Hey doc, just went to branch and the $300 bonus that they are offering for employees associated with first bank business’s is available to people that open a business checking account together with personal William Charles

They just sent out an email regarding a Refer a Friend promotion. Both parties get $160. They provide a form to print out, so the referred person may have to open in branch.
“Refer A Friend offer must be presented at account opening, or online promo code must be entered during online account opening to receive this reward. ”
No promo code is provided, so the form seems like the only way to do this.

Does FBFC send out 1009s? Does anyone know how’s the exact name as it should be entered in turbotax?

I did chat with a rep online and she did say that is was only for veterans, I didn’t probe further, but just a heads up

Deal expired but it looks like they are still offering $150 bonus + $150 to a local school. It’s a so-called “mascot” bonus. Google “mascot First Bank Financial Centre”. You only have to complete 1 out of the 3 above requirements.

Have to do this in branch?? Has anyone (who didn’t get an email or mailed) tried just using promo code online?

I was in the area for business yesterday so I decided to check for bank bonuses in the area and found this one. Someone else bit me to the punch. Anyways since I was close to a branch, I drove there and opened an account plus the CD. Thanks everyone.
The interest on the CD is 2.58% to be exact.
Everything else appears correct.

Just a note, they did auto-close my account for having a zero balance for 40 consecutive days. I asked them to reopen immediately. Most likely ineligible for bonus now, but we’ll see. D’oh!

Beware: You have to go in-branch to close the account.

There is a “savings bonus” of up to $100 here that’s still going on. Here’s how it works:
• FBFC automatically moves $1 from checking to savings with every PIN or signature-based debit card transaction
• FBFC provides an introductory match of $1 per debit card transaction for the first 30 days, then an ongoing match of $0.10 per debit card transaction for a total up to $100 annually.

Also, the match is paid on 1-year anniversary date of account opening; not paid unless account is in good standing.

To be honest, I don’t know how much worth the effort this is – you basically need to do 100 debit transactions in your first month (I’m not even going to argue about trying after the 30 days for $0.10/transaction) but maybe if you use the techniques pointed out here (https://www.doctorofcredit.com/bank-accounts/how-to-meet-minimum-debit-credit-transaction-requirements/) and have a little bit of patience, you could get your $100.
