The following terms and conditions explain in detail how you can earn a special annual interest rate on a new Simplii Financial™ High Interest Savings Account (“HISA”) if you are a New Simplii Client (the “HISA Offer”).
1. Offer Period
This HISA Offer begins on February 1, 2023 and ends on April 30, 2023 (the “Offer Period”).
To be eligible for this HISA Offer, you must have no prior relationship with Simplii Financial before the beginning of the Offer Period (a “New Simplii Client”). For joint HISAs, the HISA may be eligible to earn promotional interest if the primary accountholder is a New Simplii Client.
If you are a New Simplii Client and you open a HISA during the Offer Period as the primary accountholder, you may be eligible to earn promotional interest from the date your HISA is opened until April 30, 2023 (subject to certain restrictions as outlined in Section 4 below) (“Eligible HISA”). Eligible HISAs are automatically enrolled in the HISA Offer. New Simplii Clients may open more than one Eligible HISA during the Offer Period.
3. How Interest is Calculated and Paid
The special annual interest rate of 5.25% 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”) that is calculated at the end of the Offer Period on the New Balance (as defined below).
Regular Interest is calculated daily at the current rate on each day’s full closing balance and paid monthly. Promotional Interest is calculated at the Promotional Interest rate on the average daily closing balance of each of the New Simplii Client’s Eligible HISAs, and aggregated across all such Eligible HISAs, from the date the HISA is opened to the end of the Offer Period (the “New Balance”). Promotional Interest will only apply on up to an aggregate maximum balance of $500,000. Promotional Interest will be paid in May 2023 into a single Eligible HISA held by the primary accountholder, which account must be active and in good standing at the time of payment.
Regular Interest rates and Promotional Interest rates quoted are annual. 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 will result in a corresponding change to the Promotional Interest rate so that the overall combined annual interest rate of 5.25% will remain for the Offer Period.
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.
