The $50/$50 referral bonus is slightly better if you have a family member referring you (https://readingcoop.com/friends-and-family-referral). It looks like there’s no mention of having to complete any sort of direct deposits/ bill pays. Of course, it’s best to check with the bank to make sure of that. Also, you’re only paying taxes on half of the bonus this way, as the half for the referring party would be 1099-MISC (*inserts generic consult tax advisor reference*)

Applied in December 2020 and got automated email that the bank would be in contact with me to complete the application. Never heard from the bank. Transfers for the opening deposits never occurred.

Second application attempt went through, but denied because of ChexSystems (5/6, 8/12, 19/24).

Extended to 12/31/2021. I think this bank always extends for another year, even though the webpage updates a little later.

The green online account is available online now but I wasn’t able to get through the application. Once it got to “Identity Verification” and I clicked next it failed with “Sorry, your application could not be completed.” Not sure if this was an issue with the application process or my very novel of a Chex report.

I went through the process of submitting an application, it seems you can only fund the account with a transfer from an existing account. Also, the link to open a new account from the promo page seems to be broken. You can open one from the main page, but it’s hard to know if the promotion will be linked to the account. For these reasons I abandoned my application.
