PSA: Funding is VISA and MasterCard only.
The funding page only accepts 16-digit cc number and 3-digit CID, and also shows this warning when I added a 0 in the back and clicked done. https://imgur.com/g0zNZsU

Thank you. Just to clarify…I still need to be in the service area, correct? Otherwise this referral is useless? If I don’t live in the footprint and have no friends/relatives who are members…too bad for me?

Yeah, they don’t accept out of footprint, sadly

Yes, per the eligibility requirements above: must work in / resident of Alameda, Contra Costa, Kings, San Joaquin, Solano or Stanislaus Counties CA, or have family member with account there. Unfortunately, I will not say you are my family member.

Thanks man! Could you give me your member number? I need it to establish eligibility as I don’t live or work in any of the targeted counties

Actually its asking for your account number. I can establish eligibility with that if I claim I am an immediate family member of yours. Thanks again man!

I’ll pass on that. Someone else can do that.

I see a lot of folks asking about referrals — note this $200 offer has this exclusionary note: “Current 1st United members do not qualify for the $200 incentive. ”

I would advise not trying to open membership/savings with a referral bonus ($50), only to be ineligible for the $200 checking bonus. The application only has one field for entering a code, not both the referral and the SWEET code.

Can we churn if we did the earlier bonus this year? I see no language about that

I’m OOS so the only way I can get in is via referral. However it is only $50/$50 for each, am I missing something?

Don’t think you can get in even with referral. Comments below say “Don’t bother if you’re not in the area. Just a waste of a Chex inquiry…”

My understanding is that you open the savings account with the referral to get in, and then you open the checking account once you are approved to be a member with the promo code above for the $200.

Hey Andy , thanks for sending me the link with your referral code.
I clicked on the link within the email (under step 1) to open the account online, which takes me to the banks application page asking for my eligibility.
Sadly there is no “friend” option there.
You can only select to either live in a narrow geographic region or be an immediate family member of someone (and then name them and further select the exact relationship).
And I don’t know you well enough to even select ‘domestic partner’… 😉

If you know of a way to get around this, let me know (here or via email) and I gladly use your link to sign up!

No, I don’t think you are. Don’t forget you also have to commit fraud to get accepted (assuming you aren’t really related to the person referring you).

They allow friends and non-related people according to terms on refer a friend page.

“If you love your checking account, your mortgage loan or even our people – now’s the perfect time to tell a friend! Better yet, when your friend, family or co-worker opens a membership with a qualifying account, you’ll both receive $50. Yep, that’s right, we’re paying you to share the 1st United love!”

However I’ll still watch and wait with a 6-foot stick. I see a lot of people trying to get in but not a word after that. Either they are playing hush hush or it’s not actually a success. I think it’s the earlier tho.

ieatdogfood I read this too on the official referral page https://www.1stunitedcu.org/referafriend that’s what got me to ask for a referral link earlier.

Checking the referral email someone sent me, it shows the unique code to be entered during application, but clicking the email link to United1st application page the first step is to verify your eligibility and there is no ‘friend’ option. Only work in specific counties or be an immediate family member of someone (and then a sub-field selecting the exact relation to that person).

So yeah, not sure how people got it to work in previous months… 🙁

“Domestic partner” via Tinder and social distancing.
