This new Chase $125 Bonus is a little tricky. If you have a Chase credit card, go ahead and sign into your online account first. Then click on the link, and you shouldn’t have any problem. However, if you just click on it, they somehow redirect you to a sign-on page to a Chase account. Here’s a trick..as soon as you see the $125 bonus page. Hit the Stop Button ASAP. You can then print out and take it to a local Chase account. Ready? Chase $125 Bonus.
Most people reported that Paypal do not count as Direct Deposit anymore. You must A) use ING B) or ACH from HSBC, Citibank, or others C) Use you real check as DD.
Also, it’s stackable with a $25 referral coupon. Comment below to ask my readers for one.
Here’s the fine terms:
Offer valid 10/01/07 through 1/31/08. Chase Free Checking requires a $100 minimum opening deposit of new money to qualify for the $125 reward. Chase Free Checking has no monthly service fee when you have a monthly direct deposit. Limit one personal checking account-related reward/premium per customer, per calendar year. Offer not available on account conversions or in combination with any other offer. To qualify for the $125 reward you must open a new checking account and initiate a repeating direct deposit such as payroll, pension or Social Security. The first direct deposit must be completed within 60 calendar days of account opening. The $125 reward will be deposited into your new account within 6-8 weeks after the initial direct deposit and is not considered part of the minimum opening balance. Checking account must remain open for a minimum of six months or the reward will be debited from the account at closing. Account is subject to approval.

I don’t condone this but whatever..if you want to make more money, print a few hundreds of these unique coupons since Chase will take the link off soon. Then sell it on Ebay. I think they are going for $5 a piece.
