$400 Bonus for Opening Checking Account With Wells Fargo (For New Customers)


Link to Offer :
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.

  • We will deposit the bonus into your new checking account within 45 days after meeting all offer requirements.
  • The new checking account must remain open in order to receive any earned bonus payments.

1.The Wells Fargo Everyday Checking account monthly service fee is $10. Minimum opening deposit is $25.
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
    • A qualifying direct deposit is a direct deposit of your 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.

    Not included
    • Any transaction at an ATM (Wells Fargo or non-Wells Fargo).

  • A linked Wells Fargo Campus ATM or Campus Debit Card.

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.

Just need a little clarification. Does it need $3000 per month for 3 months straight or is it $3000 total across 3 months?
.
Seems to be $3k each month for 3 months or $9k total according to how the terms are written.

Within 150 days of your account open date, receive a cumulative monthly total of $3,000 in qualifying direct deposits to the checking account opened for this bonus offer for three consecutive months

So it can be multiple DD each month as long as they add up to $3k a month, and you do this for three consecutive months within the first 150 days.

This should be easy enough. I can have my paycheck deposited and then auto-withdraw out to my normal checking account, right?

Looks like a great deal to me. The fraud issues were from a year or more so ago. They've fired everyone involved since.

Wells Fargo had pretty much been restructuring their image since that incident.

I did a credit card sign up promo with them a couple months ago. No issues. Got the rewards back in a timely manner.
Oh look it's a Wells Fargo shill. Didn't realize those still exist

Yes, as long as it's at least $3k a month.

Ok, that was my understanding too. Thanks for confirmation.

The next thing I am wondering is if the $3k needs to stay in there after it gets DD'd in. I'd like to pull them out right after it gets DD'd.

Looks like you need to leave at least $1 in it. Don't take it all out

Debating on doing this, but I don't like the fact that I have to direct $1500 of one of my paychecks into this account.

Also, the last time I did this for the $250, I didn't get a 1099-INT from them. When I asked them about it, they said that I didn't have one. Is it a new thing where these bonuses are not reported?

Bonuses under $600 are never reported, AFAIK

If we get into the technical wording of how the terms are written, you would think they would say a minimum cumulative monthly total of $3000 in qualifying direct deposits. The way its written is saying that if you deposit more than $3000, that would be disqualifying. laugh out loudlaugh out loudlaugh out loud Sorry, you deposited $3001 dollars....NO BONUS!
