The offer seems to have expired. No mention of it is found on the bank’s website. Too bad, it is the only bank that offers a bonus in MO, where I reside.

William Charles Offer link is from 2017. New link on website for current deal is:

https://www.callawaybank.com/bank-switch-special/

Also mentions you have to bring in an old debit card to make the “switch.”

I could bring them a whole shoe box full of cards… Really don’t want to run them thru my shredder.

There’s a referral program where the bank would reward both of the referrer and referee with 3500 points. https://www.callawaybank.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/REFER_-A_FRIEND2011web.pdf

If anyone is interested, please shoot me an email with your referral info shown via the above link (name, add, phone, email) @ doc_austin@outlook.com
I’ll delete this post as soon as I get a referral.
thanks

I’m 120 miles from nearest location.There is a good bike trail on the way there. Do i need to live within 25 miles as some banks want you to be? Since i can only sign up in branch, i would not know till i showed up.

I recommend calling the branch you want to visit and ask a banker. 25 miles is not a normal requirement, but yeah, some banks do deny for that kind of distance.

This took a bit of effort – had to contact bank via chat twice to get bonus to post.

Opened account online 7/22/17 (see above – had to send in some paperwork)
All debits completed by 8/14 (six of varying amounts at Walmart and six .50 Amazon reloads)
Bonus posted on 10/17

Thanks DoC!

Callaway does allow mobile deposit of money orders, but your account has to be open for at least 30 days before they approve you for mobile deposit.

I successfully deposited a WalMart money order a couple of days ago although I did have to take the picture twice to get their system to recognize it. There doesn’t appear to be any hold on the funds either.

Per chat rep, there is no hard limit on mobile deposits, either quantity or dollar amounts.

Bonus posted today. Opened online 7/12. If they ever offer this again–probably/maybe good to go to open online.

Thanks, plungerjoke. I am still waiting on my bonus. When did you complete the $100 debit purchases? Utilize amazon gift cards? Thanks again.

I couldn’t find it anywhere on the site or on my paperwork. Had to get it from bank rep on chat.

Just tried online. This is my first ever bank denial. I’ve opened 8 bank accounts in the last year. This was the verbiage, followed by ChexSystems’ info.

They opened mine no problem and I’ve opened about 20 new accounts this year. Odd.
