I tried to open an account online but something isn't cooperating - has anyone else tried? I'm not opposed driving to a branch but it seems like this should not be so difficult. Principal Bank was a breeze.

I am curious what exactly went wrong with opening account online. Did online account application form failed to work properly? Thanks. Mark.

I figured out why I was having trouble. My Internet Security software and firewall were blocking a lot of stuff on the bank's site.

I decided it wasn't worth signing up. I'd need to keep a minimum of $4,000 in all of my PNC Bank accounts to avoid monthly service fees, and I'm not willing to tie up that much of my money in a bank that's not easy for me to access.

It looks like you can get the bonus with Digital checking too. This account does not require to keep a balance to avoid a monthly fee. You will need to have a direct deposit and active bill payment (once a month) to have it without a charge.

Huh, I missed that, thanks.

Have you opened an account through PNC? If not, why not.

I did not open an account for personal reasons. They do not have anything to do with this particular bank or bonus. The bonus seems like a good deal to me. Although it may be difficult to simulate direct deposit to PNC bank with ACH transfers (from ING Direct, etc). According to fotomaniak, PNC online banking show differently ACH transfers and direct deposit. So you may have to setup a true direct deposit to PNC in order to get the bonus.

You can also link your Paypal to the account. It'll count the initial two deposits as direct deposit. Got that from Fatwallet.com

I'm not sure. Since the Paypal verification amounts are both less than one dollar, I wouldn't think so.

I was talking about the condition to fullfil their direct deposit requirement.

It is doubtful that a deposit of $1 would be enough to avoid their service charge.

I called the bank and found the answer myself.
Minimum DD and bill pay is $25 per month which is within the paypal limit of $500.
I will withdraw funds from some other bank to pay pal and then deposit into PNC account.
$101 is not a bad deal for a little work and I opened the account today.
They even allow opening of account from Credit card up to $100. @1% that is an additional $1.
