I opened a account for myself and spouse. Can I open an account for my child or the bonus is for adult accounts only?

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.

I got my welcome kit already. Any idea why I wasn't debited $25 from my bank account which I was funding from?

I applied Thursday 1/26 and I'm waiting on the email and the debit card. I'm just being impatient. Hopefully today/tomorrow.
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?

No, but be aware that it will come out of earned income credit, and it may make it or break it for some peoples tax bracket or tax credits

I didn't say that, but if you make the Cheshbon, it's not $250, but far less

Related Q for a couple banks I got bonuses from but not 1099s. If I don't receive a 1099 and am having trouble getting it from them, do I still have to report it? I am assuming yes.

I didnt realize that everyone here is in the EIC bracket. It never ceases to amaze me that EIC is considered an income source and counted on like a paycheck.

I applied the end of January, and got the approved pending verification email.
Now they emailed me that they cant complete my application and I should come in to a branch to complete it....
Did anyone have something like this? What info do they want?

does that mean we won't get the bonus if not targeted?  :(
Still unclear, if you signed up before that language was added then you should be fine.

In your welcome email it should say if you are eligible for the promotion
