Dosent seem to be any mention of the offer on the website. Could it have been pulled?

P1 and P2 opened accounts 7/6. $500 Ally push on 7/11 and completed 15th Amazon reload (all less than $1) 7/15. Made real $500 DD 7/22. No bonuses posted yet, which seems odd since other DP indicate bonus posting day after meeting requirements.

RyanE Same here, it seems like this has been pulled back. Did you end up getting your bonus?

Still have not received the bonus. I definitely applied while the offer was still on the webpage (7/6/22)

Never been able to login to online banking. Always a 500 internal server error. Their IT dept and ticket system are incompetent and its the usual try a different browser / cache / phone / cookies, different IP, etc and its the same 500 internal server error every time. They force you to enable e-statements via online banking and not over the phone so ive been forced to pay e-statements and monthly maintenance fee and call in anytime I need to see my balance. Cant wait to close this annoying account but waiting for the 6 month mark so they dont clawback.

Anybody get a fast payment recently? Mine seems to not be paying out. Is that due to the DD used? Or are they slow on payouts now?

Looks like it might have been the debit purchases. I did 15 but I guess one of them didn’t count. I did 13 CashApp reloads of $1.0x, one small purchase at the post office, and a $.01 payment to xfinity. All coded as POS PURCHASE NON PIN, except for the post office, which was a POS PURCHASE WITH PIN. I did an additional CashApp reload of $100, and it triggered the next day.

26Jun: Discover push
28Jun-7Jul: 15 aforementioned debits
13Jul: AMEX biz push
14Jul: Shopify payout
18Jul: $100 CashApp reload
19Jul: $400 “BRANCH CHECKING OFFER REWARD”

I didn’t see anything for a minimum debit purchase, but I’m guessing the 1 cent purchase was probably the one that didn’t qualify. There was a lock in the middle where I tried too many reloads in a row, not sure if that was related. The 15 were all successful, not including the ones denied due to suspected fraud.

Here is my referral link, if anyone would like to use it. https://bit.ly/3P98W2W Doing so will earn each of us an additional $50 — and you will still be eligible for the full First Merchants bonus. Be sure to register at the referral link first, then apply for the account through the DoC link above. The requirement of 15 debits only needs to be done once and will trigger both the referral and bonus. Don’t forget the $500+ Deposit for the $400 Bonus. An added hint — product change to a Carefree checking account as soon as the bonus hits to avoid future monthly fees!

Thanks if you end up using my referral!
