They won't remove that 1.2% and 1.4% offers.
They actually automatically extended 1.4% offers for a few months. 1.4% offer originally was set to expire on Jan 31, 2022.

In the past, they would take my instructions to remove it even after I accepted it. Last month the rep said once its on the account, its there until expiry... crap
Of course they know what I want it removed, and they just make sure I wont be qualify for their next lottery...

I haven't received an offer in 1.5 years, but my wife got this one. Her previous offer expired at the end of January.

Question: How many concurrent overlapping "promotional" rates does Tang have at the moment? I lost count after 5 (1.2%, 1.4%, 1.6%, 2% and now 2.80%).

Yes, I remembered the 2% after I had posted the original. Tang is getting ridiculous with 5 (or more) overlapping rates.

Surprised when I logged in and got this offer too as my previous offer expired at end of January also. No use trying to figure that out but I'm not complaining.

Another Tang fiasco.

A family member got the 2.8% targeted promotional offer. So, I called Tang to ask for the same offer to be extended to me, as I was in the same household and knew about their policy previously. The CSR checked and confirmed the details, but could not comply since there was a security hold on my account. I would have to call back tomorrow to lift the security ban and then could get the offer at the same time.

Called back and sat for 1 hour on hold in order to reach a CSR whose only purpose was to transfer me to security, as there is no direct phone line. Sat for another 2 hours awaiting a reply.

Security tells me that their nightly review cleared the ban on their own. So, I just wasted 2 additional hours waiting for them to do absolutely nothing.

They transferred me back to CSR to get the promotional offer extension.

Got a CSR who said that it was fine, but he had to first validate the account. His phone connection was so bad that he had to throw me back into the queue for someone else to answer, before we could complete the process.

Another CSR answered and I made the same request. He checks and says that it was not possible. The 'household-extension policy' did exist, but did not cover the 'New Money' promotional offer. I told him that it most certainly did, because I had done it previously. He refused to grant the extension to my account. I asked him, 'Okay, if New Money offers will not be extended, tell me EXACTLY which offers will be extended under the same household policy.' At this point, he did not even reply, but immediately switched me back into the queue.

Another CSR answered and fulfilled my request.

Finally, success after only four hours. Any sliver of guilt I ever had over emptying my accounts at Tang at every possibility has now been assuaged. I will use and abuse them as much as I can and never will I extend them the simplest courtesy or loyalty.

Good to know about "family member extension policy". How do they verify ? Mention the family member name and they check if same household ? Or need to have both joint account plus each has own account as well ?

Did Tang confirm they fulfilled your request? Did you check your account and see the 2.80%?

The "family member" policy is not reliable. Sometimes they've given it to us, sometimes not. Beware: if it's not written down anywhere, then it's not a policy.

That was a question posed to me. One of the CSRs, the one with the bad phone connection, got my family member onto the phone to validate her identity. Unfortunately, the connection was so bad that she could not communicate successfully.

The other CSRs had no problem dealing with me solely. I do not know if it made a difference, but the family member already shared joint accounts with me. Therefore, it should have been easier for them to gain access to both profiles to verify that the addresses on file were identical.

The policy probably exists as most of the CSRs I contact know about it. If it was only an undocumented common practice, instead, then I would expect that far fewer CSRs would know about it; the reverse of what my experience is.

On an additional note, this was not the first time I requested the Same Household matching policy. I previously asked Tang to extend a 1.4% offer to my profile, under the same circumstances. The CSR refused and would only give me 1.3% I did not intend to use my account much, except for the occasional layover transfer deposit, so I did not belabour the point and just accepted the lower offer.

The CSR did tell me that the offer had been activated for my account. I only have telephone access and no online access. But you raise a good point and will try to re-confirm, so that there is no unhappy surprise at the end of the month.

-- Just called and re-confirmed the 2.8% rate

I was currently on a 1.3% offer, but the CSR had no problem cancelling it and superseding it with the 2.8% promotional offer.

I'm so glad that I only left $0.64 in my account when this offer appeared. sf-laugh
