https://www.wellsfargo.com/jump/c...ct-test-a/


Here's how to qualify for your bonus:
  • Open an Everyday Checking account online (from this webpage only) by July 26, 2019.
  • Make a minimum opening deposit of $25 to fund your account.
  • Set up direct deposit and receive a cumulative monthly total of $3,000 in qualifying direct deposits into your new account for 3 consecutive months.
Your $400 bonus will be deposited into your new Everyday Checking account within 45 days after eligibility and bonus requirements have been met.
This is an exclusive, online-only offer and not valid for branch or phone account opens. See below for additional details and important information.


Our Everyday Checking account comes with innovative features:
  • Secure online access to your accounts. Use the Wells Fargo Mobile® app and simplify the way you bank.2
  • Account alerts. Stay on top of your account activity with alerts that allow you to track your account balances, debit card transactions, and more.3
  • Overdraft Rewind®. Sign up for direct deposit to take advantage of Overdraft Rewind. When an ACH direct deposit is received by 9:00 am, the bank will automatically reevaluate transactions from the previous day and, if your direct deposit covers them, may reverse overdraft or returned item (Non-Sufficient Funds/NSF) decisions and waive associated fees.4









* How to qualify for the $400 checking bonus:
Eligibility Requirements:
  • Everyday Checking is the only eligible account for the $400 bonus when opened online. If you do not qualify for Everyday Checking but do qualify for Opportunity Checking®, this offer can still be applied to the Opportunity Checking account.

The monthly service fee can be avoided with any one of the following each fee period:
  • Maintain a $1,500 minimum daily balance
  • $500 or more in total qualifying direct deposits

3.Sign-up may be required. Availability may be affected by your mobile carrier's coverage area. Your mobile carrier's message and data rates may apply.
4.The bank will reevaluate transactions from the previous business day that resulted in an overdraft or returned item if we receive an electronic direct deposit to your account by 9:00 am local time where your account is located (which is noted on your monthly statement). The bank will calculate a new available balance, including your pending electronic direct deposit (less any pending debits), and may reverse the overdraft or returned item (Non-Sufficient Funds/NSF) decisions and resulting fees from the previous business day if your electronic direct deposit will cover them. The bank receives most direct deposits through the ACH network before 9:00 am. Overdraft protection transfers/advances and fees from the prior business day are not reversed with Overdraft Rewind. Other deposits, such as check(s), cash, or account transfers received after our initial nightly account processing are not included in Overdraft Rewind. Direct deposits include your salary, pension, Social Security, or other regular monthly income electronically deposited through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network by your employer or an outside agency.

Save yourself the trouble and find a higher interest rate, better customer service, less sneaky company to deal with. (They are now charging a savings account fee of $5 if you don't transfer $25 or more every month).If you tell them you don't want overdraft protection, no problem they will continue to add it on their own. Find a credit union to deposit cash in and get a capital one 360 or similar bank for nationwide services.

Wells Fargo has become synonymous with corruption, malfeasance, and ethical rot. They are a criminal enterprise doing business as a bank. Approach this institution at your own peril.

They must have run out of identities to steal, looking for fresh Social Security numbers now.

FYI - for all of you who don't have direct deposit or are self-employed. VENMO payments to yourself (figure it out) count as ACH direct deposit in many bank's eyes and will help waive fees or fill promotion terms.

Just need a little clarification. Does it need $3000 per month for 3 months straight or is it $3000 total across 3 months?

$3k seems pretty high. I would imagine the lower income people might have a problem meeting that limit.

Why would banks want to attract lower income people?

Just pragmatically speaking.

It seems that is a no based on the terms:

A qualifying direct deposit is the customer's salary, pension, Social Security, or other regular monthly income electronically deposited through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network to this checking account by your employer or an outside agency.

Non-qualifying direct deposits for purposes of this offer include transfers from one account to another (for example, transfers between your own accounts, or person-to-person transfers using a transfer service such as Zelle®), or deposits made at a branch or ATM, or through mobile deposit.
