I have made $75 in the last 2 weeks by largely doing nothing.
I got a letter from First Bank offering me a $25 Visa gift card to open a checking account, so I did. Today, I went to Chase to close my account and the bank manager convinced me to instead close my old account and open a new one, and he would deposit $50 into it.
I can't imagine that free, bare-bones checking accounts like mine (daily balances averaging less than $500) are profitable as it is. With incentives like this, I am sure they are losing money. This is awesome. I feel like somehow, I am sticking it to the man. Ah, competition.
I'll probably close the account next week, after the incentive clears.
