The amount must be maintained for 60 days to get the bonus cash. I'd rather put my in an investment account than this
Then do it.

Yup.

The earlier version of this promo had $500 bonus for $15K deposit, and that had a direct deposit requirement. The $400/$15K in this one doesn't have it.

Can anyone who did this deal in the past comment on how long it really takes to get the bonus?

Citi refused to give me $500 bonus for opened a checking acct because one bonus per life even on different product.
Pretty sure I've read of people doing Citi bonuses multiple times over the years, and they don't make any exclusions in their terms (e.g. "must not have had a Citi banking account within the past 3 years").

My offer came from Citi Double Cash, and was 25 % more cashback (2.5% instead of 2%) + $500 for $15K deposit (no DD requirement).

The $200 offer looks more attractive to me. $5k for $200 seems decent.

Captial One 360 has nothing to do with Citibank...not sure why that'd even matter.

Noob question - Can anyone suggest me what's a good service if I want to get interests on long term deposits?
I personally like high yield savings accounts. HYS are extremely less restrictive than CDs and offer very similar rates. CDs penalize harshly (as in more of a penalty fee than you would have ever made on interest) for trying to access the money before the end of the selected term. That's just the rules. If an emergency arises, your money is better off under a mattress than a CD. But if you don't need it or can do without it, it's small easy money.

There's a middle ground: no-penalty CDs, like the ones offered from Ally. A bit less interest compared to regular CDs, but you can leave without paying penalty and can get your money rather quickly.

First Foundation Bank online high yield savings 1.6% is best I can find. Until recently they were still 2% actually

outside of emergency fund and side account for rental repairs, I keep my real estate "next deal* savings fund in vanguard municipal bond fund admiral shares class. i pay 0 tax on distributions, and price doesn't fluctuate all that much. tax equivalent yield is ~ 3.5% currently for me

Is that VTEAX? I see it's also available as an ETF (VTEB) with slightly lower expense ratio than the mutual fund. Any reason not to just get the ETF?

I did all i was told to do last time this offer around, 2 years ago. I still didn't get the bonus. Please don't sign up. Unfriggingbelievable. I talked to customer service, went to the branch (we are sorry, you opened account on the net, on some other branch. We can't help you. All kind of excuses). I'm never gonna work with citi ever again. Don't say you're not told.
