... HIGHINTERESTSAVINGS gets you an extra 5 bps, or 2.55%. Valid on 1-Year GICs only.
Parama Credit Union
ParamaPolly, how exactly would this extra 5 bps works ? I found no mention of HIGHINTERESTSAVINGS following the link ... Targeted offer?

Sounds like PARAMA Credit Union has created a special coupon code for HighInterestSavings.ca members and guests, independent of HighInterestSavings.ca itself, hwyc. In the new membership application, I would reasonably speculate you mention in the "referral code" space or "coupon code" space that you enter "HIGHINTERESTSAVINGS" as Polly specified and they will code your GIC to 2.55% instead of 2.50%.
Edit: Nevermind. Looks like PARAMA Credit Union doesn't have an all digital membership opening process, so you will need to visit a PARAMA branch, which also answers Stephen's (Nehpets') question. If you are an existing customer, you can probably open the GIC online, but might need to call PARAMA's contact centre and have them adjust the GIC rate by mentioning promo code. If a new customer, you'd just mention promo code to the banking advisor.
Hope that helps,
