This site shows a Comparison chart and a GIC chart. Shouldn’t the Comparison chart be titled HISA chart?

It is a worth while effort to turn on ALERTS on your Credit Cards and Bank/Credit Union Accounts.

My reasoning for it staying as "Comparison chart" is because of the title of the site: "Canadian High Interest Savings Bank Accounts". As with most things, I'm definitely open to changing it depending on what others think. Would "HISA chart" be confusing or has "HISA" become a widely known acronym now?

I'd vote for the renaming to HISA chart.

I agree with renaming. And as pretty much all the talk lately is about GICs (unless there's some hot promo on a HISA going on) the site's title is now really just reflecting one aspect of what it provides (very good) info on.

On the GIC rate comparison chart it says non-redeemable terms.Perhaps an * should be added to the Hubert 1 year term.Many readers of this chart might not know that it is redeemable at any time (subject to interest penalties)as interest is paid every 3 months in escalator fashion.

That means Outlook Financial should have an * for all GICs too.

* = early redemption allowed, interest rate penalty may apply.

Hi, I agree. But when the GIC chart was added my suggestion was to make each tab logically meaningful. And keep in mind the first time user. And yes I think HISA is now an acronym used by a number of FI’s.....Google HISA.

Thanks for reviewing my suggestion.
