US Bank has always paid bonuses as promised, unlike some others, over the years to me.


Thank you, Tim (and rest of FM team). I took the plunge on this since this post made it seem so easy. I had a couple of hiccups (of my own making) along the way, but the bonus just posted today. The roadmap laid out here was solid. This is the content I keep coming back here to read, keep up the great work.


What triggers the DD? Does ACH push/pull or PayPal work?

Can you open in-branch?


Thanks Tim! Any reason why I couldn’t sign my 15 year old up?


Thank you Tim!

Does anyone know which states are eligible? I couldn’t fit it.


I live in Maryland. Is that mean that I am NOT eligible ?

Very confused

Got the same. I don’t understand what that’s about.


Does US Bank pull your credit for new checking accounts? What about chex systems?

How long do you have to keep the account open without incurring early termination fees? Thank you!

Grab the bonus and then punt. It’s a rotten bank.
