*UPDATE*- Here is a fresh code til 7/31/2012 for the $200 offer after your first Direct Deposit for the Premier Rewards Checking account: WB2
- $50 minimum to open, can fund from linked Costco Capital 1 account.
- Keep average balance of $1500, combined balance of $3000 across Deposit accounts (Costco Capital One Savings), or monthly direct deposit of $1000 or more.
- Open by 7/31 and set up DD within 90 Days of opening, receive $200 Bonus in 6-8 weeks.
Currently, there is no Capital One bank bonus for regular checking account. However, few people have reported that the $300 bonus Capital One’s old checking offer code RC3 is still working for applying for their Free Rewards Checking account recently. The offer code RC3 is good for $300 bonus for depositing just $50 into your account. You must also set up direct deposit to your account within 90 days of account opening. If you are going to open a Capital One bank checking account anyway, you might as well give this a try. However, this is Your Mileage May Vary(meaning it may work, it may not). This promotion is over since last year, but here’s a copy of the $300 promotion offer just in case you need to show the banker.
What to do:
- Visit a Capital One Bank nearest you.
- Talk to a banker about opening a Rewards Checking Account.
- Tell them that you will be using offer code RC3.
- Produce the letter only if they requested it.
Free Rewards Checking Features:
- Get free checking. No monthly service fee and no minimum balance requirement.
- Get automatic rewards for everyday banking (debit card use, ATM withdrawal, online bill pay).
- Get cash, travel, merchandise rewards.
If the $300 promotion code doesn’t work, you may try the Free Rewards Checking account $200 bonus with the offer code RD2. Make sure you can get $200 bonus for joining and it should be notated on your account. Here’s a copy of the $200 promotion letter, but I would only show it if they asked for it. Again, the promotion has been expired since last year. No direct deposit is required but you must make 2 debit requirements to qualify.
