EDIT: Deal is now over, but Capital One 360 is still a great online bank that I personally use.From July 1st through July 3rd 11:59 PM ET, Capital One 360’s Financial Independence Days Sale is on. If you haven’t signed up for an online bank account to help you with targeted savings, now is your chance to do it… with an extra bonus of free money.
Earn a $76 bonus when you open a 360 Savings account:
· Open a no-fee 360 Savings account between July 1st and 3rd and snag $76.
o This has to be your first 360 Savings account and it needs a $500 minimum deposit.
o The bonus starts earning interest on day 1, but you can't take it out for at least 30 days.
Get a $100 bonus when you open a 360 Checking account:
· Open a fee-free 360 Checking account between July 1st and 3rd (with a deposit of $500 or more) and grab $100.
o This has to be your first 360 Checking account.
o Make a total of 5 purchases (either signature or PIN-based) using your 360 Checking Debit Card, make 5 CheckMate deposits or any combination of the two within 45 days.
· Your $100 bonus will be automatically deposited into your account on day 50.
There are other limited offers from Capital One 360, but the Savings and Checking accounts are my favorite. These are the only options I would recommend. It's a quick way to earn $176 to jump-start your savings.
