This topic is namely directed towards the site's administrator, Peter Keung.

Peter, can you please add AcceleRate Financial, the virtual banking subsidiary of Crosstown Civic Credit Union in Manitoba, to the Comparison Chart? They have very decent rates and, unlike the other Manitoba credit unions listed, offer unlimited free personalized cheque orders. Rates are on par with Peoples Trust, Canadian Direct Financial and Ally. You should also create a forum for AcceleRate Financial as well (http://www.acceleratefinancial.ca/).

Additionally, as much as I appreciate VanCity and Coast Capital Savings for their corporate philosophies and excellent banking products, they really should be removed from the Comparison Chart (https://www.highinterestsavings.ca/chart) as they are only available to residents of one province in Canada and that's British Columbia. I am all for allowing their respective discussion forums to remain.

Cheers,
Doug

Accelerate Financial looks like a real winner Doug; and I'm going to sign up. With the other MB credit unions only paying 1.50% (Outlook) to 1.85% (Achieva and Maxa), Accelerate is a great option.

They pay the same rates as Ally and Direct Financial, with the added benefit of free cheques and free chequing privileges with the usual free 1 cheque per month.

A little more competition amongst the MB credit unions can only serve to benefit those like us. ๐Ÿ˜†

Thanks for the tip. I've added AcceleRate to the chart and created its own forum.
