I’ve mentioned this before, but I don’t normally write about banking and credit cards offers for two reasons:
1. With all the limited time offers, targeted offers, and various cards available, they’re too hard to for me to track.
2. I’ve been earning AAdvantage Miles as a Citibank and Citicard customer for a long time, but other than that and the fact that I am a happy customer, I’m not really qualified to make any kind of meaningful analysis or evaluate the value of of any particular credit card or banking offer. For that kind of info, there are much better resources like Rick Ingersoll at Frugal Travel Guy and Daraius Dubash over at Million Mile Secrets (to name just a few).
But, once in a while a banking account or credit card offer comes along that’s straight forward enough that even I can write about it. Like this one:
All you have to do to earn AAdvantage miles at BankDirect is open one of our Mileage products — Mileage Checking Accounts, Mileage MMAs and Mileage CDs. And you can earn even more AAdvantage miles by using other BankDirect services related to your Mileage account – like payroll direct deposit and bill pay. An AAdvantage member who banks with BankDirect could easily earn 10,000 AAdvantage miles a year with a Mileage Checking Account and could even earn 50,000 miles with the purchase of a single Mileage CD.
New Account Offer:
Earn 1,000 miles for each new Mileage Checking Account or Mileage Money Market Account opened. Additionally, earn 1,000 miles for every $100,000 in initial deposit, up to $500,000, per household.
Earn 10,000 miles for establishing full payroll direct deposit from your employer into a Mileage Checking Account.
Earn 5,000 miles for using BankDirect’s bill pay service.
Earn 5,000 miles for using your BankDirect Visa CheckCard.
Earn 1,000 miles for referring a friend when they open a Mileage Checking account.

I’m not a customer but I’m seriously considering opening an account, if you’re a BankDirect customer, or have an opinion about this offer, please share it with a comment.
