Finally got my $150 bonus after filing a complaint to BBB. It was said the promo code was not attached to my acount firstly. After showing the screenshot during the application, I was told transfer from Discover didn’t count as DD. Finally, I tried to contact BBB as some DPs have received the bonus using Discover transfer. I received two phone call this Monday and was told “the $150 will be placed into your account as a credit until the bonus is paid”. Thanks all!!

How did you share the screenshot with them? I didn’t see any secure message.
Thanks

I used the live chat and the representive provided a email address to receive the screenshots.

Are you sending $1K each month from Discover to prevent the $4 fee?

Wayne

I’m doing Amazon reloads to avoid the fee.

Eric

I am thinking of trying to downgrade the account as they offer an account with no fees. How long do you think I should wait? Are you going to try also?

i got bonus amount $150 deposited on my first paycheck deposited .Now i just needed to wait for 5 months to closed the account

Eric

There is a $4 monthly fee if you don’t have $1K in DD each month. Have you been doing that?

Robert

Any DPs for fake DD waiving fee?

Eric

William Charles,

There is actually a $4 fee for the MyStyle checking account. It is waived with $1000 of DD each month or a $2500 account balance or 10 debit card purchases each month.

Has anyone done the AZ link who wasn’t from AZ? Didn’t see where it said it was for AZ only.

I might have P2 do that one and hopes to avoid HH limit.

The AZ link isn’t expired, so I would remove the expired tag. The main offer link can be reached through the Google cached version at https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Q4EF7A3fiVoJ:https://www.macu.com/cp/checking/150-mystyle-checking-bonus+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us and the link on that page still pulls up the application https://secure.macu.com/account-opening?productId=52&promoCode=MACU150. I applied for that just now since I’ll be able to do a DD in the month that the account is processed, if it’s open at all. I took screenshots of the offer on there.

Nice find. I just applied through the link also. It showed the promo code being applied automatically near the end of the application but who knows if it will actually work.

Davis

Ya I’ll just say I clicked the link when it was open, then got busy at work, then went to do it. I have a crummy web browser so the screenshots suck but they say the offer expires Halloween.

I hope it goes well for you. After your signed up. You might want to chat or email them confirming the code is applied and state you have a screenshot of the promotion and attach it. I’m curious if they will honor it given the application date surpassed the date the offer was pulled. I hope they do.

Davis

No response from them to me yet.

Someone called me and left a message and wanted to ask me some questions.

I’m not going to call them back to tell them the obvious.

1) they have a communication problem
2) yes I live out of footprint

Beware.

Applied Sunday and got two calls from them this morning. The CS was polite and asked a few questions: 1) we are based in UT, how would you qualify for membership (I live in CA)? Luckily I saw a previous post and said the three magic words ‘American Consumer Council’. 2)why would you apply for our product? I replied with an honest answer – their welcome bonus. Then she stopped and said that they had already pulled the promo off. She looked around and mentioned that around 11:30 am this morning, their marketing department told them that they might not honor the promo, yet no final decision has been made. She asked me if I would like to proceed, even though there is a chance that I won’t get the welcome bonus. I said yes – she went ahead and asked a few other questions regarding how I am going to use the account. Eventually I got to the point to sign the document, make a deposit, and open the account.

William Charles the $150 is dead, and wasn’t supposed to be offered but somehow was. I chatted with a very nice agent and provided a screenshot of the offer and with the promotion code successfully added during the application process and this is there response:

Thanks for your patience. I just got off the phonewith my Marketing team and they were telling methat unfortunately that promotion wasn’t valid yetand accidently got pushed out. With that, being saidthough I am sending your account information overto my Marketing team for them to review as we areattempting to still accept those for people who didsee and sign up for that.

FWIW: will be using a real DD and verified I have alerts, online access and login from phone and PC, estatements and plan to follow-up after real DD posts..

Seems like all those screenshots Might pay off just gotta do some heavy lifting first.

Can you share the screenshot? Forgot to take one when I signed up.

I can’t share mine because it shares my SPI. Try stating to them what the offer code was and see if that works.

I talkes with CSR just now. She said the promotion was not added to my account. Then I showed the screenshots during the application. After talking to her manager, the promo code could be attached to my account. The $150 will not be deposited until I receive my first DD and first statement on my account. Will see what happened next month.

AllenW

Nice, they must of added the promo to my account because a $25 push from Discover posted today and a minute ago the bonus posted. While the trial deposits posted prior to chat yesterday.

The alert I setup was for a 150 deposit. So that was kinda worked out.

Kelly
Kelly

Congrats~Hope we could get this bonus like you!

Wayne

AllenW I did on online chat to confirm the promo was added as this was her comment “I do see the MACU150 promo has been applied and it’s scheduled to be processed on 10/5/2020”. So maybe I’ll get it?

AllenW
AllenW

Make sure you have the alerts setup and e statements. I suppose it should BC mine did the next couple days. If it doesn’t I would go to their support page and send an email follow up.

I say that because I chatted and sent an email follow up. As soon as I got an email stating the issue was resolved I received the bonus. The chat was a day earlier but I suspect the email was what got me the bonus but it’s hard to tell.

The link seems dead…

It does indeed. The AZ link is still working, though.

Has anyone else signed up? Favio did you ever get the bonus. I think they changed their payout dates because 2019 DP show them posting bonus rather quickly.

Favio

Yes, bonus posted the day after I opened the account – apparently the trial deposits from linking another checking account did the trick!

AllenW
AllenW

Are you OOS. My trial deposit didn’t trigger it. I’m OOS so maybe that matters. I applied after hours on my phone and the website said the bonus was applied.

Kelly

I haven’t received the bonus…. Opened this account on 09/26/20.

Kelly

Really???Have you added promo code then? AllenW

Wayne

AllenW I applied a few days ago and yesterday I was contacted by a nice professional CSR. She asked why I was opening the account, did I realize there wasn’t any branches in my state, and how was I qualified. I explained the bonus pushed me over the edge to have another checking/savings account. I told her I belong to ACC and do online banking. After about 10 minutes my account was opened. She hadn’t heard of the bonus and couldn’t see it, but manually added it manually.

Oh interesting. Just of been marketing reaching out.
