Day before the DD tracker updates, I get a ‘Your Early Pay deposit is here’ email from Laurel, letting me know the DD’s considered payroll.

Johnz I got the same message from my Schwab Brokerage deposit, but it didn’t trigger an update to the tracker. So, you have to wait until the next day to verify the tracker updates.

My TD deposit worked as others have reported.

I think they overdid it. Even DD from IRS is not counted.

Even if that had worked, wouldn’t that only get you the $10 bonus once per year?

Question for discussion: what is the risk of LaurelRoad clawing back previous bonuses that were not real DD’s?

I am considering closing my account now rather than take that risk in the future.

Almost zero. They set a starting date for the new terms. There was no agreement stating anything about being retroactive.

While I agree with the “Almost zero.” response from the previous commentator, they are incorrect about there being “new terms”.

Laurel is simply enforcing the terms already on the books. They updated their backend system to prevent most “fake” DDs from working.

It was enough of a “new term” for them to send out an email, so I’d think that indicates a change in terms/conditions.

Plus, retroacting claw backs would make them a pariah. How fair would that be? Punish existing loyal customers, but presumably not punish those, like myself, that closed months ago, all who benefitted from their piss-poor enforcement of “qualifying DD’s”. This sounds like something Govt would do, since we have no choice in providers (other than moving), but not a business.

When is the last time you saw a deposit account bonus claw back? In the CC world (Amex), yes, but not typically bank bonuses.

The description for a Cash App cash-out says “Direct Deposit Cash App * Cash App,” but the tracker did not update

So much info what doesn’t work. But except business DD transfers, is there anything that still works? I personally tried DCU CU — no luck.

Chase business $2.50 ACH worked for me.

Can you do that if you have Chase business checking account?

How can you do that? Also, did you mean that there is a $2.50 fee per transfer?

I decided to move on. I closed my account, savings account and credit card. P2 closed her checking account. It was easy to do via online chat.

Nice I’m thinking about closing both checking and HYSA with them, was there any complications moving your money out? Should I push or pull?

TRJ (@guest_1829831)

I did push and pull. The ONLY thing is that you have to wait for the money to clear LR. I had a zero balance but the transaction was pending and they told me to wait until it cleared to make the request.

The way it works is that the CSR “puts in a request” and it will take a day or two. They say even with a zero balance they will mail you a check in about 10 days or so. It was easier than I thought it would be.
