If I do everything online and electronically, does it really matter what sate I am in? My stae is not on the list, so I guess I am out, but if I never need to go to a branch, is there still a way to participate and get the free gift?


You need to list an address on the application, which must be located in one of the states mentioned. I dont know about Key but most online a/c applications do some form of address verification --- so you cant just fake it.

Signed up for two Keyscam offers (cash and multifunction printer), fulfilled all obligations, and never received products even after multiple meetings with managers and regional managers. Even had the nerve to claim printer had shipped but couldn't provide me with a tracking number. O'rly?

Take that for what it's worth.


my family has completed this several times without any problem recieving the items. at least 4 ipods, 1 gps.


So you're giving me red for telling my personal experience with this bank?

Quality.



For spreading misinformation that is not true if you follow there rules.

Did this last year for the wife and I with no issues. Luckily I cancelled the accounts in February so we are eligible for another go. I just applied online, and at the end of the app, they gave me my account number and routing number, already went to HR and set up the DD. Compare this to the Citibank offer from a couple months ago, which was one huge headache after another. Took a month and a half to fax them proof of address, have them finally pull money to fund my new account, and actually send me a debit card. I almost feel bad for a second taking advantage of a company with such great customer service, but then I get over it

You have a right to your opinion.I removed the red.

First misinformation, now opinion? Please read the thread about last year's offer. There were also other members who were assured they met the requirements (only when they emailed or called), yet KeyBank failed to deliver their iPods within 90 days as promised. I personally had to wait 108 days before mine showed up. ComputerWiz and binaryinfo didn't get theirs until January as well. I don't know if Number1KentuckyFan ever got his.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it was a very small number of customers. No bank is perfect. I'm also sure most people won't have a problem this time around either. But should you happen to fall through the cracks, prior experience has shown you may have to wait a while with little to no communication. Hopefully that's not the case.

Offer not available to individuals who have opened a KeyBank checking account in the last 12 months

Looks like everyone that got the last offer falls into this...including me.

By the way everyone, Apple will probably release a 5th gen version of the iPod Touch at some point later this year. However, nothing in KeyBank's terms says they have to give you the most recent version available. If you get the 5th gen, congratulations! If you get the 4th gen at that time, be happy with it...and please don't come back here and say you're going to send them nasty letters, report them to the BBB, and/or sue them because of it...

Edit: This post is to help people avoid expectations that may not be met, because the above scenario did happen during the last offer (thread).

I put in an NYC zip and it says to open account at Branch. I called the only branch in NYC and they said it is only an online promotion. Anyone from NYC with any luck?

From the fine print.. "Direct deposit transactions are limited to payroll, Social Security, pension, and government benefits."

Does KeyBank count ACH transactions as direct deposits?



http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/finance/432086/




According to that sticky, KeyBank does accept Paypal and HSBC direct transfers as direct deposits.

But the rules for this offer explicitly say: Direct deposit transactions are limited to payroll, Social Security, pension, and government benefits.


Given those rules, do you still think Paypal and HSBC would be accepted as direct deposits?

I ask because it would be a major pain in the butt if I did 30 total purchases, 3 direct deposits, and waited 90 - 180 days
only to find that they don't accept the Paypal deposits as direct deposits. There are a lot of rules and limits to this offer so if someone is going to go through all this trouble they better send the ipod as promised.
