Hope those of you playing around with payTM and PayPal get your comeuppance when CCS denies you the $500 bonus.
Lol. Jealous much.

my point is how could they tell the difference? What if my employer is PayPal or PayTM and they pay me twice a month? those setup were done at my employer side, not from CCS.
Payroll direct deposit have a company name attached to it.

I never even got the initial email when I signed up on Sept 11, only that 2 days wait message, is it normal that I never got that first email?
You was not approve instantly that why no e-mail was send to you.

Thanks for confirming, I am going to sign up on Monday 🙌🏾
Are you from BC? If not forget it, you will not be qualify.

I've been trying to apply since this afternoon and I can't get through the process without a site error. Made it to the final confirmation page once but it timed out there too.

Why? Does the term say so?

Yeah, but I read a few people here mentioned that they got the 2 days wait message and also an initial email with a reference number.

Do you check your email Spam folder? One of mine went to my Gmail Spam folder.

There's a lot of misinformation in this thread...

Not getting instantly approved doesn't mean you're rejected. I got the "Within 2 Business Days" message and was eventually approved without the need for any phone calls.

A hard pull isn't some "evil hocus pocus" Coast Capital chose to do, it's something every financial institution will do when you apply for a checking account ONLINE. It's standard. The big 5s all do it. The only way to opt out is if you apply in person. Otherwise a hard check is pretty much unavoidable, and they all disclose it to you before you apply.

Honestly Coast Capital offered a very generous sign up offer, they probably didn't expect so many applications (although they really should've, they're effectively handing out $550 for jumping through some very small hoops with almost no downsides, except the hard inquiry). I've said earlier on that I doubt the offer will make it pass the 48 hours mark, and it ended up being good for 1 and a half days. They're honoring it for people who already applied before they changed the terms, and that's really the best people could ask for.

It's still active now, is it not? Or do you just mean that it's now BC only?

It's too early to say they are honoring it for people who already applied before they changed the terms. We have to wait and see how this plays out.

Can these credit unions afford/have marketing budgets to afford this type of promo? Even if 10,000 new users signed up before they changed the terms, that's $5 million that coast capital would be looking at paying out. Ofcourse no one knows howmany new users signed up, but between reddit and rfd, I wouldn't be surprised if more than 10k new users signed up during the 1-2 days the offer went viral

If they couldn’t afford it they would have stopped it completely.
