    This offer is ridiculous plus: I wouldn’t trust these people. They promised a $25 bonus about 6 months ago with only a $1 deposit. They never paid it. -I haven’t got any email responses from them since they know I’m a bonus hustler.

    Larry – any chance you have E-LOAN and ETrade mixed up? From what I see on their website, you cannot open an account with $1 deposit with E-LOAN. You can with ETrade and they also promise a $25 bonus (or used to).

I am just wandering if John Wu will start for sure? because Dollar fluctuation is very unpredictables in nowadays and many people need the informations. Since dollars is international currency and have effect to many others currencies made me think, it will be very wonderful if we have too.

    I have to agree with Travelinator and Larry on this offer – the return on investment is very very low. Add to this the fact that E-Loan doesn’t offer the best rates either.. -) Makes this bonus offer undesirable.

    Salil: Thanks for catching my bad. It is E-Trade I was referring to re the $1 to open. While we’re talking about the quality of bonuses, has anyone experienced problems with Capital One brick /mortar bonuses? I gave them a coupon for $200 to open a checking acct with $50 on 8/8/08. Signed paperwork to trf a direct deposit to them. They put sales pitches on me to take out a line of credit/home equity. I appeased them by applying and got approved. They continue to try to get me to activate it. Meanwhile, they haven’t given me the $200 bonus. A customer rep said to wait till the end of 90 days…. Here is is-90 plus days – no bonus.

    Here’s a FWIW bit of info. I rec’d email response from WAMU. The online MMA rate is now 2.5%. It was up to 4% before JP took them over.

    Larry – my experience in receiving the promised bonus or any other promotion has been good so far. I can’t comment on Capital One because I never had an account with them.

    Usually, whenever I sign up for a promotion, I capture screens if applying online – or if its something in the mail I received, I save that as well. That way I have proof of the promotion terms and that may help later 🙂

    I would rather take $5000 and short a bank etf. Better yet take $4000 to short a bank etf and $1000 to short Goldman Sachs. They will be the next victim of the short sellers to drop them into the teens.

    Keep your $25

    Have not heard a lot of good things around the net about E-loan. Plus like someone said the deposit amount if awfully large for an initial deposit to get a bonus.

    Wu Dude, I have been reading about how you scored 15 mil from this blog. How man? Looks like just another wordpress blog with some content slapped on it once in awhile. There aint even all that much traffic or commenters, what a trip.

    Dude, you are so rad to get some dweeb to fork over that much green, wow. I just hope it didn’t come from the 700 bil bail out, that would so suck.

    RE: Larry, I did receive the advertised $ 50 Bonus from Capital One for opening an Online Savings account….it did take 90 days but it showed up on my last statement….I opened it online so there was no sales pitch to do anything else
