Banking Incentives You Just Might Like just released a report on some sweet incentives offered up by banks for new accounts.  Obviously, it is important to read all of the fine print and make sure that you are comfortable with it.  Never take the incentive at face value.  Also, make sure that you aren’t paying higher fees later that ends up compensating for the incentives.  If you are shopping for a bank, they are worth checking out.
