CIBC offering free Amazon Prime with new account

CIBC is currently offering a free 1-year membership to Amazon Prime when you open a new CIBC Smart chequing account.

To qualify for the offer, you’ll have 3 months after signing up, to complete a direct deposit or two pre-authorized debits within the same month. Offer ends December 28, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. (ET).

Amazon Prime membership gets you free two-day shipping, Prime Video, unlimited music streaming and unlimited photo storage.

I am personally neither a CIBC customer nor do I intend to switch banks. This free offer should not be your sole motivating factor when opening a new account. It is a nice plus to consider however, if you are already currently looking for a new bank – please conduct your own research as to whether CIBC and this specific account meets your personal banking needs.

Value of the Prime offer is $79.
