When I go to refer it only lists a $50 visa card, not the other options for $500 etc., so I don’t think the referral piece would work anymore.

Opened Associated Excess Checking account on 01/29/2021. It has no Monthly Fee.

DD made from PNC ($700) & Schwab Brokerage ($10K) accounts since I wasn’t sure which one will trigger as real DD.

On 03/12/2021, all requirements were met and have been waiting for the bonus ever since.

Finally, $500 bonus was posted yesterday.

Hope this post will give some relief to all who are still waiting for it.

And I’d like to thank DOC for its great information and support!

It does not need to be $10K transfer at a time ….. right ??

I transferred $3K+ and $7K+ separately from two different accounts to fulfill $10K requirement (plus real DD separately).

i do not see in their fine print it’s only open to certain states. Anyone try in other states than what is listed above?

Well, not really sure why they have this condition, but seriously?
Unfortunately we cannot open accounts online for non US citizens or citizens who were not born in the United States. Please visit one of our branch locations to open an account

Never got mine and it’s been 120 days. I tend to think my DD wasn’t accepted. I used Schwab brokerage. Met all the other requirements, except paper statement fee hit me right before Day 90, which hurt me because it brought me below minimum balance tier requirements for a brief time.

Hmm, there aren’t many data points on what codes as DD–just Ally and PNC. I suppose I could just try to bombard it with ACH pushes from different institutions and hope for the best. Is there a specific memo description that real DD shows up as so that I’d know if it worked?

Was able to open an account from northern Michigan online. 2nd time I’ve churned this bank bonus. Got $175 from them a couple years ago when I had to open in-branch at the time. Closed my last account with them 7 months ago so was eligible again.

There is not much datapoint on DD here. Did you use real DD?

I’m using employer (real) DD to be safe.

Too big a bonus to possibly miss out on otherwise.

William Charles Chuck The website says “Determining your bonus: 90 days (or the previous business day), after opening your checking account, we will calculate the sum of the average daily balance for all your open Associated Bank deposit accounts for days 61-90. Total average daily balances of $1,000-$4,999.99 will earn $200, $5,000-$9,999.99 will earn $300, over $10,000 will earn $500.”

So, as long as we have $10K+ between days 61-90, we should be fine….right? That means, we do not need to keep 10K+ balance for the “whole 90 days”. We can just keep $100 (or any amount) from day 1 to day 59. Please let me know if it does NOT sound right.

That’s correct. Just don’t be the guy who is $3 short because he miscounted days, or got the paper statement fee in the 3rd month. (banks often don’t charge the fee the 1st month or so)

Has anybody else been able to successfully use a credit card to do the maximum $1,200 funding? I turned off cash advances on my Chase Sapphire Preferred ($100 minimum) and waiting to see if it is approved.
