Bank Sales and Promotions

Bank Sales and Promotions

Please note that the promotions that are listed on this post are outdated and an updated version can be found here.

The banks make a lot of money from you, so why not get a little something in return? All of the banks have sales and promotions, but most people don’t know about them. This week we’ll change that by listing all of the main Canadian bank sales and promotions. These include high interest rates, cash payments and more. Most of them are pretty standard, but a few occasionally stand out, specifically the periodical tablet deals. Keep in mind that these promotions can change at any time and it’s important to read the fine print. This article will be periodically updated as the promotions change and was last updated on September 3rd, 2015.

Past articles in The Best of the Banking Series can be found here; best chequing accounts, best online chequing accounts, best student/youth accounts, and best senior accounts.

Thanks again for reading and don’t forget to learn more about the Friendly Financial Coach, Toronto’s only non-biased Financial Literacy Coach.
