Pulled all of my funds from the checking account on April 6 and when I logged in today, the account was gone. Looks like no need to call to close as it will be done automatically once you zero out the account.

Anyone close their account yet and how did you go about it?

I hit 6 months 3/19/2020. I will be waiting til then. I will be calling to close. I couldn’t find a secure message option and based on how the application process went I doubt email will be sufficient.

Kyle ❤️ will you be transferring all of the money out before calling or have them send you a check?

Read comments on previous bonuses with Fremont that they zero’d out the account and Fremont closed the account automatically.

Hmm I hadn’t seen that. If it happened immediately I might go that route but I’d prefer to make sure the account is being closed rather than hoping they will close it. It would be preferable to me to pull the funds myself rather than waiting on a check.

One said they closed within 24hrs while the other indicated something like 3 weeks (though don’t know if he didn’t look before the 3 weeks and it closed sooner).

I hit 6 months on 3/23/2020. I pulled funds out via ACH from Chase. Transfer completed 3/25 and today 3/26 I called to close the account. The closing process took 4 minutes. as mentioned in a previous comment 852877 I did not receive the bonus and attempted several Transfers in attempt to meet the bonus requirements none of which worked. I didn’t lose money on this deal but it did tie up $2500 for 6 months. Glad to be done with this one.

UPDATE: Account automatically closed in 2 days after I zero’d out the account, didn’t have to call.

It’s official, none of my transfers triggered the bonus and I have some DP’s on what did not work. I pushed $500 into Fremont from the following personal checking accounts without success: Chase, SoFi Money, Varo, Ally, Discover, IncredibleBank, Chime, Union Bank, & Unify FCU. William Charles

So today is technically 30 days since the end of the calendar month when my qualifying direct deposit was made. Still haven’t received the bonus. I even verified with the rep originally that the bonus was attached to my account. I’ll monitor for a few more days and update when it comes in. Anybody get their bonus yet?

Although, at one time, I did withdraw all money which made my balance 0$ and the rep called me to deposit some money in there to avoid an automatic closing of the account. I wonder if that can cause some issues. (I deposit money via Zelle after the call)

I got approved today. Email came too late to call for an account number.

I e-mailed and the banker was able to tell me the account number and successfully opened an account and enrolled in online banking/mobile banking. I’m from LA/OC area.

Finally got a hold of my banker (took three days of leaving messages) and received my account number to setup online access. Almost 3 weeks from applying.
