ATTN: THIS IS A TARGETED OFFER
- IF YOU WERE NOT OFFERED IT DIRECTLY FROM BOA...YOU WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY NOT GET THE BONUS
Purpose of this thread:
1) inform users of the deal
2) determine HOW to get the deal IF you are like me and do not have access to traditional Direct Deposit(DD) due to being self employed
Note: I Welcome anyone's input with a BOA checking account who can confirm which bank's ACH transfers count as DD and trigger the BOA $300 checking bonus. Prefer facts and NOT speculation please :-)
Note 2: I'm really surprised this data hasn't been preserved or discussed into a working database/website - most of what i found online is VERY outdated and also unreliable.
