I can’t get any CC funding to go through with this bank. Tried first a couple times with Cap One Venture, each time I get a failure message. Eventually I got a letter saying it was denied. Tried again with Citi AA and same issue. I am doubting it is the CC denying the charge.

Citi Platinum coded as a purchase $1500 went through

FMB called me into their Branch to confirm the account and have 2 forms of ID (DL and a bill with my address on it) so they can send me my debit card. Payment posted on my Citi Prestige and was ready to be withdrawn/used by the time I got my card.

While sitting in the bankers cubicle they asked me some less then normal questions like if this was tied to my college since 30 other students made an account that same week (although no affiliation to my college so I am not sure why they thought that). I said no and that I signed up because they had the bonus offer. They told me that I was not the first one to mention this offer and asked for a screen shot which I supplied. They did tell me that they will honor this promotion.

I would advise against opening it, especially if you’re in Wisconsin. They’re saying that the promo is not a thing. There also aren’t any branches in Wisconsin at all.

Apparently they are not honoring this; they said that it must be part of a fraud issue.

The CC funding had gone through (posted as a purchase on United MPE), so they’re going to refund it to the CC. They said they couldn’t refund it any other way.

First Midwest bought the bank that I used. They ruined it. I cannot get anyone from mortgages to call me back.

Hit ’em hard, take these bastards’ free money!! Fund it with the card with the highest interchange fees.

I’m sorry to hear that Eric. While you did have a poor experience with FMB I have had nothing but excellent service from them as a previous customer. They did never buy the bank I was using and change the culture, rules, and maybe even personnel so I can understand where you would be coming from. I do plan to keep this account open after the bonus since it is free, that way I can run MO’s through while at home and at school.

 William Charles. Kind of confused with the bonus page. When I click the “Full Site” button and go to their website I don’t see any kind of information about the promo. Is it automatic when signing up if we are residents of these states? Thanks

Just opened an account and funded $2500 with Southwest Premier. Already showing a pending $2500 charge on

$2,500 was the limit

I lowered my cash advance limit for Chase Fairmont to $100, and was able to fund $2,500

$2500 limit. My CA limit is <$2k so I'm assuming that it wouldn't have gone through if it was going to post as a CA. I'll comment back in a couple days if/when it posts.

i just visited the page for First Midwest Bank, but i don’t see how/where to open an acct online. Can you post a link to the bank’s site – i wonder if there is more than one, like with Pinnacle.
