I opened a checking on 7/22/2019 and got my bonus on 8/27/2019. If I close the account and a few days later open a new one, will I get the bonus? Thanks.

You should get it. It has to be at least 1 year since last bonus.

I cleared my cookies and got the new dates to show up. $250 for MyChoice Plus, code TH. Central MD.

I got an offer in the mail (NJ footprint) TODAY for MyChoice Premium 350 + 100 Money Market bonuses for a total of $450. Both require 10K deposit in there March and April and need to be opened by 2/26/2021 with “Personal” promo code of CE. Says mtb.com, phone or in branch….so should work I guess for all people in the area. I have had accounts in the past but this one appears to have been sent to a name variation which I usually use only in filling out requests for “junk” mail, offers, etc…..so not from past records or official sources, but from some marketing source that collected my data.

So are you going to take the bait and sign up with your throwaway name?

Don’t believe there is a need to sign up with the throwaway name – won’t pass ID verification. Anyone should be able to signup with the code. I am considering this or BoFA business which nets probably $50 more for the same amounts deposited for the same lengths of time.

Which BoA biz bonus is this? I was targeted for the $500 bonus, but that has a $20k deposit requirement.

HarryTheFirstHarry
HarryTheFirstHarry

yes same. For bofa biz, 20k deposit gets 500 in 2 mos. here 20k deposit (10 checking+10 mm) gets 400(350+100) in 2 mos

I got the same sketchy mailer (green with a perforated card)–also addressed to a fake name I use for junk mail.

I can see M&T using this is a basis for not paying out bonus since we’re technically not the target recipients, which might make this offer a bait-and-switch considering all the DPs here about withheld bonuses.

While it is a risk as always, I would think the code is generic enough for anyone to signup. One thing I would do if I do this offer is to call after signing up and verify that the code has been applied before I deposit the 20K or better yet go into a branch as they will give a printed sheet showing that the offer has been applied.

I got one addressed to Fake Name too with same promo code CE

JC

Well, I have a business relationship with M&T and received one of these as well addressed to my business address and my business name thanking me for my business relationship and telling me to open a personal account. I plan on doing it in branch since my home address is different then my business address just to make sure that I receive the bonus.

Do you mind uploading a copy of this mailer (of course removing your personal information)? Thanks.

12 month time frame? is that based on account closing date or bonus payout date?

Nick

From doing a comment search, it appears the 12 month clock starts once the bonus posts. I would wait to open an account until after the last payout date.

thank you for the info, last bonus was paid out 12/2019 and account closed 05/2020. new account opened today! guess i will update in about 60 days to see if paid out.

I got an offer by mail for a $350 bonus for MyChoice Premium Checking. Looks like the only requirement is to deposit10K for several months with no direct deposit.

NJ Here “Sorry, but this offer isn’t available in your area.” sucks

I’m also in NJ and got 3 offers:
$250 for MyChoice Premium or Plus.
150 for EZ Checking

Patti, i am in NJ too. did you open your account through local branch? what promo code did branch input? you opened both EZ checking and Mychoice plus checking? thanks

I opened a Plus account for myself and hubby online. I entered our zip code and it automatically attached code TH to the app. Maybe this depends where in NJ. We are within a half hour drive to Philly.
I still have an old M&T checking account > 1 year old. I woke up today to see I’m locked out of my account. I’ll call them tomorrow and straighten it all out.
I was not offered a chance to fund it at all. I was hoping to fund by a credit card but it didn’t even offer to transfer from another account.

In eastern PA, I get the following online offers (did not try the branch offers because I didn’t want to give contact info):

$150 for EZChoice
$250 for MyChoice Plus or Premium

I get the same for Philly suburb in south Jersey

Same here for South Jersey, but some DPs below of people in NJ being told that promo code TH isn’t valid in NJ, so I don’t think it’s worth wasting time.

Patti

If you click on Redeem Online and enter your zip code, it lists all offers and you don’t need to enter code. It must be regional. We are a big state. hahaha

How can you tell if you’ve been targeted?
