Expired [Meridian] $100/$1k Deposit for HISA, New Members

Edit: current promo expired August 31st. We can still discuss the deal in this thread, and can refer back to it when the promo comes back (probably in the winter).

Promo is back! Open a new member account at Meridian, deposit $1k and collect $100 WB. Easy peasy.

I know @jacnel should be all over this.

Found the terms and conditions

Looks worth it to me. 10% earnings on your $ only after 90 days.
I did the one in 2016, $100 for $100. I'm eligible for this one :)

Seems like it's better to deposit in early September?
Good call. What's crazy is it seems you only need to keep the 1K balance in place until Sept 7. You only have to keep the "awarded funds" in the account for 90 days

Perhaps I jumped too soon? I just opened and funded the account. Busy setting up external account linking now.

Now considering jumping on the Meridian CBI, it's a nice card.

Wow free USD chequing account, I've been looking around for awhile for one of those.
Probably will be the easiest 100 I've earned this year. "Money won is twice as sweet as money earned." so true

You did but who cares... it's 1k @ 2.5% interest lost for a month. What's that, $2.08 minus income tax.

Opportunity cost of 0.8% compared to leaving it in EQ. Certainly not a bad move. Got it done, now can kick back and wait for my $100.

Can you close the account online without a phone call when you get the money?
Any credit check when you open the account online?
  1. you can do a me to me push/pull to transfer funds to another bank or CU to empty it first. I'm in the process of linking Meridian to other FI's (and vice versa). I'm taking you'd either have to call or send a secured message, and they'll be able to close it for you.
  2. Soft pull

So were you able to setup an external link without having to snail mail the form in?
That's the first negative thing I've encountered they want you to send in a form by mail :(
I'm thinking I'll skip this and just have my external account link up since they provide the direct deposit form
