$100 Bonus
Disclaimer
It is my first post.

Based on my experience. I found this Bonus checking account on BF Nov. 26, 2011, and applied. The link below
http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/finance/1144562/
It requires either direct deposit into your checking account OR make 5 debit card purchases in 60 days to qualify $100 bonus.

I only deposit $50 into it and did not do anything. The $100 bonus show up today(it is not pending, just real credit).
The easiest money I have ever get.
The link is still alive, if you want to try your luck.

Details: said: To get your $100, all you need to do is open a new checking account by 10/28/11 with at least $25, then either set up an automatic direct deposit into your checking account OR make 5 debit card purchases in 60 days. Do that, and the $100 bonus will be deposited into your new account within 90 days of account opening. Remember, the bonus is considered interest so you'll receive a Form 1099-INT from us next January. Unfortunately this offer is limited to one per household.

If they ignored their stipulation of DD or debit usage I wonder if they will forgo the 1099 as well?

FYI
I helped my wife applied one too on BF, she also has $100 now. Same story, did not do anything.

In going over my statements from the February promotion, my initial deposit from my online signup was described as a direct deposit and my $100 hit the account a week after my opening deposit.

My niece opened hers in person last month, and her cash deposit does not show up as a DD. I sent her $25 with Electric Orange, and I'm waiting to see if that fulfills the DD requirement.

I'm not seeing the geographical restrictions. I'm in GA. If someone sees where those are, please let me know.

I found geographical restrictions in this link.

I think it is nice to put it in title.

FYI I linked Wells Fargo account to transfer initial deposit

Any restriction on current huntington bank members?

Also any hard pulls ?

Interesting past experience/mistakes we made with them:
We opened accts 2 yrs ago during a mini bank-o-rama with similar $100 bonus and forgot about this ones after completing requirements until too late due to online only statements that somehow stopped coming at some point ... when they had started putting acct in dormant mode and then started debiting $5/month from each acct for many months.... Luckily realized before all was drained out but lost significantly.

Recently did their $15 offer for 3 bills pays and the money showed up quickly... so quickly moved out the cash.

Guessing they have above offer now only for new customers ...

I signed up for the $100 bonus last year with huntington with a DD requirement. For some reason I could never access my account online so I never did end up doing anything with the account.
I got a 1099 at the begining of the year for $100. I checked and sure enough they gave me the bonus without the DD. But yes, they did issue the 1099.

OP, in the previous thread you mention it has the link https://www.huntington.com/100dollars/ (now defunct)
The link https://www.huntington.com/100/ asks for 17 digit promo code !

Just press 'continue' and it will take you to the application.

I opened a new account and funded it with my existing Huntington Asterisk Free Checking account. I'll report back on whether or not I get the promo money.

My ING transfer is now described as a Direct Deposit on her transaction history.

What happened in my case is that noscript in firefox had sourcelinkdirect.com javascript disabled, and it takes me to the application page, located here: https://oao.huntington.com/OAO/login.htm?spc=QJ&adspc=XJ. Still my application at the end did not go through (it told me to call a number), but that could be because of my info... or not...

I can now confirm that if you open the account online as I did, you get the bonus one week after your initial deposit posts as a 'direct deposit'.

If you open the account in person with a cash deposit, you do not get the bonus. If you subsequently push money into the account with ING (I sent $25) you get the bonus one week after the ING deposit posts.
