HSBC Direct Account Opening Bonus Received

Written by Nickel - 3 Comments

Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays Bank.


A commenter on my post summarizing the HSBC account opening process mentioned that he got started about a week after we did, and that he had already received his $25 account opening bonus. Thus, I logged in and checked our account… Sure enough, the bonus was credited to our account shortly after I wrote that last post, meaning that the entire process is now complete. All in all, it took twenty days from the day we applied to receive all of the paperwork as well as the bonus (although we had access to our account considerably earlier than that).

  1. Same here. I think I started the exact same time as you and my account opening bonus appeared the day before yesterday… along with the thousands and thousands of dollars I transferred out of Emigrant Direct!

  2. Day 19 for me since opening the account & no $25 bonus yet. NetBank has a $75 bonus right now on their SuperValue checking account. Check out http://www.netbank.com/pro342.htm?PM1=overture for details.
