Remember a few months ago, Boursorama Banque offered 50 euros to its new customers. Today, the first online bank in France has decided to boost customer acquisition with a bonus impossible to refuse: any account opening (free and unconditional) will give you a cash bonus of 150 euros .
Too good to be true ? No, but you will have to open your account between October 20 and 24 as part of the Pink Weekend. The cheapest online bank in France (for 14 years) has more than 4 million customers in France and its success is not ready to stop.
Opening an account
Opening an account in online banking only takes a few minutes, and the procedure is done completely online. It’s barely longer than opening an account in a neo-bank like Revolut or N26. However, there is a big difference with the latter: you can access a range of banking products that is similar to that of your current “real” bank.
If 4 million French people have decided to elect Boursorama as their main bank, it is because it can also replace their historic bank on all products and services: savings, stock market, insurance, loans or current account for example. If necessary, she can even take care of transferring all the products from your current bank to her home, without any administrative costs on your part.
A 3x higher premium
If you have already been looking at the content of the Boursorama Banque formula for a few months, you probably know that the welcome bonus is part of the lot when opening an account. It is the only online bank that has always offered a bonus: Monabanq, Hello bank! or BforBank (and the defunct ING France) are less regular on this part.
Over the year 2022, the average of this premium should vary between 50 and 80 euros. A few weeks ago, however, we saw a first (Pink) 4-day weekend where the online bank rewarded its new customers with a bonus of 150 euros. This is again the case for this long weekend in October, when new customers will have the chance to receive up to 150 euros in a few clicks.
Opening an account
Opening an account with Boursorama Banque is simple: you don’t have to prove a minimum monthly income, you don’t have to have your salary domiciled, and you don’t have to make it your main bank account. So you can open this account and keep it alongside your current bank, like a secondary account. That said, you will quickly realize the competitiveness and comfort of the latter that the desire to change may take you.
In online banking, a formula is chosen by almost all customers: Ultimate. This includes the current account and a card similar to a Visa Premier (it just does not bear the name). It is not only unconditional, but above all it is free. It will just be necessary to use it once a month so that it remains free over time.
Conditions: No income condition – Welcome and Ultim cards
Annual fee: €0 • Initial deposit: €300
Check deposit: ✔ • Cash deposit: ✘
Monthly cost of the card: 0 €
Euro zone withdrawals: Free • Euro zone payments: Free
Foreign currency withdrawals: 1.69% • Foreign currency payments: Free
Online banking is a hit
While French banking continues to grow, online banking is a real solution to save money. Take Boursorama Banque as an example: more than half of its customers have no bank charges. According to an internal study, the total amount of fees deducted would represent less than 8 euros per year and per customer.
So of course, the Pink Weekend welcome bonus is a strong argument for opening an account. But in reality, the savings will be much greater in the long term: when you know that an average French person spends around 215 euros in bank charges per year, it’s a similar amount that you can save every year by choosing Boursorama Banque.
Although Boursorama Banque has been voted “least expensive bank” according to Le Monde for 14 years, it does not neglect the quality of service. It is complete and offers real autonomy to all its customers. It was voted best digital bank in Europe (D-Rating) and has been on the first step of the Customer Relations Podium for 3 years. You can trust him to help you with your finances.
A two-step premium
Some services promise you welcome bonuses that are sometimes impossible to get. If Boursorama Banque is so successful, it is also because it plays the honesty card with its new customers. Picking up that massive $150 bonus is super easy this time around, whatever your situation. It’s here first time that the cash bonus is so accessible.
In detail, there are two steps to validate to receive the full bonus. The online bank will first offer you 70 euros when you have validated your current account. To do this, you must complete the registration form and make a first payment. A second installment of 80 euros will be paid when you order your bank card. This second step is symbolic since the Ultim card is free.
Boursorama Banque’s Pink Weekend never lasts longer than a long weekend. The bank holds a few every year and that’s when it sees a peak in enrollment. The general public has every interest in using this opportunity to maximize their advantages when opening the account. You can even choose to open it now, even if it means using it only later. It’s a great way to butter spinach.
