Well, that's according to the Globe and Mail's Rob Carrick -

-------------------------------------

They still have this nasty proviso to entry -

Opening a bank account

To open either of these accounts, simply contact your financial advisor. If you don't have a financial advisor, we can help you get the professional advice you need to make well-informed choices about your financial future.

It seems as though you can get the Advantage account by just filling out the application online.

I'm confused on what group of people they are trying to get though. It's a weird mix between a top 5 and an online bank with its $1k minimum balance for no fees and the interest rate.

The big catch for me is when the promo ends the rate goes back down to 1.25%. The daily limit on transfers out is only $3,000!
