The link in your post takes you to their regular 1st page with no mention of the deal, did they remove it even though it expires September 7? I believe it showed up a couple weeks ago.
Wondering the same myself. Did they swap it out for the 2.8% / 6 mo promo? Only seeing this now, wouldn't mind getting in on it.

That's funny because the CS rep I spoke to today confirmed it closes September 7. Invincible, call them and see if you can still do it.

So I did call. Rep told me "I think you're right" when I mentioned the terms indicating September 7th but he dug up an email saying end of day September 2nd. He suggested I go to a branch (there are none near me) so no go - I missed it.

New members get 2.8% for six months.

DUCA's 3.25%/3 months promo is better IMO, and into December we'll see who's next in line to offer the better promo interest for HISA.

Anyone who parked the $1k in Meridian should move it to DUCA once we get our $100 deposit.

Seems like some poor communication. It is in writing. I would go by that and not some hearsay. I'm surprised that they would end an offer on a non business day.

Please keep in mind that the fine print at least requires the account to be open online and not in a branch.

I was surprised too - I actually commented on that. I was ready to let this go until I saw this this morning:

Clearly they had scheduled their ad campaign to go until the 7th. I feel like mashing that ad button all day long lol.

Good point. I think it was just a "see what they can do for your - it's out of my control" suggestion. The landing page is gone - not much they can do about it.

Open it, make the deposit and then wait for your $100 to appear. Winking Face

If it doesn't, call and explain. They will probably give it to you because they want your business.

Do you guys think it's safe to withdraw the $1000 on September 8th? Terms and conditions indicate we need to have $1000 on September 7 to qualify

Would really like to invest the extra $1000 in weed stocks (or should I say gamble)

I was going to move the $1k to DUCA, but any thoughts on weed stocks? Anything short term?

You have zero chance if you do not try. Better than that if you do.
