Registration seems to be over but had been ongoing for nearly 2 months. 6 month promo duration and seems to adjust to base rate modifications, hence 3% became 3.15%. http://forums.redflagdeals.com/rbc-3-in ... t-2220375/
Never ended up bothering with it because had better options(HSBC 3.5%, Simplii 3.15%, Tang 3.15%).
CIBC at 3% seems like your best bet if unable to get more than 2.5% at Tang. I was on 3% with them and account was empty due to better options elsewhere, special dept called me out of the blue to inquire why I wasn’t using their “great rate” and matched Simplii. Didn’t move the Simplii money but am making use of the additional room at 3.15% because Simplii promo is capped at only 500k, Tang’s is 1000k.
Even without use of a partner a diligent saver could have several million at 3% today without straying from the big 5, irrespective of provincial residence.
