What are the benefits for waiting until 4/1?
New account offer:
- Earn 1,000 miles for each new Mileage Checking Account or Mileage Money Market Account opened.
Additionally, earn 1,000 miles for every $100,000 in the initial deposit.
- Earn 10,000 miles for estabilishing payroll direct deposit into a Mileage Checking Account. *
- Earn 5,000 miles for using BankDirect's bill pay service. *
- Earn 5,000 miles for using your BankDirect Visa CheckCard. *
- Earn 1,000 miles for referring a friend when they open a Mileage Checking account.

Those are better offers then what they currently have.
Although we don't yet know what the restrictions they mentioned are.

Monthly earning opportunities:
- Earn 100 miles per month for every $1,000 of the collected balance in your Mileage Checking Account up to the first $200,000 on deposit. Earn an additional 25 miles per $1,000 for collected balances over $200,000.
- Earn 50 miles per month for every $1,000 of the collected balance in your Mileage Money Market Account up to the first $200,000 on deposit. Earn an additional 25 miles per $1,000 for collected balances over $200,000.
Is that prorated to 1 mile per $10 or are the miles  only issued per $1000?

+100

This is important because people don't usually maintain their balances in multiples of $1,000.

Effective 04/01 you will get the AA miles at the same rate 1 mile per $10 per month (12 miles per $10 per year) for balances up to $200,000.  For anything over $200,000 you will only get 1 mile per $40 per month.
Dan,
Does that mean it's prorated or were you just breaking it down for us?

how long does the direct deposit have to go on for before they credit
the miles?
How often does the bank card need to be used?

Do they check your credit when opening an account?

So check their website :)
Otherwise i think the signup bonus is the same but now you get 5k for using their visa card 12 time for 3 straight months.

Thanks. I meant the Direct depo etc.- I want to do some research on it.

If I end up needing a referral, that email is pretty easy to remember ;).
