Where to find the account number apart from calling customer service? I can not find the full account number in my online account (only last 4 digits).

Unfortunately you have to call their customer service to find the account number… i know it’s awful…

Just called the bank and confirmed that people who are 100 miles away from their branches are ineligible for their checking account. I am a resident in Cincinnati, and I am not qualified to open an account with them. In this case, I think that I will not apply.

Do you mean that you are out-of-area but still got the opening bouns? Luck you! I did not even try because I do not want to fight with the bank later on…

Yes, I was one of the the earlier people that got in so it does appear they are tightening up their restrictions.

I’m 5 months balls deep doing 6x fiddy cent amazon reloads a month. 8 more months to go… Will I still be here? Will I still be alive? Dogs don’t live that long. All this for a Ben Franklin.

Can be ACH or bill pays… it’s not hard. Just annoying. Or, at the 6-month mark, close it, and come back for the promo again instead of waiting for a hundo.

I’m confused what ACH debit means. Can I do either a push out of Dollar Bank from Dollar Bank side or a pull from an external bank on the external bank side?

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

Either should work. I usually do bill pays at the Dollar Bank login or POS debits, but I believe any ACH withdrawal should work, other than ATM & teller. Not sure about Zelle.

I did a payment at the Amex website… shows as: ECK AMEX EPAYMENT 000x00000x BR ACH PMT

Looks like ECK is how ACH transfers code as well.

To qualify for the offer, an Everything Checking account must be opened by 10/31/20. Offer extended again.

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

This is not new news. It was reported this way in Sept. Nothing has changed.

Also, they haven’t updated the VA page. Still lists the non-existent date of 9/31.

I have some questions:
1. Anyone found that the application page is always buffering? I tried to apply for the checking account today, but the application page is buffering for hours…
2. Is this offer highly regionally specific? I am a resident of Ohio. From the application page, the bank wants you to select your county. From the draw-down menu, there are only five or six counties listed, while my current county is not listed there.

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

1. If you are waiting for hours to open a page, there is something wrong. After a minute most would have given up.
2. Be the DP you want to see. Sporadic DP’s suggest applying, and the branch you select might not notice/care you are out of footprint. Other, more recent VA DP’s anyway, said they couldn’t get approved. Very possible the (Norfolk) branch got yelled at and knows to look. Pick a branch that hasn’t been yelled at yet.

Any reason a $100 Amazon reload wouldn’t work for debit card spend? Wells Fargo deposit coded as DIR, so I was thinking all is good. Amazon reload posted on 10/7, no bonus yet. Seeing most people getting refund the next day.

It worked for me in July month and rebate posted in next business day

Still no debit card $100 refund. $100 Amazon reload 10/7, no refund as of 10/12. 🙁

Either you didn’t meet DD requirements or promo isn’t attached.

Tal

You’re right, the promo wasn’t attached. Even though I have a confirmation email from earlier confirming it was applied. Anyway, they got it fixed. Received $300 bonus today.

Any October $200 DD bonus DP’s out there? My P2 is still waiting…

“Hello Dollar, give me my dollars.”

They pay out on the first day or two of every month for DD bonus.

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

Yeah, guessing whatever they did to the account reset the DD’s… so, yeah, good times. Per terms, should have been this month, but stuck with the account for at least 6 months, so waiting until Nov to ask again.

I’m a little confused about the debit card rebate. Does it mean I need make purchases with the debit card and then they credit me $100? Or will it first be loaded with $100 for me to use with debit card afterward?

Rebate: spend first and then get reimbursed.

thanks for the data points “temp.” Congrats. Happens I’m near Hoo’ville too, and I had the opposite experience…. Applied on July 31, and was rejected on Aug 3rd…. (from a sales supervisor who wrote)

“Unfortunately, we are unable to open the account you requested because you are not within our market area. Dollar Bank products are currently available in Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, and the Virginia Beach area.”

Presume you were successful via an on-line application? Pretty sure I checked on the Norfolk branch too. (happens a family member will be in Va Beach later this week — and would apply in person if that might help…. though suspect not)
