    • I’m seriously considering switching my banking to CIBC as I’m currently with TD All inclusive banking package and have the TD Aeroplan VIP card. At CIBC, they give a rebate for partial amount of the AF on the Aeroplan privilege card and also have a lower fee for the secondary card holder. Plus their minimum required balance to avoid the monthly bank fee is lower at $4,000. Am I missing anything in this analysis?
      CIBC allows you to waive the fee if you have $100k in savings & investments with them so it really depends on your situation, the CIBC offer might not be bad. TD doesn't have the option to waive the fees based on investments.

    • Most of the sign up offers require direct deposit setup, is there way to do transactions if one doesn’t get salary or benefits from the government? Would insurance claims work?
      I wonder if any direct deposit would work... I have some money on Paypal and when I withdraw it, it shows as direct deposit in my statement

    • If you live in BC, Coast Capital Credit Union has the best chequing account welcome offer right now IMO, $350 welcome bonus to open a free chequing account (no monthly fee, no minimum balance). Set up a payroll and make 15 everyday transactions (including ATM withdrawals and e-transfers). There's another $50 bonus if you also set up a mutual fund account and contribute at least $50. No decent HISA offer at the moment.

    • What about Simplii? They have silghtly better deal than Tangerine but not many ppl talk about this bank owned by CIBC
      I bank with them and recommend them.

    • Tangerine is owned by Scotia and they have a slightly better offer. Scotia is notorious for failing to pay promised bonuses. The most dependable among the top 5 for bonuses is BMO in my experience.

    • Also to note, for you to make the $100, you'd have to get the 2.75% rate for a full year and deposit at least $66,667 in the account (compared to 2.6%).

      You'd make more money in a GIC over a year, and then take the $400 from CIBC at the same time.
      Thank you so much! I prefer HISA because interest rate probably going up another 1-2% this year, GIC would lock the interest rate so it seems not as good as HISA

    • Last time Scotiabank offer special rate with their HISA they had some complicated way of calculating it. So make sure you read all the * and details because at the end, you may not get 2.75%
      Thx for the heads up

    • Interest rates going up so expect many more of these deals coming down the pipe. Read the terms.

    • I've always found that the conditions for getting the bonuses and not having to pay their fees, to be a bit arbitrary and crazy.
