Chase had recently mailed me an offer wherein if I open a checking account with them and setup direct deposit, they will pay me $300 cash. Although I have no job, I could set up direct deposit of my unemployment checks into my my Chase checking account.
I'm concerned that if I set up direct deposit from my unemployment to my Chase checking account, Chase will notice the discrepancy between this and the job I reported when I applied for my credit card. I'm concerned that this may cause Chase to restrict my credit, or that it may harm my credit more generally.
What do you think?
I wouldn't risk it. Those $300 offers are easy to find online, so they'll turn up again once you get a job. If you don't get another offer, just google it and you'll find one.
