I joined in February when they were accepting CU membership to non-Ontario residents. The credit card was still restricted to Ontario residents only, but that was never disclosed anywhere in the application process, nor in any of the card's documentation. I applied, got the hard hit on my Equifax report, and was then rejected for non-Ontario residency. I put up a big fight that lasted nearly two months, that involved phone calls, emails, and snail mails to two senior Meridian VP's offices, asking why did they let me apply and check my credit file if they have no intention of ever giving me the card. They finally caved in and issued me the card. It wasn't long after that they made the card available to all Canadian residents, but it sounds like many of their staff are still not aware.shampygarg wrote: ↑Dec 17th, 2018 12:00 pmThanks! so clearly they are issuing the cards to non Ontario residents. Did they ask you any identification proof? if yes did you send them online or did it ask you upload a copy during the application process? As far as I know, it requires a regular HISA or any another online saving account first before you apply?
