I received a promo mail for a Business Checking Account from SunTrust. I have a sole proprietorship (myself only), an independent contract business in CA, but the promo mail states in fine print the following. My question is if I reside in CA do I still qualify since they sent the promo to my CA address?

The business must be registered within the U.S. with the account's mailing address in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virgina, West Virginia or the District of Columbia

  Do you have a mailing address in any of those states?

  I have a relationship with them because I opened a consumer checking account with them online many years ago for another promo but I was in CA. I have no address outside of CA. This SunTrust Business Checking Account promo is for up to $400.

Ok, but the terms of the bonus are pretty clear. So I'd say you can risk it and hope they pay the bonus anyway, or find a way to get a mailing address in one of those mentioned. But looking just at what you posted, you'd probably have a hard time arguing that you're entitled to the bonus if your mailing address on the account is in CA. For $400, maybe it's worth getting a mailing address there-but that's something you have to decide.

Why would you think you qualify for the bonus when the terms clearly say you don't? Just because they mailed it to you? That doesn't matter, and even if it did... for all they know, you might own a business in one of those qualifying states.

register your one man show for a fictitious name in your state and then register that fictitious name for an EIN. problem solved.
