I don't understand how to get the "steady save" option on-board. Can anyone clarify before I pull the trigger on this?

Is there a hard credit inquiry?


Hard Pull
Disclaimer
No bueno...

no go for cali

I did a similar offer a while back, and I believe it was indeed a hard pull. They did pay out on the entire bonuses, even if the promo was designed to extend over many months like this one for what it's worth, but previously it was $250 I believe.

No go for AZ...8(

Does an Ally push qualify as Direct Deposit?

Now the deadline is June 30th.

Data point: Opened a checking account in February under a similar promo ($150, no savings component). Bonus promised by June 30th. It posted today.

How did you satisfy the DD requirement?

Gov't payment.

Extended to August 30th.

Anyone know if any external banks qualify for direct deposit? Last time I did this I used a real DD, but don't have the flexibility to change it at the moment.

Where did you guys see that it's extended to August 31st?

Anyone know how long it takes to get the money? My account has been open for about 6 weeks and I've met all the requirements. Not sure when I need to send them a secure message to PAY ME! Thanks!

Met all the requirements in May and still haven't gotten anything.

Here's the relevant fine print in the offer e-mail which I still have:

Bonus will be deposited into your qualifying checking account by 10/31/13 and will be labeled as "Balance Builder Bonus."

  OHMYGOD!!!! TRIPLE B!!!!! 

Update: $150 bonus paid out 9/18.

Edit: I don't see any restrictions/fees on immediately withdrawing the funds and closing the account.

My $175 bonus posted 9/18 as well. I had almost forgotten about the checking because I was so focused on their wonderful 10% card. Guess this was the icing on my delicious vanilla cake.

when I opened my account in branch, the rep told me I should keep the account open for "at least 6 months." I got this far by not rocking the boat, so I don't mind having a few hundred parked for a few more months with the occasional debit purchase.
