DP from Pennsylvania, Ally counts as DD:

02/03/2022: “Premier Checking” account opened online w/ $100 opening deposit from Ally.
02/08/2022: $100 opening deposit from Ally posts to HSBC account.
02/17/2022: $5005 ACH (Ally push to HSBC) posts.
03/17/2022: $5005 ACH (Ally push to HSBC) posts.
03/21/2022: Transferred $10000 from HSBC to Ally.
04/15/2022: $5005 ACH (Ally push to HSBC) posts.
04/28/2022: “2021 Q3 2022 Q1 ONLINE” of $450 posts.

I set up an automated monthly transfer from Ally ($5005) and pretty much left it until it posted. No fees yet. Pleasantly surprised by this one. As long as you do the monthly “DD” (transfer) requirement, there is definitely no need to maintain a large sum of money in this account. Thanks, Doc.

Is anyone have trouble getting paid out? I spoke with support after meeting all the requirements and they are now telling me I didn’t sign up through their promotional page which I remember I did! I’m not sure what else to do here.

I had an HBSC account in 2020 and closed it that same year (did a slick deal bonus then) so does that mean I’m not qualifying if it says “consumer who held any CONSUMER DEPOSIT account”.

Is that also a savings account? I can call the CSR chat line but I figured I’d start here to see if anyone would know

This bank sucks. They called to tell me they froze my account until they can verify my deposit because they couldn’t get ahold of the other bank after putting me on hold for 20 minutes. He also grilled me about why I changed my online password 2 weeks after opening the account. We will see what happens tomorrow but I might be pulling the pin on this one.

HSBC phone support has the most convoluted verification process. Very difficult to access account as they make you jump thru hoops always requesting additional personal information even after your account is setup including your other bank accounts. Very hard to understand operators and reach, very suspect. DO NOT RECOMMEND HSBC! IS HSBC A SCAM, WHY DO THEY KEEP LOCKING YOU OUT OF ACCOUNTS AND ASKING FOR MORE AND MORE INFORMATION!

I don’t think you know what “scam” means, but that does sound like an inconvenient experience.

Do they still have the early termination fee? I did not see that on the offer page. But for sure it’s hidden somewhere else. Also not too bad to have 25USD early termination fee when you have 500USD bonus.

“Customers who held any HSBC consumer deposit or investment account from March 31, 2019 through and including
March 31, 2022 are not eligible for this offer.

Eligible customers who take advantage of this offer cannot receive any other New Consumer Deposit Offers provided by HSBC Bank USA, N.A.”

Just saw this on the bonus disclosure, the 1st sentence is not new, BUT the 2nd sentence sounds like the bonus is once pre life time. I.e., for those of us who closed the HSBC acct before Mar. 31, 2019 but received the sign-up bonus previously, are we still qualified for this bonus?

Was not auto approved and just received an email to call in to give additional information. Anyone know what that might be?

Turns out it was just an address verification call. Approved after updating address.

There was a $600 “Share the Experience” bonus for Premier checking toward the end of 2020, so if you did that one like I did, your waiting period isn’t over yet.
