PC Interest Plus 2.75% => 2.25% => 2.55%.

Interesting! I guess by going so low in interest rate many people (like us) pulled their money from PCF.

I know I did and moved it to HSBC.

Will it come back? Maybe, in time... They will have to do better than 2.55% though to get my business back.

I'm not confident that PCF can maintain a TFSA rate that's better than their Interest Plus rate. The TFSA rate for balance up to $1000 can drop to 1%. Besides, PCF doesn't have good GIC rates--a disadvantage should you wish to buy a GIC inside your TFSA.

This is the first time I've seen an abrupt about-face like that from one of the online banks. Just goes to show that cash is king in the current economic climate.

We pulled our money out when they went crazy low. The might be .05% higher than ING now, but we'll keep our money there for now. I think CIBC is getting way too greedy with PCF and I think eventually we will stop all our business with CIBC and PCF.
