  • provide proof of school enrollment for the primary account owner (valid for students under age 24),OR
  • show valid military identification to have fees waived until ID expires.

Account also needs to be kept open for at least 90 days

Our Verdict

Pretty good bonus, it’s a shame that there is no credit card funding and that they are also sensitive to too many ChexSystems inquiries.  I will add this to our list of the best checking bonuses, but will make note of the fact they are ChexSystems sensitive.

Big thanks to reader, Rusty who let us know. Learn how to find bonuses and contribute to the site here.

When I tried to sign up, no hard pull was done. They’re Chex-sensitive. I had 11 inquiries in the last 12 months before this denial. No credit card funding.


They specifically cited Chex when they denied me.


Are u in nevada?


no online app? in branch or phone in only?


was bored at work and applied online. application under review (showed at the end of app and email afterwards). was able to setup online banking (inactive atm) and was given an account number but the status is still under review (?). no cc funding as stated above. minimum of $100 to fund (used chase checking). 5 (easy and not weird) identity questions. will set up e-statement once approved as there’s a $2.50 fee.

i’m in northern california and 3 of the branches are 12 to 22 miles away. i figured i’d try and see what happens. 😀

any questions about the application, just ask. I screenshot every step of the way.

Does anybody know what counts as DD? I don’t see any DP’s for Nevada State Bank, but their website doesn’t specify that it needs to be payroll DD.


Does anyone know if applying in branch raises your chances for the Chex account?


update: app denied coz of ‘cannot verify identity per experian’. which was surprising to me as i haven’t been declined in a while (cc or bank) coz of identity. i could still open in branch but will be a new application. i won’t coz of this ymmv term “Offer is valid to only the recipient of the postcard and is subject to change at any time.”

i ask if the checking is open for everybody/nationwide, csr said yes (after a long hold).


I just opened this account successfully from NV, minimum opening deposit is $100 and not between $20-$100.


Follow up. Looks like i missed the fine print saying it was only for people who received the postcard and were targeted. Or that was added to this post after I applied for this account.

For three months I was told I have completed all requirements for the bonus but not once was I told that I did not qualify for it. Only on asking where is the bonus since 3 months are complete I was being informed about this.


DP –> At least I can confirm chase ACH transfer counts as a DD for Nevada State bank as I did not get charged for the monthly fee for making the DD.
