Checking account Account opening, closing, or management
BMO Harris Bank account or service department,
During the third week of - I came across and advertisement by BMO Harris Bank to open a checking account, satisfy " 1 ) Open a new BMO Harris Everyday Checking ( R ), BMO Harris Select Checking ( R ) or BMO Harris Portfolio Checking ( R ) account between -/-/- and -/-/- in a BMO Harris Branch or by calling -. 2 ) Have at least two direct deposits of any combination of a paycheck, pension payment, Social Security payment, or other government benefits payment of $300.00 or more each electronically deposited into the account from an employer or outside agency within 90 days of opening. " I then called the number listed on the advertisement and spoke to a representative who I asked to confirm that an ACH deposit that comes in with the account number and routing number qualifies as a direct deposit, and I was told YES.
external source for work I did credit into the account each for more than $300.00. After both posted in the account, I called and spoke to a representative who informed me that this WOULD satisfy the requirement for the bonus ( FlexCode- ) and that I was all set, because it was just " outside money. '' Feeling a bit hesitant because that representative used wording that was neither on the offer nor had been used by the other representative, I thank the representative and hung up, and called back the next day to again to confirm. This time, the representative first said the same thing as the representative I spoke to on the day prior " foreign money, '' however when I asked her to double check, she came back and told me that she had miss informed me. When I asked to speak to a manager, she put me on hold for over 20 minutes, and then the line just disconnected. I called again and had to jump through hoops to get to a manager where I was told that those deposits would not qualify me for the bonus. When I asked to speak the a manager, and had a representative from corporate call me back, they said and I quote " NO one here will give you a bonus. '' They then continued to be very rude and yell at me over the phone, and it was a very uncomfortable conversation. It has been a huge headache and a pain to deal with this bank as they treat their customers very poorly and do n't honor their marketing campaign. They deceived me to open an account, and than do not want to honor the bonus for me, but rather want to treat me rudely.
