The Tangerine Bank (the "Bank") New Client Interest Rate Offer of 2.75% (the "Offer") is available to new Tangerine Clients:
Whose “Client Number” (as defined below) with the Bank was created between March 20, 2019 and April 30, 2019; and
Who open an Applicable Account (as defined below) within 90 days of the date their Client Number was created ("Eligible Clients").
A Client’s Client Number is created when he/she 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.
The Offer is available to Eligible Clients on all deposits made within 182 days* from the date the first Applicable Account was opened (the "Promotion Period") to a maximum of $1,000,000 per Applicable Account Type as defined below.
The Offer is only applicable to deposits made during the Promotion Period to Tangerine Savings Accounts ("Savings"), Tangerine Tax-Free Savings Accounts ("TFSA Savings"), and Tangerine RSP Savings Accounts ("RSP Savings") (collectively referred to as "Applicable Accounts") where the Eligible Client is the Primary Account Holder as described in Section 11 below. A number of similar Applicable Accounts (for example, 3 separate TFSA Savings) is defined as an "Applicable Account Type". The Offer is not applicable to any other Account types, including (but not limited to) the Tangerine RIF Savings Account, Tangerine US$ Savings Account, Tangerine Business Savings Account, Tangerine US$ Business Savings Account, Tangerine TFSA Kick Start Account, Tangerine Children’s Savings Account or Tangerine Chequing Account.
A Promotional Interest rate 2.75% will apply to eligible deposits under this Offer. Subject to the limits and qualifications outlined in these Terms and Conditions, Promotional Interest will be calculated daily and paid monthly on deposits made during the Promotion Period to Applicable Accounts. Eligible Clients will receive Promotional Interest in two separate interest payments – (1) interest calculated at the posted rate of interest listed on the Bank’s website (the “Posted Rate”) is paid at the end of the month in which it was accrued, (2) an additional interest payment that represents the excess of Promotional Interest over Posted Rate interest (“Additional Interest”) is paid at the start of the month following the month in which it was calculated. For clarity, Promotional Interest equals the sum of Posted Rate interest and Additional Interest. The Posted Rate may change at any time without prior notice, resulting in a corresponding change to the additional interest rate so that the Promotional Interest rate remains unchanged. Notwithstanding the above, the Bank may change the Promotional Interest rate at any time without prior notice.
After the 182-day Promotion Period ends, or the combined balances on any given Applicable Account Type reaches $1,000,000 whichever comes first, all balances in the Applicable Accounts will earn interest at the Posted Rate payable on the Applicable Account (see Section 5 for more details).
Once the Eligible Client's first Applicable Account has qualified for the Promotional Interest rate, subsequent Applicable Accounts opened by the Eligible Client during the Promotion Period will also earn Promotional Interest up to a combined maximum of $1,000,000 per Applicable Account Type. For subsequent Applicable Accounts, the Promotional Interest rate will end at the end of the 182-day Promotion Period calculated based on the first Applicable Account opening, or the combined balances in the Applicable Account Types reaches $1,000,000 whichever comes first (see Section 5 for more details).
Example 1: If a Client opens their first RSP Applicable Account on November 3, 2018 and a subsequent RSP Applicable Account 60 days after opening the first Account, the Promotional Interest will be paid only until May 4, 2019 or until the combined balances in both RSP Applicable Accounts reaches $1,000,000 whichever comes first, on both Applicable Accounts.
Example 2: If a Client opens their first RSP Applicable Account on November 3, 2018 and a subsequent Savings Applicable Account on 60 days after opening the first Account, the Promotional Interest will be paid only until May 4, 2019 on both Applicable Accounts.
All deposits to TFSA Savings 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.
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 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 Account Types (i.e. $1,000,000, across all Savings, $1,000,000, across all TFSA Savings and $1,000,000, across all RSP Savings). Any balances greater than $1,000,000, will earn interest at the applicable Posted Rate of interest payable.
Interest is calculated daily and paid monthly for both the Posted Rate interest payments and the additional interest payments. Any Applicable Account closed prior to the payment of additional interest will forfeit any additional interest calculated during the month in which the Applicable Account is closed.
The Offer is only applicable to Applicable Accounts where the Eligible Client is the person whose name appears first on the Bank statement (the "Primary Account Holder"). For Applicable 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 Applicable Account.
This Offer cannot be combined with other promotional rate offers. Where an Eligible Client qualifies for more than one promotional rate offer from the Bank, this Offer will be applied to the Eligible Client’s Applicable Account(s) first, to the exclusion of any other promotional rate offer.
