P2 applied online, account number given at end of the application. Says they will contact her when the account is “approved”. Funding is via ACH or Debit card.

We are in footprint, so that is not a concern. Testing the “180 days since last account” new customer rule. On P2’s account, 182 days ago her previous checking account was closed. Worked out to be perfect timing to catch this bonus, IF it works.

I forgot to mention, it got extended to August 1st. LOL William Charles

Tried opening an account – I’m in northern VA – got an email a few days later saying I’m out of their service area (which is apparently limited to the “Virginia Beach area” in VA).

I did the Dollar Bank $300 offer last August, and so still have a month to go before I get the full bonus and close the account. Will my wife be able to do this bonus, since it’s a different offer and it’s almost a year later? Or, does the household limit of 1 mean that she will be ineligible because my account is still open?

CtownBin SO and I beat their HH limit by signing up during different promotions many months apart, actually almost a year apart, but while the other still had an account. However, we have different last names. In fact, I referred her, so we weren’t very stealthy. This was a couple of years ago now. LOL

If I were you, I would try it, but there aren’t a lot of DP’s for this bank and your experience might be quite different than mine. All it takes is that one proactive employee to discover that your other half has an account that got the bonus. Luckily, most workers aren’t that diligent and probably don’t care.

The good news is you can find out right away, with the debit card rebate, if it worked or not. If it doesn’t, you do have to tolerate it for 6 months though to avoid the ETF, per fee schedule anyway.

Finally got $200 bonus today after called 3 times. Opened account at April and completed 6K in 10 days.

Wells Fargo works for both rebate and DD bonus.

Opened mid May. Met requirements mid June. $100 rebate was available next day (I think? – I got debit card later than when I met requirements so I’m guessing when it was available but I got the $100 nonetheless). Got $200 DD bonus this morning.

Make it rain dolla dolla bills y’all.

BTW Zelle is NOT instant with this bank. I have no idea why, but it is next day transfer. This is the only Zelle capable bank that hasn’t been instant for me.

Zelle has been instant for me with this bank. I used $1k and WF to get the $5k requirement. All my zelle transfers were same day and I initiated 1k transfer back to Dollar Bank on same day.

I tried again and it is still next business day. Just FYI, I was referring to outbound Zelle transfers from Dollar Bank to another bank initiated on Dollar Bank’s Zelle side.

Hm that’s interesting wondering why its different for me. And yea thats what I was talking about I did Zelle transfers from Dollar Bank to my WF.

Now I have a suspicion I may be flagged or something but won’t know for sure without other DPs.

Does anyone live in Virginia and completed 5K 60days and sill waiting $200?

Not sure where you get the 60 days from but per the terms:

“To receive the $200 credit, the account must receive cumulative direct deposits of $5,000 or more within 90 days of account opening and the account must be in good standing.

The $200 will be credited to the new checking account within 40 days of the qualifying cumulative direct deposits.”

I am. Opened the account late March and never got my $200 despite the rebate showing up after my “DD”

Live in Northern Virginia and picked their Norfolk branch as my nearest location. Got an email today saying I’m declined since I’m not in their market area. I think someone had previously posted that they were successful opening an account even though they live in Northern Virginia? Guess they may be cracking down.

I opened an account while residing in NoVA, back in late March. Still waiting on the bonus after 60 days though…I wonder if they cracked down on that too. Used NFCU (2 x 2500), Alliant (2500), TMobile Money (2500), and a few others but at smaller amounts.

That would be me. I have no issues whatsoever. My application was approved after calling in to verify more information, so I’m not sure if there was or wasn’t manual intervention. However, yours is the only one I see that was declined for OOF even though you are in NoVA. Definitely an anomaly.

Already received my Debit spend rebate and I’m waiting on my DD bonus.
