Curious. Not very significant these days, Manulife online banking shows the interest rate on my account (opened for last year's promo) less than a dollar balance at 1%. Their new Advantage Account opening rate is still at 0.15%. No new promo was displaying on their site.

1% is the correct rate for the Manulife Bank Advantage Acct - a combined chequing and savings acct. Their GICs are competitive from 1yr 2.50% to 5 yr 3.66%.
Manulife is close to major bank status, rated around A+ so they don't need to pay Oaken (its parent Home Group is rated somewhere near B) type rates.

Quite sure it is a rate hike - 0.85%. It was 0.15% ...before the long weekend.

So, no Manulife Bank promo so far this year?

For the time being, seems like it. I thought of checking their accounts page this morning following the 1% rate "discovery". By all accounts, over 600% rate hike sf-wink

Advantage account now at 1.25%. It's not something to crow about, other than they're no longer bottom of the barrel.

Advantage rate 1.50% observed today on Manulife website.

Since we don't cover Manulife on the chart, let's keep this thread rate informational & leave personal comments elsewhere ? Much appreciated.

Hard to believe that Manulife, who used to be a leader in HISA promotions, have basically offered their clients nothing for over a year. I used to be a client but I withdrew all my funds after their last promotion ended.
