Get $125 when you open a popular checking account with Popular Bank. Make (3) ACH direct deposits of $500 and receive $75. Make 5 online bill payments and receive another $50. Very easy requirements! Paypal or any other outside agency should be fine.

Must live in one of the states in the title. I didn't receive an alert when I submitted my application, so I assume this is a soft pull.

FREE access to Allpoint(R) ATM network of over 38,000 ATMs nationwide
Free Debit Card
Free unlimited check writing
No minimum balance required
No monthly service charge
No direct deposit requirement

What service do you use to alert you if you received a credit pull? I have the free credit monitoring service due to the target breach and wondering if I need to set up an alert for that or if it automatically sends me a message.

If you subscribe to credit monitoring services you can set alerts. I checked all three credit reports. The only inquiry I saw today was a soft inquiry on my TU report, but it wasn't clear if it was associated with this bank. It has to be though, because I haven't applied for anything else.


Side note: this bank operates different as for as opening an account. They're going to make 2 small deposits in your funding account( can't use credit card) which you'd have to verify along with a code that they email you. Once you receive the 2 small deposits, you have to go back to the website provided and finish the account opening process. At that time, they will draft the initial deposit.

I'm not sure why anyone would thumb this deal down either unless they unfortunately don't live in one of the required states. This is the first bank that I've seen make the requirements very clear. Along with the 5 bill payments, all they want to see is 3 ACH credits, so Paypal is good to go!!

Tried opening, got asked for "Which of these roads is closest to your address on" twice. One was easy enough but for the other one I have no idea... Asked me to call to discuss further, oh well.

Not much work. You can pay the same payee 5 times.

This bank opened and immediately closed my account, without explanation. (They did promise to send me a letter of explanation, but I have received nothing.) There is nothing negative in my credit history except a number of recent bank account openings -- so perhaps they were trying to screen out people seeking the bonus.

Did they close your account after or before the initial deposit ?
