Calling 1.05% "high" interest is pretty high IMO

Technically you can get up to 1.950% interest if you don't withdraw your money for 360 days.
That is actually rather good. I will have to look into getting an account with them.

Isn't it similar to disrespecting the value of your money when you put it in these banks? I've heard if you do that then ur money will get really upset and ashamed of you for locking them up in jail. Neither they will grow, nor will they be useful when they get out of the jail. Inflation will laugh at it...

Banks are for those who haven't discovered credit unions. Getting double that rate at some credit unions. Alterna bank, a 'child' of Alterna Savings & Credit Union Ltd is offering an e-saving account paying 2.05%. And you are insured by the CDIC, just like the big bad 5 banks.

Who put money in Banks?

With cryptocurrency the average margin are much more impressive.

Minus 40%, but still impressive!

Yes, guess they followed the BOC Prime rate increase. Mind you they also increased the interest of any credit product that is Prime +, so mortgages, lines of credits, etc.
