- Citi is offering a bonus of 30,000 American Airline miles when you open a new CitiBusiness checking account and complete the following requirements:
- Deposit $5,000 in new to citibank funds and maintain for 60 consecutive days
The Fine Print
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
The easiest account to keep fee free is the CitiBusiness®Streamlined Checking Account, this has a monthly fee of $15 and is waived have an average monthly balance of $5,000 or more.
Early Account Termination Fee
There is no early account termination fee to worry about.
Rare to see a business checking bonus from Citi, they last offered one in late 2017. This offer is easy to meet the requirements for, basically just deposit $5,000 and maintain it for 60 days. That’s also enough to keep the account fee free as well. Should be possible to close the account as soon as the bonus posts, but double check the fine print on your offer. It’s a shame this is targeted as if it wasn’t I’d be adding this to the best business checking bonuses.
