Promo code required, no promo code = no $250 bonus

Flagstar Bancorp, Inc. (NYSE: FBC) is a $17.7 billion savings and loan holding company headquartered in Troy, Mich. Flagstar Bank, FSB, provides commercial, small business, and consumer banking services through 99 branches in Michigan and 8 branches in California through its Desert Community Bank division.

Looks like you have to apply in person at a local bank or have received a promo code in the mail. Frown!! Useless for most of us!!!!!!!!!!

Fine, need SSN or ITIN , but it's needed

An ID number can be a social security number or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). To get an ITIN, you will need to fill out a form with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Or other government issued ID. I have a friend who was here on student visa without ssn/itin.

For 99% cases where such offer is given by bank, then need SSN. I was just trying my luck to see if I could skip giving SSN, get benefits and close account later
