Open a new bank account with Tangerine, and receive up to a $150 cash bonus.
Tangerine (previously known as ING Direct) is offering a nice little incentive to switch banks. New customers will get up to $150 when they come over to Tangerine. Receive:
- $50 Cash Bonus when you your first Tangerine Savings Account with at least $250 by the 30th of June 2014.
- $50 Cash Bonus when you open your first Tangerine Chequing Account with at least $250 by the 30th of June 2014.
- $50 Cash Bonus when you switch your pay to go directly to your Tangerine Chequing Account by the 31st of July 2014.
Together, those three cash bonuses add up to a free $150.
You can also look forward to a pretty high (compared to other banks) interest rate of 2.50% on all new deposits made by July 31, 2014 to a new or existing Tangerine Savings Account, RSP Savings Account, or Tax-Free Savings Account.
While Tangerine has no physical branches, that is what helps keep their costs low and the interest rate you get paid high. They also offer no minimums, fees, or service charges unlike many other banks. This is certainly an option I am considering since my student account is going to be no longer valid after June. Maybe I should apply now.
