So, for half of June onward, you're only earning 3.25% or 3.35% on balances to $100,000. But it's a good promo. I'd take it, if I didn't have ~$75,000 tied up in a 4.00% CDIC insured Coast Capital Savings GIC until December 2020. ;)

4% GIC! That's a good deal man!

Yeah, I took it out in early 2018, I believe, when Coast was doing a deposit raise special that was a 33-month non-redeemable GIC with a one-time convertibility option to a new GIC with a higher rate, plus a 0.10% bonus if you switch, that has a maturity equal to or longer than the remaining term for the existing GIC. Suffice it to say, I didn't expect I would need to convert my GIC. ;)
