Anybody got the payroll bonus yet though?
Seems to be a hit or miss with some things as it took me FOREVER to just get my advance mastercard (some minor issues that weren't my fault delayed it so long).
I've been away for a while....

I am still waiting my step credits. Account was opened mid Aug also i did not receive a personalize debit card which was supposed to me mailed after a month per the branch staff where i opened the account.
Maybe you should call them and ask about your card. I opened account on 24th of September and already received personalized debit card (last week) and referral bonus (today).

Same here, I got the $300 bonus today but did not get the $100 payroll bonus yet.

Did you set up a recurring payroll deposit too? If so, did you get the $100 bonus?

For those with the Mastercard Advance, how long did it take before you received the $50 rewards credit after receiving card?

Didn't bother with setting up payroll deposits.

I had used the card for 2 weeks and made several purchases, still don't see the $50 credit to my account.

Have you called them? :/ would love to figure this out as honestly I don’t expect to use the card except to get the 50 bonus. I have other cards I normally use

It will not show up in your account. It will show as reward you earned. The reward will be redeemed in Jan as credit to your account, i think.

Boo I guess CSR wasn't bs-ing me. Do you know if we have to call them to have it applied in Jan or will it do it automatically?
I've had times were one of the big 5 banks would refuse to let me redeem unless I called on a specific day or something. It was supremely annoying

Got my $300 welcome bonus today too, they must've done a big batch of them.

Now the only thing missing is the direct deposit bonus.
