I have been a Simplii Financial user from before when PC Financial was around. Having a no-fee bank account was important to me and the free access to CIBC ATMs was a plus.
What has kept me as a customer with the choices available is the nice app for my phone and free e-transfers. I have been a happy customer and wanted to announce their new referral program.
When you use my referral link to open a new Simplii Financial account and add an eligible direct deposit of at least $100 a month for 3 straight months (payroll, pension or employment insurance should do the trick) and when you deposit $100+ within 6 months after account opening and keep $100+ in the account for at least 60 days, you can earn a $250 bonus.
In the past I have asked my payroll to split my payroll into percentages where I can distribute the payment across multiple accounts.
This is a nice bonus on top of a good bank from my experiences.
You will get your $50 cash bonus 15 business days after you meet the conditions of the Refer a Friend offer, and your $200 cash bonus 6 months after you meet the conditions of the No Fee Chequing Account offer.
