    FYI – per suntrust chat – this account requires a soft credit pull + Chexsystems inquiry. There is no hard pull. Data point.

    This is a great offer! I opened my account on 11/20/14 with them and received a cash bonus of $200 ten days ago. For the direct deposit requirement, I did an ACH transfer from another bank and SunTrust accepted it as a direct deposit. Thank you for this!

    ACH push don’t work for SunTrust, did all required, doubled up with DD & they told me No-No!!!!! Must be payroll DD, so the comment that ACH push is ok, you’re full of *#%$ !!!!!!! Bank

      I am not sure why ACH didn’t work for you, but it worked for me. Maybe you did it wrong. After all, you can’t even talk properly and your name says it all. Good luck!

    two months after I opened a checking account Suntrust locked the account for no apparent reason and I can no longer withdraw funds. They told me I had to come to a branch to unlock the account. They did not care that since the account was opened online and I do not live near a branch that was not possible to do.

    I opened my account last summer and am STILL fighting with Suntrust over their promised $100. My advise is to do everything required, print out everything, and keep track of everyone you spoke with. Account has to be opened online from the “landing page”. Print a screenshot of it – luckily i did, because Suntrust did not believe me!

    I have been a loyal customer of SUNTRUST for 17 years…therefore I am NOT eligible for this promotion. Kinda sucks! When will these banks show appreciation for their customers that STAY?
