Not sure what you want. Tangerine is quite awesome for free. Simplii looks like a clone of Tangerine.

The tangerine free etransfer works fine for me. Instead of 30 minutes it takes a few hours.

Tangerine etransfer isn't interac etransfer (they charge $1)
The downside to tangerine's free e-transfer is that the receiver has to enter their banking information which is a huge pain (transit #, account #, etc).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but would just setting up 2 automatic transfers to bank accounts like Tangerine and EQ Bank qualify as PAD's for this promo?

Can confirm that I also got the $200 deposited the same time too. I was worried that I would have to call in and complain and actually was planning on it, but I kept putting it off until the bonus just showed up.

It seems that this variation of the promo is a lot easier (either direct deposit or PAD), so as long as you're patient, I think this is definitely worth it. CIBC ATMs in abundance + free etranfers + no fees + free cheques makes this a no brainer.

Oh, for PADs, I was able to get PayTM to count (used the app to pay my bills), so I imagine Tangerine and other PADs should qualify.
You know what's the payment code used when they send payments via EFT?

They locked me out of this deal unfortunately because I have the savings account. I purposely only got a savings account in case there was a signup bonus coming for the checking... guess they got the last laugh?

THey my application and didn’t do anything with it so their service is terrible. Not gonna waste my time calling them for a status. A bank should Be professional enough to follow up on their own.

Does PayPal withdrawal count as a direct deposit or similar sites? I use a similar service to cash out and was wondering if I cash out twice over $10 will it fulfill my requirements?

Did anybody else get an email to call them at 1-888-872-4724 and speak to a personal banking rep after signing up?

I called the number but it was not possible to speak to a personal banking representative as the telephone prompt only gave the option of entering your debit card number (which I do not have yet) or to report your card stolen (which I have yet to receive).
1-888-723-8881 here is their number. You can call if you have any questions. Whenever you receive the card in mail you call them to activate

My experience so far during the sign up was very smooth. They sent me the signature card and identity check next day which I completed same day. I had the bank card in four business days (was Thursday to Tuesday) and was activated easily over the phone. They put you into a IVR for the telephone banking PIN.

The card PIN arrived a few days later but I requested that I get my PIN changed today while was very easy to do at the local CIBC ATM inside the branch. Just not that happy with waiting four months for that $200 bonus.

I received my debit card and activated it today, what is the easiest way to setup Pre-authorized debit bill payments from this account? Can I do this within the Account or I need to do it through my biller?
