A big bank’s $300 promotion makes me feel like banking is broken (day 118)

They pay you $300 to open an account and setup direct deposit. (there’s ways to game that without a standard W2 direct deposit).

Thats a lot of money for business development…just doesn’t feel like things are working right to spend a non-insignificant amount of money poaching customers from other banks.

Its obviously their money to spend as they wish, but it doesn’t seem like a functional system.

Not going to name them cause they don’t need free publicity, and they’ve done dickish things to me in the past (nothing out of the norm for standard bank BS, but still made my life substantially worse).
