Update to Dan’s DP regarding estatements:
I opened in branch, the first sheet in the opening packet includes:
“Plus – when you enroll all eligible accounts in estatements, you’ll receive a $10 bonus*”
“*all northwest accounts must be enrolled in estatements to receive the $10 bonus, which will be deposited within 30 days of estatements enrollment into a checking or savings account on which you are listed as primary owner. Not available for business accounts. See bank for details.”

Funded $1,000 with BoFA Biz Cash Rewards. Went through as purchase and even earned the points. Then it was refunded 4 days later. I guess Northwest tried to process it as cash advance, which I set to $0.

Wanted to provide a data point on the $10 eStatement bonus.

6/9 – Signed up for myNorthwest checking
6/10 – Was able to set up the online banking and select checkbox to receive eStatements
6/19 – $10 bonus shows up in account coded as “ESTATEMENT BONUS”

I made the first of the initial two $250 direct deposits that I’ve scheduled back on 6/14. I will check back in to provide a DP around the series of $100 bonuses.

After being rejected, despite living within 20 miles of all three listed MD locations, I did some digging. Their Wikipedia page states: “In May 2017, Northwest Bank exited the Maryland market by selling all 3 remaining branch locations to locally-based Shore United Bank” (Source:

Not sure why their Branch Locator is inaccurate nearly two years later, but could you update the post to reflect this,  William Charles ?

If you are within 50 miles but from a different state (NJ), will I be permitted to open an account?

4/1/19 Opened Account with $1000 Barclay Arrival + (coded as a purchase on Barclay)
4/2/19 Pushed (2) $200 DD from Ally Bank
4/3/19 $100 Bonus Posted

I did switch from Paper Statements to eStatements, no $10 bonus for that yet.

Also – there is a 30 day period from when you open your account until you can transfer money externally. Not sure if this is just me or not.

Now I plan to wait 10 months and make the other (2) $200 DD. I’ll probably open up a savings account to fund with $1000 on Barclay Arrival for the points.
