They look at chex system. Will not allow you to open if you have opened a lot of bank accounts that year. For me this number was 8

FYI – There’s a $50 referral through Referlive. But, it does NOT stack with the $100 checking bonus. I was denied the extra referral bonus. Just a heads up.

If you want to compare, my real DD coded as “ACH CREDIT ‘My company name’ PAYROLL 190930.” Transaction type: DEPOSIT

The last part of digits refers to today’s date that it posted (9/30/19).

Was at a Stop & Shop in CT and saw flyers that this bonus was extended until 11/1/19 at branches inside Stop & Shops in NY and CT. Must open in branch, mention promo code FALL19, have DD totaling $1500 or more within 90d.

A few corrections: They’ve changed the weird “90 continuous days” language to “within 90 days of account opening.” If you open Plus Checking, there’s no monthly fee. You can’t have had a People’s personal checking account within the last 180 days (up from 90 days). That fits in nicely with the 6 month period for the early termination fee, but given some of the comments, it’s probably not churnable. There’s a limit of one per household.

Still cumulative deposits of $1000 or one DD of at least $1000?

They have a referral bonus of $50 for the referrer and $50 for the referree, so you can effectively get around the household limit this way. It’s also a better deal since there’s no direct deposit requirement and they don’t send a 1099 to the referrer.

Can the referral be stacked?

Appreciated anyone sharing the screenshot of the “within 90 days” instead of “90 continuous days”

They now have a $300 Bonus. I may not do it due to the fact there aren’t a lot of datapoints about direct deposits and i’m not sure the $1500 needs to be done at one time:
