Anyone tried or thinking about doing this?
1. I already have a HSBC checking. Refer P2 for $500 referral bonus, P2 keeps the premier account for 15 business days and get $500 + $100 in total.
2. P2 close the account and apply for $700 bonus, keep it for 6 months.
This way will maximum the return to $1300 per household.
I am thinking this because the $700 bonus does not exclude people who has an account after March 30, 2020. If timing it right, we should get both bonus.

Did I miss anything here?

Did the $125 SD rebate for their savings account on 4/16 so waiting longer would probably disqualify me for checking account bonus — current cutoff is “March 29, 2017 through and including March 29, 2020 are not eligible”

Can’t believe I skipped the $750 bonus thinking fake DD would be hard — applied for this $700 bonus on 5/11 and checking account finally approved a week later on 5/18. Service fee is waived this month plus 6 full months so I’ll just do $4k/mo pushes from mix of WF/Fidelity/Schwab/Ally from June until Nov.

To avoid promo code not applying using DoC link I went ahead and googled “hsbc 700 bonus” and used the Google ad link to apply (link had cid=PPG… in it) — there was a bonus confirmation PDF near the end of the app. Since I was an existing customer with savings account they also wanted me to confirm I met the requirements early in the app:

“We recognize you as an existing HSBC customer. To continue, you must meet the offer terms and conditions outlined below.
Offer Terms and Conditions: This offer is available only online for applications completed using this form. Customers who held an HSBC consumer deposit or investment account from March 29, 2017 through and including March 29, 2020 are not eligible for this offer. All qualifying activities must be completed within the stated time frames in order to be eligible for the Welcome Offer. Customers who maintain(ed) a HSBC Mortgage and/or Credit Card without a consumer deposit or investment account are eligible.
No, I don’t meet requirements
Yes, I meet requirements”

For what it’s worth, I got the $750 bonus doing ACH from Wells Fargo and Santander. Can’t imagine they wouldn’t work for this too. Much easier to meet if you can float $1250 to transfer in and out each week.

Having $75k or $5k monthly DP to avoid fee is hard to meet. Pass…

Fee is waived for the month you open it and the following six months, which is most of the promotion.

Where did you see the fee is waived for the six months? I didn’t see it in the term, and CSR also told me that

This is from the terms at the end of my application.

So are they holding steadfast on 8 week payouts from qualifying monthly DDs or paying out cash back earlier? I missed the chance to apply on 4/30 to waste as little time as possible to start the clock, since the 6 months qualifying DDs start on the next full calendar month AFTER you open. I’ll sit on this til closer to the end of the month and wait to open to see some confirmed DPs.

Funny name )))) even if you would apply on 4/30, it takes them forever to open an account so better dont wait till the end of May. Im thinking to apply for P2 for 3% offer and will do soon. It might take 3 weeks if not 4. My bonus was posted with the same “2020 Q1 online acquisition campaign “ as one-times bonuses, and I have no idea is it for my DDs in February (partial month) or in March. Could be any, so many reported here they got first (partial) month DDs counted.

I mean not here but on previous one-time bonus page. Am I the only one who got humble $60 for 12 months offer?? Lol

Good to know on the account opening. Maybe that’s why they have the 1-2 month wait periods before starting the bonus clock. It does seem you are the only person (at least contributing so far) participating in the 2%, and I appreciate that, thank you. I haven’t heard anything from 3% folks yet but maybe that’s because they haven’t started paying out their first month bonus yet.

Yeah I think 3% offer is not paying yet. You are welcome!

Interesting that HSBC is offering 2 bonuses for Premier now, 3% $700 and one-time $475, with different apply pages. I think 3% is better not only because it’s bigger but in terms of that you can see if your DDs qualify each month.

ieatdogfood

IMO the current 475 is definitely a no go, but the expired 750 is probably the best, especially if you can time it right to pay 3-4 months rather than 4-5. The 3% sits in the middle but it should start paying first in month 2-3 all the way to 8.

Would I be eligible for this promotion if I did the Slickdeals promotion just a few weeks ago?

I see discussion of using Ally bank ACH for qualification of past HSBC direct deposit requirements. Would that work here?

Ally did not work for me for the $750 offer. Opened in December. DDs in February, March and April. I used Santander and Wells Fargo.

would opening the slick deals savings account interfere with getting this checking bonus?
