    First call I made I said that I wanted to open an acct based on a promotion I found online. Was promptly told that I can only do it if I’ve received a postcard in the mail. Ended call without giving any info.

    Second call, I tell them that I received a postcard in the mail a little while ago offering a promotion. They ask for MA code, I give them 76069. They ask what state I live in (Michigan), and then tell me that the MA code I gave was not valid for the state of Michigan. Ended call.
