What’s the deal with TechCU?

California residents can currently earn a bonus of up to $150 when opening a checking account with Tech CU Credit Union through August 17th, 2017. The offer is for new customers aged 18 or above who haven’t had an account relationship with Tech CU in the past 12 months; so technically you can actually be a previous customer to get this bonus! You’ll earn $100 with one recurring monthly direct deposit and another $50 when you’ve made three online bill payments.

What’s the deal with Santander?

If you prefer to open an account with a bank rather than a credit union, nationwide Santander branches are offering $150 to new checking account customers who open an account by January 16th, 2017. There’s three current online offers that offer a $150 bonus:

Airline Credit Cards
  • Open and use a Santander Simply Right Checking account
  • Open and use a Santander Premier Plus Checking account
  • Open and use a Santander  Basic Checking account

You can also apply in-branch for any of these three offers by first printing off a coupon.

If you’re not sure whether to open a bank account or an account with a credit union, you can read our post about the differences and the reasons why you should choose either here.

What else do I need to know about the TechCU and Santander deals?

Tech CU states that the promotion may end earlier than August, 2017.
