Hi there. Yes it is a little cumbersome to open the account but with little patience you can do it. They just need your driver’s license photos and one document to verify the address such as bill or bank statement.
Here is my link if any reader wants to earn $50.
Hello MM Team,
Please remove my referral link,
Unfortunately TFCU closed account due to manual review of many accounts opened online.
MM Team says
Hello Tetra, We’ve removed your referral link. Sorry to hear about that, but thank you for the update.
I tried to sign up for this bank but they are extremely cautious of new members. My application was declined due to opening too many bank accounts over the past two years. It has been quite a while since I have run into such a bank. Between that and asking for a bunch of proof of who you are (like Gesa Credit Union), they make entry quite difficult. If you, like me, are looking to take advantage of any and all checking account bonuses, you will have to rule this bank out.
To them, trying different banks is a negative which was always strange to me. What if I end up liking you? Maybe I switch to your bank being my main bank. I do have a few banks that I call home. The rest are very much interchangeable. Again, skip over this bank if you have opened multiple bank accounts/chased bonuses as they will decline you.
The issue is nearly every one of the thousands of people that opened an account in the last week with TFCU, has opened lots of accounts.
I just found out that Teachers has this clause buried in the fine print of the referral offer. Due to this, please remove my referral link in both places.
8. Bulk Distribution (Spam). Each Referrer is the actual sender of the referral emails and must comply with applicable law. Referrals must be created and distributed in a personal manner that is appropriate and customary for communications with friends, colleagues and family members. By submitting any email address as part of the Program, the Referrer represents that he/she has the appropriate permission and consent. Bulk email distribution, distribution to strangers, or any other use of the services described herein in a manner that is not promoted is expressly prohibited and may be grounds for immediate termination and further legal action. The Credit Union has no obligation to monitor the Program or any communications; however, the Credit Union may choose to do so and block any email messages, remove any such content, or prohibit any use of the Program. Referrers who do not comply with the law, including anti-spam laws, are obligated to indemnify the Program Entities against any liabilities, costs and expenses it incurs as a results of such spam.
MM Team says
No problem, I’ve removed your referral links as requested, although I’ve left the great content from your comment, as you provided some good information for others, so I hope you don’t mind about that.
I personally believe that clause is in reference to email spamming through their referral system, and not necessarily posting your referral links online, as they don’t want you to violate anti-spam laws.
They obviously retain the right to reject referrals for any reason, and they could always decide that posting referral links online is not acceptable.
However, to me, that clause is specifically referencing using their email referral system to send out bulk emails (or sending out bulk emails on your own) to unknown recipients who don’t want to receive them and haven’t agreed to be on any recipient list, and not necessarily posting your referral link online.
Usually, when a company restricts posting referral links online, they will specifically indicate that you cannot post your referral link on deal sites, message boards, etc.
It’s always better to be safe than sorry though if you are worried. Thank you for helping out either way. Best of luck.

Thank you for being a voice of reason!
Thank you. I don’t mind you leaving the rest of my comment. Most, if not all, of our accounts have been locked. I’m not sure if you are aware of that.
It could very well have nothing to do with this clause at all but like you wrote, I’d rather be safe than sorry although it might already be too late for that. I guess we will see.
BTW, is there a way for you to enable subscribing to new comments that come into a post? If so, please enable that. It would be very useful for someone like me.
Nice bonus with $5000 CC funding – Bank of America Premium Rewards will net this “purchase” 2.625% with Preferred Rewards.
If anyone needs a referral link for an extra $50 ($450 total with the bonus) here is mine:
I opened this account successfully 2 days ago using a referral link. It is clear in the $400 offer terms that the $400 offer CAN be combined with the $50 referral bonus. You need to enter your email address on the referral link and it will confirm your eligibility. Then you should proceed to open the checking account.
I opened the Smart Checking account as it has a $0 monthly fee so there’s not much to lose with that. I was able to sign up for online banking and get my own referral link immediately after getting approved.
There is a 2 minute time limit on the Chex-style questions. I didn’t notice this and got timed out of the application as they asked me the # of the address I lived at many years ago. I then just applied again and was asked the same question.
I must have remembered correctly as my application went through fine. I funded with $4700 using my Bank of America Cash Rewards card. I have heard from others that the maximum allowed is $5K. The charge was declined but fortunately, Teachers FCU let me try again after I clicked on Bank of America’s fraud email. It then went through.
My Cash Rewards purchase counted as “online” so it’s a nice amount of CB.
Make sure to enter the promo code “OFFER400”. The promo code box is near the end if the application before the funding section.
