I was not able to open an account online. They asked me to come into a branch, but there are none in my state (Ohio). Bummer 🙁

Used Fido, Sofi and NFCU for deposits, it appears they all counted as DD. Received bonus on day 91 from account open date.

I just closed my wells checking account recently. Does everyone know how soon I can open it again to qualify for the bonus?

be careful with the fee schedule, the fee period is based on account open date looks like, not the normal end of month date

No bonus posted yet. All the transfers above have a category of ‘Direct Deposits’ when I click the + sign next to them, and also show up on my monthly statements as direct deposits. Since others have already gotten their bonuses with similar timing, should I call and ask them to look into it, even though I didn’t have a legit DD?

91 days is not until tomorrow (5/20). Bonus should post tomorrow.

Nice date calculator:

I thought it might be because of the 90/91 days requirement, but it seems like many others here have already gotten their bonuses with “DDs” posted after mine so I was concerned that something I did caused the missed payout.

It’s not the DD date; it’s the account opening date. 😁

It’s not always like clockwork at exactly 91 days… usually sometime within a week after that date or so though. And yes, from account opening, not the DD date. mangorunner Ed

I didn’t do the $25 opening deposit, they never asked me? Is it waived for me because I’m under 24? Or did I miss a step? I was still able to open the account though and it’s been 2 months now so nothing bad has happened.

Got the “We need a bit more information”, annoying.

I recently opened two bank accounts and I used a google voice phone number. Maybe that is enough to flag it

Update: I re-applied today and got approved!

Only thing I changed was
– added middle initial
– used non-GV phone
– said “yes i want a debit card with custom design” (i had original clicked no debit card)

Most likely all of them did. Look it up yourself:
click the + sign to left of posted transaction
then view category description. If it states
Direct Deposit then that transaction qualified.
Pretty much any deposit qualifies. Even the micro
deposits when the account is linked state DD.
