Chase is currently offering bonuses for opening checking and savings accounts, with the opportunity to earn $250 if you take advantage of both promotions.

On the checking side, you’ll earn $150 upon opening a Chase Total Checking account and setting up direct deposit. Meanwhile, opening a Chase Savings account with a deposit of $10,000 or more in new money within 10 business days gets you a $100 bonus. (Note that you’ll need to maintain that balance for a minimum of 90 days). Neither of these opportunities present a mileage or points-earning opportunity, but free money is free money. And to avoid service fees you’ll need to have monthly direct deposits of $500 or more (or maintain a set minimum balance), so you can treat the checking account like a travel fund and start saving for your next trip.

Chase $250 bonus

To take advantage of the offer, get the coupon here and print it out before heading to a Chase branch and setting up the new account(s). This particular promotion is set to expire on January 15, 2016, though Chase is known to offer discounts on a pretty regular basis. There are also reports of a targeted mailer offering double bonuses (but with a higher minimum balance), so if you’ve received one of those in the mail you’ll want to use that instead.
