This bonus is back and publicly available in branch, now its $250 and requirements are easier. Saw a local flyer, can find more info if anyone is interested

I was targeted for this bonus, and went to the branch with specific questions about DD requirements. After a fiasco of trying to get the info, the rep said DD would not be satisfied with an ACH transfer from another bank. Called Provident’s main office and that rep confirmed with a senior that transfer WOULD meet requirements.

2019: Has anyone been ‘denied’ the bonus by not having been targeted? Anyone able to provide a 2019 scan of the offer?

I’ve tried in the past to open. They enforce the targeted nature.

They don’t have CC funding anymore.

Anyone have access to a spare mailer? Anyone with DP on getting this to work if not targeted? I am in the footprint, but no mailer.

Just a heads up – when I had a checking account with Provident, there was a debit card inactivity fee that most people did not pay attention to. I believe it was a $1.50 inacivity fee if not used in 60 days but don’t remember exactly.

So pay attention to the schedule of fees.

“Now contains targeted language stating ‘These bonus offers are only available to the person to whom the postcard was mailed living at the address specified in the mailing and offers are not transferable” lol so they learned from last year? Terrible bank though, awful phone customer service, branch is ok but mostly cause branch is empty.

Bonus posted for wife and I. Now the question is to just pay the $15 and be done with this awful bank, or go activate the debit cards and watch out for other bs fees that may pop up.

I got hit with a “debit card inactivity” fee. Years of churning and this is the first one where I got dinged for not using the piece of trash plastic.

Bank bonuses are bribes to deal with their fee crap.

Same here. Is it for not activating them or not using them?

So I still haven’t gotten around to closing mine from the 2018 bonus. I just checked and I don’t see any inactivity fees in my account. I think I never activated the debit card at all.

or maybe activating the debit card stops the 1.50 fee… but you don’t have to use it? I can’t remember. I see no charges in past 90 days though and I haven’t touched the account in forever
