Thanks!  If you click the #1 next to Serve, you'll see the datapoint DoC is referencing.  You'll see that this is the experience of one guy who applied for a Santander account in April of last year and got his bonus on August 29.  Serve worked for him.  If you feel confident that Santander is still honoring Serve, then good. 


You may want certainty or near-certainty, however, which is hard to come by without using the methods indicated in the fine print of the offer: paycheck, SS check, etc. 


You may also wish to read through all the comments that are being made by readers following DoC's review.

What worked for others in the past might now work right now, as banks keep cracking these down. So it's a YMMV.


You can only be sure with pay checks.
