* You may earn a $300 reward if you open a new Virtual Wallet with Performance Select. You will only be considered for one reward amount, which is based on the product type you open.

To qualify for the reward, the new checking account must be opened online via the "Apply Now" links on this web page OR at a branch using the appropriate coupon between 07/01/2016 and 08/31/2016 and the following conditions must be met within the first 60 days: (a) qualifying Direct Deposit(s) must be received and (b) at least 10 PNC Bank Visa Debit card purchases must be made. Your checking account must remain open in order for you to receive the reward, which will be credited to the eligible account within 60-90 days after all conditions have been met and will be identified as "Cash Trans Promo Reward" on your monthly statement.

A qualifying Direct Deposit is defined as a recurring Direct Deposit of a paycheck, pension, Social Security or other regular monthly income electronically deposited by an employer or an outside agency into the Spend Account of a Virtual Wallet with Performance Select. The total amount of all qualifying Direct Deposits credited to your checking account must be at least $5,000 for Virtual Wallet with Performance Select. Credit card cash advance transfers, transfers from one account to another or deposits made at a branch or ATM do not qualify as Qualifying Direct Deposits.

A qualifying debit card purchase is defined as any debit card purchase made at point of sale using your signature or PIN, or a purchase made electronically or online using your debit card number, including recurring payments.

New account will not be eligible for offer if any signer has signing authority on an existing PNC Bank consumer checking account or has closed an account within the past 90 days, or has been paid a promotional premium in the past 12 months. If multiple accounts are opened with the same signers, only one account will be eligible for the premium. For this offer, signing authority will be defined by the customer name(s) and social security number(s) registered on the account. Offer only available to residents of: AL, DC, DE, FL, GA, IL, IN, KY, MD, MI, MO, NC, NJ, NY, OH, PA, SC, VA, WI and WV. Offer may be extended, modified or discontinued at any time and may vary by market. The value of the reward may be reported on Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 1099, and may be considered taxable income to you. Please consult your tax advisor regarding your specific situation.

----------------

PNC has an alert system that will show you if you receive a direct deposit. This is how you can verify that your transfer is coded as dd, and not as some other type of deposit. Look under "alerts" or "alert history" in your online account to see how your deposit is coded.

Ya, that would've been sweet; but I've been looking at bank promos for awhile on here and never saw that one. How long ago was that?

Anyone know why it keeps saying I need to apply in branch when I try to submit an online application? I've had a PNC account in the past, so not sure if that is the reason.

Just set up an alert on PNC when there is a DD and you can find out right away.

I already posted that these guys are a$$holes

Sorry to ask you again but can you elaborate on your case.. was it a genuine DD or an account to account transfer? I dont get when you say it wasnt deposited correctly.

Thank you for agreeing with me. It was genuine DD from pemployer. They said the money went to the wrong acc, but since inception of the account I spoke to multiple ppl they said everything is set up correctly and I just need to wait 60 days to get the bonus. 75 days later they denied me, took them 2 weeks to investigate and rejected me.

Do you know where I can post to let other ppl know how disgusting they are??!!

Go here and file a complaint, type up everything that happened.. most probably you will get your bonus (which one did you sign up for 200 or 300)
