Chase $600 Bonus for Checking + Savings (2024)

Chase is offering a $600 bonus when you open both a Chase Total Checking® account and a Chase SavingsSM account and complete qualifying activities.

This is one of the best bank bonuses that you can take advantage of. I recommend you to do this if you’re eligible. Full details of this combo checking and savings account offer below.

For more current bank offers, see our bank bonuses page. The most popular offers are from Chase BankSoFi, U.S. Bank, and Axos Bank.

Chase Checking + Savings $600 Bonus Offer

Chase has brought back an incredible promotion, offering a total bonus of $600 when you open a checking and savings account and complete qualifying activities:

  • Get $300 when you open a new Chase Total Checking® account.
  • Get $200 when you open a new Chase SavingsSM account.
  • Get $600 when do you both (an extra $100 bonus).

You can also combine this welcome bonus with the $300 Chase business checking offer (you don’t need a registered business) and the $3,000 Chase Private Client offer for a potential total bonus of $3,900!

Ninja Update: The $600 checking + savings account bonus has expired, but there’s a $300 checking account bonus that’s available and you can stack it with the other Chase offers mentioned above.

Who qualifies for the Chase $600 bonus?

You are eligible for one Chase checking bonus and one savings account opening related bonus every two years from the time of your last bonus enrollment or coupon enrollment date.

Each account type has a separate timer, so if for example you enrolled in a checking bonus from Chase in the last two years, but didn’t open a savings account within the same time frame, you’re eligible for the savings bonus.

The other eligibility requirement is the checking offer is not available to existing Chase checking customers and the savings offer is not available to existing Chase savings customers. Both offers are also not available to customers whose accounts have been closed within 90 days or closed with a negative balance within the last 3 years.

What are the details?

Availability: Nationwide
Expiration: 4/30/24
Household Limit: None (everyone in your family can get the bonus!)
Direct Deposit Required: Yes, any amount for checking account
Soft/Hard Pull: Soft
Early Account Termination Fee: None listed

The Chase $600 bonus is broken up as follows:

  • Chase Total Checking®: Receive a bonus of $300 when you open a Chase Total Checking account and have a direct deposit of at least $500 within 90 days of account opening.
  • Chase SavingsSM: Receive a bonus of $200 when you open a Chase Savings account and deposit $15,000 or more in new money into the new savings account within 30 days of account opening and maintain a balance of $15,000 for 90 days.
  • Extra Bonus: Receive an extra $100 bonus when you open the checking and savings account at the same time and complete all requirements for both the checking bonus and savings bonus.

Chase will deposit the bonus due within 15 days of completing the requirements.

Where do I enroll?

Avoiding Fees

The Chase Total Checking® account has a monthly fee of $12 and the Chase SavingsSM account has a monthly fee of $5. Both can be waived if you do ONE of the following each monthly statement period:

Chase Total Checking®:

  • Make an electronic deposit into the account totaling $500 or more
  • Keep a minimum daily balance of $1,500 or more
  • Keep an average daily balance of $5,000 or more in all your qualifying Chase accounts combined

Chase SavingsSM:

  • Keep a minimum daily balance of $300 or more
  • Have $25 or more in total Autosave or other repeating automatic transfers from your personal Chase checking account (one-time transfers do not count)
  • Link a Chase College CheckingSM account to this account for Overdraft Protection
  • Be an account owner who is an individual younger than 18
  • Have a linked Chase Premier Plus CheckingSM, Chase SapphireSM Checking, or Chase Private Client CheckingSM account

Chase $600 Bonus Terms & Conditions

  • Account Closing: If either the checking or savings account is closed by the customer or Chase within six months after coupon enrollment, we will deduct the bonus amount for that account at closing.
  • Offer Eligibility: Checking offer is not available to existing Chase checking customers and savings offer is not available to existing Chase savings customers. You can receive only one new checking and one new savings account opening related bonus every two years from the last enrollment date and only one bonus per account. 
  • Bonuses: Bonus offers are not available to those whose accounts have been closed within 90 days or closed with a negative balance.
  • Taxes: Bonuses are considered interest income and will be reported on IRS Form 1099-INT.

The Bottom Line

This is the best promotion Chase has offered to the public and definitely belongs in the list of the best bank bonuses.

I also opened the Chase Business Complete Checking for an additional $300 (business account bonuses are considered separate offers so you can do both). It’s a great checking account to actually use too.

In the past, you could have done this every year, but since it got so popular, they have increased the time required between receiving bonuses to every two years.

The savings account requirement of depositing and maintaining $15,000 for 3 months may be difficult for some people, but everyone should at least be opening up a checking account if eligible. Getting $300 for having one direct deposit is easy breezy, lemon squeezy.

I did this deal for all four of my family members for an easy $2,400 in free money!

With the new offer that expires in July I can not find anywhere in the terms and conditions that the account must be open for 6 months or the bonus will be withdrawn. I checked all of the spots I could think of for terms listing. Is this not the case anymore?

The literature from Chase is very explicit, as pertains to the Total Checking and Savings Accounts (either individual or combined bonus offers) pursuant to the terms for meeting requirements of account standing:

“After you have completed all the above requirements, we’ll deposit the bonus in your new account within 15 days. To receive any of the above bonuses, the enrolled account must not be closed or restricted at the time of payout.”

So – No, it is not required that either or both accounts remain open 6 months from enrollment. Ostensibly…need only be open an additional 15 days AT MOST once terms for bonus(es) eligibility have been met, or once bonus(es) are deposited…whichever is soonest. The accounts can be closed as soon as the same day as the deposit of bonuses…without incurring “clawback” activity initiated by Chase.

Incidentally – there only need be ONE direct deposit into checking, so long as it’s completed in the final month of the 90 day bonus cycle. Likewise, there only need be the $15k deposit into savings for two months, so long as it’s completed no later than 30 days after the savings account is opened…and still not incur the monthly maintenance fees for these accounts. Chase waives the monthly maintenance fee for the first two statement cycles – the soonest maintenance fees would be applied, therefore, would be during the final statement cycle (final 30 days) before the bonus determination period concludes.

Hope someone answers . . . Does this just require a one-time direct deposit of any amount?
Will an ACH push from my regular hometown bank count? Will a transfer/push from Charles Schwab work? I see you have Vanguard scratched out on the “what counts as DD” list. Hate to hassle with my government paycheck just to make one DD.

If I open these 2 Chase accounts, I’m hoping to get approved for a Chase Business credit card with a good sign up bonus. Got denied a yr ago partly because of “no other banking relationship” with them. Also because I paid off loans and don’t have any current mortgage or car payment. They actually WANT you to owe money and be paying on other loans. Weird. My credit score is high.

This is not a good deal for the customers. The interest rate is .01%, the bank will make back the $600 bonus in 4 or fewer months on your $15,000 deposit. chase is pretending to give you $. Schwab has a 3% cd for 1 yr which would be better for most customers who have $15,000 to deposit. Looks are deceiving sometimes.

It’s not $600 bonus, only $200 – “Receive a bonus of $200 when you open a Chase Savings account and deposit $15,000 or more in new money into the new savings account within 30 days of account opening and maintain a balance of $15,000 for 90 days.”

Their advertising is deceptive because it’s not 90 days, it should say 180 days and deposit $15,005.00. If you close the account prior to 180 days (6 months) they take their $200 back. Also, if the account doesn’t get funded immediately (same day). The following month they charge you a $5 fee for not having a minimum of $300 at the start of each day, which brings your balance down to $14,995 in essence voiding the offer. They are a terrible bank!

I was thinking the same about the bonus on the saving account. I did not expect it to be the case that I have to keep the money in the account of 15k for 6 months. The banker who opened my account did not even tell me that I had to deposit 15k on the same day I open the account. Oh dang it

Did this actually happen to you (about charging a service fee the first month because your account wasn’t immediately funded, and then voiding the offer because your account went below $$15,000) or are you just speculating that they would do this?

This math is still wrong. To get $450 from a CD you’d need to leave the money in for 1 yr. In this case you only need the full amount in for a bit over 3 months… so the 3% CD (if you could get one for 3 months, which you can’t) is only worth $112.

Also, you do not need to leave the full $15K in for 6 months. After 3 months, you can reduce your balances to $300 in the savings account and $1500 in checking.

Also, I don’t believe that Chase will charge a fee for having a zero balance when you open the savings account. Most banks give you a month after new account opening, without fees. But, I always deposit a bit more than $15,000 just in case.

HOWEVER, Chase is being stricter than ever about the “direct deposit.” I made a deposit from my Vanguard IRA, and I’m currently fighting with Chase over whether this is truly a retirement account. Now that I’ve sent them screen-shots from Vanguard, I expect Chase to honor the deal – but – I wouldn’t try this again without carefully considering the direct deposit source.

I just got this offer in the snail mail with a coupon code, and am considering doing it if I can get them to hone a push transfer from my TD Ameritrade account as a direct deposit.

Are they still only paying .01% interest on this savings accounts, or have the interest rates gone up to at least full percent numbers with the other banks? (My Discover and Citibank savings accounts are both paying more than 3.5% currently).

Thanks, John! I just checked again and so bummed the $600 combined offer hasn’t come back within the last year or two? If I were to take advantage of the personal checking bonus by opening that account, would I be eligible later down the road to take advantage of the savings account bonus when offered?

Additionally, I’m looking to open a joint account with my husband (a checking and savings) along with opening an account for just myself (also checking and savings). My husband is already a Chase member, but I am not.

1.) If I were to open a joint account with him – would we qualify for the bonuses or no because he will be on the account and he is already a banking client?

2.) If I later opened up a checking/savings account for myself, and we DID get the bonus for our joint account previously, I am assuming I would not qualify for a bonus later down the road under just my name?

Thanks for your help – great website with super useful information! 🙂

The “direct deposit” requirement was hard for me to figure out! I tried so many things that did not work: zelle, venmo, bank transfer, xoom transfer, a payment from my business checking account, a real-time transfer, merchant payment, paypal transfer…
What finally worked for me was paying the $25 monthly fee on my Business checking account and sending money (I did not see a minimum) via ACH. It did take 7 business days to show I met the requirement.

Hi. Why did you delete the chase $225 promotion page? The link to this page does not work. I just really wanted to take part in this action. Please tell me where to send the transfer to the chase, so that it counts it as a direct deposit? It’s just that on your page with information about direct deposit, I saw methods that are definitely not relevant anymore. Can you please tell me what will work for sure now? And please sorry for my bad english

Hi. I saw in your article a link to chase 225 page, and decided that it was a link to another your article, and just now I noticed that this is a link to the page of the promotion itself. Sorry. But please tell me why should I send money to the chase so that it counts it as a direct deposit?

Let’s just say it says that you can send via Transferwise. But I know for sure that this demand is no longer working, as in Transferwise p2p. Please tell exactly the current method

They are the only bank I came across who has this issues.

I even went through the trouble report them their faults advertisement, illegal unfair competition practice to CFPB.

Hope more people will report them.

I’m waiting for the $500/$600 offer to come back but also waiting for another Sapphire banking bonus as well.
Will getting the $500/$600 bonus disqualify me for potential future Sapphire bonus? or are they separate products and can get both?

If we “like” (heart) an article, do we get automatic email updates? Or do we have to sign up for all emails? (I just want to follow certain subjects like when Chase brings back the $600 bonus.)

Please advise.

and if we open an account and just pay the 15 and 5 dollar fee…. does that make us eligible for the bonus still, since it’s the alternative to the balance requirements???? because the whole point of this for me is I don’t have 200-300 dollars to put in immediately. I need $600 !

I have been wanting to get into this” free” extra money but I am hesitant… it has to be a downside… what about your credit? Score? Report? Would it look ok to have so many accounts opened and closed in such a short time?!?

There really isn’t a downside to chasing bank bonuses. There’s no effect on your credit score since you’re not getting a loan or credit.

I open 25+ bank accounts in an average year and nothing adverse has happened.
