Just received an email from PC Financial. I've been chosen (I feel special) to keep earning 2.25% until March 31, 2017. This applies to current and new funds. I was on the 2.25 promo until Dec 31. Coincidentally, my EFT cleared over to Ideal Savings (2.5%) today.

You must really be special since my email, just received, is for 1.5% (based on incremental balances over that in place August 31, 2016).

PC Financial does not want to keep my business. They just offered me the chance to "earn a great rate of 1.5%" till March 31, 2017. They are very much out of touch if they think this is a great rate!

My money from PC will be moving to Ideal at 2.5%.

I got same email as GoJetsGo, they say I'm "special" - my wife got zip (I told her I got it because PC agrees with her when she's always telling me "you're special all right"). Good thing our joint account with them has me as primary, it'll qualify for the special rate likely too. Will call tomorrow, have to "enroll".

Ideal reduced to 2.30%

Koogie, Ideal did not change my rate. They honoured the 2.5% on all deposits (not just initial) since I applied for the account before they changed the rate offer (yes...I have it in writing). I assume they did the same for all who applied during that initial period.

Note that the extra promotional interest portion only applies to amounts that exceed your total Aug 31/16 balance across all your PC savings accounts. It also does not apply to any amounts transferred after Aug 31/16 from a PC non-savings account to your PC savings account.

For me, 2.25% is for TFSA only
"Saving’s tough. We† feel you. So when you do it, hold onto it by putting it in a President’s Choice Financial® Tax-Free savings account (TFSA). Especially since from November 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017, your savings can earn a great rate of 2.25% on new deposits.

The sooner you apply for a TFSA and start depositing before March 31, 2017, the more money your money will make.

Ready to get your future self on track with a TFSA?"

Lol sf-laugh I don't want to play this game. My account balance is 0.01

I'm not "special".
Nothing for my PC Interest Plus savings account, not even "a great rate of 1.50%" till March 31, 2017.

I also received 2.25% for TFSA only on new deposits from November 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017.

The last time that my money came due (September?), PC wouldn't keep the rate on my existing funds. So out it went!

I just looked at the Ideal Savings website. Right now they are only offering 1.75%, not 2.25. Any other suggestions?? My Tanga 2.5% is coming due next week and I suspect they will not renew at the same rate.
I might go back to EQ--but was happy to leave there. And it is nearly impossible to check that you are receiving the proper interest. Anyone else find the same thing?? The website sucks.

No problem with the interest paid by EQ Bank.

I checked a few times. The interest paid on my EQ Bank Savings Plus Account does match my own calculations.

Only problem I've run into is my linked external accounts will disappear once in a while when they update their web site.

My PC Financial 2.25% ends Dec 31 2016 and I didn't get any emails about extending :( If I had, I'd move money out of Tangerine (2%) over to PC Financial, but as it is, I would only get 0.8% going forward.
