Don’t forget to do at least one bill pay a month to avoid the $4.95 fee. ಠ_ಠ

Looks like this deal is gone, but there is a $100 Refer a Friend + $100 Account Opening Bonus option mentioned at the bottom of the homepage where it says, “Applicant must mention your name at the time of account opening.” I don’t want to run afoul of DoC’s referral rules, but is there a way we can set up a referral page for this bonus?

Please reply, I am trying to open this account for the promotion you mentioned but I need to use your name so we can both get the bonus. Can post a burner email. Thanks.

JT Hey, you can post a burner email here and I can send you the referral info if you still need this.

2/10: Account opened
2/15 -2/19: 12x debit transactions through Venmo
3/5: DD from employer
3/5: $200 Bonus shows as pending

I will definitely keep this account open as long as the apy is 2%+ and the requirements are easy to meet.

That’s what’s nice about this account; they just use first and last day of the calendar month (no need to worry about tracking some obscure fiscal calendar), it’s only 12 transactions, and no minimum per transaction. Hard to beat, as most rewards accounts require 15 with a $5 or $10 (or even $15) minimum per, or average transaction amount, etc.

They already lowered the APY to 2%, not a surprise…

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

The bonus will be deposited into your BIG DEAL® checking account within 70 days after the new account is opened.

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 noticed that it still shows under the requirements. Too risky to try and sign up my wife at this point? I’ve already signed up, met the requirements, and am awaiting my bonus.

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.

MW

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

Yeah they’re pretty great. I got a handwritten note more than once and they pay referral bonuses. This one’s staying open
