Here a couple good accounts with some easy bonus money, no fees, and only $1 to open. It ain’t much but hey free money is free money.
Etrade.com is offering a $25 bonus. From the website:

2 $25 will be credited to your Complete Savings Account within 30 days of the account being funded with a minimum deposit of $1. Payments will be reported as interest income. Accounts must be opened by February 28, 2007 to quality for the $25 offer. Must be a new account opened with new funds. Offer applies to one new account per customer. Not good with any other offer. This offer is not valid for E*TRADE FINANCIAL employees.
I don’t worry that much since i already bought a house and a car. I only worry cuz i want to do app o rama every year, and I want the highest credit score as possible. But i think these are soft pulls. You might want to check by calling their CSR.
Since you apply for so many bank accounts do you ever worry about the “hard pulls” that many banks do now when applying for accounts?
