It's a glitch on the website. Check Account Details in your savings account and it should confirm the 2.5% rate.
Doing this, mine says current rate 1% on both TFSA and regular savings. In my bonus offer list, the 2.5% is there, but it does not confirm I actually activated it, just that it was an "offer".

You mean that when you click on 'Account Details' after opening the savings account, you see nothing below 'Current Interest Rate 1%' ? What is see is"Special offer: Earn 2.50% interest until May 31, 2018 on up to $500,000 in new deposits to your Tangerine Savings Account(s), RSP Savings Account(s) and Tax-Free Savings Account(s) made between January 3, 2018 and May 31, 2018."

Yes, I see that, but I thought it was just another advertisement for the offer. It doesn't confirm I activated it. Anyways, I went ahead and deposited a large amount of money into savings last night. I assume it will work

to verify you have enrolled .....under the drop down menu under your name top right hand corner......Go to profiles and settings and click ... at the top of the page there are some item mentioned .....hit inbox....there should be a confirmation message you have activated your offer - "Confirmation that You've Activated Your Special Savings Rate Offer - 1/3/2018"

Hope this helps

For the account that I did NOT activate, the "Special offer: Earn 2.50% ..." message did NOT appear in Account Details. However, happy camper's post is more definitive.

I had the same issue and am wondering the exact same thing because when I tried to click "Activate" I got some weird error. I guess at some point I going to have to call to confirm but it doesn't give me any confidence that I actually GOT the offer.

If I move the money back to TD checking account from Tangerine TFSA account after May, will I be charged any fees for it? Thanks!

So for the first time ever Tangerine didn't offer 10 different promotions? Everybody got 2.5%?

If you move the whole account then yes unless TD is willing to cover/waive fees. If you simply transfer money then no but make sure you don't over contribute.

Yes, I believe so. Not including retention offers, everyone seemed to have gotten the same thing. Since the promotion length is different too, 5 months instead of 3, they are clearly trying to go a different direction this year.

I joined all the people here cancelling my accounts today. Tired of these 'new money' games and 0.5% credit card categories. Switching to EQ Bank and Fido Mastercard to keep things simple.

my lucky day, I price matched to EQ. No need to move out my money Smiling Face With Sunglasses
How did you price matched EQ? EQ specifically told me they NEVER match any offers, as their offers is always the same all the time, they don't play "promo" games on new money or specific timeline. And from my personal experience, this seems to be the case.
