Free $50 Grocery Gift Card from TCF + More

I have been seeing incentives to open a free checking account at TCF when I'm shopping at my local Cub Foods for awhile now. Today I decided to check it out.

In 9 minutes (yep, I timed it since I had my three year old with me) I had a new free checking account and a $50 Cub Foods gift card in my hand.

The other bonus? I get another $25 for every friend I refer. The banker told me a friend could also be my husband. So, after I refer my husband to sign up, he will get $50 and I'll get another $25.

That's $125 of FREE MONEY for our family!

Here's what I found about this offer while I was there:

- Must deposit $25 at the time of sign-up
- No minimum balance required (you could take the $25 out the next day, they said)
- Must keep the account open for 6 months
- You get a check card and free checks
- You get the $50 gift card immediately (at least at the bank inside Cub)
- Available to people without a TCF checking account in the past 90 days

I went to TCF Bank online and found that this offer is available online as well as at TCF Bank locations. Go HERE to check it out!
