Thanks for all the help & advice, Folks ! sf-smile

I just finished applying on-line for a Motive Savvy Savings Account today. It seemed pretty easy, and straightforward. Now comes the waiting for Motive Financial to do it's thing.

I'll report back on how long it takes for my account to get up & running, and if there were any glitches along the way.

Cheers,

Dean

Just out of curiosity did you have some earth shattering negative experience with Hubert?
. . . 

A recent series of rate reductions ... one right after another! I expect yet another set of rate reductions from Hubert Financial, any day now. It won't be long before they have rates as bad as the Big Banks.

Lots of people are taking their $$$ out of their Hubert SA, and going elsewhere. It's sad, really ... I used to like Hubert.  

Ah, makes sense. I only have GICs with Hubert and no HISA. I am not a HISA chaser and am happy with Accelerate HISA. They have cheques and an ATM card but no ME to ME.

I am not happy that Hubert's HISA rate has gone down, but neither am I going to blame them or cross them off my list.
For quite a few months they were offering very good rates, and I think they just ended up with more cash than they could invest profitably. A lot of us, including me, took good advantage of their one-year cashables at 3.1 only a few months ago, for instance.

Further, I would anticipate that other MB CUs will follow suit, esp if BoC rate goes down.

@Dean. It's been over a month now. How did you application process work out?
