Upgrade to Chase Private Client, Get $1,250 Bonus (Targeted)

Chase is offering a huge bonus of $1,250 when you upgrade your account to Chase Private Client. This account needs a balance of $250,000 or more, so this is not a deal for everyone. This Chase Private Client bonus is available until 9/28/2019. I received the offer by mail, and it includes a unique code that you need to show in branch.

Save time and money with better banking benefits and special services, plus a $1,250 Welcome Bonus. Hereʼs how to get started:

  1. Meet with a Private Client Banker by September 28, 2019 to upgrade your account to Chase Private Client.
  2. Within 45 calendar days, transfer a total of $250,000 or more in new money to a combination of eligible checking, savings and/or investment accounts, and maintain the balance for at least 90 days.

The account has no fees, but you need to maintain the $250,000 balance. Otherwise, you will be downgraded to another Chase account.

Guru’s Wrap-up

Not the best deal for someone that has this kind of money. You Invest accounts would have been a good option to meet the balance requirement. But are excluded in the terms of the offer. If you keep the $250K in the account for exactly three months, you get a 2.00% return. Not very exciting. There’s other high yield accounts out there that will get you a better rate without the balance requirement.
