I currently have a checking account that requires direct deposit for fee to be waived. I am sending $10 ACH back and forth monthly via Citibank and this satisfies the DD requirement.

The bonus still applies over the phone and it is very easy. Plus, you get a phone reps name and extension in case there are any bonus issues in the future!
