DPs of that working recently so I don’t advise it.
Limit one bonus per household. Cannot be combined with other checking offers.
This offer is for new checking households only, or for households who have not had an open First Tennessee checking account in the previous 12 months.
Express Checking is the best option. It comes with a $7 monthly fee that can be waived with a direct deposit of any amount.
