Tangerine 2.5% Interest Rate February 6, 2018 to June 30, 2018 [TARGETED]

I forgot to active my offer at the end of last month, but I just received an email from Tangerine

Dear ****,

Smart saving habits are key to reaching your financial goals. And to help you get there faster, we have a special interest rate of 2.50% for you. Just activate before

1. Activate by February 28th to put your special interest rate in place.
2. New deposits to these Accounts from February 6, 2018 to June 30, 2018 will earn your special rate of 2.50%.



the fine print is :


Earn More Interest with Your Special Savings Rate Until June 30, 2018

You’re earning 2.50%* on new deposits to your Tangerine Savings Account(s), Tax-Free Savings Account(s) and RSP Savings Account(s) until June 30, 2018. Why not move money to your Account(s), or open a new Account, to make the most of your special rate?


Here’s How It Works:

We totalled up the balances of your eligible Savings, TFSA and RSP Savings Account(s) as they were on February 5, 2018 to get your total balances per Account type
From February 6, 2018 to June 30, 2018, you’ll earn your special interest rate on new deposits over your total balances calculated on February 5, 2018(up to $500,000 per Account type)
The rest of your Account balance will earn the current posted rate

Got this too. :) Time to go back from EQ to Tangerine.

Thread says targetted. I'm not yet with Tangerine. Do all HISA Tangerine account holders qualify?

Edit: looks like it, went to their website. They're advertising it with referral and pre-auth/scheduled deposits incentives for new customers.

Looks like they want people to jump ship from Simplii asap.

Simpii is earning 3% right now until Feb 28. I love playing the rotating deposit game. I will move all cash out of Simplii on Feb 27. EQ is always the backup.

There are several huge threads about the ongoing Tangerine interest rate deals. They send out targeted "new deposits" offers like this quite frequently, but you don't necessarily need to receive the offer to qualify - you can call in and ask for it (YMMV). A lot of people move their money out of their Tangerine savings account just before the new round of offers every 3 months so that it can qualify as new money, then call in and get the offer, and move it back. But some of us don't even bother doing that - we just call in and tell Tangerine that we'll move our money out to a higher-interest account elsewhere if we don't get their latest offer, and they extend the offer anyway on existing money without needing to move it around. This is all YMMV, so read the other threads and brief yourself on the right things to say before calling in. The Tangerine agents seem to have a set of specific criteria, and they usually have to consult someone before extending the offer if you weren't targeted. The criteria seem to include your account balance, your account history, and you referencing a specific competitor offering a higher interest rate.

Back in October when the targeted offer was 2.75% I called in and was offered 2.0%. Six figure amount on deposit. I asked for a match at EQ's rate. A hold while the supervisor was consulted. Answer was "no". All I have ever had with them was a savings account and concluded that they were not interested in my one product business.

What about under Insights? They moved the offers thing around, it's a bit of a mess right now.

If you are going to play the high interest account roulette game, tangerine is the best account to start with. For me the reason is they have the simplest solution for linking to accounts at other banks. Along the way, you earn a few pennies for free. They also don't have new money requirement that a lot of the competition use to limit eligibility.

I have to mention that tangerine offers a referral credit. Of course, the usual caveat, don't beg for referrals here as it's not allowed.

I just called to try and get a promo rate for my entire balance. I was told that I can get 2.5% on the entire balance of my savings accounts only, but the 2.5% promotion would NOT include money in my tax free savings account.

When you called to get a promo rate for the entire balance, does the promotion include money in your TFSA? That's actually pretty important for me because that's the only money I don't want to move in and out when a promotion period ends.

Simplii makes it harder to link accounts than Tangerine, but once linked, the convenience of linking an unlimited number of accounts is next level (compared to Tangerine, max 3 external accounts).

To link to Simplii, call them, have them send you the secured email. Complete the PDF form. Then, include void cheque or a document from the other bank (EQ) including the account number and must be stamped by the bank.

I'm still in the process of linking external accounts to Simplii.

I got the offer and activated it but under the details it’s still only showing 1.1%. Should it be updated to the promo rate or will I get screwed and have to fight for my interest at the promo rate?

That I could not say. I have a TFSA there (which may be one reason why they are more willing to give me the offer on existing money), but I keep my TFSA in their balanced fund since it's long-term money. Tangerine's Balanced Fund is not the greatest performer, and it suffers from high management fees, but it still returns much more than a savings account long-term, even after the recent market crash cost me 2.5%.

Click on your Savings Account, then Account Details, and you should see this:

"Current Interest Rate 1.1%

Special offer: Earn 2.5% interest on your Account until (your date), 2018."

.., and under your account transactions you should see Promo Interest in addition to regular interest.
