I used etransfer by accident and have to wait 2 days :( doing the same thing however there are some deals on there where you buy something from McDonald's or Starbucks and get $1-2 for free not bad, the no forex fee as well offsets a normal cash back mastercard doing purchases stateside, this beats Koho for sure even though Koho processes etransfer loads within 5 minutes

This. Use every card to its advantage.

I don't get it. I grabbed PAD info once I got the card and activated it, loaded it into PayPal, confirmed micro-deposits, called to remove block, and transferred $50.

Auto correct again?

I don't have a PayPal credit card (envying Americans right now). Funding Stack MC with PayPal went smoothly. Looks like it's equally slow to e-transfer with Stack 🤣

Oh. I thought you had PayPal credit card. Otherwise why setup pad with PayPal over bank like tangerine or eq?

Had money hanging out in there. Will probably move some to DUCA soon for the 3.25% HISA 3 month promo.

Ugh. I tried to play non-RFDer and load only $20 using Interac e-transfer, because Stack never mentions any $50 minimum. I got an email from HSBC saying the transfer failed, and to log in to online banking, go to the Pending Transfers section, and cancel the transfer to reclaim the money. But there are no pending transfers listed there, and my account balance is $20 less. Where did the money go?? Now I have to wait on the phone with HSBC trying to get the $20 back. Why isn't Stack forthcoming about the $50 minimum (if indeed that is what went wrong). Not impressed.

Trying to load $50 with Interac Online using RBC and it keeps telling me Unsucessul , something went wrong and it is asking me to call the number. I will wait when they open again. I'd like to be able to load up instantly when I need to

$50 minimum can't be right since another poster successfully received micro-deposits to link with Tangerine.

My PayPal micro-deposits were accepted as well. I then dumped $50 from PayPal to Stack MC. Don't wanna get shut down.

People's Trust knows ppl will link PAD creds as bank account, and won't flip when they see micro-deposits. Hey, it means you'll fund the card and use it.

I am getting annoyed by the app.

  • When I open the app I am asked for the app PIN. Fine. But about half the time after entering my PIN, I then have to log in again with my username and password. Why doesn't it remember me after entering my PIN? And then...
  • That super annoying 2-step verification. Is there any way to turn that off? It's hard to believe the hyper-security around the app compared to the poor security of the actual card.

Just found out that MBNA (à la TD) have added the 1% / $7.50 min fee to cash advances (plus the lousy 2.5% FTF remains). It's now more than useless, and perhaps only a mag strip to park MBNA CL. I otherwise have zero use for that "low interest" card now. Stack will be my ATM card when travelling overseas.

You are lucky, the app just crashes straight away for me (Android 8.1). Works fine on my iPhone though.

Are you trying to use the app on 2 devices?
That’s the same problem I was having using my iPad and iPhone.
This app cannot be used on 2 devices.
Once you login with one device, then try logging into the other minutes, hours or whatever later, you need to go through the whole verification thing again.
Once I discovered this, I deleted the app from the iPad and only use it on the iPhone.
No more issues.
