Tangerine non-secured LoC?

Got an email from Tangerine telling me that I was pre-approved for a unsecured line of credit with 3.99% for the first 90 days.

Anyone got one? Is this legit?

I have an unsecured line of credit with Tangerine, but it was grandfathered in from ING Direct.

Why I think your offer is legit: I have one, and it works great.

Why I think your offer isn't legit: When I talked to Tangerine about increasing my credit limit, they said that Scotiabank dropped the product and I should just be grateful I already have it

I know that doesn't 100% help, but maybe knowing the product exists makes it believable that Scotiabank changed their mind and has brought the product back.

Got it too, seems legit to me? You can go on the Tangerine site and accept the offer.

I am also seeing the 2.99% offer, for $25,000, but in only one of the three family accounts. Before I accept, did anyone get a higher limit or lower rate?

When was that? Everyone at Tangerine should have known this was coming for a long time:

The only mystery is why "not a difficult product to develop" that was promised within the year ended up taking 20 months to see the light of day.

Just received an offer for 2.99% for 90 days and Prime+1% thereafter, unsecured, $30k limit. Wow, great.

I guess I am the poorest of the bunch. I got Prime + 4 and 3.99 for 90 days, and only $10k limit.

Got one too... I guess this means I don't really need to think about HELOCs given the rather low for unsecured prime + 1%...
