U.S. Bank Free Checking Account - featured at Zyra's affiliate website

The U.S. Bank Program offers U.S. Bank Free Checking. This is worth knowing about for sure, and there are other key features to the US Bank Checking Account.

"With over 10 million customers and a presence in 24 states, U.S. Bank is a trusted brand and offers a superior set of financial and banking services".U.S. Bank

Plus, in 2004, the parent company U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB), was quoted as having assets in excess of $189 billion, the 8th largest financial services holding company in the United States: "We operate over 2,243 banking offices and more than 4,425 ATMs in 24 states, and provide a comprehensive line of banking, brokerage, insurance, investment, mortgage, trust and payment services products to consumers, businesses and institutions. U.S. Bancorp is home of the Five Star Service Guarantee, which assures customers of certain key banking benefits and services". Impressive, don't you think?

Plus, another fact about opening a U.S. Bank FREE Checking Account is this: "Because Internet Bill Pay is now FREE*! U.S. Bank is also the only bank that offers our customers the exclusive Checking That Pays® Program. U.S. BankChecking That Pays features a choice of cash, points for merchandise and gift certificates, miles or sweepstakes entries for your U.S. Bank Check Card purchases (non-PIN).

It's at about this point that there was a link to US Bank, and we've been good for business for a time now. But then this strange message came in...

Dear Zyra,

We regret to inform you that the Commission Junction advertiser U.S. Bank "Banking & Credit Card" Program has chosen to expire its affiliation with you effective 30-Jun-2004.

If you would like to locate another advertiser in the network to partner with, login to your Account Manager and visit the Get Links tab.

Best Regards,

Commission Junction

Presumably it's a mistake, as surely US Bank would not want to lose the affiliate. There's nothing to gain by terminating an affiliate relationship. Hopefully this will be sorted out soon and we'll continue to be mutually good for business.

In the meantime, it's been bunged, but customers may still visit US Bank by typing in the URL: http://www.usbank.com This site is Internationalwhich is still there as far as we know. Commission Junction have helpfully suggested an alternative be selected (see Finance), but it would be nice if we could get the US Bank link back again. We get on well with US Bank and have helped with security by warning people to avoid being fooled by bank hoax emails which are fake but pretend to be from the banks! In the meantime, an alternative suggestion could be ING DIRECT in the USA. Trying to be helpful.
