If cash doesn’t entice you to open a new checking account, how about a Kindle Fire HD? BBVA is currently offering the 7-inch tablets (retail for $199) to new checking account customers. In order to qualify for the free tablet, one need to open a Build-to-Order Checking with a $25 minimum deposit, have one direct deposit of at least $300 from unrelated third party within 90 days, and make three online payments of at least $50 each within 90 days. In order to avoid the account monthly charge of $10.95, an average daily balance of $1,500 is required. I prefer cash bonus so I won’t jump on it. But this is definitely one of the more interesting offers out there for new checking.
