The offer was sent through a mailer but it is transferable and it looks like it can be used multiple times. But code could be limited to a certain number of uses and since it was shared on a few days ago, it might already be dead.
Terms say the following:
Offer is transferable until redeemed by addressee in corresponding mailer; and we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to limit the number of times this promotion code may be used.
It’s probably best to apply in person or by phone so you can verify that the code is still valid or if you using someone else’s code. If anyone has other codes they’re not planning to use, please share in comments.
You must be 18 years or older. Offer cannot be combined with any other bonus offers. Your Promotion Code must be entered at new account opening to be eligible for this offer.
The account needs to be open for at least 90 days and remain open in an eligible account type until payment of bonus, which will occur within 30 days thereafter.
Direct deposits include deposits made by your employer or a federal or state government agency or retirement benefits administrator and generally payments made by corporations or other organizations. It does not include deposits to your Account that are made by an individual using online banking or an Internet payment provider such as PayPal.
That’s the fine print in the offer, which is pretty specific compared to other banks. Best option is to direct deposit your paycheck if that’s possible, but ACHs have also worked in the past, with the same language in terms.
