DP: Link to offer page now redirects to personal banking page. I called the branch on Madison and La Salle in Chicago, was told that they do not offer this anymore as they are now merging with Fifth Third bank.

Can you get the business checking bonus and this personal checking bonus in the same year?

ie, I’m wondering if a business bonus bypasses this fine print: One new checking related bonus per customer per 12 month period.

Forgot if I already did a dp, but fidelity worked as DD for bonus.

Can anyone confirm how many $500 DD are required in the 90 day period….1 or 1 per month ergo 3?

Anyone had luck opening this outiside of Lake County Indiana? Like I am in Fort Wayne (Allen) county Indiana, thinking of trying. If no one has I probably will.

DATA POINT: MB Financial does not support adding external accounts for transfers, I signed up for promotion but this may not even be worth the hassle now…banker told me they did, online rep told me they do not after trying to add it myself. What a lame bank

You can push/pull via ACH from another account. This is not the only bank that does things like this. Some allow you to setup ACH, but then charge for it. For example Fifth Third charges $3 if you were to push money from 5/3 to external account. It does not for getting money into the 5/3 account. Associated Bank also charges $1. 5/3 has alternatives (Zelle), albeit I could not set it up for me. Kept giving errors.

Looks like Associated stopped charging a fee. When you go to Bill Pay>External Transfers it says a “fee may apply”, but doesn’t appear to charge one. I noticed it right after the update about two weeks ago. Zelle is a pain. You might have to contact the bank to reset your Zelle account. And it takes days to fix things… in my experience.

Wife and I signed up for this many month ago, but bonus is still not paid. Really hard to get hold of our banker. Will go to the branch tomorrow and close the accounts. This bank looks shady the moment we stepped in, should have relied our first impression and stayed away from this bank.

The same thing happened to me. I met the requirements and they didn’t pay out. Please HOLD THEM TO IT. You WILL get your bonus…just keep bugging your banker and don’t let them get away with this. They are crazy for advertising this and not paying out. They are legally obligated if you met all the requirements. Let me know how it goes!

Any update on this? Did they pay out?

DATA POINT: Just opened, if you live near branch just walk-in, no need for email voucher. Also, they give you a 3×5 security deposit box free for 1 year ($25 key fee). I just didnthe $150 checking acct only. Will try Fidelity checking as a DD and report back.
