Which banks offer Checking + Credit card bonus?

I'm a big fan of the Chase Trifecta which gives 10 points for every freedom Transaction then transferred to sapphire it's worth 20% more towards travel.


I heard something about Citi bank and US Bank as well, just trying to figure out what each bank offers


I think I heard Citi checking savings + account = 1000+ points per month

and I think I saw where it said US bank offers more cash back on their rewards card (not much like 0.25 or 0.5 etc)

total credit limits $108,400 Credit scores Ex 728 EQ 738 TU 758

Citi- minimum of 600 thank you points/month if you open their "basic checking" account, along with a savings acct, 1 bill pay/month, 1 durect deposit (or ACH credit)/month & you set up auto transfer for t least $10/month fom your cheking acct o your savings acct. it translates to t least $72/year in gift cards plus they're offering a signup bonus of $100-$300 in gift cards.

If you open a higher tier checking acct you get more points. Plus you get points if you have a mortage, loan, or line of credit with them. The max points you can earn per year from the banking end is around 25,000/$250.

Citi Thank You $13,200 - Chase Freedom $3,100 - AMEX Zync NPSL (init. ability $17.5K) - Citi Forward $7,000 - AMEX BCP $6,000 - USAA Rate Adv $15,000 - USAA World MC $12,000 - Discover More $4,000 - Amex Hilton Honors $4,500 - Amex SPG $2,000 - Barclay's Priceline Rewards $6,400 - Chase Sapphire Pref. $7,500
