Nice. Immigrants are also more likely to have dealt with HSBC back home.

So it's a 3 year term? Or it's a 5 year term, but you have no penalty after 3 years?

Hmm, nice product indeed. Currently have a P-0.55 but with such a rate difference, may be worth it to break current mortgage to go with this.

That's a nice deal!

What are the bank fees like to keep their chequing account open? How long do you have to pay out of the chequing to be elgible for the $1500; can you change it after a month? year? 5 years?

Definitely. I'm on p-70bps and am all but certain to switch in.

Chequing account fees waived if mortgage > $150k. Did not ask re: how long you had to keep the payments coming out of the HSBC account - given that fee is waived with > $150k mortgage, it didn't matter to me.

Interesting. I've got a 5 year fixed rate of 2.39 with First National. Time to look into what the penalty would be
