Does Chase Match a Checking or Savings Bonus? (Yes, For 21 Days)
We know that Chase will match credit card bonuses for 90 days from applying. What about bank bonuses – will they match those as well?
A friend of mine just heard from Chase via secure message that they can change the promo code attached to the new account for the first 21 days after opening, provided the bonus has not already been credited.
Business checking bonuses can also be matched, both via secure message and in branch, according to reports in the comments here. It probably has the same 21 day timeframe.
We asked this same question back in 2015. At that time Chase did not match bank bonuses online/phone. Apparently, they now match for 21 days from when the account was opened by sending them a secure message with the new unique promo code. They can update the bonus code attached to your checking/savings account.
This question of Chase matching bank bonuses comes up often, and lots of people are asking it with regards to getting their $600 Chase checking/savings bonus matched for the new increased $900 bonus. So long as you get the unique promo code for the $900 bonus, it should be possible to have Chase update the promo code attached to your account. Please let us know your experiences with this.
Update 11/19/19: Based on the comments, it seems that using Secure Message is YMMV since it has to get escalated to someone who knows how to do it, and some have success (1), but not everyone. Going in-branch seems to work well. Some report it working in branch for up to 30 days.
