Hey, found this online. Although I’m guessing it’s just for PA, I thought I would share. https://www.bankatfidelity.com/500checking/

I was able to open a checking account in branch even though I don’t live in NE PA (I live in Centre Co, PA). Made a cash deposit. I also got an extra $5 for installing their app and practicing depositing a check they gave me after they opened my account.

What was your Chex like?

Sorry for the late response. I had 15-16 new accounts in the previous 12 months when I applied.

Also, not valid for non-citizens online. Got this message

William Charles Not sure what to make of this one, as it looks to me like someone at Fidelity started to update the promo, then forgot what the new deal was going to be.

Top part is contradictory “$100 Cash Bonus*
When you open a new Fidelity Bank checking account online and meet certain criteria, you’ll earn $200. It’s easy!*” Fine print says something else. LOL.

I’m in NEPA. Opened checking and savings. CC funding. One week later, got a letter stating they will close both accounts. No reason specified. Pulled the funds out immediately Guessing they saw my lengthy ChexSystems after account opening.

Has anyone from out of state tried to apply for this online?

So with Dave’s comment above, is that the reason this is listed under the Nationwide and not under State specific?

I took advantage of a Fidelity checking/savings bonus about a year ago. You don’t need to live in PA to get the bonus. I live in NY and happened to be driving through the Scranton area, and they had no problem setting up an account for me.
