I got referral bonus today from 2 persons for referring them 3-4 months ago. One I remember was Eric and don’t remember the other. Check your savings account guys! 🙂

Any DPs on getting approved with Chex 13/12? I am in the middle of disputing 4 of those inquiries but I don’t know if they will be removed on time. Planning on applying next month -stats will be the same. Thank you!

WunibaldTax I was approved at 28/12 in May 2022. I average about two per month. I had two within a month, and three in the prior month. Counting Chex only – not counting Hanscom.

It seems they pull Chex again for additional account, is that common? I’ve got a Free checking opened for a month now. But they denied me citing Chex when I applied for Kasasa cash account

Opened an account on 7/28. Funded Prime Shares account with 2k using a Citi Premier. Opened a Free Checking after and was able to fund it with the Premier for another 2k. Had to wait a day to be contacted by a member of the member relations team to get my CU Thrive account opened and set up. I asked them to take 2k from the Prime Shares and put it into my checking and they were able to move $1,975 because $25 has to stay in the Prime Shares. My Premier had it coded as a purchase and on my Citi app it now says congrats you’ve earned 80000 thank you points. I was going to reach the SUB with my tuition in September but there would have been a 2.85% convenience fee so this saved me $112 in fees. That alone made the account worth opening but the high interest is going to be great too. Thanks for sharing this.

Wow. You are able to move more than 500 to the Thrive account?

Nick

No, I wish. It’s in the free checking account and I have it scheduled to put 500 from the checking into the Thrive every 3rd of the month. I have the first 500 in now so I’m going to transfer the rest to my Alliant savings account and then I will just replenish the checking account with 500 at the end of each month.

Account opening portal is fixed. Should be able to open accounts online and fund 2k now.

$2K per account… I recommend opening the Share savings on a separate application from the Checking.

Anytime opening an account that is not under a promo link, I always try to double up.

Thanks. Able to open a Kasasa cash back checking. Wonder whether this bank limits how many accounts to have in total…

Anyone tried maxing out the $2000 cc funding?

Albert

Applied 7/11, 2k funding with CITI AA Platinum.
Got an email from the employee on 7/14. He helped me open the TU Thrive and Free Checking because “Currently we are experiencing technical issues with our online application for existing members, they are unable to apply for new accounts. ”
So I cannot open another Kasasa for another 2k funding right now… Hope they fix this soon and P2 will jump as well.

Hi, did you lowered your cash advance limit on the citi aa?

Albert

Yes, I think mine is 750.

Thank you for the reply. I just called Citi and they also lowered mine to $750, they said that’s the lowest it can be for Citi AA. Anyway, I definitely wanna give this a try. But I think my chex is at 10+/12.

still not able to open checking acct online. I tried login to apply, the Eligibility section spins spins spins… You’d think a few weeks the issues should be fixed 🙁

Declined. Appears chex sensitive.
