Received mine a week ago, exactly 90 days from account opening. Does anyone know if TIAA is churnable? I got both the checking and savings bonus for 400. However, I actually really like them as a bank. If you link external accounts with them, they send trial deposits but don’t pull them out. May come in handy in the future for prepaid cards.

DP – Was not targeted, didn’t have any accounts with them
11/28 – opened account
12/1 – funded $15k from Ally ACH
2/26 – $250 bonus posted “Balance Cash Reward” (90 days post open)

Will probably keep the account open through another statement cycle and then close out.

Thanks as always DoC!

3/30/17 – closed today via phone. Agent made it easy, you can close with 3 options:

1 – transfer funds out (max of 5k / day *from* TIAA, presumably you could do all of it via ACH pull from another bank)
2 – mail a check, but this was with a $5 fee (possibly because it was a high balance, still had all $15k in the account
3 – answer some credit bureau questions and they would transfer the full amount today to an external account I had saved in TIAA (in my case, Ally), and then they would close it for me after the transfer cleared in 2-3 business days.

I chose #3..

William Charles – could you add to the “how to close” post?

I deposited 15k and my wife deposited 15k thru mobile deposits….I opened the savings a/c over phone and my wife over online (both of us using bonus code)…

I received IRS Tax withholding form to fill up my signature and SSN..I just completed and mailed it this evening…When I called today and talked to a CS Rep, I have been told that it’s intended mainly for customers who have retirement accounts and there is no guarantee that I will get $250 bonus even though I am eligible as I met all the requirements….

My wife didn’t receive any form to fill up…She called in few minutes after me and talked to another CS Rep and she got the message that she is eligible and she will receive bonus 7 to 10 business days after 90 days (02/27/17) and there is no need to fill up any form!!!!!

After opening, I got a letter saying that if I meet the requirements, which are simple ($15k for 90 days), I’d get the bonus. The letter was very clear about their rules, which I appreciate.

I did the initial deposit via phone when I called to open the account. They sent a signature card in the mail.

If they don’t pay the bonus and you met the requirements, call the CFPB.

Thanks for updating this. It’s such an easy bonus now! What a difference from the last one I did, HSBC…

I have opened the saving account yesterday online.
I need some help to deposit money from my external bank, us bank.
Is there some charge from US bank to transfer money to TIAA ?
And also for the transfer out money from TIAA to my US bank ?
How can I do that ? Just transfer out money from TIAA or should ask money from TIAA in US bank system ?

Thanks.

So to be clear, you all are saying you can have an interest checking account open from their other offer and open up a savings account with this new offer and get this savings bonus? They kept telling me that will not work as savings bonus will not actually post as can only do one offer per person. Not correct?

This is an important question. I’d like to know too.

I have the same question since I opened a checking account with them for an offer (still open and offer received a couple months ago). I sent them a secure message through their online banking maybe drawing attention to me, but I used a legitimate direct deposit for the checking bonus so I’m not worried. Plus I’d be giving them $15k for a time…

If they say I’m not eligible, I will terminate my relationship with them until the next offer.

They replied fairly quickly saying that I am eligible, so I’ll probably go ahead and open the savings account as well.
