You can do recurring ACH transfers from one bank to another, but I do not know how they define "direct deposit". I do this transfer monthly to pay bills. Usually, we know of "direct deposit" as payroll related.

I also assume that retirees can do this with their IRAs/401ks that require distribution.
They can have their brokerage allocate a $ amount monthly to their bank account.

UPDATE: Reading T&C...
To receive the $250 bonus, customer must make direct deposits totaling $500 or more, monthly for three consecutive calendar months by 11/29/19. Two or more separate direct deposits in a single month that add up to $500 qualify. A qualifying direct deposit must be payroll, Social Security, pension or other government benefits. Non-qualifying direct deposits include transfers from Bank of the West or Bank of the West affiliate accounts or any credit from Bank of the West, or person-to-person transfers using a mobile payments service such as Zelle, or deposits made at a branch or ATM.
