Fulton Bank is a small financial group mainly based in the Northwest. As part of their checking account promotion, they are offering consumers the chance to get a Kindle Fire from Amazon. Here’s how you can get one for yourself:

1. Open a checking account

There are several options for you to choose from. For those between the ages of 16-22, Fulton Bank offers the student checking account. This is a great way for youngsters to start learning financial responsibility.

Customers who want to maintain low account rates and fees all year round can avail of the Free checking account. To get highly competitive rates, the Interest checking is the perfect account for you. Meanwhile, customers who are over 50 years old can enjoy the many benefits of having a Prime Life Interest checking account.

Two other accounts offered by Fulton Bank can provide you greater interest as your account grows itself. These are the Relationship banking checking account and the Relationship banking heritage club. The only difference between the two is that the latter is open only for ages 50 and over.

Signing up is easily done online.

2. Open a direct deposit

Once your account is active, you are required to complete the forms for application for automatic payment or deposit. This will ensure direct payments to your account coming from payroll, pensions, or Social security. If a direct deposit of more than $250 is made within the last 60 days upon account opening, you are eligible for the free Kindle fire.

Direct deposit does not include payments to yourself or from other family members. The deposit must be made through Fulton Bank’s online banking.

3. Make 3 or more online bill payments

Enroll in online banking and make 3 or more online payments during the initial 90 days upon account opening. Payments made to yourself are not counted.
