I have read over the years about buying GIC's from some of the Winnipeg CU's. Some don't offer, some you have to pay for the certificate. A lot of us like an official receipt and some of us just like to have some type of paper to file. I have used this PDF maker for years.
There is also a Mac version. You can use it to convert a web page, excel, Word and etc to a PDF file. It installs as another printer on your PC and as you make a GIC purchase online, PDF it as you go or if you call the CU, go online and make a PDF for your electronic and/or paper filing. And yes if you have a scanner on your printer you and likely make a PDF copy too, but this nice utility allows you to skip a step,

Hope you find this to be helpful.

The good old paper days are gone.. It's sad that it costs money to do things the old/original way.. Bonds.. Funds.. Long term and a VIP/elderly client who demands a paper copy may be able the bank to do it without paying.. Then if you lose the original copy your kaput and have to pay again.. For anything short-term I'll just keep my digital receipt (ING is good for this) and offers all the options for setting up ahead of time for when maturity comes..
