    Get 2.5% interest on new deposits made between August 5 to September 30
    Interest available for chequing, savings and TFSA accounts: Interest First and Interest Plus accounts.

    Interest paid December 31.

    Call PC Financial 1*888*723*8881 or go to the PC pavillion in store.

    Tip: wait time for calling may be 30 minutes. We went in to the PC pavillion in the grocery store and did it right away.

    I e-mailed Tangerine Bank (formerly ING). Tangerine quietly lowered their interest rate to 0.8%. I told them about PC's rate and ask if they could match it. Doesn't hurt to ask.

    Will TD match President's Choice financial's rate? Maybe keep TD and open a PC Financial account. You can link PC to TD chequing.

    Called Tangerine. Told them about President's Choice 2.5% rate. Told them I heard that some new Tangerine customers were getting 3% rate. Asked if we could get 3%. Done. Easy peasy.

    Conditions: Earn 3% interest on all new money into a Tangerine savings account. Money can be deposited beween now and September 30. Interest will be paid November 30.

    I was very annoyed to see the drop in the interest rate. Its not like banks dropped their LOC rate by .5%.
    I just keep moving the money between PC & Tangerine to wherever the incentive is, so far it has work that the Emergency Fund has been in one account when the other account puts the higher rate in place so when I move it back the interest is pretty decent as the account it goes to was most likely at 0.
    Friends don't let real friends pay full price.

    well, they did NOT let me have the 3%, I told them the same PC story.
    I am starting to see that only certain customers are valued to them, we are not in that group I guess? Congrats Shwa!!

    @walkonby , call again. Please. You may get a different representative. Also, ask to speak with a supervisor. Tell them that you are reading online that others are getting the rate. And tell them you may have to move your money to PC to get a better rate.

    Hope this helps.

    The gal I had even had the nerve to ask me what kind of a deposit was I planning on dropping in there ( $$ amount ) I thought that was not something that should even matter but it was a significant deposit and yet she said they could still not offer that 3% to me. Not sure if I want to bother trying begging them, I am past that. I'll see how I feel tomorrow. thanks
