Extended: The easiest $250 I’ve ever made.


We’ll be posting daily on personal finance, investing, and saving; maximizing rewards points, credit card, and bank offers; and, more importantly, how you can create wealth by learning from our detailed experiences.

Over the last couple of years, I have received $5,000 in bank sign up bonuses (I’ll detail this in a future Finance Punk post). They can be pretty easy to get and require no hard credit inquiry. Usually, the most difficult aspect is tying up $1500+ for, sometimes, months. However, you will experience no such difficulty with the following:

So, here is the easiest $250 I’ve ever made without leaving my home:

The following language has been removed from this offer:

“This is an exclusive, nontransferable offer, available to those who received our direct mail or e-mail offer.”

Now that there is no targeted language, everyone who hasn’t had a personal Wells Fargo bonus in the last 12 months can receive this bonus.

You must open and deposit a minimum of $25 by March 24th, 2017 to be eligible for this offer.

Step 1: Use thisĀ direct link, type in your zip code, and click “Open an Everyday Checking account.”

Step 2: DO NOT select the overdraft protection check box to ensure Wells Fargo does not pull your credit and then open the account and fund with a credit card up to $50 or transfer from an existing bank account.

Step 3: Activate your debit card, after you receive it in the mail, and use it to make 10 purchases – the easiest way to do this is to buy 10, $0.50 amazon egift cards on amazon.com.

Step 4: Wells Fargo will credit $250 into your account.
