Has anyone gotten the bonus yet?

Opened 5/19 through FFA with $150 on my BofA (coded as purchase), I did at least one work DD every month (May, June, July, August) but still no bonus. I’ll SM them since I used a work DD.

Update – here’s their SM:

We apologize for the inconvenience our marketing department has confirmed this promotion is currently only available to new members of the Tehachapi, California branch location.

I’d submit an NCUA or CFPB complaint saying you met reqs and signed up in good faith that they would honor the promotion. The worst they can say is no. They had their chance to get rid of you, but I think they are stuck now. GL

Yeah, I’ll do that. I saved their promotion and no where does it say I need to open this account at a specific location. Their promotion also says if I opened it online, someone will be contacting me for the gift card so online is definitely an option! Will update once I get a response back and I’ll be closing out the account either way.

I’d submit a complaint to the CFPB or NCUA. Just say you met terms for promo and terms did not exclude you. The worst they can say is “no”.

I may be wrong but it seems to be available online as well

The same CU is offering a $250 bonus at the Tulare and North Visalia branch locations.

Submitted OOS application – rejected via email the next day, given the option to come in branch

Submitted application using OOS address and told to come into branch to finalize. Have no plans to do so so will pass. So likely a Chex hit and inquiry sensitive to online opening.

Davis Did they send an email telling you to go in branch? Or did they call?

Davis

Email saying to come into a branch within 30 days because they aren’t able to open it online. I called and asked if there was some phone verification but they said no. I might do this account when I’m back in the bay area but not now.

$150 max cc funding, used BofA card, will update what it codes as. Account was immediately approved, used FFA as the eligibility even though I’m OOS.

tikachu Can you provide a referral?

Davis

Me too. I messaged everyone that follows them on Twitter that had a public profile and only three responded with two maybe open to giving me their referral.

It looks like I need your email address and name for a referral. Please email tikachuchurn@gmail.com for the referral!

Any DPs on hard or soft pull?

I didn’t get any notifications when I applied yesterday so I believe it’s a soft pull.

They have a $50 both parties referral program too. Near the end of the application, it asks if you have a referral code. https://www.valleystrong.com/refer-friend. Can someone refer me?
