Soft Pull to Open U.S. Bank Checking Account

Use Credit Card to Fund U.S. Bank Checking Account
The rep also said that you can absolutely use a credit card to fund a new account (up to $500), including a U. S. Bank credit card, and it will process faster.
The opening deposit limit is $500, and if you use a U.S. Bank credit card, the opening deposit will NOT be considered a cash advance and will NOT have the higher APR.
You can also fund new accounts using another bank account, debit card, or credit card from another issuer, and the limit for all options is $500.
After the opening deposit, you can make regular deposits into the account either by visiting the branch, from another bank electronically, or if you want to deposit cash from a U.S. bank credit card (or another issuer’s card), it will be a cash advance at a higher APR rate in the future (at least for U.S. Bank cards).

This does not to appear to be a Nationwide offer. I know of several people who have tried opening an account in Texas and US Bank denied the apps. YMMV.

HI—–what about just doing a direct deposit from one of your other bank accounts – would US Bank know that’s it’s not from an employer ? If you were to open a business bank account at another bank, then do a direct deposit to this US bank to meet requirements – would US bank accept this as a qualifying direct deposit ?
