I need to fund with $1k using my credit card. Can we open accounts online? or we have to go to a branch? TIA.

Yes, you can open account online.

Beware of old DPs. I tried today using a Chase card and it declined because I lowered my CA limit. I tried funding online and in branch and both times were rejected. And yes, my card is working for all other purchases.

Not bad. I interned at Yahoo! (R.I.P.) in the summer of 2006 and the on campus ATMs were from Star One so I decided to open an account with the $50 minimum deposit. Never ended up using it but kept the account anyway. Fast forward 10 years and I’ve been back on the east coast since fall of 2006 and my account balance now stands at $63! Haha.

Hopefully this lasts until the Sapphire Reserve is launched and I’ll refer my wife, mother, father and sister, pocket the $720 bucks and the 100k UR from funding their accounts with the CC.

Usually it takes several business days for bonus to show up if you’ve fulfilled all requirements. You can get in touch with banker that was assigned to you and ask why it takes so long.
