Chase Bank is offering a new bank promotion where you can get up to 25,000 Continental Airlines bonus miles when you open a new account at Chase. The requirements of the promotion aren’t too difficult to satisfy, if you’re in the market for a new checking account and debit card. This offer expires June 30th, 2010.
Here are the requirements:
- To earn the first 10,000 bonus OnePass miles, you need to open a Chase Checking account with at least $100 and make five debit card purchases or setup a direct deposit. The debit card purchases must be made within 60 days. The direct deposit must be repeating like a payroll, Social Security, or other government benefits payment.
- To earn the next 15,000 in Continental OnePass bonus miles, you need to get a Chase Continental Airlines Preferred Debit Card ($65 annual fee) and make a “qualifying purchase,” which is defined as a non-PIN purchase.

Here is some fine print:
Offer valid through June 30, 2010. To qualify for the reward you must open a new Chase CheckingSM account with a $100 minimum opening deposit of new money (money not currently held by Chase or its affiliates). Also, to qualify for the first 10,000 bonus miles you must make 5 debit card purchases with any Chase debit card linked or used to access the new account or initiate a repeating direct deposit such as payroll, Social Security or other government benefits. The 5 debit card purchases or first direct deposit must be completed within 60 days of account opening to earn the bonus miles. Initial 10,000 bonus miles will be deposited in your OnePass® account 6-10 weeks after the 5 debit card purchases or initial direct deposit has posted to the new account. This bonus mile offer is not available to customers with an existing Chase checking account. Limit one personal checking account-related reward per customer, per calendar year. Limit one 10,000 bonus miles per checking account. Offer not available on account conversions or in combination with any other offer. Customers are still eligible for the first 10,000 miles even if they do not get the Chase Continental Airlines Preferred Debit Card. Account is subject to approval.
