Nope, be worried. And I'm going to implore people ignore comments such as "people shouldn't worry too much!" and know just what you are getting into.

In the event of a compromise at Ampli, you are going to have to talk to your own bank and pray for a resolution, with the only protection being offered to RBC account holders. I'll include some of the legalese below that you are agreeing to. If Ampli is such a 'worry-free' offering, why do they choose not to protect everyone?

Oh and by the way, the other banks might not like the fact that you are providing your password and ID to a 3rd party. But don't take my word for it, call your bank. See how they feel about refunding you if Ampli is compromised. And don't be cocky to think it can't ever happen.

Here's what TD has to say: "TD does not endorse the application. In the event your banking is compromised resuling in loss, YOU are accepting the RISK. An investigation will occur and TD will not be found liable if it becomes apparant you have provided your account details to a 3rd party."

If you REALLY want that $10 incentive, at least use an account that presents zero risk to you because you have close to $0 in it and no overdraft or other accounts.

So here's a portion of Ampli's legalese, section 5 of the T&Cs that you are agreeing to:
It is your responsibility to review your agreements with your financial institution to determine whether disclosure to another party that offers services such as Aggregation Services is allowed, what the consequences of such disclosure may be and your liability in connection with such disclosure.

Limitation of Liability. You agree that neither we nor any of our affiliates will be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages, resulting from: (a) the use or the inability to use the Aggregation Service; (b) the cost of getting substitute goods and services; (c) any products, data, information or services purchased or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into, through or from the Aggregation Service; (d) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; (e) statements or conduct of anyone on the Aggregation Service; or (f) any other matter relating to the Aggregation Service.

No, Drop, you earn points buying from the list of merchants that is connected to them, when you reach a certain point you can use it to buy a GC. In Amplii, you earn $ and cash it out @ min of $15. You need to link an account on both of them.

What some people will do for 10 bucks.

Sometimes it's better to stay safe, and stop signing up for every little promotion thrown around, especially when it comes to banking.

One way or another, nothing is free!

Thanks just the same OP, this might be good for some.

Probably not the best idea to call TD and ask if they endorse and RBC product?

Asking for real though, no sass:
With Ampli being owned and operated by RBC, the account holders would be protected by the same encryption RBC client card users have so is your original statement really fair/true?
Like if RBC as a bank was hacked, yes then you're at risk, but Ampli has the same risk as getting a credit card from RBC so i'm trying to unpack your comment and appreciate you calling out the legal, I did not know! :)

I used a credit i rarely use with a lowered credit limit of $1,000, I’m going to remove it once i get my $10, and then change my passwords. I don’t mind the risk, a hack can happen at anytime but i think I’ll be fine for the next (at the latest) 10 business days. If Ampli gets hacked, then so does RBC.

Yep, credit card likely a much safer option. Most credit cards have a zero liability clause in their T&Cs.

Re: Ampli vs RBC, they’re likely kept very separate by design. If someone hacks Ampli, this wouldn’t imply that they get RBC data for non-Ampli users.

Thanks for the indepth info, going to remove my RBC account info from the app. They have good promos from time to time but not worth this risk.

Does unlinking a card mean they actually stop receiving information from the bank centre? Even though they know your cc number and expiry date and everything

Possibly, but I wouldn't count on it. You'd probably have to read their Privacy Policy and understand how they destroy data. And that's assuming they follow their own processes, they don't have rogue employees, etc. Best to just change your password (and use 2FA!)

You'll probably have to consult their Privacy Policy to know how they use your data.
