Please note the fine print states: You must have received an email or mail piece directly from Capital One with a promotional code. This hasn’t been enforced in the past, but people are still waiting on their bonuses from the last promotion.

The Fine Print
- To qualify for the $200 bonus, deposit at least $10,000.00 from a non-Capital One account no later than 12/31/2017 11:59 p.m., E.T.
- You must have received an email or mail piece directly from Capital One with a promotional code.
- If you currently have or have had a Savings product with Capital One Bank, Capital One 360 or ING DIRECT before or are a Capital One Associate, you won’t be eligible for the bonus.
- This offer cannot be combined with any other new account opening offer, and is strictly non-transferable. This offer is not valid for multiple accounts.
- If you quality for a bonus, Capital One will deposit the bonus money into your account within 60 days of completing the above conditions.
- Once it’s deposited, the funds will be available immediately. Account must be in good standing (not in default, closed, or suspended, or otherwise not in good standing).
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
This account has no monthly fees and there is also no early account termination fee.
Cumulative deposits have worked previously to trigger the $10,000 bonus requirement (e.g depositing & withdrawing $1,000 10 times has worked). They did offer a bonus recently that only required a deposit of $1,000 instead of $10,000. There is also no minimum deposit length which is nice. Personally I’d recommend waiting a bit as at the moment it seems like maybe they did start enforcing the targeted language in the last promotion, but maybe they just haven’t posted any bonuses for that yet. For now I won’t be adding this to the list of the best saving accounts bonuses.
