This offer is targeted, but there’s at least one conflicting DP which indicates that it may not be targeted (conflicting information from customer service representatives is nothing new; the majority of DPs indicate it is targeted). You should be able to call 1-888-464-0727 (press 2) to check if you are targeted. A customer service representative may also be able to pull up different offers for you. Even people that weren’t targeted for the last $200 bonus have stated they received the bonus anyway (this wasn’t the case with a previous $400 offer so YMMV).

The Fine Print
- IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE AN EMAIL OR MAIL PIECE DIRECTLY FROM CAPITAL ONE 360 WITH THE ABOVE CODE, YOU ARE INELIGIBLE FOR THIS BONUS OFFER.
- To qualify for the bonus, you must be the primary account holder, and this has to be your first 360 Checking account (this includes former Electric Orange accounts, too).
- Beginning January 9, 2017, to earn the $200 bonus you must accept the terms on a new 360 Checking® Account by March 31, 2017. 11:59 p.m., ET and receive 2 direct deposits of $250 or more within 60 days of accepting terms and conditions for your new account.
- You will receive the $200 credit to your checking account about 90 days after accepting terms and conditions.
- This offer cannot be combined with any other Capital One Bank® new account opening offer.
There are no monthly fees on this account and no early account termination fee.
There has been targeted offers of $400 and this bonus is once per lifetime so it might be worth waiting for a better targeted offer but no guarantees it comes along. Personally I wouldn’t sign up for this bonus unless I was targeted, but it does seem to be working for some people that weren’t targeted (as always this is very YMMV). Because of this I won’t be adding it to our best checking account bonus. Keep in mind there is a similar offer of $200 for their money market account as well.
