7) Open Bank Accounts
Some banks generously offer hundreds of dollars in sign up bonuses when you open a new account with them. Chase has one of the best deals with the opportunity to earn $200 just for opening a checking account and setting up direct deposit. Take it one step further and open a savings account, deposit $10,000, maintain that balance for 90 days and you’ll receive another $150. TD Bank is another institution offering a great deal. In some states, folks can receive $300 for opening a Premier Checking account that receives a minimum of $2,500 in direct deposits in the first 2 months. You can use these one-time bonuses for anything from investing in your favorite app (i.e. Acorns) or making a lump sum payment on a credit card to get your balance down. A big chunk of change is always helpful no matter how you use it.
