Good morning everyone. Yesterday afternoon, I got my Chase business checking account statement and there was a big message on the front page of the statement. Beginning on November 19, 2019, if your Chase checking account is compromised, Chase will provide a replacement checking account number. This avoids the hassle of closing your existing account and opening a new account. Personally, that still sounds like a huge hassle if you have your direct deposit, bill pay, and other financial accounts linked to your old (compromised) account. One positive is that your linked debit card will continue working with the new account. Hopefully you are never in this situation, but at least your debit card will continue working, so you have access to your money.
Good morning everyone, greetings from Vail, Colorado. I’ve received a few comments recently on my blog and through Twitter about a post I wrote a few months ago: Chase QuickPay Changes: Need Chase Checking or Liquid Prepaid Card Starting August 19, 2016. Even though the change went into effect 2 weeks ago, most people are now noticing the change when they try to send or receive a monthly payment via Chase QuickPay (rent, mortgage, or other bill). Basically, Chase no longer lets you use Chase QuickPay unless you have a Chase checking or savings account or Chase Liquid prepaid card (high monthly fees). For more information about the negative changes, please read the above post.
Good evening everyone. There is no hiding my love for bank account bonuses. Doctor of Credit got me hooked and there is no cure (except more
cowbell bank account bonuses). I recently shared my experience with US Bank’s checking and savings account bonuses and I just received my $300 bonus for my Chase Total Checking account bonus (read about the sign up bonus at Doctor of Credit).
Good morning everyone. Last month, I wrote Cannot Apply for US Bank Checking Account Online with Frozen ARS/IDA Credit Reports, Must Apply In-Branch in which I explained that US Bank was not able to approve my online application for a bank account because I have my ARS and IDA credit reports frozen. Stefan @ Rapid Travel Chai experienced the same issue. After calling US Bank to inquire about the issue, the rep advised me to apply in-branch for the US Bank Power Up Checking Account. The current checking account sign up bonus is $125 after receiving 1 direct deposit of $500 or more and making 2 bill payment transactions in the first month (full details at Doctor of Credit’s website).

Good afternoon everyone, if you don’t read Doctor of Credit’s many daily posts, you are definitely missing some great cash back and MS news. He is also my go-to source for bank account bonuses and I recently started taking advantage of some of the bank account bonuses available to CA residents. If you are skeptical about bank account bonuses, please read DOC’s post Common Bank Bonus Misconceptions + Why You Should Give Them A Go. Currently, US Bank has a $125 bonus for opening a checking account, which you can view here.
If you sign up for a Gold Checking Account, the $10.95-$12.95 monthly fee is waived just for having a US Bank credit card (I have 4 US Bank credit cards open at the moment). If you do not have any US Bank credit cards, you can sign up for a Silver Checking Account and have the $6.95-$8.95 monthly fee waived by having a money market account and $1,000+ in direct deposits or $1,500+ monthly minimum daily balance.
