The new ATMs are provided by a different bank. CIBC has removed their Simplii ATMs from SuperStore locations: http://simplii.intelliresponse.com/?req ... my+account

Your loss. Both Simplii and Tangerine are part of the savings account lottery, Simplii allows linking many more external accounts than Tangerine, Simplii allows free unlimited checkbooks, free unlimited e-transfers, etc.

I can't wait for the mountain of confusion that will erupt when the "new PC Financial Banking" operated by PC Bank is confused with the "old PC Financial Banking" operated by CIBC.

Sadly knowing loblaws they won't care about the confusion and will use a modified old brand anyways, a la PC Optimum.Jucius Maximus wrote: ↑ I can't wait for the mountain of confusion that will erupt when the "new PC Financial Banking" operated by PC Bank is confused with the "old PC Financial Banking" operated by CIBC.
I sure hope PC Bank comes up comes up with a unique name for their new banking service, or they will have a serious branding problem, and a lot of call centre time wasted due to confused former customers.

Since signing up with Simplii for their original 3% promo they have not provided me with one reason to go back to them.
2) Simplii allows linking many more external accounts than Tangerine,
Although there are only 3, I have not run into an issue (I do have a spouse account I can use though)
3) Simplii allows free unlimited checkbooks,
I have received free 50 checks for each of personal, wife's personal, and joint. 150 free checks. I have enough checks to last a looooong time.
4) free unlimited e-transfers
Seems nice but if you want to send money today in the next 30 min and I don't have $ in chequing account then you are SOL. I'll stick with other options.
5) You only gain when you use both. If you substitute one for the other, you're not really gaining, unless free cheques and CIBC ATM access aren't important to you and you're not into e-transfers
The future remains to be seen but I haven't seen another "lottery" offer from them and I won't be signing up for a chequing account until they remove the 24 hour delay on moving my money from Simplii savings to Simplii Chequing.

They won't miss you, they have plenty of happy customers like me who actually read the many notifications about the switch from PC Financial to Simplii, including the fact that their ATM's would now charge a fee for using your Simplii card. It's not their fault you ignored the notifications.

There's just a lot more of them around here in BC. Since all the CU ATM's are linked on the Exchange network there's over 3X the machine availability of CIBC.

Yeah, it definately depends on an individuals personal situation (or in this case, geography). For those of us in Vancouver, those Exchange ATMs are everywhere. As much, if not moreso, than even CIBC ATM machines.
