Do you love waiting in line or paying money for things you can get for free? Well if you don’t then maybe it’s time for you to switch your bank. You may not realize it, but your monthly banking fees can really add up at the end of the year. Tangerine has an offer that just may help you save time and money.


Did you know that Canadians spend, on average, approximately $200 per year in banking fees?  Its true, most other banks charge you for having an account.  Take a look at the features that you get with Tangerine’s No-Fee Chequing Account.


In fact, it is a lot faster to switch your bank than you think.  Tangerine has something called the Switch Assistant that lets you move your pay, bills and pre-authorized payments faster than you can pick a movie to watch.  The Tangerine Switch Assistant is a tool that automatically transfer all of your account activities, like payroll direct deposits, pre-authorized payments and bill payees, etc. The great part is that you get updates that let you know how the transfer is going. And you can transfer it all in about 15 minutes, which is a lot faster than doing it anywhere else.. There is even something called Switch Protection that will make sure that you don’t miss any payments during the transfer. And remember, when you switch you get a $100 bonus.

Here is a video that talks more about the campaign.
