Will ACH transfers from actual business checking accounts trigger SoFi’s DD requirement?

My employer uses a business checking product at a local credit union and I think it’s essentially just ACH.

Anyone know if the “must be first deposit” is being enforced?

The first bank (in my limited 30-bank experience) to refuse accepting a Stripe DD from my employer as a DD. Asked SoFi to reconsider and they still refused to accept it citing this paragraph from T&C:

“Qualifying Direct Deposits must be made from the enrolled member’s employer, payroll, or benefits provider via ACH deposit. Deposits that are not from an employer (such as check deposits; P2P transfers such as from PayPal or Venmo, etc.; merchant transactions such as from PayPal, Stripe, Square, etc.; and bank ACH transfers not from employers) do not qualify for this promotion.”

Wasted a DD. Pulling my money out now and closing the account.

Very glad I saw this, hopefully it stacks with the running $100 for $1k dd offer 🤞🏻

Yes, they are stackable. I’ve received both SB & DD bonus for P1.

If I got the SoFi invest bonus, can I get the SoFi money bonus via swagbucks as well?

has anyone been able to churn the offer? ie closed my SOFI account last year, but they still have my SSN on file and apparently you can only have 1 account with the SSN

@B You can churn SoFi for the Swagbucks offers but you can only earn the $100 DD bonus once.

Chris

Is this true? I will have to give this a try.

Yes. It used to be that you could churn the $100 bonus (I did it twice) but that appears to no longer be the case. However, you can still close your SoFi account and reopen using the Swagbucks link and get that offer. I did this about a month ago and my swagbucks went pending as soon as my DD hit.

How long do you need to wait before reopening? Bertrand

DP – Went through MyPoints offer posted in comments (couldn’t pull it up myself) for 27,500. Pushed from Chase biz/USBank personal and biz, none counted as DD. Real $1,000 DP hit today and points are now pending. Also used a different e-mail for SoFi, but it was my first money account opened with them.

Astra Transfer of $1,000 triggered the bonus.

It looks like Astra doesn’t let SoFi Money account to be used as an “authorized” account but only “connected” account. How did you make Astra transfer to SoFi account??

Hmmm that must just be you, shows up as “authorized” on my end! What happens when you log out and back in? (I saw that worked for someone else getting an account to say “authorized” with Astra)
