[Salt Lake City] Bank of America $300 Checking Bonus

Bank of America is offering a checking bonus of $300 when you open a new checking account if you live in select counties in Utah (Davis, Morgan, Salt Lake, Summit, Tooele, Utah, and Wasatch). Unlike a previous Phoenix promotion it looks like you can open this online. This is the same bonus we’ve previously blogged about that often shows up when logging into your Bank of America account online. This is one of the best checking bonuses if you do live in the area. Valid until February 28, 2019

SLC is a city, not state, so I think you mean it’s limited to those counties in Utah.

Got this message when applying online: “we’re unable to open your account online because we need more information to verify your identity.”

My in-laws live in one of these counties. What would be the risks of using their address to open this account and then changing the address after the 90 days?

Not much, but you would first want their address on your EWS report (change your address to theirs on an EWS reporting account like Chase, PNC, Huntington, BBVA, Bank of the West, Wells Fargo, PNC, US Bank, etc)

Additionally if you already have a bank of america online profile, change it there as well

Yes! I feel like there are a ton of bank bonuses exclusive to where I used to live (IL), so it’s nice to see a new one in Utah. 🙂

Account was opened successfully but closed the next business day. Had to call in to gather details, at which point the incredibly unhelpful rep stated the account was closed due to ID verification reasons. Absolutely only option to verify was to go into a branch with two forms of ID, of which there are none in UT. When pressed, they said that they didn’t know which forms of ID were valid, and that the promotion probably wouldn’t be valid if I went into a branch because they were all out of state.

This also occurred to a friend who applied on the same day. Quite the unpleasant experience and an unnecessary Chex hit.
