Opened the Advantage Plus Checking on 10/9/20 and the savings account on 10/13/20. Got the $200 checking bonus yesterday but still waiting on the $100 savings bonus.

My DP: Went for the $200 checking and $100 savings bonus so I first opened an Advantage Plus checking account with the DEC2020 promo code. Was approved so I then logged in to online banking and could see the checking account. I then also saw a button that said “Add account” so I clicked that and selected Advantage Savings to try to go for the $100 bonus. However, I could not apply the DEC2020 promo code to it as it continually said the promo code was either not valid or did not apply to the product selected. I tried various ways and times, even selecting a different savings product. The DEC2020 promo code just did not seem to work even though the fine print specifically says that DEC2020 needs to be mentioned when applying for the account.

I had to call the bank to help me with a different issue so I asked them about the issue with trying to apply the DEC2020 code to the savings account and was told that it was not necessary. I pointed them to the fine print in the promo wording but the rep still said it was fine since it was already attached to the checking account. I hope they are right.

Appears to be Chex-sensitive. I opened a savings and checking account the 25th, and (apparently) Online Banking was locked the 27th due to what the rep claimed was my 17 Chex inquiries (in the last year I think). So they didn’t close my accounts, but I have to go in personally to bank location to verify my identity to get it unlocked. Grrr.

I see that online the app allows you to enter a new york zip code and still continue to signup using your address in another state. Did anyone opened this successfully online outside of NY and MA and still get approved
Any DPs would be helpful

They will allow you to open but then ask you to go to a branch or they will close your account.

Need to keep 75k funds in order to avoid the $30 monthly banking fee for the Premier Advantage bonus($300) or $7,500 average balance on the Advantage Plus Checking ($200 bonus)

No recent DP on if any of the big players work (Schwab, Ally, Chase, Cap360, etc..) in coding the ACH as DD.

And need to keep a high balance in there to avoid the fee.

Really wanted to do it, but not worth it with the somewhat high requirements and lack of recent DP’s.

Seems like a good offer, but how do we trigger the DD? The DD page is sparse on information for this bank. Also I think your state list is short, someone in the comments implies it works in ME and it is definitely showing in CT for me.

This bank requires real DD. Tried before with Fidelity ACH and no bonus.
