† The Simplii Financial™ High Interest Savings Account Promotional Interest Rate Offer for New Simplii Clients (the “HISA Offer”) is available between August 1, 2023 and October 31, 2023 (the “Offer Period”). The following terms and conditions (“Terms”) explain in detail how you can earn a special annual interest rate of 6.00% for 5 months on your first Simplii Financial High Interest Savings Account (“HISA”). To accept this offer, you must open an Eligible HISA during the Offer Period and make a deposit to your Eligible HISA during the Promotional Rate Period (as such capitalized terms are defined in these Terms).
1. Promotional Rate Period
If you meet the eligibility criteria and other conditions described in these Terms, the balance of your Eligible HISA (up to $1,000,000) will earn Promotional Interest for 153 days (which is about 5 months) from the date the HISA was opened (the "Promotional Rate Period").
To be eligible for this HISA Offer, you must:
• be a new client with no prior relationship with Simplii Financial (a “New Simplii Client”). To become a Simplii Financial client, you must apply and be approved for a Simplii Financial product. When you apply for your first Simplii Financial product, we will create a unique client identification number for you (your “Client Number”); and
• open a HISA for the first time as the primary accountholder during the Offer Period and within 30 days after your Client Number was created (“Eligible HISA”).
If you qualify, your Eligible HISA will earn promotional interest during the Promotional Rate Period (subject to certain restrictions as outlined in Section 4). Only your first Eligible HISA will qualify for promotional interest under this HISA Offer (no matter how many HISAs you open). For joint HISAs, the HISA may be eligible to earn promotional interest if the primary accountholder is a New Simplii Client and meets all of the terms and conditions set out in these Terms.
3. How Interest is Calculated and Paid
The special annual interest rate of 6.00% is a combination of the regular annual interest rate set by Simplii Financial payable on a HISA balance (“Regular Interest”), plus the promotional annual interest rate (“Promotional Interest”).
Interest on an Eligible HISA is calculated as follows:
• Regular Interest is calculated at the current rate on each day’s full closing balance.
• Promotional Interest is calculated on each day's full closing balance up to a balance limit of $1,000,000 during the Promotional Rate Period.
Regular Interest and Promotional Interest are calculated daily and paid monthly. Promotional Interest will only be paid if the Eligible HISA is active and in good standing at the time of payment. If it is not, payment of Promotional Interest will be forfeited for that month.
Regular and Promotional Interest rates may change at any time without prior notice. Check out our current rates. Any change to the Regular Interest rate (or the applicable interest rate tier) will result in a corresponding change to the Promotional Interest rate so that the special annual interest rate will remain constant for the Promotional Rate Period.
At the end of the Promotional Rate Period, all balances will earn interest only at the Regular Interest rate.
Additional terms, conditions, and limitations apply to the opening of and making deposits into Eligible HISAs. Individuals must meet the criteria set by Simplii Financial to open or hold an Eligible HISA to qualify for the HISA Offer. Ask for details.
The HISA Offer is non-transferable and cannot be combined with any other promotional savings offers unless otherwise indicated. Promotional Interest cannot be substituted or transferred to a third party. Simplii Financial reserves the right to cancel or change the terms of the HISA Offer at any time, for any reason, without notice and revoke the HISA Offer for any customer who appears to be manipulating or abusing the HISA Offer, or is engaged in any suspicious/fraudulent activity. The terms and conditions of the Simplii Financial Products and Services Agreement continue to apply to all Eligible HISAs.
