m That’s pretty crazy… over a month later, the online account opening is still broken.

Waiting on my bonus from my March acct opening… Does anyone have a recent DP on payout?

I opened in February and I’m still waiting. Used legit DDs and my 125 days passed on Friday. Planning to call this week.

Any news on that conversation?

I called and they told me that I had to wait 30 days from the 125 days after account opening to receive the bonus. That was not the terms, but I didn’t really feel like arguing especially because they said I had met the requirements. That was about a week ago, and the bonus posted this morning. Account opened in early Feb, with real bi-weekly DDs in March, April, May, and June.

William Charles $200 Sandy Springs is through August 31, 2022 using this link…https://www.sandyspringbank.com/offer/myfree

I recently moved and got a mailer the other day with almost the same offer, but it’s good until 6/30/22.
Per the mailer, it requires a $500 direct deposit w/in 45 days of opening, which must continue for at least 4 months (3 statement cycles after opening cycle).

3/17: applied online and could not verify identity, message to call or visit a branch
3/18: visited a branch and denied, assistant branch manager does not know why

Chex (not including Sandy Spring Bank): 1/1, 2/3, 11/6, 15/12

Instant approved. Chex inquires/months = 1/1, 3/2, 4/3, 9/6, 19/12. (not counting Sandy Spring)
No issues setting up online banking – instant approved as well.
I’m in a listed state (VA), but the nearest branch is ~200 miles away by car.
My last Sandy Spring account closed Nov 2020.

Going for a churn. My last account was closed in late 2020. $250 CC funding – Citi DoubleCash. Let’s see if it sticks?

Instantly approved/acct number provided. At exactly 3 other Chex inquiries in the last 90 days, not counting this one. 1 in Jan, 2 in Feb.

Getting an error when trying to enroll in online banking. Not overly surprised. Will likely have to call, but I will give it 24 hours.

Had to call to get online banking enabled – I chose online banking support vs personal account support via the phone tree. Rep said he had to get it approved/push it through, after a short hold, the new login I created a few days ago worked – call only took a few minutes. Pretty sure it was only an issue because I have had an account with them before, but maybe it’s best to wait a few days before even trying to register.

dizzy Three (other) Chex inquires in the last 3 months being ok seems to hold pretty true IMO. No more than that and they shut it down. Because banks continue to monitor Chex for the 1st couple of months via a soft pull, I am a lil scared to apply for anything else yet. I have had them mail me a check for my funding in the distant past, so they might be a little scared of me too.

Received my debit card PIN in the mail, but no card yet. I recall just getting a debit card was a fiasco in past applications, so maybe they have improved (I assume no PIN would be sent if no card was ordered). Citi Double Cash funding did post as a purchase.

@gadget how are you under 3/3 on chex? LOL. But thanks for the DP…I am not anywhere near that these days, tho Feb I was lazy

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

– I’ve slowed down with the applications… plus the 2 years between accounts rules are taking a toll.

– VA doesn’t have quite as many options as PA.

– You don’t have to be under 3/3… just at 3/3, not counting Sandy Spring/Chex only.
BMO in Jan, Citizens & Truist in Feb. Rerolling SoFi doesn’t count (EWS).

I have eyes on Senate, South State, M1 checking, Citi reroll coming soon, etc.

Two more DPs to confirm others experiences, both P1 and P2 received bonuses on the closing date of the 4th cycle. P1 made DDs in all four, but P2 ended up only needing them in three since the first cycle closed within a couple weeks of opening. So, waiting until after the first cycle closes but before the 45 day window to make your first DD should be fine.
