Received $250 bonus on 12/1/16 as “INTEREST CREDIT CASH BONUS NHA 2016”.

Made over three $25+ bill pays a month to three different cards.

Every two weeks I’d use Stripe to move $250+ into my account, labeled as direct deposit.

Account opened in early September.

I wasn’t able to do this one as I got too many inquiries at that time. Checked again today, bonus reduced to $50 now, so unlikely they will have $200 – $300 in the future.

*data point 1* I sent a message through the Astoria Bank website asking them to close my account. Two days later my account was close, and I no longer have access online.

*data point 2* A friend of mine called to ask them to close and they told her she had to come into a branch. She then sent a message through the Astoria bank website and they closed her account.

I closed immediately after getting the bonus and moving all funds out, which took about 2 weeks.

Waste of time… Automatically received direct deposit bonus $50 because that’s how I was fulfilling requirements. Today asked about where $250 bonus is and was told I can’t get it because I already received a bonus.

CFPB complaint resolved the issue, they issued the balance ($200).

LOL, the craziest/funniest bank ever!
Me, my sister, and my brother tried to open account ONLINE – all were denied! My sister opened 2 accounts in 4 months with other banks, me same thing, and my brother. None of us have any negative and unpaid bills ever. We still waiting for their letter of explanation! They run ChexSystem they mentioned: No evidence of Asset Ownership, DDA closure Payment History, DDA Closure(s), Unique FI DDA Inquiry History. We have no idea what they are talking about, never seen such a thing in our lives. We checked our Credit Reports 8 months ago. We will see!

Get a free copy of your ChexSystem report and review. It is NOT a credit report.

“ChexSystems is classified as a consumer credit reporting agency” we ordered! Still waiting! We are sure nothing will be there! Because three different persons cannot have the same issues as Astoria bank mentioned!

Pull for Bank of America CC counts as bill pay, but pull for Chase CC doesn’t count. No idea why and at the end of the day I couldn’t get the bonus.

Had to mail a letter to close the account, and waiting for the check now.

Wait, so you didn’t get the bonus bc you used bill pay to pay Chase CCs? And met all other requirements? Did you escalate and ask for the bonus bc you clearly did the bill pays to a Chase CC?

Opened a checking account in local Branch on last day of June Promo and funded with $2500.00.

Made 3 Direct Bill pay, each over $25.00 every month beginning in May, June and July.

$250.00 BONUS promptly posted today, 10 days after I fulfilled my direct bill obligation.

Astoria Bank is a community bank with courteous service. I will continue to bank here.
