Effective Jan 24, 2018, Alterna's E-savings account rate will be 2.05% and their TFSA rate will be 2.10%. Both rates will have no time limits. This information was provided by a customer service rep by phone.

If these rates hold, Alterna will have some of the most competitive rates on the market. Good for them!

Logged in this morning and saw this to be true. 🙂

They haven't updated the main page yet, but I am sure that will be once they open this morning

I did not see any rate increase on logging into my account this morning. Where was the updated rate displayed?

Edit: telephoned Alterna; CSR confirmed E-Svgs rate increase but website not updated yet.

Confirmed online today on Cannex as well Globe Investor

After logging in, click My Accounts. There will be a list of all of your accounts. Click on the eSavings account to show its account activity. To the right of Current Balance, there is a Current Interest Rate field.

Updated banner with the 2.05% rate is now visible on their High Interest eSavings product page. sf-smile

Yep. Central Bank rate goes up .25% and HISA rates creep up .10% or .05%, if at all. Sweet.
