It’s always good to know about checking account promotions. Right now, Bank of the West is giving away $100 for free if you open a checking account with them.

To avail of the promotion, all you have to do is make an initial deposit of $100 and set up a recurring deposit of at least $250. You get to choose from three types of checking accounts that matches your needs.

1. Free Checking – The free checking account means no monthly service charges and no minimum balance required. With the free checking account you get to enjoy unlimited use of the Bank of the West ATMS, online banking with bills payment, free mobile banking, discounts on loan rates, unlimited check writing if you have sufficient funds, and much more. You just need to have $100 minimum opening balance, your social security number, driver’s license or state ID, and your contact details.

2. Choice Interest Checking – Although the free checking sounds really hassle free, choice interest checking will give your more earnings as you can earn interest on every dollar of your account. You get to enjoy the same services as with the free checking account but you also have interest rates that vary by balance tier. However, you’ll be charged $10 monthly but there is a way to waive it through the amount of monthly balance you have. Same requirements will be needed.

3. Choice ATM Checking – With Choice ATM Checking, you can have free cash withdrawals at any institution’s ATM for one year. This saves you a lot of fees when you withdraw in other bank’s ATMS. Plus you will be free from the hassles of having to look for a specific ATM to save some bucks. After one year, your Choice ATM Checking account will be converted into a
Choice Interest Checking Account. You get to enjoy the same services and the same requirements will be needed.

If you’re wondering where to open a checking account, why not try opening one in Bank of the West? Doing so will get you $100 free plus the usual benefits of a regular checking account. Promotion is available from February 14, 2011 to March 25, 2011.
