Just a reminder that today is the last day to open a Capital One 360 account and earn FREE money!
My daughter, Audrey, jumped at the chance to open her first savings account — she was thrilled that she would get a free $17.76 bonus. In fact, she was following me around the apartment last night saying, “I’m not trying to bug you, but I am hoping the next thing we do is open my savings account.”
After deciding how much of her own cash she wanted to add to the account, it took us a combined 15 minutes to create her account and Audrey did most of the typing. Here’s the info you’ll need to open a Kids Savings Account:
- Your Social Security Number
- Your child’s SSN
- Your local checking account routing number (found at the bottom of your checks)
There is no minimum deposit to open a savings account, which is perfect for kids with limited funds! You will fund the account by transferring money from your checking account. Audrey gave me her $10 cash and we transferred it for her.
We will be opening accounts for the boys this afternoon — they were way too busy ramming each other with pillows and whacking each other with sword glow sticks to make it to the computer before bedtime.
Capital One 360 has two sweet account offers for children running through tonight (7/3):
KIDS SAVINGS ACCOUNT — Earn $17.76 bonus!
Open a Kids Savings Account between June 30-July 3, 2012 and get a $17.76 bonus deposited into the account. The bonus is available for withdrawal after 30 days. No minimum deposit required.
This offer is only available when you open a new account with at least one new customer. Either you or the child must be a new Capital One 360 customer. The child must be under 18 years old. You can open more than one account as long as it is for a different child and that child is a new Capital One 360 customer.
MONEY ACCOUNT — Earn $27.76 bonus!
Open a MONEY account, a bank account and debit card parents and teens manage together, between June 30-July 3, 2012 and make one card transaction using your MONEY Card within 30 days and get a $27.76 bonus deposited into the account. The bonus will be automatically deposited into the account on day 35. No minimum deposit required. You can open more than one account as long as it is for a different child and that child is a new Capital One 360 customer.
Go here to create your Capital One 360 account! Remember, this offer is available through July 3, 2012 only.
