I’ve been trying to open a couple of these accounts. It does happen that I have two kids of appropriate ages and some cash on their hands that I want to introduce them to banking (and banking bonuses). The teaching moment failed bad when the site kept erroring out, and when I dragged the kids in a branch they had no power to fix it at all. I tried this through my log in, my wife’s, using multiple browsers, app, and mobile browser, to no avail.

Apparently this is a known system glitch that neither the CPC banker nor the website support rep at the call center was able to do anything about. Lame. Curious how some of you successfully opened yours. My CPC person offered to honor the $25 bonus if I open joint savings accounts with the kids. That will accomplish the teaching goal, I suppose. Though it pains me to think about how these accounts will lock me out of future saving account churning opportunities forever…

how do you transfer the $25 from the kids acccount to my main chase checking account?

Would be funny when Chase shuts down people for making fake kids

Can you sign up kids for other bank bonuses?

Or just these kids accounts?

Obviously not ccards which require 18+.

Who opened an account for their pets/fictitious children successfully and did it ask you to provide a SSN?

No SSN required for children.

Too bad the offer expires in less than 9 months, otherwise I’d be looking for P2…

It’s for kids ages 6-17. You had to do it 6 years ago. 😁

The fine print doesn’t say people need a verifiably real child to do this. Pretty sure churners will take advantage somehow.

Does my pet qualify as a child? Would they check ssn…

They don’t check SSN. In fact, this is not a custodial account. It doesn’t become a real checking account even after kids turn 18.
