There appears to no longer be a need to email someone for their referral info.

They’ve created personalized links.

Here’s mine:

The credit card funding is 600 per acct, so 600 for membership savings and additional 600 for checking. One can also open additional savings acct for 250 max, and Money Market (min balance $2k else $15 fee) for 2k max.
Not very high amounts, and no Amex, but it’s one of the few bank funding (in addition to Star One) that has worked for US Bank cards. (mine was USB Biz Cash)

Did you have to do it over the phone?

No, you can only do it when you initiate the bank account opening online. Any CC funding through phone or branch almost always don’t work.

They must have changed it. I recall it was $600 max before, I had $300 go in to checking and $300 into savings.

If seeking a referral, email me at TJGuitar85@gmail.com

I opened an account online and then I called the main number to add the referrer info (from one of the other commenters) and was placed on forever hold.

You are apparently supposed to call the new member department directly rather than the main contact number (which was mentioned in one of the other comments). The new member department is at 602 433 5626

E-mail me and I will provide my referral information.

Bank of America Premium coded as a purchase. I also did 30 $0.50 Amazon reloads.

If you are looking for a referral, email me at dankirk0@gmail.com. 30 Amazon $0.50 reloads for the transactions and real work DD. My MSR card at the time was US Bank Leverage and did not go through for CC funding. I assume it attempted a cash advance which I have disabled.

That’s really interesting. It was one of the few banks where US Bank Biz Cash Rewards worked for cash advance. Cash advance was not disabled, however.

Credit Card funding up to $600. I used my Double Cash card. Referral, send me an email to markzeta@live.com

Only open to a few AZ areas:

To join our credit union, you would need to meet one of the following requirements:
Live, work, attend school or worship in Maricopa, Gila or Pinal county.
Have an immediate family member who lives, works, attends school or worships in Maricopa, Gila or Pinal county.
Have an immediate family member who is an existing Desert Financial member.

Plus, you’re supposed to present the referral form when you open the account. Not sure if that can be done online?

“Once the account is opened, please reach out to us at 602-433-7000 or via Chat so we can place a note on the account. We need the name and phone number of the member that referred you.” – From their twitter message to me

And those kind of geo requirements are easy to meet. I live in Cochise County, SE corner of the state, but if pressed I can say I attend the Xxxx church in Casa Grande, I think I went to one once . . . or maybe it was a Church’s Chicken, I forget . . ..
