Hi anyone know what to do now that BBVA is moving to PNC in 3 days? Do I need to do anything? Do i still have to wait a year? I got my bonus on March, opened account in February

Good question–I’m curious as well. I hope the BBVA bonus time doesn’t count towards future PNC bonuses.

I’m going to close my account even though I got the bonus in March too. I signed up for BBVA, not PNC is my justification.

8/10: Called to close checking and savings accounts. The rep mentioned it takes two business days to process the request then an additional 30 days to close. The 30-day window is to ensure no transactions post.

9/13: Called again to verify my accounts were closed since I can still see them on the dashboard. The checking account closed successfully as of 8/11. My online statement shows a closing statement date of 8/11. My savings account was still open for some reason. The last transaction posted on 8/3 so it should have been closed with the checking account. My online statement shows a closing statement date of 8/31, similar to previous months’ statements closing as of month-end. The new rep said it will take 24-48 hours to close. I will call back on 9/16 to confirm and provide an update.

9/14: Received an email stating my Savings account was removed from online and mobile baking access. I received similar emails on 8/11 about my Checking account and associated Debit card. I’m assuming the Savings account closed successfully now, but I will wait for my statement to generate to make sure 9/13 is the statement close date.

Seems it is no longer an option to close account through chat. Chat is available but its a bot tree and it directs you to call if it isn’t one of the few options it can handle.

I have the same question. I read the offer again to see if it says when the bonus will be deposited. The $200 for the checking acc was deposit very fast.

I was just told that it would be by Aug 31. The rep was surprised I received my checking bonus so quickly

Luke

Thanks for the info! Quite the wait until Aug 31…
I guess I will just leave around $1000 in savings and move anything else out of that account.

Even though I was just told by the rep that it would be by Aug 31, I noticed my $50 just posted . I made $1100 deposit on June 30.

William Charles regarding “Early Account Termination Fee – Account needs to be kept open for one year or bonus is forfeit”, since BBVA is merging into PNC, I called BBVA and said that I did not want to have my account merged into PNC and asked to close my checking and savings accounts. The rep said that as long as the accounts both had a $0 balance, the process would be quick and easy. I closed my account ~4 months after opening the account and the rep did not mention anything about an early account termination fee.

Here is a timeline of events:

* 2/1 – applied for the account online
* 2/4 – BBVA requested verification documents and I uploaded the documents
* 2/10 – called BBVA to inquire about the status of the account and was told the team that handles the verification documents was behind schedule
* 2/18 – checking and savings accounts finally opened
* 2/26 – $500 direct deposit posted to checking account
* 3/9 – $200 checking account bonus received
* 4/30 – kept $1,000 balance in savings account through 4/30
* 5/4 – $50 savings account bonus received
* 6/23 – called to close checking and savings account

They didn’t clawback your bonus?

Grant

Nope, my account had a $0 balance and the rep didn’t mention anything about the bonus being taken back.
