11/18 – 15x $0.50 Amazon reloads
2/5 – $500 bonus posted

It looks like First Midwest was decimated by COVID-19 last year so we might not be seeing any more bonuses from them in the future. https://www.nwitimes.com/business/local/first-midwest-bank-saw-its-profit-plummet-by-50-last-year-plans-to-close-17/article_1a37c2af-0203-505d-8a4c-9dd54c57ed2f.html

as other comments indicate, prepared to jump through a LOT of hoops to try to get this bonus. not going to be worth the effort for most people. very confusing, unpleasant experience to open.

I got the same experience for debit card delivery. Opened on Nov 4th, after 2 weeks, they said it hadn’t been deliveried because of glitch after I called to them. So, it would take another 7-10 bizdays or I could pick up in branch. I called to my banker to double check the location near my place opening or not. However, when I arrived, the lobby closed where is 40 mins away from my house and I walked in chicago’ winter (not too cold this year but not warm for walking for another half hour to another location). So, I argued with my banker. Next day, they did a fast delivery for free to me.

Now, I swiped 17 times for small amount transactions in Marianos and Jewel Osco. But they all named as ‘ATM/POS DB’. does it count for debit or credit transactions? I sent a secure message but I assumed they will take a while to fgiure it out.

Called an IL branch, banker was unprofessional, clueless about the required business documents, and someone on the other end burst into laughter after he said goodbye. They seem to require EIN and operating agreement for LLC

Terrible experience so far. Opened account 16 days ago. Called several days ago and was told to wait 7-10 business days for the DC to arrive. Called today because it had been 11 business days. Was told the DC was never ordered.

Finally received debit card, 27 days after opening account. Fortunately I still have 33 days to meet the debit card spend requirements.

DATA POINT:
I was able to close over the phone even with a balance, had to make an “appointment” and the banker called back within 5 mins.
