Re: Wells Fargo new account $250 bonus UPDATED! - Now thru March 3rd

Thank you all for explaining it to me, I hadn't ever had a bank mention signing and mailing stuff back before. I'll be sure to sign an mail back when it comes... I may keep the account I'll qualify for the $5 a month discount on the monthly fee since I'm 19...

I got some emails today welcoming me an they've taken the initial deposit off of my CC so all seems to be good...

Re: Wells Fargo new account $250 bonus UPDATED! - Now thru March 3rd

Just wanted to report my credit just showed up today. 

 

I opened my account online on the last day of the promotion, my opening deposits were not processed till the week after the promotion ended.

 

I also had no code or invitation I just used the link in this thread. I did open both a checking and savings account, my $500 direct deposits have not even gone through yet just 10+ debit card transactions.

Well, since I can't keep chasing CC sign-up bonuses after all the new accounts and such...this seems like a fun new train to jump on.

 

I bit on Wells Fargo 3/8 and then saw the blog on DoC and went with the Citadel bonus as well.

 

The WF app was conditionally approved and had a statement that the $250 bonus was tied to my application. Received approval the following day and am awaiting the debit card.

I called about the issue with mine.  Evidently, my work has a retirement account in my full legal name and I had registered with the name I go by and have all my other bank accounts in.  I was told they have another deal going through March 24 to go online and reregister in my full legal name.  When I went online, I couldn't find it.  I chatted with someone online and was told to call them back so I did.  When I called back, I was told that it was changed to being only for those that receive an email or letter in the mail.  I have found links where it was online until atleast the 9th but it's not working now.

I got lucky with mine. Applied online and I was told that I would receive an account package in 3 days via snail mail that I needed to sign and return. Almost a week passed and the package never came so I went to the branch to open the account. The banker opened the wrong account "Preferred" instead of the "Everyday" but she was able to attach the promo code. I made ten $.50 reloads to my Amazon gift card and a couple days after received the bonus. A few days after the "Everyday" checking was opened without me signing any paperwork so I did the Amazon trick a second time and received the bonus again. I was afraid they would claw it back so I immediately transferred the $500 out of WF.
