Good afternoon everyone, I hope your weekend is going well. I just logged into my Bank of the West checking account and saw this promotion. You can get a $10 bonus when you make 3 bill payments within 90 days of account opening. I signed up for a Bank of the West checking account last month for their $150 bank account bonus, so I am within the first 90 days of account opening. Bank of the West ran similar promotions in March 2017 and again in August 2017.
I set up bill payments to my Chase Sapphire Reserve, AMEX Blue Business Plus, and AMEX Old Blue Cash credit cards. Here are the complete terms of the promo:
Offer Period – Online Bill Pay offer is only available to customers who open a new consumer checking account between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018 and use Bank of the West Bill Pay. To qualify for this one-time $10 Bill Pay bonus, you must enroll in Bank of the West Online Banking and use Bill Pay to complete a minimum of three (3) Qualifying Bill Payment Transactions from the new consumer checking account within the first 90 days after the new account was opened. Offer is not available to existing Bank of the West customers with an open consumer checking account as of December 31, 2017.
Qualifying Bill Payment Transactions – Each Bill Payment transaction must be:
* At least $10
* At least one payment sent to each of three unique payees (each with a different mailing address from the Bill Pay subscriber) for a minimum total of three (3) bill payments. (Multiple bill payments to the same payee only count as one Qualifying Bill Payment Transaction.)
* Scheduled so that each payment is debited from your Bank of the West consumer checking account no later than 90 days after the new account was opened.
This bonus offer (maximum of one (1) per Bill Pay subscriber regardless of the number of new accounts opened during the offer period) is a $10 non-transferable credit to the checking account and will be credited within eight to ten weeks after the final qualifying transaction. If an eligible customer qualifies in multiple new checking accounts, the account with the most recent bill pay activities will be credited the $10.
To be eligible for the bonus, the checking account from which the Bank of the West Bill Pay transactions were made must remain open at the time the bonus is credited to the account. Any Bill Pay subscriber who meets the qualification requirements but whose checking account to be credited is no longer in open status when the credit is paid will not receive the bonus.
The promo seems pretty straight forward and there is no link to register for the promo. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great weekend everyone!
