Update: Had a chat with a live agent, and this is what she said. “Great! I see you have already done the basics, and you have gotten a direct deposit.
Based on the information, I am seeing that you are eligible to receive the bonus as long as your account stays in good standing. Bonuses will be paid no later than January 15, 2024”
So it seems the bonus may not payout until next year…..Really wishing I waited and did the $200 one instead.

I received my $100 bonus for using a referral from this thread and completing fake ‘DD’. Here is my detailed data point.

8/11 Opened with a referral from Peek
8/23 Funded account
8/25 Real DD $231 from employer
9/7 Bonus Payment of $100

Bummer I did this before the $200 was known about, but at least another reader got something as well

Peek

Yeah sorry Josh . Had I known the $200 was coming I wouldn’t have recommended anyone use my link. This is the problem with bank bonuses, if you wait you might get more, but you also could get nothing. Thanks for using my link.

All good Peek! Thanks for sharing it on your website when it first came about.

where are you guys finding your Ally referral link to send?

It was a targeted promo. If you didn’t receive an email from Ally, it means that you weren’t targeted.

For anyone else running this promo before the $200 one came out, my real DD hit my account Today. It coded as “Company Name Dir Dep~ Future Amount: 501~Tran: DDIR”

I opened an account using the $100 referral a few days before the current $200 promo came out. Chatted with Ally CS, they were not able to upgrade to the $200 code

How much are people direct depositing to trigger the bonus? I direct deposited $251 so I hope that’s enough.

I signed in today and just now got a message at the top of my screen saying this: “There’s a $100 bonus waiting for you. Finish the referral sign up steps to qualify and get your reward. Check your email to learn more.” I’ve pushed from Wise and Revolut and SoFi so I’m assuming those did not work. For your question: I don’t believe there’s a minimum. Anyway, I hope this helps.

Thanks to the two of you who used my Ally referral link! I received $100 today which means whatever DD the two of you used, they worked. (Sorry you signed up before Ally announced their $200 checking bonus offer.)

Correcting myself after reading the terms of the referral program. I received the reward because the referees had funded their accounts, not necessarily completed their DDs.

If any referee has already received your $100 reward with a “faked” DD, please share what you used on the $200 checking bonus page.

There is a new standard $200 signup bonus now, too. Looks possible to stack with a referral.

Use code GET200.

PS: I wish I waited before jumping on a referral :'(

The T&Cs of each offer have language that seems to not only prohibit stacking the offers, but to make anyone who does either offer ineligible for any checking OR savings offer from Ally through the end of 2024. From the checking offer (the referral offer has language that is basically the same, but doesn’t call out that you’ll get the first bonus you qualify for):

By participating in this offer, we reserve the right to consider you ineligible for other offers that involve
opening an Ally Bank Spending Account and/or Savings Account, and/or other offers that involve
establishing direct deposit payments, that Ally Bank may have in market, both present day or in the future through December 31, 2024. If you participate in more than one offer at the same time, the first offer for which you meet the requirements will be the one that we fulfill.

Thanks for the heads up on that I was planning on opening the checking offer while I’m working on the savings. Guess I’ll have to wait.
