I'm going to get this deal as I need a RBC checking account for some reason.

Some questions:
1. Is montly CCB (Canada Child Benefit ) from CRA qualified for the direct deposit?
2. for the qualifying conditions 3, do we need to do it repeatedly (monthly) or just once?
3. If I don't have mortgage at RBC, can I get multi-product rebate for Signature No Limit account? I have a RBC Credit Card and will open a TFSA account if I can get multi-product rebate.

Thank you!

RBC is probably the worst, when it comes to "deals".

So I did two paps from tangerine to rbc which posted august 30th but I didn't receive the order e-mail yet or a message in RBC message center, can it take longer than 2 business days? Although I don't know if it's been 48hours exactly since the pap's posted in my RBC account.

ok so I misread the conditions, they are not like the 2018 offer, it's 2 pre authorize payments and 2 payments to a service provider so 4 actions in total if you don't deposit your payroll. I thought it was only 2 pre authorize payments like the 2018 deal.

Does anyone know how much they charge if you close before the opt out date? Is it pro-rated or do they just charge you the full amount for the iPad?

I didn’t switch to RBC specifically for this deal. It just worked out that I wanted to go to a brick and mortar, RBC was the most recommended in my city, and I liked the account options etc. Well I have not been at ALL happy with them. (Most the app and online banking. Staff have otherwise been great) I don’t want to hold onto them for another 7 months. I want to go back to Tangerine and thankfully haven’t closed my account with them.
