Selecting “Other” results in the following message:
Thank you for your interest in Northwest Bank. We apologize, but we currently do not offer any products or services in your area. If you feel you have received this message in error please visit with a personal banker at any of our locations.

IE failed to function properly when switching to Esign a document. I had to switch to Chrome. Process was fairly smooth then. I am a senior citizen, they have a fee free version of Platinum for seniors.
My main complaint, was I failed to find a Savings account sign up link. So only the checking was opened.
I indicated I wanted checks for this account. NOT until the final confirmation page was there a disclosure of a fee for checks of about $27.00. Needless to say, I will be in the local branch in the morning.
Nebraska listed only a limited number of counties around Omaha / LaVista, Lincoln and Sioux City/North Sioux City (Dakota County). There was an alternate county option – Other
You will need to know your county to sign up for this account.

I called the banker. He says checks are free for most accounts.

He indicated the online app system has been troublesome on their end. Unable to find my application. Says all CC deposits are CA as far as he knows. Certainly true in branch.

After a week, nothing to indicate Northwest has processed my application. I thing I will pass up any further efforts.

Any update? I waited 3 weeks and got no response. I contacted them and they seem clueless as to knowing anything. They don’t see anything in the system.

I got a phone call this morning apologizing for online app SNAFU. Wanted to know if I was still interested. I was honest with them telling them the answer depended on CC funding as purchase. I also told them I moved on to another offer because of the online app SNAFU and not getting any more word.
Bank rep is trying to verify CC funding processes as purchase. Promo listed is still ongoing.

Banker got back to me. As best as he can find out, CC funding IS cash advance even via on line application.

I would be interested in experiences of others who CC funded.

My spouse applied again last night and received a confirmation email. However, after emailing the account opening email and an employee twice, no response was given. My CC was not run, same as last time.

It appears this bank is just plain incompetent and their online account opening doesn’t work. They aren’t a small bank, well over 1B in assets.

Looks like Platinum may be the best way to avoid fees. You just need 4 ACH per month, shouldn’t be hard to have a few in and out. Better than doing 15 (Bazing) or 30 (Compass) debit card transactions per month.

My wife did $1500 CC and it seemed to go thru…will see when it gets approved

Any update?

No update, sorry. I am doing a ‘Contact Us’ form to try and get an answer. CC was never charged, never received any email and have not heard any update yet.

I can also verify there was a Chex Inquiry for it.

I am local to a branch, Polk County Iowa to be specific. Called to verify credit check, she said they do NOT check credit, only a Chex hit. You CAN fund with a credit card, although they warn that it may be a cash advance. I do not know the max or min, I funded $550 with no problem.

Compass Rewards checking cannot be opened online, and has a $4 fee if you use your debit card fewer than 15 times per month.

The savings account has a $50 minimum to avoid fees.

Best way to avoid fees if you’re opening online is the BaZing checking, $7 monthly fee down to $6 with e-statements, and then each swipe of your debit card per month gets it down another $.20

Also, their application system times out very quickly so be quick when you are applying. I had to go through 3 times before I successfully opened an account. Hopefully that’s not 3 Chex hits.
