It's a checking account, so you can withdraw as much as you want whenever you want (as long as those funds are in the account).

So say I put in 100k, will I earn 10k AA miles a month?  And can I withdraw 100k at any given time in one shot?

Yes and yes (you might trigger a flag if you write 100k check out of the blue, so you might want to notify them first, but this is true of any bank.

Yes, not a problem.

Would anyone know if there is a business checking that would get you miles?

if i used my visa card on the 29th but it didnt post until the 1st or second, what month is that transaction counted as?

here is the answer,
also it sounds like they are warning not to do the 12 $1 transactions, anyone had a problem getting their points?


Thank you for your e-mail. Visa check card transactions are counted for the month that the transaction posts to your account. So if a purchase made on July 29th doesn't post to your account until August 1st, then is would be counted as one of your "August" transactions. Please note, mileage awards are part of a marketing program designed to attract customers who choose BankDirect for their ordinary day to day operating account. The program requirements are easily reached by any customer with normal purchases and bill payment. We reserve the right to deny mileage requests for any obvious attempts to meet the technical requirements of the program without normal activity. If you have any additional questions, please contact client support at 1-877-839-2737.

Thank you for your business,
Client Support

Yep, tried that already a couple nights ago, no response from Dan. I sent him a PM as well.
I assume he's unable or too busy.
Or... maybe he wants people who are fighting to reach a million miles jump in.

In the meantime, I'm losing potential miles each day that goes by while my money is sitting around waiting.

Does anyone know if this will still work after the mileage change scheduled for December 1, 2011?

Thanks

Same here... still hoping for a referral. 
I can try a different group, I guess, like FT, but I'd much rather give the opportunity for bonus AA miles to mishpacha    :P

theres no reason why it shouldnt
unless they find that alot of people are pulling their money and they need a better incentive, but i dont think that will happen

You should still get miles but it won't count towards lifetime
