For those who got the bonus, would you mind sharing what is the description of the DD/ACH push transaction? Did you have to make initial deposit in the branch before doing DD/ACH? TIA





ALLY BANK $TRANSFER

I never set foot in a branch. The bonus posted on the same day my Ally ACH push arrived.

Anyone opened more than 1 account per household?



Same question.

I opened an account last month (DD within 2 weeks; $200 posted almost immediately) by going to my local branch (1/2 mile away) with a postcard that said the deal expired June 30th . I just received another post card in the mail with the same offer code (MA code 10387) but now the deal expires July 31st. I'd open another account under my wife's name for another easy $200; but the card specifically states, in bold type - "One offer per account per household".

So has anyone had success with two accounts (under two different people) at the same address?

Edit: I can confirm:
- No hard pull - soft pull & chex systems.
- Only 90 day requirement for the account to remain open.





I'll answer my own question...I went in to the local branch and asked the question directly.

The answer - Yes you can - if the expiration dates on the two offers are different. Since my offer expired June 30th; my wife was free to also open a checking account and will get the $200 bonus since the new post card has an offer that ends July 31st.

Easy $400 for us; extremely short 90 day duration requirement to avoid early closing fee; and not even a hard pull....

They should all be this easy…

I opened my account early July. Simply called to open it with the MA code. Had to step into a branch to make my opening deposit ($50). I did an ACH transfer of $101 from EverBank. The $200 bonus automatically posted the same day my ACH push posted. Easiest $200 ever~

I was more curious to see what's written on the card. I was paid a bonus on an account opened last March and closed in August. Just wanted to be sure they don't have any clauses pertaining to previous bonuses or accounts...


  How did you close the account? What's easiest way to close it?

  Promotion requires account to be open for 90 days and as per fee schedule there is no charge for account closure. Maybe bank made changes to 08/2012 fee schedule.
