I completed the requirements on 9/29/2023 – I reached out to BECU on 12/26/23 and the representative had no knowledge of the promotion or how to look it up. They claimed that the “passport bonus was only for mortgage accounts” and I told them they were mistaken.

They said that when they typed in the URL that described the bonus, they could not find anything (I presume the representative was not good with computers, though). I will follow up after 120 days from 10/1 to share if the promo did hit or not.

I completed the requirements in the first 3 months. The $150 bonus was posted to savings exactly 4 months after the first deposit.

Anyone have data on what worked as qualifying transactions? I was doing 10+ internal transfers (checking savings) monthly and have seen no bonus. I got an e-mail today saying they’re extending the timeframe to 150 days, so I still have time to make it work. Their use of commas and semicolons in the fine print make it a bit confusing. My next step was to try ACH transfers back and forth to another bank and hope for the best.

I had 10 debit card purchases every month since Nov 2020, and still havn’t received the bonus yet. Not sure if anyone have received the bonus from this deal.

I just got the bonus this week. I opened in November as well. It takes a while to post.

Does anyone know what the “selected associations” they refer to on their site as qualifying you for membership actually are? I could not find an actual list anywhere.

“selected associations”
Not a member of one of the above associations? No problem! You can join online with UWAA, WSUAA, KEXP and NWCUF and then return to BECU and apply for membership.

This is by far the best, solid Institution, Credit Union to keep open. I’d had the account with them since 2007. I am not planning on closing just to wait and get a bonus in the future.

They give you a generous credit card limit the longer you’d been with them. Also, no holds on large “credit card” balance transfer offer checks (I had used a lot in 2007.)

The interest rates were lowered to .18% on checking and .96% on savings a few months ago for Advantage accounts.

The Nov 1, 2020 rate schedule has 1.0% on the first $500 in both Member Advantage Checking and Member Advantage Savings. Anything over $500 earns 0.01% and 0.02% respectively.
