Citibank Checking and E-Savings Account $100 Bonus

Citibank is offering a $100 bonus for opening both a Regular Checking and a 4.75% APY e-Savings account online with at least $5,000. Note that you will get a hard credit inquiry. This bonus is bit time-intensive (you have to wait for an entire year), but it may be worth it if you have Citibank branches near you as this would also be a nice local checkings/savings combo. You must never have had a Citibank bank account to get this bonus. Here’s the fine print:

$100 offer is only available for first-time Citibank deposit (checking or savings product) account customers, and will be paid only once to any individual. Persons who currently have or at any time have had a deposit account at Citibank (or any of its predecessor banks) are not eligible.

To receive this offer you must: 1.) make a single application for both a new regular checking and e-Savings Account in the EZ Checking package and open both accounts by 03/31/2007 and fund the account with a minimum initial deposit of $5,000. $100 will be credited to your regular checking account within 90 days from the end of the statement period in which you met all of the above requirements.


  1. thank-u so helpful, when I had money I paid no attention to my money,but now that I don’t have any money I pay attention to the money I don’t have. I always been a good saver. but after learning all of this, my money would have been alot more. thank-u glenda

  2. 2) Open both accounts by 12/31/2006.

    It looks like the deadline for this one passed. Are you keeping it for historical purposes?

  3. Didn’t realize it had expired. I replaced with one that hasn’t.

  4. This one has now expired….any more recent?

  5. There is a better checking bonus out there is for total of $200 with a smaller initial deposit. Add $50 for savings bonus = $250.

  6. Eric, you say there is a better checking bonus out there for a total of $200 with a smaller initial deposit. Where is this? Please let us know and provide a link if possible. Thanks.


  1. […] now, I still think the best options are for people who live in a Citibank or Washington Mutual area to get a checking + 5% APY savings combo with them. You get checks, ATM […]
