Just got the bonus today 4/03/23


I hit it from Chase checking, Discover savings, Charles Schawb brokage, and capital one checking, so not sure which one triggered it but grateful it worked. Opened the account 12/19 /22 and pushed every month from all four accounts.

Has anyone ever received two bonus’ for one account? I got the one above on 4/03/23 and then it deposited another $500 in my account with the same title on 4/28/23. I am shocked and feel very fortunate for this.

Received the $500 bonus today (2/28) as well. A mix of real and Chase pushes in September, October, and November.

Just got $500 bonus. Opened account end of August 2022 and did $10k Chase pushes every month starting in October 2022, last one in February 2023. Will now just do $5k Chase pushes till I get around to closing it.

Anyone get their bonus? I opened in August and still no bonus. Pushed from Discover each month.

Nada here, I did 3 Chase pushes and nothing. Per below even real DD bonus hasn’t hit yet. I am waiting for a DP on a true DD before I contact them.

Frank (@guest_1555898)

Don’t contact them if you didn’t do real DD. Just chalk it up as a loss.

Good point, closing out account

I opened in August and did 10k worth of legit DDs in Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec. No bonus yet.

Kris (@guest_1526838)
January 5, 2023 12:17

I wonder if they are just not paying out bonuses now, since no one has gotten one recently. Did you contact customer service to see what’s going on?

Steve (@guest_1527005)

Good news for those of us who didn’t use real DD. Can you contact them and ask about it for us?!

Churnobyl (@guest_1532730)

I talked to them about this on the online chat function. Here is what the rep said:

I have reviewed the records and see that the account was opened on 31st of August 2022 with the offer online and up on meeting the requirements for 3 consecutive months, you will receive the bonus after 8 weeks, it should be the first week of February 2023

I would request you to wait till 2nd week of Feb and get back to us if you have not received the bonus up on meeting the requirements and we will help you further with an investigation.

I also spoke with the chat support. She said I wasn’t eligible due to not meeting the direct deposit requirement.. even though my Schwab pushes have been waiving the monthly maintenance fees for over 4 months.

Ended up just cutting my losses and closing it down.

The cartel bank wins again. : /

Wow. You didn’t do real DD & you actually asked them why you didn’t get your bonus? 🤣 I honestly still would have waited to see if it would pay out. I wouldn’t have closed it. Better luck next time.

Jester (@guest_1551481)

worth a shot if I’m closing it down anyways. I don’t make anywhere near 10k a month either. sucks to be poor.

Chatted with them again today since bonus still has not posted. They opened a case for review and told me I’ll get a response in 3-5 business days.

Kris (@guest_1551380)
February 7, 2023 00:08

I hope you get it, since you had legit DD’s. The rest of us with fake dd’s just have to move on and take the L.

AlBundysBigguns (@guest_1555759)

Let us know if you get a response from hsbc.

I was going to do this, but if they aren’t even paying out for real DD’s, it sounds like it would be too much of a headache to pursue given the amount of DD’s to tie up and the timeline.

wrong person

Churnobyl (@guest_1556978)
February 15, 2023 10:36

Chatted with them again today, was told “I am showing the case was closed saying to check back because it showing too early to tell if the account qualified for the promotion.

If the qualifying activity was met for the promotion the $500 welcome bonus is applied 8 weeks after meeting the qualifying activity.”

I responded by saying I am well past the 8 weeks and that is why the case was opened in the first place, and the rep said “Yes, he opened the case and I have provided information that is showing from the back office about the case. I will send an email to the representative to have the case reopened for further review.”

Here we go again…

Got my bonus on 2/28. I don’t think it had anything to do with my escalation based on the fact that everyone else seemed to get it on the same day too.

Schwab brok push might be dead. 4 months.. nothing

I used ally, no bonus yet. Another user used chase, they haven’t received anything either. Wondering if no ach work now?

Jester (@guest_1524048)

a real tragedy. might try to call in for a hail mary before closing her down.

somehow the monthly fee is being waived though?

**Recurring direct deposits totaling at least $5,000 from a third party to an HSBC Premier checking account(s) per calendar month**

Kris (@guest_1524888)
January 3, 2023 12:22

That’s what I thought too but on this page under avoiding fees section it says “According to this document the monthly maintenance fee is waived for the first six months for the HSBC Premier checking account. It’s not clear if something similar also applies to the Advance checking account”.

It would be helpful if we had more recent data points on what people used, account to account transfer and real dd. Also, if anyone has gotten the bonus at all since July.

Will multiple ACHs (totaling > 10k/month) work?

Anyone who opened their account in august get their bonus yet?

Opened mine Aug 18th.
Pushed 10k from Ally for months Sep, Oct, Nov and even Dec just to make sure.
Nothing yet as of Dec 8th.
