Wells Fargo Checking $250 Sign Up Bonus

Checking account bonuses often have a direct deposit requirement that makes them tough to complete if you don’t have a paycheck from an employer (and annoying even if you do).

The Wells Fargo sign up bonus caught my attention since you can complete the offer without a direct deposit requirement… and it’s easy!

The $250 sign up bonus for a Wells Fargo checking account is our Free Money [1] Friday offer.

How to Get Your $250 Sign Up Bonus

  1. Open a new account at Wells Fargo [2] by February 17, 2017.
  2. Deposit $25.
  3. Within 60 days either:
    • Make 10 debit card purchases OR
    • Make a direct deposit of $500.
  4. Earn $250 credited to your account within 45 days.

Terms and Conditions

  • You cannot be: a current owner on a Wells Fargo consumer checking account, a Wells Fargo team member, or a recipient of a consumer checking bonus in the past 12 months (limit 1 bonus per customer).
  • All consumer checking accounts, including non-interest-earning checking accounts (except Teen CheckingSM) are eligible for the bonus of $250. The prepaid Wells Fargo EasyPay® Card is not eligible.

More on Wells Fargo Checking

Avoid Service Fees. The everyday checking account has a $10 per month service fee. You can avoid the fee with a $1,500 balance, $500 in direct deposits or 10 debit card purchases monthly.

Fund with a Credit Card. You should be able to open the account with a $50 credit card [3] purchase on a Chase, Barclay or BOA card. I’m finishing up the spending on my Huge $5,325+ Credit Card Application Spree [4], so every last bit helps!

Amazon Gift Card Reloads. An easy way to meet the 10 purchases is to make 10 small Amazon gift card [5] reloads. The minimum is $0.50 per reload.
