Dude, it is very easy to criticize without anything useful, that is one of the reasons people stop posting deals here.
Are you treating yourself like a judge? I say your post is just worthless.

To the minimum, at least post why you thinking that way with some facts, so that it can help people improve in the future.

I just don't get why tangerine 2.5% online saving is a deal, EQ 3 year 3.25% GIC is not.

Actually according to their FAQ's:

"What if something comes up and I need to cancel?
Life happens. And we get that. Our GICs are non-redeemable but if it’s within one business day after the effective date of your purchase, you can cancel online."

So, it seems like most GICs we can buy, you are stuck.... (unless you cancel within the first business day of buying it)!

Dumb question: I never dealt with EQ bank before. Seems like an online bank. Is it safe? What if the bank goes bankrupt?

Looks like Oaken is keeping up with EQ, or vice-versa, here.

https://www.oaken.com/gic-rates/

Oaken is better for 2 years, but for 3-4-5 they are tied.

EQ's 15 month is worse than their 1 year.. odd. And 27 month is marginally worse than 2 years.

So basically, for less than 3 years, Oaken is better; above that it doesn't matter.

I think their system for purchasing GIC's is down...confirmed by tech chat. Even after being around for a few years, they still seem to have lots of glitches.

I also don't know anything about EQ Bank and did some research. Found this in wiki:
  • ninth largest independent bank,
  • completely online with no branch location,

well Wikipedia is much more reliable than a financial adviser who only thinks about himself.

People must be really stupid to require a financial adviser.

that being said, I rarely put in GIC, as calling tangerine consistent will even up a gic , while my savings account allow me to use funds whenever i need

A financial adviser is making money out of ur money, the only difference is they can just lose all your money, they pretty much have 0 risk.
