Open Free Checking Account – Get $152 Bonus (Thru 7/3/12)


 Open Free Checking Account   Get $152 Bonus (Thru 7/3/12)

Capital One 360 is celebrating Independence Day in a BIG way!

Right now, when you open a Capital One 360 checking account, you can earn a $152 bonus. Yes, that’s right – $152 in FREE money!

Here’s how it works:

  • Earn a $76 bonus for opening a Capital One 360 account by July 3rd at 11:59 pm EST and making a total of 5 purchases (either signature or PIN-based) using your Check Card or Person2Person Payments (or any combination of the two) within 45 days. Your $76 bonus will be automatically deposited into your account by August 22nd.
  • Earn an additional $76 for setting up Direct Deposit and have two Direct Deposits of at least $250 posted to your account by August 31st. Your second $76 bonus will be automatically deposited by September 10th.

If you’ve been reading KOAB for a while, you already know that I personally use, love and happily vouch for Capital One 360. In addition to have sub-accounts on our Capital One 360 savings account for sink funds, we also have a Capital One checking account. As I’ve said before, it’s the perfect virtual cash envelope.

We used it for a long time for our food budget, to make sure that we didn’t overspend. Once a month, we deposited our food money into the Capital One 360 checking account and then both my husband and I used our debit cards at the grocery store. You can learn more about our virtual cash envelopes HERE.

I don’t use Capital One 360 as my primary checking account and I still find it very worthwhile. It’s totally free to maintain, you don’t need to have a minimum balance, and there is free overdraft protection.

Plus, when you sign up before July 3rd, you get $152 in FREE money. That is no brainer, as far as I’m concerned!

Open your Free Capital One 360 checking & earn $152 in FREE money!

(P.S. Your bonuses will be coming at the end of the summer – perfect timing to pad your budget for the High Holidays!)

  1. I’m so excited! I’m finally doing this right now!

  2. We don’t have any direct deposit to get the bonus. :(

    • Shifra – You can still get the first $76 bonus (for using the debit card) – you just won’t get the second $76 bonus. It’s still more than the regular $50 bonus. And either way… free money is … free!

      • It only shows $50 bonus. Not $76. Will they still credit the $76? Thanks, Mara.

        • For some reason, they seem to have swapped out the links early. It was done a few hours ago. I know the kids’ saving is still tracking right (the instant bonuses ARE showing up). All the communication I’ve gotten from ING said this bonus was valid until 11:59 pm EST.

  3. It definitely said til 11:59pm EST, I am just not sure the system was recognizing it.

  4. I just got my first $76 bonus deposited today, right on time! Thanks, Mara! :)

    Do you know if the 2 Direct Deposits need to be $250 EACH or TOTAL?
