Got an offer claiming to give me $150 for opening a new savings account at Chase with a $10,000 deposit. The $150 gets deposited after 90 days (more like 100 days if you read the fine print). But then you must leave the money in for 6 months and keep that $10K minimum balance the entire 6 months before closing to not lose the $150 bonus. So, in a nutshell, $150 in interest on $10K in 6 months. That's 1.5% return for 6 months (after 90 days, the account only pays .01%), which isn't bad (well, it's bad, but not for this economy). Anyone else get this offer? I'm considering it, but making sure there are no other pitfalls. There should be no service fees as long as I maintain a minimum balance (I'll maintain $10K minimum).
