MAKE SOME MONEY!
Aside from my investments for retirement, I like getting good rates on savings accounts instead of bad ones. A small % difference can make a large difference over a period of time as your amount of money increases.
To do that I have discovered and use Achieva Financial and Tangerine, (the former Ingdirect.ca has been bought by the Bank of Nova Scotia) So I guess it won't look orange anymore, but rather a tangerine color. :)
I use Achieva because it is in Manitoba and gives 2% in savings accounts. Compare that to amounts here in Ontario or more specifically the Niagara Peninsula. Can you even get anywhere close?
If you wish to save some money too, we can both benefit. You get some money from joining either Achieva or "Tangerine" and I get some money for referring you.
However that is only the begining, since every dollar you put in their hi interest savings will give you 2% return.
Meridian has an online only rate of 1.75% but it is very inconvenient if you wish to schedule a transfer out at a later date. They WILL NOT let you do it. That is why I switched to Tangerine for scheduled transfers when I want them not when an organization allows me to.
