How long does it take for the bonus to post after completing requirements?

Is it dead now? Cant find $200 offer at their home page. It was there 1-2 weeks ago

I was going to have my wife apply using the same link I used and it appears to be dead. Way too good of a deal.

At the bottom of the page, there’s still the requirements for the bonus. Let’s pray it comes back soon!

I generally steer clear of bonuses with a certain number of POS transactions, because they can be a pain. Direct deposit I can handle painlessly through my employer online. Any suggestions of how to hit the POS transaction requirement, especially considering that there will likely be a manual review by employees?

amazon reload or venmo. and while they are doing manual review, it seems like they don’t care if you make it obvious; they pay out regardless. And you can do a bill pay instead of the real DD if that’s easier.

Thanks! Doesn’t this stipulate you need to use POS? Amazon doesn’t seem to request a pin. How does this trigger?

no idea and that really doesn’t matter; it works

The appeal of this account isn’t just the bonus, but the fact that it pays 2.25%. That’s above average for a rewards checking account, and 12 no-minimum spend transactions + 1 DD or bill pay, are more reasonable targets than other CUs/banks, which typically required 15, $5+ transactions, logging in at least once a month, a DD, etc.

12x venmo debit txns and 1 bill pay triggered the bonus and I was sent a lovely handwritten note. Such nice people.

How does the Venmo debit transactions work? Did you transfer money to Venmo using your Frontier acct and routing #s?

You use the debit card as a funding source. Venmo doesn’t charge for sending money via debit card

Received a hand written letter that my bonus posted even before I met the requirements. The small town bankers are so nice it makes me feel bad taking their bonus money. I wonder if depositing $25K at their bank for 2.25% interest is worth the risk of having this much money at a bank that would be very hard to visit in person if there are issues???

I can’t imagine you’d have a problem with their reps. Very friendly on the phone from my experience.

I’m also seeing a $5 credit (likely for signing up for estatements).

You can see the image of the counter deposit slip for this credit. They are manually done by a bank employee. I’d guess the full bonus will be manually reviewed and applied the same way.

Has anyone received their debit cards yet?

nope. “The card and checks will be mailed to you within 10-12 business days.” I opened last week and expect to see the card sometime next week.

I received the account opening package today and the Account number is nowhere to be found.
Emailed the banking agent where to find it. Waiting for the response.

Really? It was all over the pages that I had to sign and it was written on the little card included in the folder.

The application page seems to be down now

I got stuck at the last step, can’t check the box for disclosure to submit the application. How did you solve this?

Jake

I had a comment lower that I was stuck as well. I opened up saved application and went back as far as I could to the start and uncheck and rechecked everything. I also took out funding and said I would fund later and was able to get the disclosures to pull up after multiple attempts trying to get it to go through. Good luck!
