The rate is on new accounts, not on all new deposits.

[QUOTE]The special interest rate applies only: (i) to a customer's first Account (including Joint Accounts, where applicable) provided your first deposit is made on or after April 1st, 2009, and (ii) to balances up to and including $100,000 (for the HISA) and $5,000 (for the TFSA) for 90 days starting on the day of the first deposit into the Account.

Note that the bonus interest is for new accounts and not new customers. I already had a savings account, and just opened a TFSA. The CSR ensured me that I will get the +1% interest on the TFSA.

Is it a soft or hard credit hit?

I don't really care if it's the latter, but it would be good to know.

In general, how long does it take from when I send the cheque to getting the welcome package? Can I request the ATM card early, or do I have to wait until I get the package to do so?

you have to wait for the initial cheque to clear before u can order your atm card. Usually around 1-1.5 weeks.

Interest rate of 2.5%+1% Bonus for new accounts opened after April 1, 2009. Offer ends June 30th.

There is also a $25 bonus for setting up a Automatic Savings Plan.

Best savings rate out there, at least for the next 3 months!

Hmmm, i have a CTFS one and only mortgage that they charge me 2.5% (new rate as of today.) I wonder if i should deposit 100k of it into their high interest account and it'll pay me 3.5% for 90 days and make 1% :)
