I don’t see the option to fund with CC anymore

Chase didn’t work for the extra $50

Schwab Brokerage is what got me the initial $150. Probably could have used that one again, but thought the system might not have picked it up the second time around.

FWIW, P2 had to contact them to get the $50 Direct Deposit bonus, using real (P1’s) DD’s. P2 sent an SM Monday night (8/1), and the bonus posted Tuesday night (8/2) after they responded.

P1 never received the targeted $50 emails, so I am not going to bother contacting them. I did put a couple of random fake DD’s on the account to see if what would happen. I got my answer: NOTHING.

thank you for this, going to send them a message for P1 and P2

Closed account with SM. They made ACH deposit to an external bank instead of mailing the small remaining balances.

This looks like I took more chances than I should have, luckily it paid out. Serve reloads count as debits for spend and bonus. No first 30 days for Serve or Shopify, no 61-90 for Brexm and a few hit right before the 90th day.

Schwab DD didn’t work for me on the extra $50.

zeer0 Why, did you contact them? You are jumping the gun… the $50 bonus is not due until the end of next month.

“Bonus will be deposited into your checking account by July 31, 2022, after all qualifying criteria has been met.”

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek no I didn’t contact them, I just assumed so based on the reminder email they sent to me. But you’re probably right, I didn’t realize it was 7/31.

Also lol at my account being a different name on phone, oops.

I also received the reminder email even though I had a legit work DD hit my account end of May. Also haven’t received the $50 yet

Got an email on 6/1, subject “Don’t Miss Out on $50!”:

“Don’t miss out on the opportunity to earn a $50 bonus* when you move your direct deposit of $500 or more to your Affinity Cash Back Debit account by June 30!

*To receive the $50 bonus, you must establish a qualifying direct deposit of $500 or more by June 30, 2022, to your Affinity Cash Back Debit account ending in 4754 . A qualifying direct deposit is an automatic electronic deposit known as an ACH (Automated Clearing House) of your paycheck, Social Security, pension, or other recurring income in the amount of $500 or more. Multiple deposits totaling $500 do not qualify. External and internal transfers, mobile deposits, cash or check deposits and person-to-person payments such as Zelle®, do not qualify as a direct deposit. Bonus will be deposited into your checking account by July 31, 2022, after all qualifying criteria has been met. Offer excludes Business checking, Teen Checking and Revolution Spend accounts. Bonus may be reported as taxable income and may be reported on an IRS 1099 Form, if applicable. Limit of one bonus per person. Additional exclusions may apply. Offer subject to change without notice.”

Since Ally worked for me to get the original $150 bonus, I set up a biweekly recurring transfer of $510 from my Ally account to my Affinity Cash Back Debit account. Not a huge bonus, but seems like it’ll work based on the earlier success of Ally. I’ll report back with any results.
