So "package" is just a chequing account. So just need to park 4 or 5k for 4 months to get the 300. So I have that right?

Doese account need to be open for a year like RBC to be eligible? Or I can cancel once bonus is received like TD?
Do they do hard pull on opening chequing account?

With their weird "Momentum Saving" rate scheme, the interest rate until Aug 31st works out to just 2.1% using the 90 day term rate.

Do I understand this correctly?
The first option seems incredibly easier than the other two. Making a payment online and that's it? The third option requires you to have PADs for three months! What's the catch?

If one has an eligible credit card for the fee discount and at least 5K in cash, this seems to be a no brainier I think.

No monthly fee on the account + discount in annual credit card fee + 2.70% interest on your money is awesome. Not to mention the $300 bonus. Am I missing anything?

Interest on your cash is also nice for those who are afraid to invest in light of COVID.

EDIT: I have a Scotia chequing account so I guess I don't qualify for the $300.00 bonus. I assume the other perks are still in play though, which is not bad.

What if you applied to open online and they stated to come into the branch to finish the application? I never ended up going, but would I have been an account holder and thus ineligible?

I believe you can double dip with GCR offer. For example, Ultimate Package has $40 GCR + $300 bonus offer.

On top of that, apply for credit card through GCR and link to your chequing account and get annual fee waived. (which I've done in the past and it works).
