We hope above table will be useful for you especially for those have just signed up for a bank bonus and wondering when you will receive the bank bonus payout? This could also be a valuable metric for you to see which bank bonuses post immediately or as soon as possible versus bonuses that take weeks to even months to post. That way, you’ll also have better evaluation on whether to apply for a particular bank bonus or not.
Additional tips we have for you is to keep a spreadsheet of all the bank bonuses/accounts you’ve applied for and document the important dates such as: the date you opened the account and the date you have completed all the requirements. That way, you can review our data points to see if your expected bonus payout wait time is normal or not.
You can also save a PDF printout of the bank promotion offer or keep any documentation as proof that the bank offered this bonus (e.g. mailer, flyer, local newspaper ad..etc). That way, if the bank denies you the bonus eve though you’ve completed the qualifications, you will have proof that the bank had this promotion going on.
Lastly, be sure to read the bonus fine print closely in regards to the length of time you need to keep the account open as some bank bonus requires you to keep the newly opened account for a period of time or the bonus could be forfeited if you close out your account too soon!
