    Opened new account when I set up to transfer mortgage. Got the mortgage Cashback but they wouldn't honour the $40. Tried a couple of times but got nowhere.

    I still remember i opened account online had to go to branch to verify ID

    • Yep me too and never got the $40

    • I was able to open it purely online, maybe they share ID info with Westpac as I had to go to a branch to open with them a few years ago; that was the only time I ever had to ID check for a transaction account.

  • Anyone got 40 bucks?

    I got the $40 through the last deal no worries.

    It was then trying to setup a $6k credit card they wanted me to come into the bank for retinal scans, DNA sample and a kidney. Gave up, cancelled credit card application and closed the deposit account. Good times.

      Probably didn't pass the Blood type testing, IQ testing, diabetes testing either.

      St George is funny, I called them up asking why they rejected me, they just said applying again will probably get your rejected again.

        I set it up in 5 minutes? Sounds more like a PEBCAC issue tp me.

  • I tried to get a st george account over the years but it's like a black hole after you submit the application. Totally incompetent or by design.

  • I had an account with them many years ago. Is this a one off now? Or you count as new account holder after a few years again?

  • How long it takes for them to setup the account ? Been more than a day and no news about the account details

  • Was able to set up an account with an online ID check, but can't add the virtual Google Pay or Samsung Pay card. With Google Pay it just opens up the Google Pay app, with Samsung Pay it just redirects to the Samsung Pay app in Play Store. Looks like a joke.

    • Yep, found the same.

    I confirm I received my $40 bonus within a week of the conditions being met.
