I'd be happy to see both ICICI and Canadian Tire removed from the comparison chart (and their forums archived?). No one has posted about them for about 6 months to a year, and their rates are quite low compared to others on the chart.

And, suggest adding Ideal Savings. Their basic rate has settled at 1.75%, comparable to many others.

I'd support Ideal Savings being added and Canadian Tire Bank being removed (as I've suggested before). They're only 5 bps above what Tangerine/PC Financial were at when they were removed from the chart and they have fewer demand deposits than Zag Bank and are mainly just into GICs. Their online banking interface, according to forum member Greg, is "clunky." 🙂

I'd keep ICICI Bank in there for now, though, so long as they stay above 1.25-1.30%. 🙂

Cheers,
Doug

Why not just change the name of the chart to something like "accounts paying at least X %" (the X can be changed as rates or other factors change) and then whoever qualifies that day gets listed?

Thanks everyone for the input so far.

Tangerine and PC Financial were both removed at 0.80%, which makes it a bigger gap, right?

I've been waiting on Ideal Savings because of how fast they changed their rates and messaging, twice. They've probably settled now, but I'm not willing to give them the benefit of the doubt yet.

Rate is of course not the only thing. Still doing some thinking and waiting 🙂

SORRY . with this crowd, RATE is everything . I just don't get the intransigence concerning Ideal. Keeping ICICI on the chart . REALLY . they haven't been meaningful for the last 5 + years.

WTF I just replied to this post and it's NOT there?

I was trying to quote Peter's earlier post and it's not here. Weird. 🙁

Grrr...I'm liking SimplePress less and less. 🙁

Vanilla Forums for the win! sf-cool
