The $400 deal we posted yesterday require a reservation number that was mailed out. I’ve seen the mail out for this offer and no reservation number was listed so it should be possible to open this without one. That means it’s publicly available. Typically these offers don’t last until the official end date, so if you’re interested we’d sign up sooner rather than later. I’ll definitely be adding this to the best checking bonus page as it’s well worth doing if you live in the targeted area.
