    • So I assume a bimonthly PAD doesn’t work? It doesn’t say anywhere that it should be monthly though, or does it?

    • Do you know if the PAD needs to be monthly or is bimonthly ok too?
      If it's at least once a month you're good.

    • So now BMO is 2 PAD's and 2 Bill payments, up from 1 each for the promo that ended in Oct last year. Still better than CIBC's mandatory DD that must be maintained for 1 year.

    • Yup, I ignore anything that requires keeping the account open more than 4 months. This is an easy churn considering I can overpay my cell phone bill to hit the $50 minimum bill payment and carry forward the balance. If you can't do PAD, just switch your direct deposits or get your up coming tax refunds deposited as they count.
      Well this is not for you because BMO always had 1 year from the end of promotion to keep the account open.

      Only CIBC and Scotia didn't. Now with CIBC making DD mandatory and Scotia being the biggest scum bank that will fight tooth and nail to give you the bonus even though all the conditions have been met, I'm afraid the chequing account churning era is coming to a close.

    • Make sure you read the TOS.

      The Chequing Account must remain open in an
      Eligible Plan until January 31, 2024. Customers who close their
      Chequing Account or change to a plan other than an Eligible
      Plan before January 31, 2024, will no longer qualify for any
      cash bonus. If you close the Chequing Account or change to a
      plan other than an Eligible Plan and the cash bonus has been
      paid, we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to withdraw
      the full value of the cash bonus from the Chequing Account or
      send you an invoice for any amount outstanding.

    • Has anyone been able to open the newcomer account online? Moneygenius is offering an additional 75$ rebate on the newcomer performance plan, but the online application errors out and says I need to go to a branch. There's also an extra 100$ rebate on the regular performance plan from Moneygenius.
