Everyone could use some extra cash this holiday season. Here’s one way to get your hands on an extra $100 – for free! Turn in your old debit card and/or unused checks from another financial institution to Bethpage by December 31, 2013, and receive $100 cash when signing up for Bethpage’s free checking account, Bethpage Bonus Checking.
“Long Islanders can benefit from Bethpage Bonus Checking – a free checking account with no hidden fees – at all.
