Chase is offering an interesting incentive for opening a checking account with them: A free iPod Shuffle. To get the iPod, you need to open a Free Checking account and establish Direct Deposit within 60 days. The checking account must remain open for 6 months or Chase will charge your account $79 (the cost of the iPod Shuffle). This promotion is available at all Chase branches in Illinois and in Chase branches in Lake County, LaPorte County and Porter County in Indiana. The iPod offer is valid through December 30th.
I don’t see the offer listed on their website, so here’s a copy of the ad.
