Sound’s good, right? I would love a Fitbit. But to have to open a checking account AND a savings account AND sign up for online banking? Are you kidding me? That sounds like a lot of hoops for a $100 bracelet.
Here’s what I think: There are many banks with $200 to $400 promotions for opening new accounts. Do that. Take $100 and buy a Fitbit for yourself. Enjoy the extra $100 to $300.
