Saw a $325 checking bonus for Everyday Checking account today on 24NOV2022 and applied/approved for an account. Last received bonus Sept. 2021 so hopefully this should work again.

“Bonus Requirements:

Open a new Wells Fargo consumer checking account with a minimum opening deposit of $25 by January 6, 2023. All account applications are subject to approval.
Within 90 calendar days of account opening (the “qualification period”), receive a total of $1,000 or more in qualifying direct deposits to your new checking account.
A qualifying direct deposit is an ACH (Automated Clearing House) automatic electronic deposit of your salary, pension, Social Security, or other regular income into your bank account. Confirm with your employer or the agency or company making these payments that they use the ACH network.
Transfers from one account to another, mobile deposits, or deposits made at a branch, or ATM don’t qualify as a direct deposit.
A direct deposit made available early with Early Pay Day does not count toward the bonus requirements until it posts to your account and is no longer pending (e.g. the pay date scheduled by your payor).
Bonus Payment:

Once the 90-day qualification period has elapsed, we will determine if you have met the offer requirements, and will deposit any earned bonus into your new checking account within 30 days.
The new checking account must remain open throughout the 90-day qualification period and at the time we attempt to deposit any earned bonus payment. Please note that an account with a zero balance may be closed by us without prior notice, as further described in the Deposit Account Agreement.
You are responsible for any federal, state, or local taxes due on the bonus and we will report as income to the tax authorities if required by applicable law. Consult your tax advisor.”

Wells Fargo has started implementing early pay. I checked Wednesday on a whim and saw my employer DD in my available balance, so that’s at least a day early (otherwise I would’ve been paid Thursday due to the holiday on Friday). Interestingly, it shows as a pending transaction with today’s date, so I don’t know when it actually became available (possibly as early as Tuesday).

Sure

You used a fake DD. Don’t call!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Try a different bank or move on. Calling means they will catch on to us.

Ryan Michael Bednarski

I need to keep better record of the dates. I spoke with CS again via phone and they were able to bring up my last bonus received was 11/26/2021 making me ineligible for this promotion

mothman69

Ryan Michael Bednarski You also need to stop calling the bank about fake DDs.

Ryan Michael Bednarski

okay

No, seriously, don’t call the bank if you did fake “direct deposits”!

Ryan Michael Bednarski

okay

FYI: I know that Wise with “Direct Deposit” in the reference field works for triggering a lot of other bank bonuses, even bonuses for banks that are strict with their DD requirements, but I don’t think it will work for this bonus. I sent $1k to my Wells Fargo checking account for this bonus from my Wise account this way, and it coded as “RTP from WISE” (as in real time payment) and “Other Deposits.” All my other $1k DD’s have coded as “Direct Deposit,” including Astra, Hanscom, and TBK Bank, so I assume that any of those deposits should trigger the bonus just fine.

Has anyone else received a check for $50 from Wells Fargo because they closed your account without notice? Both P2 and I received one this week even though this didn’t happen to us (P2’s account is still open and I closed mine).

Fred

My P2 received one today, for an account that was closed in 2019. She currently has a different Wells Fargo account. I assume your P2’s letter showed the last four of the previous account?

Alex

Ah that makes sense, must be from the previous bonus go around. Thanks, was scratching my head about this.

I haven’t seen any check. I went to branch and closed out 2 month ago. P2 still has account with 0.00 in it

Got a $50 check too. I decided to research it because they include the last 4 of the acct number in the letter.

It was for my checking account that I had received the $400 bonus in early August 2019. They auto-closed for having a $0 balance in late August. I have the exact closure date in my email inbox as they sent a notice.

So, a nice surprise for letting the bank do the work for me. Seen some comments here that it looks bad to let the bank close your account, but it worked out in this case. Fred Alex

I would assume going forward, WF will not auto-close so quickly.

Fred
Fred

Thanks. I found an email that the account was at $0, a secure message confirmation the next day, and then the account closure notice four days later. I’m pretty sure P2 requested WF to close the account, but we can always use an extra $50.

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek

Yeah, guess they assume we did not want them to close the account. People that closed the normal way are not going to get these checks. And, it was three years ago – not recently.

Also, ironic, they get in trouble when they open accounts and close them. 🙂

I got a check today for $50 for the account that was closed in 2019. They closed the account within a day or two after the balance became 0. I moved to a new address and luckily the address forwarding was still active otherwise I would have never known about this check.

i got $50 check yesterday and acct # that matches one closed in 2017, weird but happy for free $.

I used the questionable $400 bonus link someone posted back in July, rather than the guaranteed $200 link that was available then. Second time doing a WF bonus (closed my old account >2 years ago).

7/25 – opened account
8/12 – Chase ACH transfer, $1000
8/18 – BOA ACH transfer, $1100
10/25 – $400 bonus – exactly 3 months after account opening

Thanks Doc and everyone!
