My employer allows up to 6 DDs. I do some accounts with real DD and some with ACH transfers between banks. I generally try ACH push first. If it works great, if not I add it to my DD list. It's all done online, so no one at corporate HQ has ever been on my case about all my DD switches. It is a large employer, so I figure I'm lost in the weeds as far as they go.

lol did they have that rule before you came along, or did you cause them to enact a 6 dd limit
I emailed M&T from the secured message center (I have 1 credit card with them). They told me that I am not eligible for the bonus because of the zip code that I am located in. When I click on the OP's link and enter my zip code, account packages do pop up but no mention of the $100 bonus (on the page where it's listing out the different types of accounts).
