PNC Bank has a new offer for a $200 or $300 bonus when you open a PNC Virtual Wallet account. The offer has been extended until 3/31/2019. It should be available nationwide.
With this PNC Bank $300 Bonus Offer, you can earn up to $300 when you open a new PNC Virtual Wallet, establish a direct deposit, and make at least 10 purchases with your PNC Bank Visa Debit Card.
- Virtual Wallet with Performance Spend – $200 bonus with a direct deposit of $2,000 and 10 debit purchases within 60 days
- Virtual Wallet with Performance Select – $300 bonus with a direct deposit of $5,000 and 10 debit purchases within 60 days
A new personal checking account must be opened online via the above promotional link or at a branch using the coupon code that you receive via email upon request.
Your checking account must remain open in order for you to receive the initial bonus reward, which will be credited to the eligible account within 60 to 90 days after all conditions have been met.
A qualifying direct deposit is defined as a recurring direct deposit of a paycheck, pension, Social Security, or other regular monthly income electronically deposited by an employer or an outside agency into a Performance or Performance Select Checking Account, or the Spend Account of a Virtual Wallet with Performance Spend.
The total amount of all qualifying direct deposits credited to your checking account must be at least $500, $2,000, or $5,000, depending on which bonus amount you want to qualify to receive.
New account will not be eligible for offer if any signer has signing authority on an existing PNC Bank consumer checking account or has closed an account within the past 90 days, or has been paid a promotional premium in the past 12 months.
There’s no state limitation mentioned on this offer so everyone should be eligible. Usually we see it limited to AL, DC, DE, FL, GA, IL, IN, KY, MD, MI, MO, NC, NJ, NY, OH, PA, SC, VA and WI.
Virtual Wallet with Performance Spend has a $15 monthly fee that is waived with:
- $2,000 or more average monthly balance in Spend + Reserve
- OR, $2,000 or more in total qualifying monthly direct deposits to the Spend
- OR, $15,000 combined average monthly balance
Virtual Wallet with Performance Select has a $25 monthly fee that is waived with:
- $5,000 or more average monthly balance in Spend + Reserve + up to 6 linked checking accounts
- OR, $5,000 or more in total qualifying monthly direct deposits to the Spend
- OR, $25,000 combined average monthly balance
There’s a $25 fee if account is closed within 180 days.
We see this offer most of the time, but this one is different since it is not limited to a handful of states. The $200 and $300 are both good bonuses if you have the required $2,000 or $5,000 respectively. You need those amounts to get the bonus and also to keep the accounts fee-free.
