This bonus has expired and is no longer available. Click here for other bank promotions.
Reposting this as we now have datapoints of people receiving the bonus even if they weren’t targeted and even if they don’t have a Capital One credit card.
Apparently you will see the following during the sign up process:
Remember, you must meet all eligibility requirements to receive this bonus. You must have received an email, mail piece or notification directly from Capital One with the specific promo code. For 360 Money Market, you must deposit at least $10,000 by the offer expiration date listed in the offer disclosures. For 360 Checking you must receive 2 qualifying direct deposits of $250 or more within 60 days of accepting the terms and conditions.
The targeted section has not been enforced before, but YMMV.

The Fine Print
- These offers are only available for new customers and cannot be transferred.
- If you’re an existing Capital One Bank or Capital One 360 customer or a Capital One Associate you won’t be eligible for the bonuses. To receive any of these cash bonuses, your account must be in good standing (not in default, closed, or suspended).
- If you open an account through a business, it may be subject to closure/conversion. Bonus is only available for one 360 Checking account and one 360 Money Market account, and multiple new accounts will not qualify.
- You must have a valid Social Security number to open a 360 Money Market or 360 Checking account.
- $200 360 Money Market account bonus: Open your first Capital One 360 Money Market account online and deposit at least $10,000 no later than July 31, 2017, 11:59 p.m. ET. Capital One will deposit the $200 cash bonus into your money market account approximately 6–8 weeks after you accept the account terms and conditions.
- $300 360 Checking account bonus: Open your first Capital One 360 Checking account online no later than July 31, 2017, 11:59 p.m. ET. Receive two direct deposits of $250 or more each within 60 days of your acceptance of account terms and conditions. Direct deposits must be an electronic deposit of one of the following: your paycheck from your employer, Social Security/pension or other government benefits. Direct deposit is subject to employer or other payor options. Capital One will deposit the $300 cash bonus into your checking account approximately 6–8 week
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
Both accounts have no monthly fees to worry about. There is also no early account termination fees.
Savings bonus isn’t new, but $300 for checking is. There used to be a $400 bonus that was targeted but that’s no longer offered. If you’re eligible for the checking bonus or savings bonus then I’d definitely recommend them as it’s quite easy to meet the bonus requirements and no monthly fees to worry about either. For the savings bonus the best part of this bonus is that there is no minimum length the $10,000 needs to be deposited for (ACHing in & out smaller amounts has worked in the past). These are being added to our list of the best checking and savings account bonuses.
