Just a data point from my 2018 notes – “This bank sucks.” =P
My wife got the bonus for the 10 debit transactions through Amazon, but I did not for some reason… Same sign up time / spend and everything (back then.)

My account was opened sucessfully today. When I called them about the $300 promotion. They said people who received notification from USPS Mail can get the $300 bonus. This is a terrible bank!
I’m in Philadelphia PA.

So they helped me to close the account and will ship me a $50 check. Do you think I can file a complaint case with CFPB?

No, since you closed your account and didn’t meet requirements. You would have had a fighting chance if you kept it.

Thanks, @PK and @Alexander. I will pass on this one.

I just received a call from Bank stating that I need to receive the promotion mail to the home address. Rep said that they can’t honor bonus. Will cancel the account.

As I stated yesterday, my application was denied. They just gave me a call from an Indiana area code saying they could manually open the account, but without the bonus attached to it. Apparently this is only available for people who get the mailer.

The problem I see with this explanation is that when I click on the link above, it clearly says that I can get $300 for opening an S&T account. It is clearly stated for the world to see. If they are restricting it to a mailer, why is it publicly posted?

I did not have a good experience with this bank when doing the 2020 bonus. They silently placed a security freeze due to identity verification after I opened the account and didn’t tell me, causing my initial deposit to not go through. Took several attempts to remove the freeze. They assured me that this wouldn’t prevent the bonus and that I was still eligible, so I did all the requirements. In the end I got nada, nothing, $0. I followed up with them, and they said they would look into but I never heard back. Customer service was prompt and polite but in the end useless. Not recommended.

(I also had to deal with the BS $3 bill pay fee, but that shouldn’t have affected bonus eligibility.)

Is this a targeted promotion? Do you have to have received a physical mailer to be eligible for bonus? If anyone has any DP on this, it will be appreciated. Thanks.

Just my experience….applied and was denied. Got a call that I was denied due to a verification issue but they could set up my account on the phone. I said okay. The CSR then asked where I got the code I had used: “Was it from a mailer or did you find it on the internet?” he asked. I was truthful and he told me that it only is valid IF you received the mailer. I declined opening the account.

I do not see household limit anymore. Probably the terms changed when they renewed the offer. If you have P2, P3, you should be good now 🙂 William Charles

I’m in the process of receiving the $350 bonus (should be the remaining $200 within the next month) and was curious if my spouse can sign up for this $300 bonus. Anyone know if they strictly enforce the household limit?
