How can I save money/ be rewarded for my business?



We know you work hard for your money and want to be able to save as much money as you can. We appreciate your business and want to be able to provide you with the account packs that help you save money, and match what's best for you (our member), while rewarding your business at the same time. Here are a couple of ways you can save and be rewarded:

  • Relationship Rebate: If you have products or services in 2 of the 3 categories (eg. credit card, loan, investment/savings), you can save almost 30% off your monthly price each month on your PowerPack account pack. Save $96 per year with the Relationship Rebate. (This is rebated at the end of the month with your monthly price).
  • Ways to get to $0 monthly price: In all levels of the personal SmartPack, you can receive a $0 monthly price (with the minimum monthly balance waive). And, with the Smart feature, you automatically move to the level with $0 monthly pricing, if you have a minimum monthly balance (it does the work for you, getting you the best deal).
    • Youth (19 and under), full-time post seconday students and seniors (age 60+) are eligible for one free SmartPack Account with free and unlimited transactions.
