Just a quick update. So far my personal experience with Ideal has been excellent. Every time I have called in they have picked up after only a few rings. Their account navigation is decent, for the most part, and they have email alerts that keep me up-to-date with all account activity. They also send out an email at the end of each month with an update on my interest earned. Excellent experience with them so far.

I too will chime in on my EXCELLENT experience with Ideal Savings. Filled out the "on-line" application, printed it off, and mailed in the signed application along with the Initial Deposit cheques. After completing the "on-line" application I received an immediate email from Ideal which included the following information
"To enjoy these great benefits, we require only two items to complete the opening of your Ideal Savings account:
- Mail in your signed application; and
- Your initial deposit in the form of a personalized cheque* drawn on a Canadian financial institution, made payable to yourself."
Two days after mailing, I received another email indicating receipt of application followed by email alerts of Credit Memos covering of the 2 initial deposit cheques making the account live. Two days following I received the 1st of 2 information letters one including the account number, the second with the password. The account is live, the website incredibly simple and straightforward and I'm looking forward to my 1st interest payment on 31 December 2016.
