Wells Fargo, $100 Checking Bonus

Open a Wells Fargo checking account before December 22nd 2015 and you can receive a bonus of $100 when you complete either 10 debit card purchases or set up a qualifying direct deposit of $500 or more. This is similar to the offer that was around in March, but that one was targeted.

Only the Wells Fargo Everyday Checking account is eligible for the $100 bonus. You must open the account online with a minimum opening deposit of $25.

You do not qualify for the bonus if you have received any cash or cash-equivalent bonus through Wells Fargo consumer deposits in the past 12 months

This is a decent offer, but Wells Fargo has had better deals in the past, up to $250 even, but those are a bit rare. The good thing about having a Wells Fargo checking account, is that you can then apply for Wells Fargo credit cards. Even then, they’re a bit stingy with their approvals. I was declined more than a year ago for the Wells Fargo Cash Back Visa card. So I’ll give it another try now so I can get this $100 bonus plus 5% cash back for 6 months.

  1. Hey Danny do you know if this Wells Fargo promotion requires a code when applying on their website? Also, would it be possible to visit their branch and have one of their personal bankers open the account through the link provided as well?
