How long are funds on hold at oaken? I had transferred money to oaken with the intent of buying a gic but then i found out about pt offer and want to transfer out.
As far as I know, Oaken is standard 5-7 business days, so call it 10 calendar days. Your best bet would be a quick call to Oaken and get them to confirm your hold expiry date. Confirm whether that's the last day of the hold, or the first day of availability. Also, sometimes, depending on the FI, if you offer to e-mail them a transaction history screen print showing the debited transaction, they'll release the hold early.
Peoples Trust will rate hold for 10 days, but I suspect this 3% offer will exist through the end of February, perhaps the end of March. They're clearly targeting RRSP contributions.
