4 Responses to Canadian High Interest Rate Savings Accounts

    I only use BC credit unions because my savings are over the banks deposit insurance. Any deposit of over a $100k should be deposited with a BC credit union. Credit union deposits are 100% insured.

    We get a better interest than any of the ones listed, at our local credit union. It is a better rate than what is on offer in the published rates of banks and eve our credit union. But we have a nearly 30 year relationship with the credit union, and put all our money there, so we are treated well. You could try the same approach.

    Actually, PC Financial offers all its banking and chequing services for free and if you keep a balance of $1000 in your savings account, you get 1.5% interest calculated daily. If you have less than that, you get 0.65% daily.

    The chequing and savings accounts are separate (you earn the high interest in the savings account, the chequing account rate is negligible). You park your money in your savings account and pull over whatever you need to your chequing to pay bills or take out money. It takes a little forethought, but it’s worth it.

      I agree with Jessica! I love PC for their NO FEE Chequing accounts! Don’t understand why people would want to pay banks any fees when they can be saving for using their own $$
