    • Thanks for sharing!

      Are there any signup bonuses right now in addition to the $200 for opening a chequing account & setting up payroll deposit for 3 months?

    • Thanks for posting OP. Upvoted because Simplii is great, even though I don't qualify (have been an account holder since PC Financial launched the account under Amicus, before it transitioned over to Simplii).

      It's the only chequing account that still offers free ($0) cheques AFAIK (granted I can't remember the last time I actually wrote a cheque), and has the benefit of being pretty much CIBC without branch/teller access.

      They do. Well they ask if they can to make it quicker and easier to open an account and if you say no they do it anyways lol.

      I didn't see an exclusion for people that previously held an account with PC Financial. Did you see this somewhere?

      Direct deposits have a code embedded within the info sent to the banks to say what it is (payroll is code 200, etc.). Simplii and other banks that look for payroll and related deposits look for those codes. You can't modify those codes just by moving money between different bank accounts.

      Agree. Simplii (or PC Financial) is fantastic. I was with Scotia ever since I was a student at Carleton. Scotia kept charging for service fee (more than the actual interest earned) monthly. I was able to reverse it after paying a visit to the bank. To leave over $5000 in a low interest chequing account is not what I wanted.
      Switched to PCF and later moved all accounts there. Over the years they had offered bonuses during the anniversary, birthdays etc. Quite a surprise. And they charge 0 service fee even my account has less than $300 in chequing. These day I don't go to bank often. Don't really remember when was the last time I went there. May be 7 years ago trying to get a draft for purchasing my vehicle.
      Banks are using my money to invest and make more money. Yet they try to make more money when I put money there by charging service fee. The same thing applies to annual fee for a credit card. I don't care how much additional services the CC offers.
      Upvoted.

      Thanks! They kept telling me I should receive a signature card via email in 24 hours, which obviously never happened. I'll wait a few more days for the snail mail to come.
      I didn't receive anything via email from them since opening the account, despite what the rep told me.

      You should call to follow up. The communication from them (via their secured-email server) came the next day.
