Our Verdict

Not useful by itself, but if you recently got the $150/$300 checking promotion it’s worth doing.

pretty small bonus for a lot of work. i suppose they’re looking for ways to stop the tide of cancellations after the actual bonus posts 😀

When I opened the bank account March 2 the agent told me about this offer. So $100 for DD; $50 for debit card usage and now $10 for bill pay which is an easy $10. I appreciate all money.

$100 for DD?

yeah part of the $150 offer that’s been on the best bonus pages. It’s technically a $100 and a $50 bonus

Opened Bank of the west checking account online and they closed it due to a freeze on my Experian. Called in and said they cannot revert decision. I put $500 initial deposit on my Double Cash and transaction posted. It’s been over a month and Bank of the west still have not refund my $500 yet. Just filed CFPB and will not bank with them again.

“Each qualifying Bill Pay transaction must be at least $10 and must be sent to a unique party with a different mailing address from the Bill Pay subscriber”

Regarding the wording ‘unique party’: does that mean i have to have 3 different payees or can i also just pay my same credit card in 3 installments of >$10/each (so just 1 payee but 3 bill-pay transactions)?

Sweet, I know it’s just $10 but hey- that’s 2 more Starbucks for me, for free!

I got the ten dollars today! At the same time as my bonus. I was told end of June, 06/16 was a nice surprise.

Credited by March 30, 2018. That would suck.

Offer is now only available to a new consumer checking account opened between July 8, 2017 and September 29, 2017.

Bill Pay $10 offer popped up upon logging out. Three bill pays between July 8 to December 31st.

CORRECTION
the Bill Pay subscriber must complete a minimum of three (3) qualifying transactions from the new consumer checking account between July 8, 2017 and December 29, 2017
