Nice find OP. $400 bonus with minimal work is great!

No go for me.

Nice Bonus, but looks targeted with the reservation number requirement.

Were you able to generate a code by going to a website?

What if I had a First Niagara account that was Closed in early October 2016?

Data point http://onemagnetavisit.blogspot.com/2017/01/400-bonus-with-keyba... - it is a targeted offer. The post has the note from the bank. Sorry guys, I thought this is a public offer.

  Thanks for confirming.
I feel less bad since I closed my Keybank account only six months ago after a previous promotion.
ETA: Please update the title with "targeted or YMMV"

I closed mine a week before the conversion and had a Keybank bonus post since.

Offer not available to individuals who have had a KeyBank checking account or any First Niagara accounts in the last 12 months.

If the $400 offer is not available what is the best offer currently/

IS there another way way to get the bonus W/O direct deposit?  My dirtect Deposit didn't go through this pay period and worried next one won't make the cutoff date.
 

If I don't live in those states, can I apply online? Or is there a loop around? Such as use a neighbor address then switch it to my own? Thanks!

Darn ): Such a great bonus but I wished it was available in TX

$200 was available last year so I didn't pull the trigger on this. Sucks it's targeted but you may find a $200 offer that doesn't require a reservation code.
