    • very interesting. is there a source to back this up?
      That's a tough question, because all sources deemed "trustworthy" stated inflation was gonna be "transitory", or this. Do you think those same bought out corporate MSM would report on their benefactors like that?
      But I'll say this, the first piece of the puzzle is googling "RBC Evergrande exposure", and after that, if you search hard and deep enough, you'll find it.

    • Rbc sucks. They don't even actually buy your shares for some securities, they just give you the difference between your buy and sell price. Then when you tell them you wanna transfer your shares to another bank, they make a thousand excuses and fight you tooth and nail about why it's not possible or that it will take weeks to do so.

    • Ye they fosho give me best mortgage and interest rates
      They have their place. I use a lot of different banks. RBC are good for Mortgages and their sister Avion credit card.

      This Airpod bank account offer though? Sketchy....

    • RBC is not a competitive bank. Their fees are high and their response is a claim that you get good service in exchange. To that, I say: I) don’t lose my money and we should be good, and II) I will likely never need the supposed above average level of service that you claim to offer. I offered to bring them a number of different accounts and credit products and they refused to waive any fees. No other bank made me feel like they didn’t want or need my business than RBC.

    • My only problem with them is whenever I needed a bank draft or something it would take a few days to have it prepared and then I had to go to either downtown or their office at Steeles to pick it up
      When simplii was PC financial, a draft was done in a day and couriered to your place of choice.

      I am also an online bank customers, but if you really prefer brick and mortar banks, I like TD, and my family chooses CIBC. Both are equally good.

    • Tangerine served me well for 8+ years.
      Looked at them years ago, but I couldn't get over the insanely weak login security.
      No way I'm putting any meaningful eggs in that basket unless they've changed.

    • If you open a chequing, credit card and investment account, you won't have to pay any banking fees so the Airpods are free.

      I think it is important to deal with at least two banks. If the one bank has an issue (online, etc.), you can deal with the other bank. Also, having one bricks and mortar and one online bank is the best option. No bank is perfect or great as each has it's good and bad depending on what you are looking for.
      In order to get the AirPods you need to have one of either: RBC Signature No Limit Banking or RBC VIP Banking. Both of which have high monthly fees. It shows on the site as well that fees are going up on August 1, 2022 for the RBC Signature No Limit Banking Account... RBC is simply not worth the hassle to receive the rebates.

    • I haven't read the CDIC terms in a while but don't think they cover security breaches, it is mainly to insure against bankruptcy of the institution and they only cover $100k per account type.
      Looks like something I'm gonna have a conversation with Tangerine then.

      EDIT: Called them and they said naw, they don't cover.
      Well damn, I came on RFD for deals, not to worry about my current banking situation.
      At least Tangerine has 2FA, though sim hacking is a thing, because the 2FA is just through text, and not something like google authenticator.

    • I haven't gone over the insurable max amount of like $250k or something, so if something happens I'd at least be insured.

    • A bit dramatic lol but I guess you agree that it isn't that safe to keep more than a couple hundred in there so I am surprised that you say they have served you well for almost a decade in that case when you can have an account with similar features at Simplii or EQ with better security.

    • The secret to having a peace of mind in that situation is to be subservient to corporations and employers giving crap wages that does not remotely follow the rising cost of living and record corporate profits, making next to nothing after paying all the bills, and having no money in the account for anyone to take.

    • I have a Tangerine account for the credit card and the accounts are fine for minor things but how can you feel safe about your money with an online bank that doesn't even allow alphanumerical PINs? They force you to use a alphanumerical username and a numerical PIN as the only way to sign in...

    • I can't seem to find a disclaimer for "have a minimum balance of $x to waive the monthly fee"......Either I'm blind or this is not really a deal. You're just paying for the airpods in a monthly installment
      RBC doesn't offer such plan, they only offer a multi product rebate, depending on how many other products you have with them it could be enough to waive the entire amount or a portion of it. For example if you have a RBC Advantage account, you would need to have any of 3 of the 4: Personal Credit Card, Personal Investment, Residential Mortgage, Small Business Account to be eligible for the $11.95 to be waived.

      For each enrolled account, you must also complete at least 2 out of 3 regular account activities (pre-authorized payment, direct deposit or eligible bill payment) each month to receive the monthly fee rebate.

      Firstly you get access to scotia bank atms.

      Secondly if you need to visit a physical location / talk to someone in person for whatever reason (ie: giant cash deposits), then you can use your secondary bank/credit union. I have Vancity for that purpose. Why not a second bank? Cuz F*CK banks.

    • Yes and no.

      OP stated you can get rebate if you have other product. I believe credit card and investments, and maybe a mortgage to waive the fees completely...

      But you're right, there is no account with minimum balance to waive fees like otger big banks.
      If you have money, you don't have to pay lol

      I always find it so weird that RBC is the only one which does not have an option to waive the fees by a MMB. All other big 5 do have that option. Like aren't there marketing or whatever department telling them they are really missing out?
      I once mentioned this to RBC on the phone while doing some CC transaction and was told 'oh we are different, we don't force customers to tie their money and keep a MMB".
      I didn't want to argue so I said "sure".
