Last Chance For Chase $300 Checking & $200 Savings Bonuses

Chase are currently offering bonus of $300 when you open their checking account and $200 when you open their savings account and completing the bonus requirements. This offer is due to expire on March 7th, so if you’re interested then this is your last chance.

This is the best offer that Chase offers (as the $300 checking bonus is for the Chase total checking account rather than premier checking) so if you’re interested it’s better to get these bonuses sooner rather than later. In addition they have the following requirements you should be mindful of when churning these bonuses:

  • You’re limited to one Chase bonus per calendar year
  • Your account needs to be kept open for six months to avoid the early account termination fee
  • You’re not eligible for the bonus if you’re an  existing Chase customers, or those who have had accounts closed in the last 90 days (or with a negative balance)

Basically if you’re eligible now it’s best to get the bonus so you’ll be ready to get it again in 2018. When you’re in a Chase branch, you should check for Chase pre-approved offers as well as these bypass the Chase 5/24 rule. If you get the Chase Sapphire Preferred you might be able to get matched to this 75,000 point offer as well (one of the best credit card bonuses). It’s worth remembering you can’t be pre-approved for the Chase Sapphire Reserve 100,000 point offer currently, but if you’re under 5/24 then you should get that bonus before it decreases to only 50,000 points on March 12th.

    If I had total checking for 2 years, close within a month, then re-open again maybe next year when $300 is available again… will I able to get the bonus again?

  2. P says:

    I got:

    Bonus Code: We’re temporarily unable to complete your request. Please try again later.Offer Expires: 3/7/17
    Simply visit your local Chase branch with a copy of this page.

    Does a copy of the page without the bonus code work?

    I got this $300 checking coupon in the mail.
    I didnt do yet. I dont know why.
    Maybe i dont feel like playing around with direct deposit and keeping $1,500 as a minimum and so on.
    And with the $200 savings account, Im worried if i deposit $15,000 i will be raising some red flags…
    What do you think?

    • Rusty says:

      If you have any other account you can ACH push from into the Chase account, it’s really an easy account to keep fee free.

      Pretty much anything I’ve tried has counted as a DD for the purposes of keeping the account fee free. All you need to do is to push $500 total for the month into the account. You don’t even need to tie up $500 total to do this. You can push $100 5 times throughout the month, for example.

    • Meeting the direct deposit requirement is pretty easy, here are some ideas: https://www.doctorofcredit.com/knowledge-base/list-methods-banks-count-direct-deposits/#Chase

      Depositing $15,000 won’t raise any red flags, especially as it’s a bonus requirement. I say go for it! At least the checking bonus…

      • Abey says:

        Thanks guys. Maybe i’ll go for it.
        As someone commented a while ago.
        Instead of watching cat videos on youtube open a checking account 😂

        • alex says:

          you might be thinking of a 15000 cash deposit. large ach transfers are pretty common and I wouldn’t be worried about it

  4. Credit says:

    When I switch from fee credit card to no fee credit card the bank send me a new card with new card #.

    Does that count towards 5/24? That rule is effed up.

    • Abey says:

      No. definately not. When you downgrade and get a new card number its not gonna count as 5/24.
      5/24 is for new accounts on your credit report.

      • Credit says:

        That will show up as a new account. Changing from an annual fee card to a non annual fee card means you are changing the card type too (product change)

        I guess I really don’t know how chase 5/24 algorithms work. How can they distinguish between a product change and a new card.

        • Jake says:

          If they don’t do a hard pull for the product change, I don’t see how it could count towards the 5/24 rule

        • Bob says:

          Why are you saying someone is wrong when you say you don’t understand how it works. PC does not result in a new account. They can distinguish it b/c a new account will appear as a new account on your credit report, whereas the credit report does not show product changes. The account number for your new card will just be updated on the credit report and everything attached to the old account information will stay the same (e.g., open date, credit line). To the credit agencies, a product change is maintaining the same account. 5/24 is about new opened accounts.

          Of course, Google would’ve also answered this question for you in approximately 0.001 seconds…

  5. Jake says:

    So what you’re saying is that Chase might not offer this bonus again before July 1st?

    • Fiby says:

      You can always find these coupons available to buy on eBay. You may not be able to get the bonus coupon for free directly from Chase before July 1st.

  6. dan says:

    wish to confirm or re-confirm with Will & folks on here that the restrictions only apply to the personal acct, correct? while i have a biz chkg acct still open, i’ll still be qualified for this personal’s bonus?

  7. lingua says:

    I’m confused, and frightened for a bit:), by the “last chance” verbiage. Aren’t coupons always available for purchase, or as in my case, periodically received by mail?

  8. Jake says:

    Chase isn’t generating a coupon code for me. Is it possible that they ran out of unique codes?

  9. Young says:

    I opened a chase checking account last November and got the bonus this January. Am I eligible for another bonus this year or I have to wait until next year? thanks.

  10. Vijay says:

    whoever needs the code can let me know your email id, and I can pass on one your way…it expires today 3/07… by chance, anyone received $400 premier checking code in mail, which someone can share with me if not using…

  11. C says:

    I apologize for the newbie questions here….I am assuming that I can ignore verbiage on emailed or mailed bonus offers that state it is non-transferable and elsewhere names the person targeted, correct?

    And for those of you who churn in branch offers: do you rotate between Chase branches?

  12. JuicyJosh says:

    I thought I received and printed code today but was unavailable as mentioned elsewhere.

    We only want checking account and CSR card. Bank rep mentioned $300 promo for checking and $100 promo for new credit account. I can get $300 bank promo easy enough but does anyone know about this credit account $100 bonus? I can’t find anything.

  13. Tracy Cummer says:

    I currently have a Chase business checking account, would I be eligible to apply for this offer?

  14. Swapnil says:

    Anyone has coupon or code that will work after 03/07? I lost my chance today as I printed the coupon and didnt realize that it doesn’t have code till I went to the bank. And didnt have time to come back for it

  15. Dave says:

    Not sure if this is relevant but I thought I’d post it anyway since it was easy.

    2/10/17-Opened Chase Total checking

    2/27/17 -$500 Wells Fargo DD posted.

    3/7/17- $200 Bonus posted

    3/9/17 – switched account to Chase College to avoid maintence fees

  16. LX says:

    DP: Robinhood credit to bank worked to trigger the bonus. Took 8 days and a $1.00 credit was good enough.

    • CHA says:

      Can you please tell me how you did it? I know Robinhood is securities brokerage. What do you mean by “credit to bank”?

  17. Alex says:

    There is new coupon available for $200 Total checking + $150 Savings now till 7/17/17

  18. Dan says:

    Another confirmation of Chase bonus received via Robinhood ACH. Took about 10 days. If no old money is in Robinhood you must ACH in from Chase then ACH back.
