    • Hmm, so this is specifically targeting new customers to Meridian. i.e. if you hold a mortgage with them, you are already a member and thus, not eligible for this promo, which sucks!

      Is it mean I can go TD/Scotia/BMO ATM to withdraw cash 4 times per month?

      Wondering if business accounts will qualify.
      So is it "and" or "or" for the director deposit and automatic withdrawal? I'm confused.. this doesn't seem like a place to use the and/or wording..

    • I am new to this kind of promotion.
      1, what is Meridian membership? How to purchase Membership Share?
      2, if I switch my working income deposit to Meridian, do I still need to set up 1 pre-authorized payment? Or I just need to do one of them.
      TIA
