The bonus for opening account and using debit card posted. But the bonus for DD did not post (Did an actual DD). When I contacted Community First they said that it was because I was supposed to maintain 500$ average balance! Don’t remember seeing that in any fine print. Nor is it listed here. Might need to add it if this is legit criteria.
I used CHK2020. Anyone have screen shot of the offer? Thanks!

Oh dear. I saved it and looked in the fine print at the bottom and unfortunately it does say the following:

“2$125 for establishing a Direct Deposit and maintaining an average monthly checking balance of at least $500 by 1/31/2021 ($125 will be credited on or around 2/5/2021. Must be enrolled in the Save My Change Program to receive $125 Direct Deposit incentive)”

That’ll teach us to read more carefully. 🙁

Thanks for the info. I did not save the original offer. The first bonus I lost 🙁 I usually just look at the Fine Print in this site. Has worked every time. I guess this is one case, where fine print in post was not updated. But I guess I learnt a lesson, read fine-print in site too.

Same here. I usually just read Fine Print here. Not usually when I click through. Lesson learnt. This explains why I lost this bonus before with them, too. I probably did the same thing but didn’t know why. At least now I know, but it’s nonetheless annoying. 🙁

Been around 8 weeks opening account. Got the 25$ bonus almost immediately. But the 125$ bonus for DD hasn’t yet yet. Is this a common experience or should I call customer service?

Data Point: Opened fall 2019. Online app worked just gave the promo code on the last page under other comments, uploaded ID and everything. Waited almost a month and after thinking they lost my application somewhere on the interwebs a nice lady called and I had to talk to her a couple of times to verify promo code and the person referring me, etc, which was kinda annoying.

CC funding didn’t work. Had to use a debit card for $25 initial funding. WF worked, coded as DDA TO DDA ID. First DD posted on Friday bonus posted to account on Monday, I think that’s the fastest any bonus has ever posted for me.

Forgot to add, Soft pull on Experian, has to be Ex I asked to pull a different one and they said no. I had freeze, so something else I had to talk to the lady about to confirm freeze was lifted.

Attempted to open online but there is no option for CHK2019 as the promo. I called and they said to apply and then call in and they can correct the promo code.

Front line CSR, so take it with a grain of salt….

Will try and update

There is another CU with similar name in Florida called “Community Credit Union of Florida”. Be careful with it as it does a HP. Unfortunately, I went into the branch to applied and got a HP on my credit report! Grrr
