Does anyone know if they do a Hard or Soft pull on your Credit Report ?

Hard pull; has to be governmental or payroll after tax DD as California Boosters they hate capitalist deposits. Note Bear symbol--not a good one in the equity market. Must keep large balance to avoid service charges. Not available to those previously having checking account. T and C need to be read until you understand every word or else!

Maybe this is obvious, but I would assume that a direct deposit of your tax refund would count as a, "payroll, Social Security, pension or other government benefits?" Seems like a pretty simple way to boost your tax return a little bit assuming that would qualify.

And as the other poster said, a few years ago, Bank of the West had its offer open to more states. I'm in Illinois and was able to open an account and get a bonus.

Sovereign Bank claimed a tax refund does not count when I did it with them, because it was not recurring. I know it's a different bank, but just giving people a heads up.

A couple years back, this was my experience:
- No CC funding allowed. - No hard pull on opening. - ACH from Schwab counted as DD.
