This is similar to their previous offers, under both Simplii Financial and PC Financial brands. I believe, a common offer under PC Financial was to set up a payroll or pension direct deposit and earn $100 and then two bill payments and earn $50.
Nevertheless, if they're talking recurring or scheduled bill payments, that's actually better than pre-authorized debits. If they mean pre-authorized debits and are using the verbiage Automatic Bill Payments, that's bad form as they're significantly off-side with standard terminology in the industry.
Personally, I don't worry about the "deadlines" for the offer as, for the past 10-15 year or so, without fail (usually launching in the spring and continuing for at least 3-4 months; of late, the offers have been extended later than historical patterns), PC Financial and Simplii Financial have offered a generous $100-200 new customer offer. If and when I become a first-time customer, I know there will be an offer for me. And, if there isn't, that's fine, too...they just won't get me as a customer yet. 😉
