U.S. Bank is at it again! Free money just for opening an account! The Sunnyside Albertsons branch is offering $75 to anyone opening a new checking account by Friday, February 26. It’s a super simple way to make $75 and only takes a few minutes from beginning to end. Follow these directions:
1. Go to the U.S. Bank branch inside the Sunnyside/Happy Valley Albertsons
2. Open a checking account
3. Deposit at least $75; you will immediately receive a debit card
4. Go through Albertsons and purchase at least $75 worth of groceries or gift cards using your new debit card. This must be a non-PIN purchase.
5. Immediately take your receipt(s) to the U.S. Bank counter and the teller will reimburse your account the $75 by the next business day
Don’t be worried about messing this up. The tellers at this branch are incredibly helpful and they know you are coming in just for the $75. Just tell them Frugal Living NW sent you! They will walk you through the entire process and make sure you do it correctly.
You do not have to immediately make your purchase nor do you have to do it at Albertsons. You can bring in receipts worth $75 from any store and receive the credit. Just make sure you use your new debit card in a non-PIN transaction (the cashier pushes the credit key instead of the debit key). I always suggest just doing it at the Sunnyside store so you can get it done in one trip.
This offer is open to new U.S. Bank customers only and only at the Sunnyside Albertsons branch.
EDIT: You will probably get a tax form next January describing that you received the $75 as income, so you’ll be taxed on it for 2010.
