Can we zero out the account for the first 6 months after DD?
I see that no fee for first 6 months, but any DP if there is no issue there?

4/16 Opened HSBC savings account for $125 SlickDeals rebate
5/11 Applied for HSBC Premier $700 checking offer
5/18 Checking account approved

June: Pushed $2k each from WF/Fidelity/Ally
July: Pushed $2k each from WF/Fidelity/Ally
7/31 Got first $120 bonus for June

Cutoff was “March 29, 2017 through and including March 29, 2020 are not eligible” when I applied for checking so it didn’t matter that I got the savings account first in April as a new customer

DEPOSIT FROM PNCBK SV WEBXFR-P2P – This doesn’t count as a direct deposit right?

Customers who held an HSBC consumer deposit or investment account from January 6, 2017 through and including January 6, 2020 are not eligible for this offer

well this disqualifies me… bummer in the summer.

Ok, here we go:
got declined by HBSC twice around 3 years ago, never bothered with them again.
Just read through a bunch of comments in different DoC threads, still unsure:

Option 1: Currently you can sign up online for this offer, it pays $100/month for 6 months of 3000 DD’s, so $600 total.

Option 2: Alternatively you can opt to call-in with a referral. You get $500, referrer gets $100. See https://www.us.hsbc.com/share-the-experience/

Question:
Are there any requirements for the option 2? Or just ‘open the account with referral code and wait’?

Also, what apllication method might be more successful – online link (option 1) or phone call (option 2), esp. if out of footprint?

Lastly, will the monthly fee be waived in the beginning (esp. relevant for option 2)?

Any help greatly appreciated, gonna selfishly tag the reliable experts Kyle ❤️ and Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🙂

Currently leaning towards option 2, so if anyone want to SEND me their REFERRAL – DocUser1 (at) usa.com
(if I receive more than one I’ll choose)

P.S.: There was a comment of combing both promos in order (referral, close, then open this one). Seems to good to be true, but just reading the individual offer terms it doesn’t really exlude it (since this one has weird end dates of prior account). Anyone know better, or worth a try…?

I have only done the Slickdeals HSBC deal. Otherwise I’ve had zero interaction with HSBC. These terms are thick and heavy! I will take a deeper look tomorrow. Also will be following 🙂

Regarding the previously opened and closed account, one of the requirements says that ” Customers who held an HSBC consumer deposit or investment account from June 29, 2017 through and including June 29, 2020 are not eligible”, this is directly from the website and they adjust it as the time goes on. Did anyone had an account, received the bonus and closed and now opened the account again this year and has received the bonus? As always, TIA!

DP in 2 player-mode:

P1:
4/10/20: Account opened
5/2/20: First real DD
6/2/20: Second real DD
6/30/20: First $120 bonus posted

P2:
4/15/20: Account opened
4/26/20: $5,001 ACH from CO360
5/26/20: $5,001 ACH from CO360
6/28/20: $5,001 ACH from CO360
6/30/20: First $120 bonus posted

So that reconfirms that CO360 ACH works and that bonus posts at the end of the second month after the month in which you open regardless of whether or not you DD in the month you open.

Thanks for the DP, Nick Reyes! Per aquac’s comment below, seems like the first bonus posts at the end of the second *full* month your account is opened, and the first calendar month your account is opened (and any activity that occurs during it) doesn’t count for anything: https://www.doctorofcredit.com/hsbc-700-checking-bonus-direct-deposit-is-required/#comment-1000486
