Terms and Conditions

Tangerine New Client 2.15% Interest Rate and Up to $250 Cash Bonus Bundle Offer

General Terms:

  1. The Tangerine Bank (the "Bank") New Client 2.15% Interest Rate and Up to $250 Cash Bonus Bundle Offer (the "Offer") is available to new Tangerine Clients:

    1. whose Client Number (as defined below) with the Bank was created between October 8, 2020 and November 23, 2020 (the “Offer Period”);

    2. who become a Tangerine Client using the applicable Promo Code (as outlined in Section 16);

    3. who open an Applicable Savings Account (as defined below) within 30 days of the date their Client Number was created; and

    4. who open a Tangerine Chequing Account within 30 days of the date their Client Number was created (collectively the “Offer Qualifying Conditions”).

    A “Client Number” is created when a new Client submits his/her personal information (including, but not limited to, name, mailing address and email address) to the Bank as part of the Account opening process and is assigned a unique identification number.

  1. An “Eligible Client” is one that meets all of the Offer Qualifying Conditions and who has never received a Tangerine cash bonus offer related to switching their eligible payroll direct deposits to any Account or a promotional savings rate offer from Tangerine or its predecessor/subsidiary companies at any time previously.

  2. The Offer is only applicable to Accounts where the Eligible Client is the person whose name appears first on the Bank statement (the “Primary Account Holder”). For Accounts where an Eligible Client is not the Primary Account Holder (Example: the Eligible Client is not the Primary Account Holder on a joint Account and is listed second on the statement for that Account), the Offer will not be applied to that particular Account. The Eligible Client must also be the Primary Account Holder on the Tangerine Chequing Account, if it is a joint Account.

  3. In addition to these Offer Terms and Conditions, all Terms and Conditions associated with all Accounts will continue to apply. “Accounts” includes Applicable Savings Accounts and the Tangerine Chequing Account.


Terms Specific to the 2.15% Interest Rate (the “Promotional Rate”):

  1. The Promotional Rate will apply to deposits made to an Eligible Client’s Applicable Savings Account(s) for 153 days (5 months) beginning on the date all Offer Qualifying Conditions have been met (the "Promotion Period"), to a maximum of $1,000,000 per Applicable Savings Account Type (as defined below).

  2. The Promotional Rate is only applicable to deposits made during the Promotion Period to Tangerine Savings Accounts, Tangerine Tax-Free Savings Accounts, Tangerine RSP Savings Accounts, Tangerine RIF Savings Accounts and Tangerine US$ Savings Accounts (collectively referred to as "Applicable Savings Accounts") where the Eligible Client is the Primary Account Holder as described in Section 3 above. Multiple Applicable Savings Accounts of the same type (for example, 3 separate Tax-Free Savings Accounts) is defined as an "Applicable Savings Account Type". The Promotional Rate is not applicable to deposits made to any other account types, including Tangerine Business Savings Accounts, Tangerine US$ Business Savings Accounts, Tangerine TFSA Kick Start Accounts, Tangerine Children’s Savings Accounts or Tangerine Chequing Accounts.

  3. The Promotional Rate of 2.15% will apply to eligible deposits as outlined in Section 5. Subject to the limits and qualifications outlined in these Terms and Conditions, interest on eligible deposits made during the Promotion Period will be calculated daily at the Promotional Rate (“Promotional Interest”) and paid monthly to Applicable Savings Accounts. Eligible Clients will receive Promotional Interest in two separate payments – (1) interest calculated at the posted rate of interest listed on the Bank’s website which is subject to change without notice (the “Posted Rate”) is paid at the end of the month in which it was accrued (“Posted Rate Interest”), (2) interest calculated at a rate that reflects the difference between the Posted Rate and the Promotional Rate (“Additional Interest Rate”) is paid at the start of the month following the month in which it was calculated (“Additional Interest”). For clarity, the Promotional Rate will always equal the sum of the Posted Rate and the Additional Interest Rate such that if the Posted Rate changes, this will result in a corresponding change to the Additional Interest Rate so that the Promotional Rate remains unchanged. Similarly, Promotional Interest will always equal the sum of the Posted Rate Interest and the Additional Interest. Notwithstanding anything in this Section, the Bank may change the Promotional Rate at any time without prior notice.

  4. Any Applicable Savings Account closed prior to the payment of Additional Interest will forfeit any Additional Interest calculated during the month in which the Applicable Savings Account is closed and will only earn Posted Rate Interest.

  5. After the Promotion Period ends, all balances in the Applicable Savings Accounts will earn interest at the Posted Rate payable on the Applicable Savings Account. In the event that the combined balances of any given Applicable Savings Account Type is greater than $1,000,000, any balances in those Applicable Savings Accounts that are above this maximum will earn interest at the Posted Rate payable on the Applicable Savings Account.

  6. Once the Eligible Client's first Applicable Savings Account has qualified for the Promotional Rate, subsequent Applicable Savings Accounts opened by the Eligible Client during the Promotion Period, up to a combined maximum of $1,000,000 per Applicable Savings Account Type, will also earn Promotional Interest for the duration of the Promotion Period.

    Example 1: If a Client opens their first RSP Applicable Savings Account and their Tangerine Chequing Account on August 22, 2020 and a subsequent RSP Applicable Savings Account 10 days after opening the first Account, the Promotional Interest will be paid on both Applicable Savings Accounts only until January 21, 2021 (i.e., 153 days from the opening of the first RSP Applicable Savings Account and Chequing Account) on balances of up to $1,000,000 combined in both RSP Applicable Savings Accounts.

    Example 2: If a Client opens their first RSP Applicable Savings Account on August 20, 2020 and their Tangerine Chequing Account on August 30, 2020, the Promotional Interest will be paid on the RSP Applicable Savings Account only until January 29, 2021 (i.e., 153 days from the opening of the Chequing Account) on balances of up to $1,000,000 combined.

  7. In the case of Applicable Savings Accounts where deposits are made by transferring registered funds through a T2033 form, those deposits will earn interest at the Posted Rate payable on the Applicable Savings Account from the time the transfer request is submitted to Tangerine and while the funds are in transit. Upon receipt of the transferred funds by Tangerine, the Promotional Rate will begin to apply to those funds only for the remainder of the Promotion Period, and provided that the Promotion Period hasn’t already ended when the funds are received.

  8. All deposits to TFSA Accounts and RSP Savings Accounts are subject to the limits imposed by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The RSP contribution limit is as noted on the Eligible Client's Notice of Assessment issued by the CRA. The Eligible Client is fully responsible for monitoring their individual contribution limits and ensuring any and all deposits fall within these set CRA limits. The Eligible Client further agrees to at all times indemnify and hold the Bank harmless in respect of any such penalties or charges imposed upon the Eligible Client as a result of these imposed limits.

  9. Subject to the imposed CRA limits on TFSA and RSP Accounts, Additional Interest will be paid on the first $1,000,000 of deposits made to each of the Applicable Savings Account Types during the Promotion Period. No deposits or eligible daily balances to which Promotional Interest would otherwise qualify will be greater than $1,000,000 across each of the Applicable Savings Account Types (i.e., $1,000,000 CAD across all Savings, $1,000,000 CAD, across all TFSA Savings, $1,000,000 CAD, across all RSP Savings, $1,000,000 CAD, across all RIF Savings and $1,000,000 USD, across all US$ Savings). Any balances greater than $1,000,000 will earn interest at the applicable Posted Rate.

  10. This Promotional Rate can’t be combined with other promotional savings rate offers. Where an Eligible Client qualifies for more than one promotional savings rate offer from the Bank, the Promotional Rate will be applied to the Eligible Client’s Applicable Savings Account(s) first, to the exclusion of any other promotional savings rate offer.


Terms Specific to the $200 or $250 Cash Bonus (the “Cash Bonus”):

  1.

    1. Eligible Client’s first payroll direct deposit must be received in their Tangerine Chequing Account with 60 days of successfully opening the Chequing Account, and

    2. Eligible Client’s subsequent payroll direct deposits must continue for at least 3 consecutive months.
