I have not yet got the bonus yet. Did anyone else in the same boat? Last time i checked they said they will deposit right around six month. I had opened it on Oct 2015.

I got my $150 bonus on 2/29. Left $50 on the table by missing the detail (on my offer) that to get the second tier $50, you need to get online access, sign up for bill pay (but no need to pay a bill) and activate debit card (but no debit card requirements). I missed the last point… I didn’t activate a debit card. Note to self: read carefully every requirement.

I have had my money in the account almost 6 months and no bonus has posted. I will update as my full 6 month period is 12/30/15. I opened account and left 2,500 in there and registered bill pay.

Hi Matthew. Your offer is perhaps a slightly different, earlier version of the one I’m doing. Mine has promo code “switch” and expired 12/31. I applied in branch on 12/21. This offer states in order to receive the $150 (of the total $250 bonus) you must maintain a minimum average daily balance of $2,500 during the first 6 months of account opening OR establish direct deposit(s) totaling $750 or more monthly for the first 6 months. It says the bonus will post 30 days AFTER THAT. So MY bonus won’t post for SEVEN months. You say you’ve waited “almost 6 months”. Perhaps your offer is similar???

Has any one ever gotten a bonus from FCB. I see no reports.

Probably time to remove this one from the Big List. I had my hopes up until the very end.

I was able to confirm from at the branch level that account openings will be through ChexSystems. So would that be a soft pull or a hard pull?

Requirements remained the same, but now their offer on their website reads EXPIRATION DATE: Sep 30, 2015. I also noticed that the $150 for opening the checking acct is applied within 30 days of meeting the requirements, but the other $50 for setting up online banking, bill pay and a free debit card is not applied till 30 days after the 6 months qualifying event.
Thank you for finding this offer, If I decide to go for it, I’ll post whether it was a hard pull or not.

Hmm looks like the “Direct link to offer” has been pulled…which makes me wonder if the actual offer is pulled as well?

Any more info on this? Thanks.

Is it possible to fund with a credit card?
