How can I close this checking account?
Do I have to call any phone number?
Or is there something like an online secure message center to send a request?

You can use the Secure Messaging feature on the desktop site. Login -> Support -> Secure Messaging (may take a few seconds to appear)

Did anyone get a tax statement from them? They are telling me they wont be reporting it because I didn’t earn at least $10 in interest. I’ve explained I earned a $400 bonus and they just keep saying I didn’t earn enough interest. I know I need to report it regardless but this just seems insane to me.

I called in and got the same thing. I’m going to report it just in case because I have no idea wtf they’re doing.

did anyone try to convert to an ESSENTIAL ACCOUNT (which is much easier to maintain) after receiving the bonus?

This offer is still listed on the best bonus page. I see after checking here that it is actually expired.

Has anyone tried to open this account using an address in an included state but have another account (mortgage) with them in a not included state?

Opened account for myself and P2 on 7/6. Started pushing 1000 a week from Chase Biz to both accounts, then sending it back with Zelle.
Bonus posted on both accounts 10/15.
I did manage to get my account locked with the amount of Zelle transfers, but I can still make payments with my debit card and pay off credit card balances, so I haven’t called to get it unlocked. I might do that now that the bonus has posted since I’ll have to continue transfers to keep the account fee free. I didn’t want eyes on the account before the bonus posted since I was using Chase as my DD. P2 didn’t have their account locked, but I am trying not to transfer money out right as soon as it hits the account. Overall, fairly simply bonus, especially since I was able to sign up myself and P2.

A bit too sensitive are you Robert? I guess anyone stating the obvious makes them rude.
