Just wanted to spread the word on a great banking offer if you live on Vancouver Island...
Island Savings is offering a Simply Free Account that is free to open, has no fees, and they will pay you $50 to open one. If you normally pay an average of $12/month in service charges/fees, this offer equals a savings of $194 in just the first year. We use one. We also use a business account there and save approximately $40/month on that account, compared with what we were paying with a big bank. That is another $480/year in savings!
But that is not the main reason we bank there...
When you walk in, there are 2 or 3 tellers waiting to greet you by name and provide personal service. I appreciate that because it is nice to be able to pick up the phone and talk to a real person whose got your back if you find yourself in a jam while travelling, growing your business, etc.
They also provide a full suite of insurance products, including travel, home, business liability, disability, life, critical illness and more.
And they approved us for a mortgage in year one of a new start up business - something our big banks wouldn't do after 5 years in business!
I honestly feel like the service we get from our credit union is an asset to our business and makes our life better.
