T&C claims you have to be targeted, but they didn't ask for any info from the mailer.

Nice, thanks!

I was looking for a banking bonus to connect with Cash+ CC, cross-linking the threads:

It's definitely targetted. How's US Bank's track record on awarding bonuses to uninvited customers?

Do they hard-pull or soft?
How soon can the account be closed?

To avoid monthly fee:

Monthly Maintenance Fee5

$6.95 with online statements, OR
$8.95 with paper statements

Options to Waive the Monthly Maintenance Fee

Combined monthly direct deposits totaling $500+, OR
Average account balance of $1,5006

I got a targeted offer before without being targeted, but I had to fight for it. Yes, it was a hard pull.

So, is this targeted or NOT targeted? Also, do existing US Bank account-holders qualify?

bold is mine

The promo code is right there on the right side of the page: CK0930A. So it comes down to how strict US Bank is with awarding bonus to non-targetted applicants that's the chief concern.

How about existing account holders?

Haha, I doubt it!

Do they accept ACH as a Direct Deposit?

I went to the local branch and manager told me they'd honor the promo if I'd bring in the printout with a code; I'd try this week.

I took the promotional page that I got in the mail in the bank and the banker did not put the code in the system. He said there's no place for him to put in, is that true? He said it's only for applying online. Now what?

I've got one for $200. it says to enter the code online or give it to a banker by phone/in person. you're probably going to be assed out.

Uh oh.... Can i call them and tell them the situation? I just applied today and the banker even took a copy of it.

yep. hop on that shit asap and get the name of the CSR who provides help in case you get stiffed and need to contact corporate.

Bump, offer expires in four days.

Did anyone got the bonus yet?

Not sure if this works, tried changing 150 to 200 on the link and the webpage opened up...however, doesn't let me open an account on IE7

So, can anyone confirm if people that were not targeted could get the bonus?

We have a new $200 bonus going (http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/finance/1222364), need to hear at least one success story
