My problem is I don't want to open another checking account just to find out I'm not eligible for the free $100...if anyone knows if US Bank counts it for sure, I'd be much appreciative. And to someone who asked earlier, yeah, I'd either have to take the piece of paper and go in a branch of it says call up.
So I dont think you can tell from the words they use when it is posted as "Direct" is part of there name and does not stand for direct deposit. Only reason I know ING is counted is I used to get 900 thank you points always after I started to do transfers into my Citibank account I started to get 1200 points. And Citibank counts Direct Deposit as a service towards the 7 products you need to max points each month.
The last update to this list appears to be almost 6 months ago. Not sure if all are still good based on some of the threads I read. BOA does count my emigrant as I switched to it last month no problem. I also have citi have recently switched to emigrant, when the statement cuts at the end of the month I'll know

BofA records this as an ACH credit.

I would like to know this as well since i just opened a Citi checking account today to get the $200 promo. I believe HSBC doesn't charge any fee for pushing or pulling funds from your savings account and this would be another good option for a direct deposit since the APY is much higher for HSBC then it is Citi's online savings account.
Do HSBC Online savings transfers into Sovereign Checking account count as Direct Deposit? Anyone can confirm? Also, this thread is all about Paypal and ING (assuming savings)... HSBC Savings the same or no?
I noticed that this wasn't mentioned in the summary, so I wanted to relay my experience. I was able to successfully use ACH from my HSBC savings account to my Principal Bank account (student checking) to count as direct deposit for their recent DD bonus.
Bank of New York counted transfers from my HSBC account as DDs for purposes of their $50/$200 account opening promo. I used the HSBC Bank-to-Bank Transfer functionality.
Edit to respond to AugustFour: They were each about $20, give or take a few dollars. I could probably have done less, but I needed to move funds into account to fund my debit card transactions (do 5 and get $25 bonus).

hi, anyone got any idea whether e-trade accept paypal? do you know of any bank which allow non us resident to apply a us bank account by using passport?? and we can apply online without travelling to us
I was considering opening a Bank of America "My Access Checking Account" (no balance requirement for service charge with direct deposit)..However, i prefer not to use my pension payments for the purpose of fullfilling the direct deposit requirement.
I have accounts with USAA (checking and savings) and i could link USAA to Bank of America for external transfers... Does anyone know if a "push" from USAA to Bank of America once a month, would cover me for the direct deposit requirement? (has anyone confirmed actually doing it?)... 2nd question is: does Bank of America charge any fee for an ACH transfer out from them (like when i would "pull" from them to USAA)??
