Oaken has pretty good GIC rates if you are able to lock up your money for 18 months.

Petition ING to bring back ING Direct. Used to be so great.

Alternative for what? A no-fee chequing account? Something else?

If you only have it for a HISA, then you just leave your account open, and whenever there is a new promo, transfer money in, and when the promo ends move it out. Don't bother with begging, just go with the flow.

Which bank do you suggest? I'm under the impression that once you are an established customer Tangerine no longer gives you promos?

EDIT: Personally I'm looking for an increased interest rate on my account.

It's capped at $1M. Anything over earns the puny rate.

Not in motive at 1.75% when there are better rates elsewhere.
