Anyone have the terms for the bonus back in Nov 2022? What was the expiration date?

It appears that a new bank bonus post on this website has been created for the current Chartway offer, which differs in several key ways from the expired one that is described on this page:

Just some info —
I clicked the “direct link to offer” link above (which goes to “”) and got this warning from my browser/privacy setup:
“Your connection isn’t private. Attackers might be trying to steal your information from (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID”.
Tonight I have clicked on about 20 other bank bonus offer “direct links” (from this site and from two other “bank bonus list” sites), and this is the first time I’ve received such a warning from my browser/privacy setup.
This makes me wonder if what the Chartway rep said on video chat to commenter “Mountain Mike” (his post is 2 posts down from mine) might be correct… quote: “He said this promo offer was from a scam artist and was never theirs.”
The folks at might want to double-check with Chartway to make sure this bonus offer (and the “direct link”) is authentic.

Nothing nefarious. Their website certificate isn’t configured properly. Go to and you’ll see a $200 offer right on the front page.

Okay, thank you for explaining that to me!

I think the consensus was back in Sept already that the referral program had been neutered to $50, and is now completely dead.

Regardless, DoC should update the page or start a new one for the $200 promo mentioned.  William Charles  Chuck

The rumor on the streets is that you need to have no more than 3 Chex inquiries in the last 12 months to get approved. I cannot confirm or deny it.

The only Chex talked about on the mean streets near me is the “Mix”. hohoho

“Gadget – Bank Bonus Geek”, I have just seen that they have newly created an entry on this website for the current Chartway bonus — it is here:

Approved at lol/24. Didn’t think I had a chance but gave it a shot! $1500 credit card funding went through with Chase FU.

I joined in September, and have gotten the run around for two months. Always needing more documents from me to open the account; I’ve never received a debit card from them. Their latest excuse is that their debit cards are “backordered” and they can’t give me a date for when it will ship. When on a video chat with their rep, I brought my worry that the 90 day promo period will expire. He said this promo offer was from a scam artist and was never theirs. I pointed out the URL is, which is theirs, and he had no answer other than his manager said it was a scam. I see another poster is also having difficulty getting them to honor their promo. The only scam here is Chartway Credit Union. This credit union should be blacklisted from this site.

Mountain Mike, see my comment on this page which I wrote tonight (#1502724) which might lend credence to what the Chartway rep said to you in your video chat with him.

There is a new offer for $200. Terms below:

Will update with how $1500 credit card funding on CIU goes. not instantly pending so not a great sign there.

Thanks for sharing! I just went through the process to open an account. My sort-of-instant-approval-email was worded:

“Great News – we’ve approved your application! So that you know, this approval is contingent on a final review by our team. To ensure we have all the information needed, a team member will reach out to you within one business day.”

The process was pretty easy. I’m in footprint (FL). I selected the Cash Back Checking and did $1500 CC funding with BoA Unlimited Cash Rewards, will report back on how that goes. I am probably 0/90 on Chex (but more like 10 in last 12 months), so not sure how that reflects on their sensitivity.

Just FYI for those of you doing it for MSR, the credit card has to be in the name of the person applying for the account.
