I received notification e-mails. The first one which was probably the most important one, pointed to a dead link. The others also pointed the links, and did not actually contain the important information like the when the they raised the threshold for no fees. The only way I found out about those was visiting the branch.

The main thing though that has pissed me off, is every single deposit the put a hold on. And the hold is always the upper limit to what the law allows. If you schedule a deposit, and then a payment, you better give at least 7 business days between the two. Probably more, because they first take there own sweet time doing the deposit, and then put on the hold. So 10 business days is probably safer. It is like they are designing their banking based on 1980's banking rules combined with the goal to rake in the most money possible from bank fees.
you can try to e-transfer to it. The hold day is likely 0 days as with other banks.

I've already done 6 consecutive month PAD. (twice or three times a month by Paytm)
Can't wait to say good bye to Meridian.
6 months are way too long for $300.
Koodo $34 / 10GB (unlimited talk)
Freedom Mobile 39 / 11GB (1GB Nationwide and US roaming)
Cogeco $60 / 120 up, 10 down, unlimited (Niagara Region's Internet speed sucks.)

I have absolutely no idea what type of transfer it uses when I tell meridian to transfer money from my tangerine account. But I believe in involves Tim Conway's character from the Carol Barnette show, being the express courier. And I have no idea why they then put a hold on the money.

This bank sucks and we’re all just here for our $300.

Requirement was to do 1 preauthorized payment/month. Were you doing additional just to be on the safe side?

I don't think it needs to be the same PAP. As long as you have 6 consecutive PAPs, you qualify for $300 bonus. Any thoughts?

4) Switch one (1) Qualifying Direct Deposit for at least 6 consecutive months, and/or set up one (1) eligible
recurring pre-authorized payments for at least 6 consecutive months, and comply with the conditions set out
below.
This Offer expires at 11:59 p.m. on June 30, 3019 (the “Offer Expiry Time”) and the first Qualifying Direct
Deposit must be received before 11:59 p.m. on August 31, 2019. The first withdrawal taken from the chequing
account for a pre-authorized payment must be successfully cleared through the account on or before 11:59
P.M. on August 31, 2019.
I just called, and they said it needs to be the same PAP over 6 months. Guess I'm not eligible anymore.
