Bank of America Checking account $300 Sign-Up Bonus

As covered in our Chase checking account hack which can be found here, I wanted to cover a similar hack for BoA too.

There are two offers available – a targeted offer and a public offer.

Targeted offer gives $300 when you make $4000 qualifying direct deposits in 90 days (best for full time salaried workers) and the public offer gives $100 when two qualifying direct deposits of over $250 each are made.

Student Hack

While making your account, make sure to enter you are a student as you fill up the form. Alternatively, you may call up BoA or visit a local branch and furnish your student ID to convert your account to a student account after receiving the sign-up bonus.

Recommendation after receiving bonus

Move unused or idle funds/balances to a High Yield Savings account so that they generate a constant compound interest. Read more on that here.

Happy hacking and enjoy that free money!
