Tangerine Spring Savings (Targeted?) 2.76% on new deposits until June 30, 2016

This morning, I noticed this label in my account.
Earn 2.76% interest on up to $500,000 in new deposits to your Tangerine Savings Account(s) from April 5 to June 30, 2016.* Our regular posted interest rate is 0.80%, so this special springtime rate is designed as a boost to help you reach your savings goals faster.
2.76% being an odd rate, I feel like different rates are given out.
Nice gesture from Tangerine... But they royally pissed me off 2 months ago for not giving me any special rates. I moved my 200k to zag.

Remember this is only NEW deposits which bring your balance higher than it was on April 4th. Similar to most president's choice promos

If it's savings account, you could just move the money to chequing account, and then move it back to SA... I think that worked for me last time.

Anyway, got the 2.76% as well.

I didn't get anything either, but I'm on the 2% for 6 months, with zero balance as I told them I would be moving out if only will offer 2%.

I'm thinking people with existing promos don't get new offers (at least automatically). Oh well I'm 3% at EQ for now anyway.

Tangerine hate me.
better than nothing! I tried to get anything higher than .8 and they kept saying no. To my surprise, I see the 3% special rate in my account today :)

Interesting, different customer gets different promotion offer. This kind of marketing strategy really bothers me.

Got nothing as well. EQ Bank is not available to QC residents. Could it be the reason why ?

I see no labels for me :mad:


sidebar - I logged in yesterday to move my money, it shows withdrawal date of april 5th though - is that right? I made the transaction early in the day so well before closing, I thought it would be dated April 4th. Didn't get the confirmation email till 2.04am.

I got an 1.8% offer, seems to be the lowest in this thread hehe.

"Special offer: Earn 1.81% interest on up to $500,000 in new deposits to your Tangerine Savings Account(s) until Jun 30, 2016."

I already have all my savings at EQ Bank, so I'm not sure if I'll keep any money in the Tangerine savings account. Nice to know I haven't been forgotten, however.
