More info on this credit union: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coast_Capital_Savings

I only see that "If you're a new member, you'll need to purchase $5 in Membership Equity Shares."
They have expanded federally recently, and as such, I assume are on a big push to sign up new customers, with a lucrative $500 offer. They have been on the west coast for years and are quite popular on Vancouver Island/LowerMainland. Ive been with them about 20 years with no complaints

From Wiki
"Coast Capital Savings found its beginnings in 1940 as a co-operative of BC government employees later emerging as Pacific Coast Savings Credit Union throughout a series of mergers of local Vancouver Island credit unions. Seven years later, Surrey Metro Savings and Richmond Savings were formed in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia.[5]

I signed up threw the other post.

Website- I signed up at 11pm PST so the website seemed to work allot better.

Deposit- I pm someone for a referral so I deposited $110

Then I set up two different auto payments to CTFS and PC Financial for $51.00 each month on the 11th.

I will update when any bonus hits

Any branch in GTA ? Seems like a good deal - just wondering if I should keep it after getting the bonus.

I signed up 2 days ago, they needed to review my account before approval apparently.. (located in ON).

To do the 2 PADs, you can use either PayTM or Amex Bill pay (pay from amex website)

Lucky you, you avoided the 300$ and will get the 500$ instead.

Does tangerine pulls work? They specifically mentioned that interfund transfer does not count as PAD but that's the case for RBC and TD chequing offers and it worked

Just applied and got this same message - will update when the account is opened and I'm planning to pay my Amex cards through the Amex site to fulfil the bonus.

Thanks for posting, OP!

You have to change the province to BC.

I did that and it worked fine. It also accepted my application and everything without the errors that were mentioned by others - took all of 5 minutes (just did it now). I'm just getting ready to e-transfer the money into the account now for the initial deposit (and $5 membership fee).
