$100 Checking Account Bonus at Bank of the West


Bank of the West
Bank of the West has a checking account promotion in which you can earn up to $100. As is typical with these bonuses, there are a few hoops to jump through to earn the full $100:
  • $25 for opening a new free checking account
  • $25 for using your debit card 10 times
  • $25 for signing up for direct deposit
  • $25 for using online bill pay
Some of the important small print includes:
  • Checking must be opened by November 1, 2008 with $100
  • Offer available only for accounts opened in-branch
  • Eligible debit card transactions must be signed for and posted to your account within 45 days of account opening
  • Establish a monthly direct deposit of at least $100 to your new account. First one must take place within 60 days of account opening
  • Limit of one $100 bonus per household per year
  • Bonus may be revoked if the account is closed within the first six months of opening
  • Bonus reported to the IRS on Form 1099
Branches are located throughout the Western and Midwestern states including Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1934 (FDIC Certificate # 3514).

made few of the last 20 required transactions on 10/30 however since they posted on 11/1 they are now saying I missed the deadline and will not get the ipod touch. According to the requirement I COMPLETED 20 transactions by 10/31. Is this fair and anyone know if I can do anything?
