> Credit card funding: Can fund up to $500 with a credit card
Actually, no limit was mentioned. I funded it with $1000 by BofA Cash Rewards CC. The transaction was set as “Purchase”, 3% cash back on Online Shopping triggered.

Can someone that applied now or in the past let me know the email address that sends the approval or denial email? The reason I ask is I found this old comment I posted but when I search for “Firstrust” in my email nothing comes up.

Please be aware that points redemption are done through third party. If you look to redeem those points is not easy through that third party. Also the selection of gift cards available for redemption on that third party website is very small. I dont think it is a good deal at all.

I agree. That has to be the worst selection of gc I’ve ever seen. I was going to call Firstrust to find out if I need to be in their footprint to apply but now won’t even bother. Thanks Vlad.

They don’t define one in their terms… I just closed one last week with them. Last year i was told i couldn’t apply online, had to go in branch. Only time that’s happened in 25+ bonuses over 2 years. I’ll wait a year then try them again.

Weird. I was able to open this online last year (the one with a cash bonus). They were a PIA tho after, took forever to actually get a working PIN for the debit, and that DID require me to go in several times.

Do you live near a branch? When I applied over a year ago I was told I was denied because I didn’t live near a branch.

Anyone done this bank before? How long does it take for the bonus to post? Thinking of opening with the Premier and after bonus downgrading which would mean leaving 5K in there for like 3 to 4 months to be safe. 200 earning on 5K for 4 months is good at this time so long as it is possible to downgrade and leave 500 in there for the remaining 98 to 9 months.

Does anyone else see “Make a purchase of $100 or more” on the website? Just applied and waiting to see if I am approved.
