- Chase is offering a bonus of $225 when you open a new Chase Savings account and deposit $15,000 or more in new money within 20 business days of account opening and maintain that balance for 90 days.
The Fine Print
- Savings offer is not available to existing Chase savings customers, those with fiduciary accounts, or those whose accounts have been closed within 90 days or closed with a negative balance.
- To receive the bonus: 1) Open a new Chase SavingsSM account, which is subject to approval; 2) Deposit a total of $15,000 or more in new money within 20 business days of account opening; AND 3) Maintain at least a $15,000 balance for 90 days from the date of deposit.
- The new money cannot be funds held by Chase or its affiliates.
- After you have completed all the above requirements, we’ll deposit the bonus in your new account within 10 business days.
- You can only receive one new savings account opening related bonus every two years from the last enrollment date and only one bonus per account
- The bonus is considered interest and will be reported on IRS Form 1099-INT (or Form 1042-S, if applicable).
This account has a $5 monthly fee that isw aived if you do any of the following:
- Maintain a daily balance of at least $300 or more
- Have at least one repeating automatic transfer of $25 or more from your Chase personal checking account
- Are under 18 years of age
- Have a linked Chase Premier Plus, Chase Premier Platinum Checking or Chase Private Client checking account.
This deal turns the equivalent of a 6% APY by locking up $15k for 90 days. There are currently three other offers available as well (both expire soon):
- $150 savings bonus with $10,000 deposited for 90 days (in-branch only, turns out to a 6% APY return)
- $200 savings bonus with $15,000 deposited for 90 days (same as the offer posted here, just $25 less, no reason to do that one)
- $300 savings bonus with $25,000 deposited for 90 days (works onlin; turns out to a 4.8% APY return)
If you have an extra $10k on hand, you’ll earn the equivalent of a 3% APY rate on the extra $10k by doing the $300/$25k offer instead of doing the $225/$15k offer – up to you if it’s worth it. You can also do a $300 checking offer as well if you’re interested.
We’ll add this best savings bonuses, alongside the above-mentioned $300 savings offer.
