If I understand the terms of this promo, the funds earning the 2.3% are in a special Earn More account as opposed to the Park Account that currently pays 3% until January 31....is that correct?
I suppose if someone was firmly opposed to dealing with Motive that pays 2.8% to CDIC limits, then this DUCA promo that pays 2.3% up to $250,000 DICO limit might be an option, along with the other FI's offering 2.3% like Oaken, Accelerate, Wealth One, EQ.
Don't know much about Outlook at 2.4% or Steinbach at 2.5%, but have to admit DUCA customer service is top notch.

I think you've got it right, Stephen.
Quite a depressing rate, really. It's only impressive when compared to their regular rate of 1.4, which none of us would touch anyway.
It doesn't make me optimistic about what they will offer when the 3% promo ends.
They keep telling us the economy is chugging along reasonably well in most of the country, but it's not doing much for savers and retirees who need reliable no-risk income. sources.
I think I'm going to take another look at annuities, crazy as that may sound, because it's getting hard to believe rates will improve in my lifetime. Perhaps the tax savings on non-registered ones will justify them by boosting effective income. We aren't concerned about leaving an inheritance.
