BoA Travel Rewards card coded as a purchase for me earlier this month. Previously I’d set the cash advance limit to the minimum ($200).

Has anyone had success with BBVA’s DD success with Venmo &/or Charles Schwab in 2020

Checking and savings bonuses posted for me and the 2 other people in my household on 2/13. We used a combination of Fidelity, Cap One, Schwab, PayPal, Chase and Wells Fargo for the direct deposits. We will be leaving the accounts open for one year along with $500 in each savings account in order to waive the $15 quarterly savings account fees.

I have had a lot of trouble with BBVA compass bonuses posting in the past (their 2018 bonus required bill pay, and I couldn’t complete it because they blocked my account from being able to make any bill pays, and their customer service is of no help). So, I am pleasantly surprised that this one posted, and was so easy to do. I have already withdrawn the $250 bonus to my linked bank account. Thanks doc!

Etrade posts as a bank transfer. What else works to satisfy direct deposit requirements?

Just signed up. So glad that I checked the recent comments and saw this. Easy $250 bucks. Either there’s no chex or they’re not so sensitive. I’ve signed up for at least 6 accounts over the past 2 months.

Looks like the offer is back again, slightly adjusted, but almost the same.

I recently opened a checking with them for $200 bonus. I wonder if I can get this promo added plus open a savings.

Looks like this new version isn’t available nationwide. Says this account type isn’t available in my state. (TN)

@Brian C – re: new bonus link:
https://www.bbvausa.com/go/specialoffer/mega-blitz.html

“We’re sorry. The account you’re applying for is not available in your state.” – This appears as soon as you select your state, so do that first to save time.

It appears that this requires specifically a “Free Checking account” which according to the BBVA website is only available in
Alabama
Arizona
California
Colorado

New Mexico

I applied successfully from New York. You need to pick the “Online Checking” product.

This is the correct link: https://www.bbvausa.com/go/specialoffer/mega-blitz-national.html
Your link is for the Free Checking, which is restricted to certain states. Adding “-national” to the end of your link shows the Online Checking, which is nationwide. Expires 11/19/19.
