Opened my account on 4/12 using the TK promo code. Fulfilled all requirements, waited the full 90 days. Called them and after an hour on the phone, they said this code wasn’t applied and even if it was, the promotion didn’t exist when I opened the account and they therefore don’t want to pay the bonus. Has anyone run into this issue? Should I report to the CFPB?

No, I never ran into that… but it appears they have started screening these bonuses pretty hard. TK did exist 3 months ago, but maybe not intended for your zip code.

Assuming you used a real DD, and didn’t do the zip-code workaround to get the offer to show up, I would CFPB and see what becomes of it. Worst they can do is say no.

It would be a good idea to include a screenshot of the offer you signed up for… a note I keep making for myself to start saving them for every offer I do.

Looks like the current M&T offer’s now the $250 for $500 DD in 90 days for any personal checking account, including the no-fee EZChoice. Nice improvement over last wek.

Negative DPs: When I put my zip code in through the link it said the offer is not available in my area. But I was able to open using the homepage and manually entered promotion code TH. There are M&T branches within 7 miles from my address.

4/30 Opened M&T MyChoice Plus with interest
Dates below were the dates posted at M&T (not the send date from external banks).
5/07 Push from Chase $505
5/07 Push from Discover checking $500
5/20 Push from Chase YouInvest $505
5/20 Push from NASA FCU $501
5/27 Sell investment from Vanguard brokerage $501
6/11 Push from Schwab brokerage $500 (shown as SCHWAB BROKERAGE MONEYLINK)
7/02 Push from Santander $508.88 (shown as my First Middle Lastname Payment)
7/02 Push from Santander $1 (this was done by mistake)

NO bonus so far.

DPs previously showed Schwab and Santander work to trigger bonus before (see May 28, 2020 comment # 988286 by Rob). For Santander push, does it have to be from another person?

I am starting to think if the actual zip code in our address is not eligible, the trick of manually entering TH from the main page may not trigger the bonus after all. Can anyone please also confirm?

I just opened a MyChoice Plus chk acct. There was no option given for an opening deposit, let alone CC funding, during the application process. This backs up other DP’s in the past couple months. Disappointed from the MS angle, but at least the $250 bonus seems to post quickly once the $500 DD req is met.

Did anyone with a FL address recently open a M&T account and get the bonus? I did it about 1.5 years ago with a FL address and ended up getting the bonus, even though Florida is not officially listed as one of the states. I’m just curious whether it still works?

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

It used to work… as it was unofficially nationwide… But now people are reporting that as soon as you hit submit on the page with your out of state address, it gives an error that they are not offering checking accounts in your state. But, you could just try it yourself.

I’m trying to get this bonus for the second time and failing to open an account. I’m in the targeted region. I have tried different browsers, incognito mode, disabling extensions, slight modifications to how I enter my address, and leaving out my middle initial/name, all to no effect. Here is the message I receive:

XXXXX, you will need to visit a branch to open your new account
Sorry, we couldn’t confirm your identity at this time. Please visit a branch to open your new account.
Please remember to bring the following items to the branch:
Government Issued ID
Your social security card
Proof of your address

Here’s some additional history:

2019-04-30 – opened M&T MyChoice Plus Checking With Interest (first account)
2019-05-08 – received $250 bonus
2019-05-17 – downgraded to EZChoice Checking, zeroed out account
2019-10-07 estimate – account automatically closed due to zero balance, not charged early termination fee

My first account was before I realized I needed to leave a small balance in open accounts. I can’t log in using my old credentials; I receive the message “Your Online Banking account is closed. For assistance, please call M&T Online Customer Service…”

Any suggestions?

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

Stop retrying and wait 30 days from most recent attempt… if you don’t want to wait that long, then you should do what it says and go in branch.

At least now they have fixed the error message… you used to say something like “unable to open in the online channel”.

Thanks for the info, I’ll try again next month.
