Just a data point, if you really don’t like what this bank stands for (like myself), I have been opening & closing accounts to MS $500 at a time when I get new credit cards. Obviously you should do this carefully and not too quickly. I’ve probably only done 3-4 accounts over the past year.

6/23: opened account with $500 from SWA Premier CC(posted as a purchase)
6/26 opened savings account with $500 from CSP card (posted as a purchase)
7/29 charged partial fee for checking account, about $4 net after offset credit
8/05 Payroll DD finally hits account
8/29 $150 “bonus” in account, no notation in account activity, balance just $150 higher than before.
Not the easiest bonus, but they add up!

I’m being thrown for a loop by Amalgamated – I have previously ranted baove about the bonus not posting due to my DD not being recurring after a phone call with a rep. I had all but given up and written it off. I decided to chat with a rep online and now she says that my account does not have the bonus!!! What ridiculousness? I believe i followed all the steps but something’s fishy here (she may well be right).

I haven’t seen any DP of the bonus not posting especially after employer DD so maybe my account does not have the bonus indeed but i doubt that (no way of confirming without screenshots). Will probably try to call again and see if i get a 3rd opinion. After that I might just close the account

Opened my account on 6/30 and still no debit card. Called twice and apparently you have to call and ask for one, it’s not automatically sent. WTH? Anyway, I’ve completed a few $500 DD, but have no way to verify or access the money yet, which is super annoying. Hoping to get the card this week and then hunt down my bonus if it hasn’t posted yet.

Thanks Doc!!

08/01 – Bonus – New Account Promo… 150.00
07/14 – ALLY BANK/P2P 501.00
07/07 – CAPITAL ONE N.A./CAPITALO… 500.00
6/30 – Initial Deposit 500.00 – funded with One vanilla master card

7/15 – chat with rep to see if the account opened with checking bonus. msg from chat “Our records indicate you established a Convenience Plus Checking Account with the promotion for $150. We do see that you have established an electronic deposit of $500. and you do meet the requirements for the promotion. Please be advised it takes some time to receive the bonus which is currently in process”

I guess any ACH should trigger the bonus if the chat rep message is true.
