Like the previous posts, this offer is available in Lexington, Kentucky too. This seems an ongoing promotion that doesn’t expire but not churnable according to the disclosure. I successfully opened at a branch and received $200.

Further info:
– Their definition of “recurring direct deposit” is 3 or more direct deposits from the same source within 90 days.
– Bank manager also told me that deposits have to be greater than $200. (i.e. at least $201, $200 exactly will not trigger the bonus.)
– You also receive a $5 bonus for enrolling in eStatements. Enrolling in eStatements keeps the account fee free.

I’ve opened 20-25 bank accounts so I would guess at least 10-15 Chex inquiries.

The website now makes it sound like you have to open the Gold Checking, even though it says checking account elsewhere on same page. If that is the case, at $5 a month and not waived for Gold Checking, this deal got a lot worse.

I may close my account soon and have SO try. I will post what ends up happening, if she goes for it. The whole in branch only is such a pain. Will probably call ahead and see what the banker says about it.

Hi Gadget,
Are they still not Chex sensitive ? Did u get approved recently ? I have more than 12+ chex inquiries and dont want to drive there until I am sure they are not Chex sensitive.
Thx

City sold my local branch to some crappy bank in NC that doesn’t offer a bonus. So, I am no longer in City’s footprint and don’t foresee myself in those areas of VA/WV anytime soon. Good luck if you try it. Don’t imagine we will see a lot of feedback from DoC readers, so report back if you try it.

Nothing on that page seems to indicate the bonus is limited to those States.
They also have branches in Lexington Kentucky.
