I am definitely not in the market to open yet another bank account, but it it tempting to get the free $125. I have taken up banks on offers like this in the past, but since I finally got everything switched over and working to Schwab (including ALL my direct deposits), I won’t be doing this one – but you might want to. Chase is offering up $125 to open a new checking account and set up a direct deposit to said account. Not a lot of work for $125! Here are some details of the offer:
Open a Chase Checking account by May 14, 2010, set up direct deposit, then they will give you $125. You can apply online now at the Chase site with a $25 minimum deposit to open the account. Also, there are no monthly fees with direct deposit or 5 debit card purchases.

Of course, where I bank at Schwab has no fees, no minimums, free ATM use anywhere, etc – but no free $125.
