TCF Bank is currently having a promotion where you can earn up to $150 in sign-up bonuses, plus another $150 in referral bonuses. I have a personal rule that a bank bonus must be at LEAST $100 before I even bother hassling with signing up for a new account, so I went ahead and hopped on this one. It’s an easy $150 even without the referrals. A good deal hasn’t come along like this since the Chase bank bonuses about a year ago. Thanks to Mako for the heads-up.

To receive the full $150, you must fulfill three requirements by Sept. 30, 2008: direct deposit, bill payment, and automatic transfer from a TCF checking account to TCF savings account. You can receive up to another $150 for up to three referrals. The details are below.

Receive $50 FREE for each:

  • Direct Deposit – To qualify for $50, the checking account must have a direct deposit of $25 or more from a third part source that must post to the account by September 20, 2008.
  • Direct Payment – To qualify for $50, a direct payment from a third party source must post to the account by September 30, 2008.
  • Automatic Transfer – To qualify for $50, an automatic transfer of $25 or more from a TCF checking account to a TCF savings account must post by September 30, 2008.
  • Referral (up to 3) – New referral accounts must be opened by September 30, 2008 and the new customer must present a completed Tell-A-Friend form in order to receive the award.

Some comments I have from setting up my own account: Decline checks. They will charge you to print and ship them, so make sure to tell them NO checks when signing up for the account.  Also, this bank is open until 7pm, so there is plenty of time to set up an account after work! For the three requirements, I set up direct deposit of $25 at work, I paid my Cox bill online using my checking account, and I transferred $25 from my savings account to the checking account (It’s easiest to set up the transfer at the time of signing up for the account). Since there is no minimum time that the accounts must be open, I will close both accounts once I receive all my bonus money.

If you would like to open an account with my referral, please let me know. I have two left that I would be glad to share. Thanks!
