Thanks for posting on this promotion. I have some additional details and warnings about potential fees in this October blog post. It's nice to see this promotion is still active.

Without the $25 initial funding having even reached my account yet, I've ALREADY received the $100 bonus after processing my Chase trial deposits for setting up ACH. Unheard of -- a bonus only two days after opening the account! [And my employer's payroll Direct Deposit -- I set it at $20, for easy withdrawal -- doesn't even start for at least another two weeks]

SO: So far, so good. Better than expected, in fact . . .

But thanks for the warnings about transfer fees -- and marketing harassment -- in your referenced post and its comments, Ken. An M&T rep already left voice mail for me yesterday, at work, asking for a call back to discuss something "important, but not urgent." [Hmmm. Important to whom, I wonder]
