$100 Free from Key Bank

It's back!

If you are a long time reader, you know I took advantage of this offer when Key Bank did it back when they ran this campaign in May/June.

I received my $100 very quickly, and loved the whole process with Key Bank. I have had no issues.

So, I am very excited they are running it again.

Hey Carrie,
I have a question I wonder each time you post about a bank offer. Each bank offer seems to include the requirement of Direct Deposit. Do you continue direct deposit to every bank you open up accounts for offers at? OR do you constantly adjust which banks your direct deposits are going to? My husband's direct deposit can be split between many banks but that seems really confusing when it comes time to pay bills and work within our budget.
Just Curious....

Awesome Beth! Isn't it fun to get your home bills lowered? And, it is so easy!

Becky,

Go to the button on my left side bar titled Bank Offers and read my instructional. In there, I explain how I split my husbands direct deposits up.

But, the simple answer. Since I do so many Bank Offers, I only put the amount they need in for however long ( usually 2 direct deposits need to hit ) and then I reset that direct deposit up to the next Bank Offer I am doing.

My husband can split his check 4 ways. We have the bulk going to our High Interest Checking. We have another portion to our investment account and and third portion going to 529s for the kids.

Then, I have one direct deposit I use for Bank Offers. I ONLY put in what the Bank requires, then I go into that bank and do a bank transfer ( takes a few seconds online ) to transfer that money back to our "real" checking account. This way it doesn't affect bills, etc. Just make sure to leave the minimum balance in the new Bank unti you are allowed to close the account. Most offers ask that you remain a bank member for 6 months, or they will take away your Bonus. So, after 6 months, for example, I then cancel the bank account.

Hope all that makes sense.

Finally, to "cents"able momma...thanks so much! I will go check out the award today! I am honored and can't wait until you take the step into the "big" money makers!
