Manulife HISA 2.0% for 4 months

Deal Link:
Retailer:
Manulife
Manulife is running a promo for HISA (Advantage Accounts), 2% interest for 4 month. That's AFAIK the best promotion available right now from any bank/financial institution.

Limited time offer: Earn 2.00%* for 4 months when you open an Advantage Account. Enjoy the benefits of a high interest savings account with the flexibility of a chequing account.

2.00% promotional rate is for new deposits to a new personal, non-registered, Canadian-dollar Advantage Account. The promotional interest rate is made up of the regular posted annual variable interest rate of 0.15% and the variable annual promotional rate of 1.85%. Interest is calculated daily and paid monthly beginning on the date of application and continuing 120 days (4 months) on net new deposits to a maximum of $250,000. Any change to the regular interest rate will result in a corresponding change to the promotional interest rate. The offer is limited to one account per client and cannot be combined with other offers. The offer and rates are as of April 19, 2021 and subject to change without notice.
Terms and conditions of the offer are available here .

To see the offer go to https://www.manulifebank.ca/personal-ba ... count.html, click "Open an Account" and you will see the promo on the next page.

It works for existing. It’s a new account number though

thanks for sharing. are there any implications I should be aware of? (need to maintain certain balance or get penalized with fees, etc). basically thinking of moving some amount of money during promo and move back to main bank.

I can open a second account if I am an existing client and obtain the promo on that second account?

Do we have to close the existing advantage account first and then open another one?

This is for new clients only, not available for me. I would think most HISA rate hunters already have Tangerine accounts. Manulife promo is available for everyone.

Warning to those with an existing Advantage account:

Don't transfer first to your existing account and then into the new Advantage account with the promo rate. That would not be considered new money and you will be terribly upset at the end of the month.

Nope, it’ll just be another account when you look on the account balance page

After opening this account yesterday ... -- now I have 3 similar accounts all together, lol.

Do you guys let those just stay there ... or do you remove some of them after some time?

I imagine only one account is sufficient there to remain an existing customer with existing account?


P.S.

Is there a maximum number of those similar accounts one can have there at Manu.?
