Achieva Financial — review by Darkman

Outlook financial 4.1% is basically the same product as Achieva financial 4.1%

Both are virtual accounts .. with no branches ( I have both of them by the way )

Outlook is a division of Assinaboine Credit Union, where Achieva is a division of Cambrian Credit Union..

With both you are allowed one Free withdraw / check / debit per month…
Each additional withdrawal is $1
with Achieva – bill payments (regardless of amount) – .50 cents a bill payment

With achieva .. – 1 Free debit a month is in a form of a Check.. (you write check to yourself say in any amount .. or write a check to anyone else)

With Outlook – 1 Free debit is more flexible i think – either a check, or atm withdrawal, or maybe even a bill payment – qualifies as a 1 Free debit transaction..

With Achieva – i am pretty sure – you get more initial checks which are FREE.. .. with Outlook you get way less initial Free checks (but enough to get you started – like 25 i think)

With Achieva – if need more checks in the future – pretty sure you can order additional checks for FREE

Where with Outlook – if will need more checks in the future – will need to pay for them when ordering them..

Other than that.. they are the same product.. and Savings account rate is ALWAYS basically identical..

The GIC rates might vary a bit.. but more or less are the same…

Here are links to both:

    I have an $18K RRIF with BMO. Can I transfer this to you easily without cost? You are currently offering 2%/yr. Is this correct? Will my money be secure? Is it covered by Fereral Deposit Insurrance?

    Thanks.
