Saw this promo in branch on their TV, couldn’t find any more info online on the first year fee waived part
So went in today to apply

she told me that 1st year annual fee only waived if you are a new client, need to open a PBA (personal banking account) with RBC

I was an existing client, so I wouldn’t qualify

So if you don’t have a RBC account, this is a pretty sweet deal on this card

$350 westjet dollar (as long as you make a purchase within 3 months - doesn’t say any minimum spend)
FYF ($119 value)
$99 travel voucher
First checked bag always free

There is also an unwritten minimum for the applicant if the remainder of the household income is under 150k. Ie if applicant makes 10k and spouse makes 145k , you won't get it.

OP, do you know which bank plan it requires? If you are getting VIP plan, the bank plan itself already includes annual fee rebate upto $120 anyway so it's not a limited time promo.. One could combine with $300 chequing promo with this if RBC Signature No Limit Banking is included.

She didn’t say at all, just kept saying ”PBA” which stands for personal banking account

I just have the day to day banking, which the $4 fee is waived coz i have other stuff with rbc as well

If they are trying to get more people to sign up for expensive chequing accounts then wouldn’t it make sense that she’ll want to sell me the credit card AND say a vip account
but she didn’t. simply just told me I dont qualify

so if anyone has the time, try the day to day account?

Hot, but bank account has a unwaivable fee, even if you keep a minimum balance.

You need investments and a mortgage with RBC before they waive anything.

Shame, else I'd be in for one.

The full 4$ fee for the Day to Day chequing can be waived by having any RBC credit card and making a transaction every 90 days and having I think 500$ in RBC investments (I assume this could be a GIC or better a trading account). That account and the card I assume would qualify for this offer for FYF and 350$?

There's also the Day to Day savings account that's free. I'm not sure if this one is eligible. Did anyone just open this savings account only and get the FYF offer?
