There is a new $100 bonus from Bank of America’s Yankees Account with offer code MLBEM100. In order to qualify for the $100 bonus, you must deposit $250 and make a debit purchase within 30 days of account opening. You will get the $100 bonus after 90 days. Offer is good until 5/15/2010.
*If you are opening online, I would Cover My Ass by doing a chat session with a BOA CSR and have a copy of the conversation to confirm. They are notoriously known for forgetting to pay their bonuses.
Here was my recent online chat with a BOA’s CSR:
Gail : Welcome to Bank of America! I am here to assist you with finding the account which best fits your needs. How may I assist you today?
Gail : Hello.
Gail : How may I assist you this evening?
You: I’m opening a checking account online
You: I want to make sure if this code is still good
You: it’s a $100 bonus offer
Gail : Let me check for you. One moment please.
Gail : Yes, the incentive offer is still valid.
