Wow, 1.90% to 2.25% is quite the jump!
Tempting, but I have never dealt with Tangerine, and not sure about the wisdom of adding another FI to the stable ??
Reviews on this site are quite old...3yrs and back ...
How would their online banking re transfers in and out, buying GICs, Joint GICs? compare to Hubert or EQ ? thanks

And it looks like you still have to call in to make a GIC Joint, even when you already have Tangerine Joint Accounts ...

I refused for a long time to play the "tang" interest game, however, I finally caved in a couple years ago to take advantage of their promotional interest. I do not have a chequing account with them, only savings. Since then I have purchased GIC's, transferred funds in and out and find everything comparable time wise and ease with both Hubert and EQ. Don't know about joint GIC's.
CAN ONLY LINK 3 ACCOUNTS.
Registered accounts do have a $50 transfer out fee.
Daily transfer OUT limit was $50,000 (may have changed) Over $50,000 need to call them.

.
What Frugal Lady said , plus . . .

Both the Wife & I have Tang SA's, and play the 'Special Interest Rate Offers' game when they come along. And when they're done, we move our $$$ elsewhere again and the balance goes back down to a dollar & change, until the next offer comes along. It's a silly little Tang game, but we've made a fair amount from it.

We also have a no-fees chequing account with them, and their 2% cash-back CC. But we've never bought any of their GIC's or Mutual Funds, as for the most part they just don't measure up.

It works for us, as a small part of our overall portfolios.

I currently do not have tangerine gic's but I did get offers while I had some. Most of the offers came while I had very little in savings.

My wife also had gic's and very little in savings and never had offers.

thanks all for the info re doing business with 'Tang'... might just have jump on that bandwagon, and see if we have the same luck with decent promos, over and above what is now the best 1-yr GIC rate that I know of.

Even when I had over $100K in Tangerine, they NEVER gave me a bonus offer. I'd eventually read about them here and call to ask, but they'd agree only sometimes and never for as good a rate as others received.

Guess they just didn't like me. The feeling became mutual.

Wow ... that new 1Yr rate is unusually high, for Tangerine ❗

If I wasn't still in my 'Wait-And-See' mode,
I'd give it some serious consideration.

I am going to give it serious consideration, when my 1-year Tangerine GIC at 1.25% matures early 2023.

The pain of not following 'Wait-and-See' mode at the beginning of 2022 is real. sf-cry
