BJ’s Wholesale Club and Discover Bank are giving BJ’s members a gift card just for opening a bank account. The retailer’s Inner Circle members get a $25 BJ’s Gift Card and Rewards members will receive a $75 BJ’s gift card when they open a qualifying online savings, money market or certificate of deposit account through Discover Bank.
“The BJ’s gift card offer is yet another benefit that people receive as members of BJ’s Wholesale Club,” noted Laurie Lee, specialty business assistant VP at the Westborough, Mass.-based company, which operates 190 clubs and 103 gas stations in 15 eastern states. “I’m always looking for ways to make membership even more valuable through additional services.”
“Discover’s partnership with BJ’s fits naturally because we share the same desire to give customers more value for their money,” added Christina Favilla, president of Riverwoods, Ill.-based Discover Bank, observing that the club’s members would enjoy the bank’s “great savings rates [and] excellent customer service.”
To qualify for the offer, current BJ’s members must open a Discover online savings account with an initial deposit of at least $1,500, or open a Discover CD or money market account with an initial deposit of at least $2,500. All minimum balances must remain in the account for 90 days following the funding date.
