I guess the university refund worked as DD? I kinda freaked when bonus didn’t post after all that time lol All that work for only $150… when can I safely close the account? Wait another 30 days? 60 days?

Success! Today, 6/20, I finally got my bonus for the account I opened on 1/30. I called last week, on 6/13, they gave me a reference number, I called back on 6/16 for a status update, and was told by bonus should post this week. Indeed it did, and as others have reported, they bumped it up to the $225, even though I applied when it was still $150. All is well that ends well, but man, that took a long time.

Called Santander to close/cancel my account. I was on hold listening to crappy Disney music for 4 minutes before taking to someone, total call took 9 minutes.

The first friendly droid had to transfer me to a second account specialist (with the same horrible on hold music). She asked why I was closing, and I said “I wasn’t using it as much as I thought I would”. She grunted, looked at the history, and said “It looks like you just signed up for the bonus.”

Overall, pretty painless.

Access is granted to the account for the next 2 months, but everything is closed out. Thanks DoC!

I opened on 01/21/2017
DD 02/10/2017
90 Days after opening would have been 04/21/2017
Bonus should have been paid 30 days after 04/21/2017 = 05/21/2017
I called on 05/26/2017 and I was told by a representative that my DD didn’t qualify since it didn’t have the word “payroll” in the deposit. I indicated that the word “payroll” in the deposit name or description wasn’t a required and the representation didn’t have anything else to say other than I wouldn’t get the bonus without the world “payroll” in the deposit.

I filed a CFPB complaint on 05/27/2017 and Santander responded on 06/08/2017 indicating that I didn’t have a promotional code entered when I opened the account online but they would give me a $150 courtesy credit. Santander’s response indicating that a promotional code was required doesn’t make much sense since on the application page on Santander’s website said “Coupon will automatically be applied to online applications.” I suppose the fighting over the reason why their response to the CFPB complaint isn’t accurate doesn’t make much sense since they are providing the $150 bonus anyways.

Congrats on the bonus, in spite of the incompetent phone rep and CFPB response

Thanks for the DP

Still no bonus for me. Applied on 1/30/17, account officially opened on 2/14/17, three different $500+ deposits posted between 2/17/17 and early March. Starting to get frustrated seeing data points from people in other threads who opened accounts after me for the larger promotion getting their bonus already.

My “direct deposit” from Cap360 was done late Feb and no bonus from Santander here. Since my DD was a bit later than those listed from members above, I’m still keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it will post in the next few weeks.

According to the requirements in my notes you just have to do the dd within 90 days of opening. If others did theirs on day 10 and you did it on day 75, it’s all good. 🙂
