So I signed up online through the UFCU link. I completed real DD and did 2.05 amazon gift cards to meet the 15 required transactions within my statement cycles for each month but nothing was posting. I reread the T&Cs and saw that it should have posted after each condition was met. Since I did organic DD I at least wanted to see what was going on even if they didn’t give me credit for the debit transactions. I know we’re not supposed to call the bank but I did and the guy I talked to said I did meet all the necessary qualifications to receive the bonus. He put me on hold and checked with another department and came back and told me that I didn’t sign up under the bonus! Before he let me speak though, he said they would honor it and I should see the deposits in my account. I thanked him very much and let him know that I did indeed sign up under the offer because I was called from the bank after signing up to discuss my options for receiving the debit card and I went to the bank to verify when I got the debit card. So Idk what happened but I’m very appreciative that they honored my account.

Don’t waste your time — they require a branch visit even if you open online.

“In order to complete the review process for your application to open a checking and savings we need to verify your identity. This is necessary to safeguard you from identity theft.

Please visit the nearest branch to speak with a loan officer or manager with the following information to finalize the opening of your new account:

o Copy of this letter
o Photo identification (ex: Driver’s License, passport, or any U. S. Government issued ID).
o Secondary identification (ex: Any government issued ID, major credit /debit card, or student ID)”

Everyone in the family including the kids signed up and scored bonus last year. Earlier this year each of us received a 1099-INT but for different amount (e.g., $150, $240), although we all received the same bonus and real interest earned was effectively zero. Then we all received corrected 1099 showing $0 interest. Truly confused here. Anyone else received corrected 1099 for $0 as well? What do you plan to do regarding tax filing?
