100 EUR REWE shopping voucher for opening a Commerzbank account
After the summer deal (100 EUR bonus for opening a Commerzbank account), Commerzbank has now a new deal: Open a bank account and get a 100 EUR REWE shopping voucher. You can redeem this shopping voucher at every REWE supermarket in Germany. Here are the conditions that you have to meet in order to get the shopping voucher:
- You have not had a bank account at Commerzbank for the last 12 months
- You have to make at least five transactions per month with a value of at least 25 EUR in the first three months upon account opening (e.g. pay your rent, bills, in the supermarket, etc.)
- You have to agree to receive news from Commerzbank via e-mail (do not unsubscribe within the first three months upon account opening – after the first three months you can of course unsubscribe)
This deal is only valid until November 11th, 2018.
Here some more details about the Commerzbank account
The Commerzbank is probably the most popular bank account amongst foreigners living in Germany. Why that? Well there are two big advantages with Commerzbank. Firstly, they are a renowned traditional bank with a lot of branch offices in Germany, even in smaller towns. So if you need personal advice just go to one of their offices where you can also often find English-speaking staff. The second advantage is the fact that their online banking portal is also available in English. This makes it the perfect bank account for expats or exchange students living in Germany.
