Bank of the West - $100 - (practically) Nationwide

We've got another great big bank deal for you in rapid succession to our previously posted PNC one. This one also offers $100 and may actually be slightly easier, though you only have till 9/16/2011 to sign up versus 9/30.

With this particular offer, all you really need to do is sign up for the account, make an initial deposit and set up direct deposit. You'll need to start with an initial deposit of at least $100 and you'll need to set up monthly direct deposit where each direct deposit must be at least $250. If you get this taken care of within 60 days, you can expect the handsome reward of $100 for the minimal effort you're required to put into this.

You're probably wondering where you can go sign up for this great big bank deal. Well, here you go. Enjoy!

PNC - $100 - DC, DE, FL, IL, IN, KY, MD, MI, MO, NJ, OH, PA, VA and WI

After some time, we have yet another great big bank deal for you. This one is from PNC as one before and is fairly widely available (see available locations in title). So what's the trick?

Well, you'll want to set up a PNC "Virtual Wallet" account first. Once your account is set up you'll need to perform the following within the ensuing 60 days to earn your $100 for this great bank deal:

- Set up direct deposit (from something such as a paycheck) that will total at least $750 within the above-mentioned time-frame.
- Make 10 or more purchases with the associated debit card

Sounds easy enough? You must be wondering, what's the catch?

- You must open your account before 9/30/11
- You must keep your account open during this period (duh)
- You can't have closed an account with PNC within the past 90 days
- You must be a new PNC checking customer.
- You must open the account online.

The last aspect is particularly important. You don't want to go into a local branch - you have to open the account online in order to eligible for this great big bank deal. Now go enjoy premonitions of that $100 extra dollars of spending money!
