Taking candy from a baby

December 30th, 2013 at 06:50 pm

I was looking for the number to my lean holder on my car the other day and I came across the banking website for the company. I was on the site for about five minutes before I realized I was at the wrong place and before I went to hunt for the right site, I came across a promotion that the bank is running for the year. If I have at least $1500 directly deposited in an account and pay at least 2 bills from bill pay, I will have $20 deposited into a savings account each month! Yes! I said each month, not a one time deal. That's $240 per year doing two things I do anyway. I plan on taking advantage of that!

I currently have an account with another bank that I love and I have no plans of closing it. I am going have my monthly bills transferred to that account and use my new account for the extra payments that I am making to my debt, snowball by snowball and my car loan.

Is it normal for me to be THIS excited to open a bank account?!?! I can't get over how easy it is going to be for me to earn $240! I am still trying to decide what I want to do with the money; use it for Christmas or apply it to debt at the end of the year. I have 12 months to think about it though. I am going to open my account tomorrow and get the ball rolling on my direct deposit. $240 here I come!

    Would you care to share the bank that is offering this great deal?

    What a great deal! As for being excited, why not? Your priorities have changed and you are finding pleasure in saving!

    Oh, I recognize that deal. It's the "extra20 checking" offer from Santander Bank (formerly Sovreign).

    I considered that one myself....not bad.
