$400 for 2x$250 DD at Capitol One

Please use my Capitol One 360 referral link.

Right now CapitolOne is offering $400 for two deposits of $250 in 60 days. The site says:

You’ll earn an extra $400 when you accept the terms on a 360 Checking Account by March 31, 2017, and receive 2 direct deposits of $250 or more within 60 days of accepting the terms.

However the deal is targeted to Boston residents via email or mailer. The website says:

IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE AN EMAIL OR MAIL PIECE DIRECTLY FROM CAPITAL ONE 360 WITH THE ABOVE CODE, YOU ARE INELIGIBLE FOR THIS BONUS OFFER.

For the sake of being the datapoint I wanted to see I went ahead and applied. First I went to this site here and started my application. I kept on getting kicked out, especially when I shared my location. I then went to incognito mode and the application went through! I used ref code EXP400 when prompted and entered my Illinois address no problem. The account was opened and funded with direct deposit in 5 mins.

So I will let you know if it works out. I set my MyPay Allotments for $250 which will drop on April 1 and May 1 barely inside the 60 day window. The offer ends 31 March 2017. I might use my Schwab or TD Ameritrade accounts to drop $250 each to see if it triggers the bonus. Not sure if they enforce the bonus language of being targeted, you kids in Boston should not have any problems. Just YMMV, good chance for a bonus denial or a dragged out CSR conversation like ShittyBank would do.

If it works out we would get $400 for a mere $500 deposit for a sweet 80% return!

  1. Did it work? Lots of reports online of Capital One denying bonuses if you’re not directly targeted.. Can we get an update?

  2. I called 1(800)464-0727 an they verified that both codes are in there. They said I was all set! However it would take 4-6 weeks to post!
