keybank checking bonusKey Bank has two great checking account bonus offers today! Depending on the type of account you open or can open, you will be eligible to earn $125 or $225 in cash.

To earn the $125 cash bonus from Key Bank you have to open either their ‘Key Express Free Checking Account” or the “Key Advantage Money Market Checking.” Currently the money market account in our state is paying an interest rate of about 0.05% APY, your state may offer better rates.

How To Get The $125:

To make the $125 bonus you must make one debit card transaction and a combination of either two direct deposits or automated payments each of $100 or more.

To earn the $225 cash bonus from Key Bank you have to open either their “Key Privilege Checking Account” or their “Key Privilege Select Checking Account.”

  • The “Key Privilege” account puts both your banking account and investment account together.
  • The “Key Privilege Select” account offers its customers premium solutions and personal services. So to get the $225 bonus you must be a high roller. They make it hard to get bonuses from banks, or at least high bonuses.

How To Get the $225:

To make the $225 bonus you must qualify for their higher end checking account and then make one debit card transaction and a combination of either two direct deposits or automated payments each of $100 or more.

This deal is good until November 20, 2009 and may not be offered to you. Check out Key Bank’s promo page for more details and eligibility. Key bank operates out of many states in the west and most recently Colorado. Be sure to check the promo page to see if you are able to sign up from your state.

Colorado is KeyBank’s first venture outside of the Northwest and Northeast (outside of Florida) and may be a sign of the bank looking to expand across the country. You can find a location near you by visiting their promotional page here.

To celebrate the expansion into Colorado, KeyBank is now offering a 16 month and 32 month CD special with rates of 1.75% and 2.75%. These rates are competitive to the highest cd rates of today, but the minimum deposit is $10,000, which is high compared to what is available. An example is, Discover Bank has a 2.35% rate on a 30 month CD with a minimum deposit of $2,500 and ING Direct’s 2.10% 12 month CD has no minimum deposit. These CD specials are also only available at the new Colorado branches only.

The best deal with KeyBank opening in Colorado is that they are giving out a $200 checking bonus to anyone who opens a new account at one of the new locations. You will not find the deal on its website, but can find a print ad that has been running in the Denver Post. To earn the $200 bonus all you need to do is open the account by 12/4/09 and make one debit card transaction and a combination of two direct deposits and/or automatic payments each of $100 or more by 2/5/10.
