Tangerine - Multiple Chequing Accounts

I opened a second chequings account with Tangerine today, so now I have 2 chequings under the same account.

I believe last time I tried to open a second account (a few months ago), it only allowed if I had a co-applicant.

Is this a recent change (maybe with their new beta website), or were you always allowed to do this?

Sounds like a new feature, or a bug (sometimes aka a new "feature" :))
POLL: How frequent is your RRSP-matching?
Plastiq: Pay any bill with credit card for 0-2.5% fee (help meet min spending and keep old cards active!)
Rewards program transfer times (e.g. SPG->Aeroplan, Marriott->SPG, Amex MR->SPG...)

Hopefully its a permanent feature, it's so convenient being able to use the 2nd account as "Savings" on a Point of Sale terminal! Much easier to manage funds for me

So probably 2 chequing max is the limit then.

Yes, the new info from this thread is that apparently they let OP open two individual accounts, which never worked before.

Yup. It worked for me as well. So regardless of personal or joint, we can have two chequing accounts at max and another set of free cheques.

Do you get $50 or whatever promo they have for opening a chequing account (even if it's the 2nd one)?

I got the beta invite email to login ... I can't add a "spending account" at all, I get ...

"The feature you’re looking for hasn’t yet been launched in our new site. But it’s coming soon.

In the meantime, we’ll take you to the page you need on the existing tangerine.ca site so you can use the feature you want and continue with your banking.
"

Loophole closed already?
