William Charles,

Service CU has a new $100 checking bonus below. There is no referral offer this time. It only requires 10 debit card purchases.

https://servicecu.org/newintown/

Terms don’t exclude current or past customers. So, who is going to be the guinea pig to see if current members can just add another checking account and get the bonus? I know it won’t be ieatdogfood.

I started to fill out the application but not feeling it. The offer is probably intended for “new in town” members.

Kyle ❤️

I will try it! Do you think I should close the current account first?

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

I can’t say. I would think I would close the current checking, wait at least a day, and then open another checking. But don’t close the savings as that makes you a member, which is what took so long to get approved.

Kyle ❤️

“Cannot be combined with any other checking offers.” I think I will wait with this language in the terms.

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

Plenty of room for debate there. You are not combining an offer if you aren’t doing another offer.

Kyle ❤️

True. I put in an application. What’s the worst that could happen?

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

Ummm, worst? The fraud prevention weenies decide you’re a risk and close your accounts/membership and hold your funds hostage for 1-2 months until they verify no other debits exist, then mail you a check.

Realistically, just another Chex hit.

Kyle ❤️

I’m ok with that 🙂

My account from the previous bonus is still open, but I went ahead and applied for this anyways to see what happens. I put “0920NEWMOVER” in the spot for a promo code, which is found in the hyperlink on the “Open Now” button. I don’t know if it is necessary or not if you use that link.

“Your recent online application has been canceled, as our records indicate you already have a checking account and Service Credit Union does not offer dual checking accounts to our members.”

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

OK, so, my suggested plan of closing the existing checking, waiting a day, and then trying to open a new checking is still a possibility.

I might give that a go this week.

Kyle ❤️

Did you choose the dividend acct for the new acct or select the everyday?

mothman69

I chose the everyday account. Are you willing to test the dividend account route to see if “dual checking accounts” is only for two of the same type?

Kyle ❤️

Just got the same email as you. I have the everyday and did apply for the dividend. So no difference on their end it would seem. From comments on the other SCU page looks like they are not planning on honoring this promotion nationwide or for current/past customers anyways.

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

Yeah, I have a feeling the terms on the webpage will be getting updated shortly. They should know better…

Gosh darnit. Submitted my post before completing.

What I was going to say is that I wish it was an instant approval process with instant number and not manual.

Hi all,
I opened an account a week or two before the deadline but I had to go back and forth with them around submitting documentation as well as getting approved for the pay 2 know program took weeks. My referral bonus was supposedly honored but I’ve been having issues getting it to trigger. I’ve submitted a $501 check deposit into my everyday checking which registered as a Direct deposit. I also pushed from Discover and Ally bank which coded as payroll. I was reassured that I was enrolled in the pay 2 know program referral. The check deposit processed on the 20th and the bonus seems to trigger at midnight or the next day… Anyone have any other ideas of what I can do? I

What you should do is put a real DD in there, wait 2 business days, and then contact them. But it’s up to you if you are going to contact them. It’s frowned upon, but whatever, they know their system is broke, and if you don’t ask, you are never going to get the bonus. I would give it another day or two, though.

Thanks all! I got $1900 referral bonus totally. Surprisingly, one $100 was still deposited yesterday~

DP: Very easy and quick to close the account via online chat. Took like 1 minute.

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

Did you let them know to forward your referral bonuses to me? 😉

Was there a promo code for offer?

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

The referral offer required a referral code, but not a promo code.

DP I know bonus is over but wanted to report that CC funding with Barclay AAviator coded as cash advance.

I joined using a referral code posted below in late August before the deadline. There were multiple delays, including 3 days between inquiries and responses about matters such as “do you have a secure portal” for requested documents, etc. The account was finally opened about a week ago. Lo and behold, the $100 referral bonus was posted, about a week after the deadline. They are true to their word. I guess it’s hard to get a timely response from anyone about anything nowadays…

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

Glad you got paid. But, the slowness could have been at least partially prevented. Portal availability (status page) and what documents they were going to ask for was covered in many of the comments here. Seen people get membership in 1-2 days if you play the game right. If you don’t pre-upload, you probably go to the bottom of the stack until they come back around to your file.

Sooo… how about ‘dem Bears?

Got a referral credit yesterday… thank you, straggler, without a checkbook. 😜

“without a checkbook” what does that mean? what info did they provide about the person who used your code?

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

Referral codes are dead, so little point in discussing.

1. They have no place to enter a referral code now.

2. I got no info on who used my code. But, if they had mobile deposited a check, they would have gotten the bonus a lot sooner.

That was the longest application/review process for opening a bank account ever. I applied 2 weeks ago and just got approved today. Hopefully, I can still get the welcome bonus. I’m bummed that I missed out on the referral train though. Oh well. Kyle I used your referral.

You should still be good in regards to the bonus. P2/P3 applied over 2 weeks ago, got approved yesterday, and got the bonuses.

P2 got her $100 bonus on 8/25 and I got my $100 referral bonus on 8/25 as well. P2 applied on 8/18 and it took them a whole week to open her account. I noticed I got an extra $100 on top of that too so someone here must have used my code as well. Thank you to that person.
