The Fine Print

  • This offer is not combinable with any other bonus offer.

  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

Fees will vary based on the existing account you have

Our Verdict

Rare to see deals for existing customers normally, but BBVA seems to send these sorts of offers out semi frequently. Obviously won’t be adding this to our best checking bonus page as it’s only available to targeted existing customers.

They never paid out any of those other small bonuses for existing account holders in the past year. I wouldn’t trust it

In my case I got both a $10 bonus for doing 3 bill pays and a $50 bonus for increasing my balance to $100 this past year.

Guess YMMV on these if you didn’t get the bonuses.

You got $50 for increasing your balance to $100? That’s good. They offered me $10 if I increase my balance to $1000. I am doing it, because I already have an account with them, but I have low expectations of receiving payment without a fight.

Yes, that was a nice easy $50, paid out in less than 3 month so not too bad.

Will probably do this one and try an ACH as a DD since my real DD will be tied up with another promo for $100. Not a lot of DP’s on what works but won’t hurt to try a couple.

Reminded me to check this and my “THANK YOU SAVINGS BAL INCREASE CASH BONUS $10” just posted 8 weeks later. However, have yet to receive checking one after 12 weeks. Not targeted this time.

I didn’t get my BBVA existing account bonus. Denied because I received the signup bonus for getting the account less than a year previously.

That’s where a spreadsheet for tracking this hobby comes in handy dandy.

I got a $10 billpay bonus and $50 bonus for increasing balance to $100. However I just recently closed to start the clock again, so I’ll miss out on this 🙁

I see it on the right side in my offers. Why wouldn’t they pay out? Changed my DD. Thanks DOC.

It is YMMV because I had to fight for an offer. Even had to file a CFPD complaint and then, as a good will gesture, they grudgingly gave it to me. So, I am more likely to pass on these offers from bbva.

I’ve been targeted for similar BBVA offers and not gotten the bonus. My hunch is they rely on the “not combinable with other offers” language and deny you if you’ve gotten a bonus from BBVA before.

They usually have those terms but not sire how strict they are in following them. For example, I got a $10 bill pay bonus in November 2018 and a $25 mobile bonus in March 2019 and I am pretty sure both had the same 12 month terms listed. I was targeted and I will go for it – if they pay the bonus fine. If not, oh well

I got the bonus last time when they sent out the $25 targeted offer. Of course, they paid it exactly 90 days after the last date of the requirement.

I happened to check the sign-up link. It is still allowing to open a new checking account for $200 bonus. Wondering if I should take a change as the last date was July 26, 2019. Why would they keep the link ON when the offer has expired?

Not an easy answer though, cos it requires DD commitment. Any thoughts?

I closed my BBVA account over six months ago, and I still get these “current account members” promotions – and they still allow me to log into the account and use all functionality (including bill pays and transfers). When I call to verify the account is closed, they tell me it was closed back in Jan.

They just seem to have a really difficult time breaking up – someone please them them our relationship is over!!!!

William Charles,
i was looking at the 2% bbva rewards credit card, and i saw that the reqmt was You could earn unlimited 2% rewards on all purchases with a monthly direct deposit to a BBVA deposit account, so i was looking to see if there were any bonuses on their checking accounts, and i found this one:
IT DOES NOT START UNTIL TOMORROW!!!
Offer available only between November 4 – 19, 2019.

$200-$250 BONUS

HERE’S THE LINK:

https://www.bbvausa.com/go/specialoffer/mega-blitz-national.html

the above offer is for all states except for TX, AZ, CA, CO, AL, FL, NM, AK and HI. but there is another offer for the excluded states (below)

for TX, AZ, CA, CO, AL, FL, NM use the offer below: ($200-$250 BONUS plus extra $100 for approved for a credit card, so total of $350 available)

So i guess its almost nationwide… It appears ak and hi are not eligible

It’s much worse than that… 😢😩

Just a heads up, I have found that you will get hemmed up by the auto-moderation anytime you use more than one link per post.

oh how weird. I was wondering what was going on. Seemed like deja vu cause, you know…

Missjenniferd1🦉 🦁

Yep!!

Missjenniferd1🦉 🦁

Maybe thats why he didnt see my post? Who knows. On the other thread, will didnt post the correct link to the nationwide one. He posted the link to the limited states one. Depending on the link you use, the only 2 states that are excluded is ak and hi.

Guessing with the 18 different communication methods Will & Chuck get hit with, they go with the person that they notice first for HT’s https://www.doctorofcredit.com/who-gets-the-hat-tip-on-doctor-of-credit/.

Yeah, you are right… the national link looks like it will work for my state. Coolness. Good job missjenniferd1🦉 🦁!

Missjenniferd1🦉 🦁

Except that mine is dated before his…. Not that i care.. im not that petty.. but i did mention it first. Not only that my post was complete with both offers not just the select states.

good point. odd

Missjenniferd1🦉 🦁

I actually posted it to will twice. The first time, on the third, it went to moderation for over 24 hours so i posted it again the next day without the links so it would post immediately, then i pressed edit and added the links in. Tagged will both times.

Evidently the mods dont notify will of deals posted. They probably just approve the posts. Shouldn’t have mattered though because i thought he was alerted to posts he was tagged in. Maybe not, or maybe he gets tagged in so much that he still hasnt gotten to this post.

I just think he should edit his post though on the new offer because hes got it posted as nationwide but thats not the right promo code for the nationwide offer, thats why all the posts that its not working.

In my post, i had listed both promo codes, and which code went with which states.

Gadget 🕵️

I think the first round of filtering mods are automatic, by the giant machine in the cloud, and then Will and Chuck review the logs when they get home from the daytime job to see if there are any that still need to be approved or dumped. Just guessing…. what do I know about being a webmaster? I am just piecing together my experience here and when I have contacted other wordpress sites.

Still waiting on the $50 bonus, my 90 days are up on 12/23, but just got the $10 bonus for opening their app during Oct, Nov and Dec. Wasn’t expecting it for 90 days from this month so it was a surprise.

UPDATE: Had to send them an SM including a copy of the mailer they send me since the 90 days had passed and no bonus. Heard today that the $50 bonus has been approved and will post tomorrow.
