Haven't tried yet - I have another 10 days or so.

Let us know if you are able to get any further promos!

I'm on 3% until end of Dec for mine.

I would assume the next batch won't be out until early Jan. Maybe late Dec? Usually you can call and complain and they give you 3 months 1.6% which is better than the default 0.8%

Tangerine is SUCH a waste of time. They should stop messing with people.

Mines expires today Dec 5th. I called last week, was told no promos at this time. I was asking for the regular savings account.

Is there a secret to asking Tangerine and getting Tangerine to give you a special promo rate?

i.e. deposit large sum of money into account and then call them telling them you are moving it out if they don't give you a special rate?

I think you have to be lucky caller number X.

I've typically just asked the rep if they could extend my existing promotion and they've usually obliged. At least once I had to threaten to leave and tell them where I was planning to transfer the money and what the rate was.

But it seems like Scrooge may be running the show at Tangerine this Christmas.

My promo rate expires on Dec 28 I think ...

I called few days ago .. and was vaguely told it's 0.8% ... but it was too early anyhow ... that's why he told me there was no promo rate on my account yet ..

Would be funny if finally they would not been offer anything but 0.8% ...

My money would travel to EQ or Alterna or whoever else in no time :)

I just called them .. to test the water basically (way to early, considering I got 3 more weeks to go until promo end Dec 28) ....

And ... "my luck" basically, lol .. - their "system is down for scheduled maintenance" until 7 am or something like that ...

Well .. those are different products ... Savings account is a different product from those two.

Mines expires today Dec 5th. I called last week, was told no promos at this time. I was asking for the regular savings account.
Well .. that sounded quite negative to me ...

So.... I called again this morning, just now (now that their system is back up, that was down due to maintenance when I called at night) ... and ended up speaking to supervisor about all this ..

She told me .. that I've been a good Tangerine client for many many years .. and 0.8% ( = no promo ) .. is incorrect info, in my case anyhow ... -- as of right now (as of today) they can / would give me 2% promo if I was to take that offer / deal today ..

Of course I didn't take it .. as I have 3 more weeks to go at 3% promo.

p.s.

by the way, I made the supervisor aware .. that EQ bank pays 2% as well (their current rate, not a promo rate) .. and that PCF started giving out 2.25% promos effective Jan 1, 2017 - March 17, 2017 (or something like that, as indicated in another thread here).

^ ^ ... the duration wasn't even an issue there (as I wasn't going to take it anyhow for now) ... so it was never brought up ... I would assume it would have been for 90 or 180 days (more likely for 90 days).
