Additional Slickdeals Rewards Bonus

Slickdeals is offering an additional $75 via Slickdeals Rewards Points when you open a new Axos Bank High Yield Savings account and fund the account with $250 or more after following the instructions below.

This Slickdeals Rewards Bonus is a new way to more accurately track your account opening bonuses with our partners. This differs from the Slickdeals Rebates Program and strives to solve many of the issues you may have encountered in the past. You can learn more about our new Slickdeals Rewards Program here.
  • No more submitting rebate forms or receipts.
  • Automated tracking of purchases and point statuses.
  • Faster payouts and easy redemption via PayPal or gift cards.
Note: the $75 bonus will be sent to your Slickdeals Rewards account within 30 calendar days after you've installed the Slickdeals Shopping Assistant Browser Extension, Enrolled in Slickdeals Rewards, opened & funded your new Axos Bank High Yield Savings Account, and kept the account open for at least 6 months.

To qualify for the additional bonus, please follow these steps:
  • Step 1: Install the Slickdeals Shopping Assistant Browser Extension (if you don't already have it installed) and follow the SD Rewards Prompts here (PC or Laptop Only)
  • Step 2: Follow the additional prompts in the link above to ensure you're enrolled in SD Rewards and your account is registered/signed-in. You need to have an account to track and redeem your rewards.
  • Step 3: Once you're logged into your Slickdeals account, click the the green See Deal button, or the links at the top of the post, and open and fund your new Axos Bank High Yield Savings account. If you are in Classic view, click either of the links at the top of the thread. You must apply through the link on this page in order to receive the $75 bonus.
  • Step 4: Do not close the Axos Bank High Yield Savings window prior to confirming and funding your new account. Closing the window may make you ineligible for the $75 bonus.
    • NOTE: If you do NOT fund the account with the full $250 during this process, you may not receive the bonus. Please be sure to fully fund with at least $250 as soon as you open the account.
  • Step 5: Once you open and fund your new Axos Bank High Yield Savings account, you will be able to track your order here. You should expect to receive your $75 bonus via Slickdeals Rewards Points within 30 calendar days of funding your account and keeping it open for a minimum of 6 months. The initial account opening will show as Ineligible in the Rewards Portal, as it is not associated to a dollar amount. Once your funds clear at Axos Bank, we'll get an update with information about your funded account.
  • Your Axos account must be open for a minimum of 6 months in order to receive the bonus.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: In order for us to give you credit for your purchases you must disable ad blockers or whitelist the Slickdeals Extension. Also, if you use other cashback or coupon extensions, only the one you use last will get credit for your purchase, so if you want your Slickdeals Rewards points, please remember not to activate other extensions while shopping.
The $75 bonus offer is provided solely by Slickdeals and is unrelated to any benefits or offers provide by Axos Bank. Axos Bank is not responsible for the $75 bonus.

Slickdeals is pleased to make this offer available to you. Please follow the instructions carefully to help avoid any processing issues. You generally will not see your Axos cashback pending in the portal until after your deposit clears (typically takes about a week).

Looks like a good deal if you're already looking for a high interest rate savings account. They don't as often have these sign up bonuses as we see for other bank accounts.

Please do notice that the .61% interest rate begins to decrease if you put $25k or more into the account. And that's completely normal for most of these high interest rate savings accounts.

I'll probably do this one myself.

Looks like a bad deal since SD is hit or miss on bonus cash delivery

I was going to make Axos my main bank. However, there was one problem after another. I didn't mind that there were problems and having to call to get things fixed, but the customer support people have absolutely no power to fix anything. And after they establish that they can't fix anything, they just "bump" you up to another support person they call "tier 2" that is equally unable to fix anything. Half the time you get a voicemail when you call support and they frequently won't even call you back.
I got my most of my money out of there because I was concerned if they'd be able to remain solvent with these customer support issues. I am gambling by leaving money with Axos invest (formerly wisebanyon) because I am considered a "founder" and I am not charged the fees everyone else is.

Etfcu gives 3.3% APY on 20k if you're looking for a higher yield savings account
HM Bradley gives 3% up to 100k as another option

EDIT: HM Bradley has a lot more hoops to jump through for the 3% return, including a credit card with monthly spend. at this time I wouldn't advise it and I'll be moving money out soon

I just did this deal and the SoFi one as well

the SoFi one, the SD extension icon was blue on my chrome browser extension area (top right) and there was a SD pop up box on the right side as well.

this one for AXOS, the SD extension icon was gray and there was no SD pop up box

I hope I am not screwed. I guess I'll see in a couple of days to see if everything registered in the Accounts History of SD rewards.

Axos has HORRIBLE customer service if you read some of the online reviews and ignore the usual fake or self promoting reviews imo. Add in it seems their ethics are HIGHLY questionable according to many of the reviews.

1 DD isn't too bad for ETFCU. Do ACH pushes from other financial institutions get tracked as DD? This does work for a lot of banks.
The main hassle is 15 debit card transactions every month. What counts as debit transaction. Will a Venmo/ Apple Cash deduction count? Then its fairly easy to manage. But yes it's extra work. Also have to make one online login. Not too bad. But can forget to do it.

I certainly don't want to use a debit card for transactions with almost 20k in the account.

My employer lets me split my DD into as many as I want.
Also like I said some banks consider ACH push from other banks as a DD. Most recently worked on USBank $400 bonus. I did 3x push from Marcus savings bank and got $400 bonus.
