In a confirmation email:

As requested, this email confirms you're signed up for the Simplii Financial™ Savings Account offer. You'll earn 1.50% on eligible new deposits until October 31, 2021.

I am an existing account holder.

Might be targeted.

Edit by admin: there is also a new client offer being discussed in this other thread

No offer for me.

1.50% is lower than the 2% I'm getting at Manulife Bank.

Please clarify how this offer became available, and where to look online to see if it exists.

The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to
annoy people who are not in them.

No that's for the other thread. I was referring to this existing client situation, which the OP was.

I'm interested as well; my wife and I have always received email invites to these types of promos for years ... and generally participated.

Nothing received so far, for existing customers, as regards a 1.5% promo through Oct 31st ?

Same here. To paraphrase the "Soup Nazi": "No promo for you, next."

I got a couple of offers from them for a credit card and a mortage.

Why.... seriously why even attempt this promo?

1. only a few months
2. only at 1.5%
3. usual dollar limit
4. always a risk they say you were not really registered (happened to me once)

Canadian Tire gives you 1.55% without any of the above issues

Give me at least 2% and I MAY consider it

I'd be serious, as a secondary place to go with HISA funds 😉

Because: 3 1/2 months, guaranteed rate, already topped up at CT (ie; maxed out just below CDIC limit, hesitant to go over it) and if they drop, a pre-arranged place to transfer to.

Alas, no e-mail for me, Tang has avoided me too, not that they have anything. sf-cry

well one has to be realistic. No one will give u 2% unless its a new account perk. Otherwise they save you time as you dont have to even consider it as its not there 🙂

Actually, most "normal" institutions are willing to offer a better deal to their "high value" clients.

I tend to disagree. These day "high value" clients are "new" clients only. Be it FI, telco, any business that has a membership program...

I tend to agree with savemore. Many times, I have gone to my traditional bank (BNS, TD, CIBC) asking them to match a rate I found with HSBC, Tang, or someone else. I have never gotten a matching offer. My family has been with the big five for 50 years and have decent assets with them.
