Are people still having trouble closing these accounts?

I remember a promo a ?few years ago where people reported Meridian giving you a hard time. I would open it just for the promo, I have enough accounts that I don't see the point... unless someone has specific reasons they keep their account vs tangerine or any of the other free ones

Never done an interac transfer. I prefer e-transfer.
Gotcha, how long does an e-transfer take?
Well, I am not a crook.

E-transfer is fast. Tops 30 minutes to land in your inbox, then open email and deposit to Meridian.

With the exception of WB and bigger PAP accelerator (and the oh so slightly more frequent redemptions), safe to say Meridian CBI has the absolute advantage over TD CBI. Get both.

Read the terms and conditions. Nobody will have received it.
In order to receive the incentive offer, the eligible Meridian account must be opened and have a balance of at least $1,000 on September 7th, 2018.

The awarded funds will be deposited by September 26th, 2018 once we have had the opportunity to verify the account, the qualifying deposit and your eligibility. The awarded funds are funds credited by Meridian to the Meridian Member’s account or certificate in the eligible recipient’s name opened or obtained by the recipient, in the amount of $100.00.

The offer is awarded on the condition that the recipient agrees to keep the awarded funds on deposit with Meridian for at least 90 days from the deposit date of the awarded funds as noted above in Section 4, and therefore these funds are not available for withdrawal or other use by the recipient until that time. Recipients must accept the offer in the form that it is awarded; no substitutes are permitted.

That's not by accident. I requested it closed several times, because they initially didn't do it. They wanna keep the accounts open and will blithely ignore your request.

Wow! I just tried to sign up, it told me there's a problem and to call them. So I tried signing in with my old account from 2016 and it says member inactive. These A-holes never closed my account even after several requests. I'm gonna call them.

Not worth the hassle then. I'm already dealing with the stupidity of major banks I don't need to deal with CU stupidity too.

Beware that the account needs to be opened online as per the Terms and Conditions. In case you have any verification issues.

I would like to get $100 for $1000 deposit in Meridian new account better than get $50 for $5000 deposit in Tangerine TFSA.

Promo is back! Open a new member account at Meridian, deposit $1k and collect $100 WB. Easy peasy.

I know @jacnel should be all over this.

Official page here.
The link in your post takes you to their regular 1st page with no mention of the deal, did they remove it even though it expires September 7? I believe it showed up a couple weeks ago.

So, it looks like they didn't close my account in 2016 because they had asked me for a security question verification to confirm closure and I never replied so they put it on hold. I asked if I can still participate in the current offer and they've emailed their online services to see whether it's possible given the circumstances and will get back to me via email (the old account is inaccessible given its inactive status.)
