I'm on the west coast and there is no Meridian Branch and what happens when i want to close my account? It sounds like i have to open a chequing account, use pay as you go to either write a cheque or transfer money out. Does anyone on the west coast have any experience opening/closing the account? For $100 on $1000 i wouldn't mind letting it sit for a year.

Thanks.

I had to call and cancel. I've read some other RFDers were able to close their account through the online messaging system when you log in.

When I called to cancel, the CSR I spoke with said I had to speak with some financial advisor first, who would call me back later and help close my account. Perhaps to convince me to stay otherwise?
Anyways, I had forgotten about that missed call for a week, called back to CSR and this time, the person was able to close the account.

Did you transfer your money out, or were they were able to mail you a bank draft?

Does this account have unlimited transactions? Because when I login I see online advantage savings instead of good to grow which has only 1 transaction free.

I checked the last thread. Online app is a soft hit, if it fails and you have to call in they do a hard hit

It auto links the cheque you send them. Take money out after promo, close account. I didn't even bothered activating the debit cards they send.
