They do a chex systems check. If you have opened a significant number of banks in the past, they will turn you away. In my case this number was 7.

Looks you can use the 7 month CD at 2.3% for $7500 to avoid fees on the $200 bonus. That seems like the best value to me. I think I’ll try this one. Thanks!

Seems like this is extended until 5/31/19 (stated in the banner), but the fine print and promo codes have not updated.

Offer dead now. Maybe they pulled the offer page to update the bonus?

DP:
open: 11/18/18
real payroll DD’s all the way through…
bonus payed: $200 on 3/22/19

p.s. also opened a $7,500 7 month CD at 2 % to keep linked checking account fee free.

Anyone seen the bonus for this? I have used real dd and nada. Opened in October.

Nope. I used Bluebird, and because I was taking no chances, did $501 for four months running. I also visited a branch in person to trade in some coins, but my debit card didn’t work and needed some tweaks. I had to see a teller in person, who then took pains to point out to me their current CD promo at, I think, 2.95% interest; which if not standard upselling, I thought she might have thrown that in there because my customer profile had “tells” indicating I had a promo code on my account. (Coin counting is free to patrons, btw, if that has value for you.) . I wondered for a mad moment if maybe I had inserted FALL200 instead of FALL100, but now that you have posted, I don’t think I did… Maybe there was a problem applying the code in the application process.

I checked my records of the text of the offer: “Reward will be credited to your checking account by 3/22/19 if the qualifications are met”.

Wow, that’s fairly long, but at least I won’t close it in the interim – thanks!

Received my bonus today right on time; so wow! Improbable as the wait time may seem…

Fidelity ACH did not count as direct deposit for this promo =(

Fidelity ACH doesn’t work for the direct deposit. Has been 5 months since I opened (with 500 monthly DD), and no bonus. Oh well..

Thanks for stopping by! I was starting to think I was the only one who never saw any money. Plus this month they charged me $10 in service fees, to add insult to injury.

I had 7 real payrolls deposited into this account, but I never any bonus until today……

Anybody else failed to see the bonus hit their account? I made 1 Bluebird transaction of $501 for 4 consecutive months (first of ’em was 8/29); and I kept a full balance of $500 until January 7, at which point I got fed up and moved it out somewhere else. Still waiting…

ETA to add: I was thinking of wrong account… my first recurring DD from Bluebird was 10/3/18, so it’s been 100 days. Sorry for mixup!

There’s a possibility this offer might be dead? I used the link to sign up and received an error that the coupon code was invalid. Signed up anyways and reached out to support team with the coupon code and that the date said into November for validation. Will update with their response
