I was fortunate to be able to open the "Best Free Checking" and planned to use my ascencia bank account (free ach transfers!) to do the direct deposit bonus. I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing, but a little after I was able to setup the account, I could no longer find the "Best Free Checking" on their homepage. (I think it's because of the merger and stuff) So, I have no clue if the promotion is still going on, since I don't even know if my account is still valid/normal. However, for some reason I found that upon opening the account, I received a $25 bonus.
Great, huh? Anyway, I still received the "switch kit" promo email and the welcome kit in the mail telling me to mail in the sig card and stuff...nothing out of the norm there, right? So, apart from the $25 opening bonus, nothing's is wrong...
Actually, nothing IS wrong, but the strangest thing is -- I received my statement today....along with someone else's statement inside the same envelope! I told the bank, but man, it's a bit unnerving.
Thanks for reading this. Feel free to add more input....I'd appreciate it and can use the guidance/advice
