Looking for extra cash when you open a checking account? Mountain America Credit Union is giving away $125 for opening a new checking account with them. This promotion isn’t visible on their website, but it is a promotion to get consumers to “like” their Facebook page. Liking the page will show potential consumers the coupon that entitles the bearer to a bonus $125 when a checking account is opened.

Promotion Specifics

In order to qualify for the the reward, Mountain America’s coupon must be presented in any Mountain America branch. Open a checking account with them, sign up for eStatements and initiate a monthly direct deposit such as payroll, pension, unemployment, Social Security, and other government benefits within 60 days of coupon redemption. The reward will be deposited into your account within 30 business days after requirements are complied.

Some things to consider is that the account must remain open for a minimum of six months from the reward date. If the account is closed before six months, the $125 amount will be debited upon account closing. The reward is also limited to one person per household, and the offer is not available for account conversions.
