Will opening a student account qualify for the bonus or does it have to be a regular one?

I wonder if they perform a credit check to open a new account with them.

Looks like its for new customers only.

I believe only Everyday Checking accounts are eligible.

Not sure, but I'm not seeing anything in the rules/terms about needing to keep open for a set amount of time. I'd assume you can close it immediately after getting the bonus.

They will probably do a soft credit check and will most certainly do a Chex Inquiry to make sure you haven't left other bank's checking accounts over drawn or bounced checks or other things of that nature.

It doesn't mention if the customers who closed their accounts in the past are eligible or not. I had a checking account with Wells Fargo that I closed about three years ago so I am not a current customer. Am I eligible to apply?

Yes, you are. You're not a current WF checking account customer.

Basically, we will have to make at least 35 purchases/payments during 105 days of waiting to avoid the monthly fees.

Or you could deposit more than 1500 dollars in the account and let it sit there to avoid the monthly fee until you get the bonus.

It seems like they want to snag people for $10 a month on minimum usage. I have no problem leaving $1500 in an account, but I despise Wells Fargo and a hundred bucks is not enough to get my business. Give me a thousand to maintain ten grand for a year. I'll dance with the devil for that money.
