Several Bask Savings Account Bonuses End June 30

The following bonus mileage offer programs will expire on June 30th, 2020 – it’s a great time to sign up for a no fee Bask Savings Account before that happens.

  • Account Opening Bonus: 5000 AAdvantage miles for new customers that open an account by June 30 and maintain a minimum daily account balance of $5,000 for ninety consecutive days during the first 120 days the account is open.

  • Feedback Bonus: This one is easy, open the no fee account and receive 1000 AAdvantage miles and either use the Bask Bank online banking portal or the Bask Bank mobile app to provide feedback using the Give Feedback feature by June 30, 2020.

  • Balance Bonus: Up to 10,000 bonus miles on top of regular earning for a $25,000 balance; up to 20,000 bonus miles on top of regular earning for maintaining a $50,000 balance; up to 40,000 bonus miles on top of regular earning for maintaining a $100,000 balance. Half the miles are awarded after 180 days, and the second half after a second 180 days.

This is my referral link, if you aren’t a current customer you might use it when signing up though of course once you’re a customer you want to give your own link to friends and family to use.

It’s most valuable to refer folks to open an account this month, while these current bonus offers are available as well.

  1. I just signed up. You should get the referral. I was debating between 50k or 100k, but the initial funding limit was only 50k so I guess I’ll wait around for 76,000 miles. I still have about 700k AA miles that I don’t know what to do with now.
