Does your bank give out 24-karat gold pigs? Huh? Does it? Well, the Chase at 180 Canal Street in Chinatown does. Er, did—too bad this offer has since expired. The deal was: open and deposit $50,000 in a savings account, receive a 24k gold pig. The reps at the branch said they might bring the pigs back as rewards for something else come the Chinese New Year, so do check back.
