I did a real payroll direct deposit. The bonus posted exactly one week later.

The direct deposit was listed in account activity as:
Category Direct Deposits

I received the bonus(using a real DD from my employer) 7 days after the DD posted in my account.

I have now closed the account so I wouldn’t need to worry about preventing the monthly fees. The account was less than 3 months old at time of closing.

There was no EATF, and no issue with me keeping my $100 bonus.

I closed the account by calling them. To note, they will ask you why you don’t want the account anymore, so feel free to come up with a reason if you’re going to make the call. “No banks in my area” worked for me.

I made 10 small transactions, saw the transactions on my account, and then 3 days later, I no longer see the transactions on my account, but the payments were made to my payee… Is this a regular thing for wells fargo?

hi there – just to confirm – above it say make 10 “debit card” purchases… did you actually use the pin, or does it work with the debit card used as credit? Or were yours all bill pay? Thanks in advance…

Received this offer in the mail. The expiration date is 2/22/2016. Does the 10 payments each statement cycle to avoid the fee mean 10 online bill payments or just debit card payments?

Last year I did the ATM bonus and closed the account a few days after I got the money. There was no fee and I was able to close the account via secure message.

hmm, I got denied. Can banks soft pull a frozen credit report? Looks like they tried and I got a letter today saying they wouldn’t open.
