Title: $250 to open a Wells Fargo Checking Account
Post by: ShlockDoc on January 09, 2017, 08:12:44 PM
Get $250 when you open a new Wells Fargo checking account and make either ten debit card purchases or $500 in direct deposits.

https://www.wellsfargo.com/250offer

Eligibility:

All consumer checking accounts, including non-interest-earning checking accounts (except Teen CheckingSM) are eligible for the bonus of $250. The prepaid Wells Fargo EasyPay® Card is not eligible.
You cannot be:
A current owner on a Wells Fargo consumer checking account
A Wells Fargo team member
A recipient of a consumer checking bonus in the past 12 months (limit 1 bonus per customer)
Bonus Qualifications:

Open a new, eligible consumer checking account with a minimum opening deposit of $25 (not including the bonus) by February 17, 2017.
Within 60 days of account opening, either make 10 purchases/payments with your Wells Fargo Debit Card or establish a qualifying Direct Deposit of an accumulated $500 or more to the consumer checking account opened for this bonus offer.
The 10 debit card purchases/payments must be from the primary linked consumer checking account opened for this offer.
A qualifying Direct Deposit is your salary, pension, Social Security, or other regular recurring monthly income, electronically deposited to your consumer checking account by your employer or an outside agency. Transfers from one account to another or deposits made at a banking location or ATM do not qualify as a Direct Deposit.
Offer available in all Wells Fargo branches or online at wellsfargo.com/250offer.
Offer cannot be paid without a valid U.S. taxpayer ID

This is an exclusive, nontransferable offer. I suspect we will see DP on my blog on whether this is actually enforced in the next few days.

No credit pull, can fund up to $50 with a credit card.

That explains it! I was wondering why you only posted a $100 offer, and not this one. But why do you say that? The page OP linked to looks like it's for anyone.

We did post the $250 offer, we just mentioned the targeted language. I think it might be targeted because of the bit that says "This is an exclusive, nontransferable offer". Other people disagree, I still think it's a good chance of getting the bonus but I think that language is worth a mention and I'll wait for DP of people not targeted to get the bonus before I add it to our best bonus page.

how much is the monthly fee?

2.The Wells Fargo Everyday Checking account has a monthly service fee of $10. The monthly service fee can be avoided with any one of the following each fee period: maintain a $1,500 minimum daily balance; $500 or more in total qualifying direct deposits; 10 or more posted debit card purchases/payments from this checking account (this includes posted debit card purchases or posted debit card payments of bills from this checking account, but does not include transactions at the ATM); or linked to a Wells Fargo Campus ATM or Campus Debit Card. You also receive a $5 monthly service fee discount off the $10 monthly service fee when the primary account owner is 17 through 24 years of age.

From the language, is seems pretty safe that anyone applying and meeting the requirements will get the bonus. Doesn't say anything about being targeted. Just says it's an exclusive nom transferable offer.

In regard to making 10 transactions per month to keep the account fee-less would sending ten payments of 1$ via cashappp or sending ten amazon gift cards worth 1$ each suffice?

yup or keep $1500 in the bank that way you don't get a $10 a month fee

True, but the $500 DD, or 10 debit purchases which you are doing for bonus anyway would also avoid the fee for you.

1. Open a new paypal account and link this account to it.
2. You can load money into PP by buying ppmc cards from a drugstore (500/day), or you can send money into your paypal account from another account. Those are your only options to having a paypal balance, there is no other "loading" to paypal.
3. Once you have $500 in pp, withdraw it.

Note: $500 not $1500.

Alternatively to 1-3, you can wait for the debit card and do 10 transactions.

This is really one of the best banking bonuses in a while imo, when factoring in value, ease and speed.

This is what it says:
Please sign, date, and return the Consumer Account Application included in your account information packet (which will arrive in 3 business days).
Once we have verified your information, we'll send you the status of your application by email and we'll follow up with a letter within 2 to 5 business days of our decision.
Once your account is approved and we process your opening deposit, you can access your account within 24 hours at any Wells Fargo location.
Your debit card will arrive in 5 to 7 calendar days. For your security, your Personal Identification Number (PIN) will be mailed separately. If you already have an existing Wells Fargo debit or ATM card, we will link your new account to it. If you have multiple cards, we will link it to the card most recently used. If you do not want your new account linked to your existing debit or ATM card, please call 1-800-869-3557.
If you need debit card access sooner, you can visit any Wells Fargo store to request a temporary 30 day instant issue debit card.
If you ordered checks, you'll receive them in 10 to 14 calendar days.
Set up Direct Deposit. Have your money deposited automatically into your Wells Fargo checking or savings account — it's convenient, fast, and safe.

You dont need to sign and send anything back. Ive opened 4 of these for me and my family. You should get an email with account info within 2-3 days. Debit card comes in a few days. PIN comes seperately the day or 2 days after. You can do 10 $1 Amazon reloads to qualify as purchases. Once you have PIN you can set up online banking. Bonuses have posted within a few days of charges posting.

I don't believe you can open an account for someone under age 17. Unless it's linked to your account in which case it wouldn't qualify for the bonus.

Got a slew of emails yesterday 2/6, still no welcome kit. And no instructions in the email to set up online banking. I need the debit card for that I assume?

It's a reasonable question.  A PP deposit from someone else is more similar to a direct deposit.
Because its clearly not a direct deposit whoever sends it. The reason why it works is because it codes as a DD. Therefore it doesn't make a difference
