PORTLAND, Maine, Sept. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bank of Maine is proud to offer its Promise Rewards Checking Account customers free debit card usage, free ATM use at any ATM in the US and no monthly fees.  

The bank launched the first-of-its-kind Promise Rewards Checking Account with no minimum balance requirement in June, 2011.  Consumers can sign up online or at one of the bank's 33 branches to earn up to $250 just for becoming a customer.  This account not only carries no cost to a customer, it provides the customer with FIVE CENTS CASH BACK on qualifying transactions, including debit card usage, direct deposits, online bill pay and more.  

"A debit card offers speed and convenience.  We encourage our Promise Checking Account customers to use their card as they always have, without any concern that they will be incurring debit card fees," said Dick Lucas, Senior Executive Vice President of The Bank of Maine.  "With our Promise Rewards Checking account, we demonstrate our loyalty to our customers by paying them for it."
