Just got the $225 bonus with $1001 DD

12/25/2020 Opened account
12/31/2020 $1001 Venmo Deposit
1/15/2021 $1001 Real DD
1/19/2021 $1000 withdrawal
Bi-weekly $1 real DD to keep account free
3/30/2021 $225 received “Bonus Payment”

Will keep account open for another 30 days then close. Not sure if venmo actually worked so I used a real DD to be sure.

Unrelated but I will note that I got a call from my local branch more than once a month “checking in on me” and seeing if I needed anything. Considerate but got annoying after the second time

Anyone here received $171 bonus? Account opened 9/28 and $1000 transferred from Chase on 10/06. Bonus posted on 12/29 but only $171. So weird.

You opened the account with a foreign passport?

Anyone know the best way to close account? Just got the $400 bonus posted but it is literally impossible for me to visit a branch as I’d have to drive a couple hundred miles

odd data point re: WF “DD” Opened 3 accts 5 months ago. Wife/son/me. We used WF checking as DD, exactly the same transfer for all 3 accts. One acct got bonus. It coded as WF DD. Other 2 did not. Coded as transfer on the other 2. Exactly same deposits. called to inquire and was told we did not meet DD requirements. Wrote letter to close accts. Xferred funds back to WF. Waste of time.

Wells Fargo is hit or miss for DD. Opened 2 accts for the 225.00 bonus in July. Opened 1 acct 8/10. Called in this AM..no bonus on accts opened in July due to “did not meet DD requirements”. Rep was very nice. The WF entries state “Transfer”. So I missed out. So we always have to check the coding on these “DD”. However, the WF deposit for the 8/10 acct coded as DDA..IFI etc. These always work. Don’t know what they changed but all 3 WF deposits were made the same way via online transfer and from each named acct for each person. So check the WF “DD” with Santander.

does anyone know if Santander considers a transfer from robinhood as a direct deposit?
