Ideal Savings - New Deposit Special - 2.5% until April 30, 2018

https://idealsavings.ca/rates/

Rates are effective November 1, 2017. All rates are calculated on a per annum basis and are subject to change without notice.

*The New Deposit Special will be offered for a limited time only. The 2.50% rate will be guaranteed until April 30, 2018 only on new funds deposited to Ideal Savings to a new qualifying account.

To qualify, the New Deposit Special account must be opened during the period when the 2.50% product is being promoted on http://www.idealsavings.ca/rates, which is subject to change at any time.

Effective November 1, 2017 the rates for all existing Ideal Savings accounts are as follows:
- the Ideal Savings Special 2.50%, guaranteed to December 31, 2017, has been extended to be guaranteed to April 30, 2018;
- the Ideal Savings Special 2.30%, guaranteed to December 31, 2017, has been changed to a rate of 2.50%;
- the Ideal Savings Special 2.25%, guaranteed to December 31, 2017, has been changed to a rate of 2.50%; and,
- the regular Ideal Savings rate is 2.00%.

If you have any questions please email us at info@idealsavings.ca.

So if I am reading this correctly...anyone who opened an account when it was the 2.25% promo will now get 2.50% but only till December 31, 2017. If you open an account on or after November 1, 2017 you will get 2.50% till April 30, 2018.

This works fine for me. I was one of those lucky enough to open an account during that narrow window when a select few were given 2.5% till the end of 2017. Ideal has now confirmed to me that all of my balance will now get 2.5% until April 30, 2018.

Ideal is a great place to park excess cash to any amount (as long as their rates remain attractive), since in the other institutions I won't put in more than the 100K covered by CDIC.

I like this. The rate was extended without having to call in and threaten to move to another institution.

I think they started a new promotion and adjusted the current offers:

* The New Deposit Special will be offered for a limited time only. The 2.50% rate will be guaranteed until April 30, 2018 only on new funds deposited to Ideal Savings to a new qualifying account. To qualify, the New Deposit Special account must be opened during the period when the 2.50% product is being promoted on http://www.idealsavings.ca/rates, which is subject to change at any time.
