Here are some answers to our most popular questions:

No, in order to earn interest at the annual rate of 1.80% until August 31, 2021, you must choose a 360-day Premium Period and have the Ultimate Package account. If you choose another Premium Period (90-day, 180-day, or 270-day), you will still earn a Bonus Interest Rate of 1.20% until August 31, 2021 but you will earn a Total Annual Interest Rate lower than 1.80% depending on which Premium Period and banking package (Preferred or Ultimate) you have. Visit the Current Rate Page for more information on Premium Period interest rates and Package Account interest rate boosts. All rates are subject to change and annual interest rates. 

No, the primary or sole owner of a MomentumPLUS Savings Account can only earn Bonus Interest until August 31, 2021 when the Bonus Interest rate expires.

For example, you can earn interest at the annual rate of 1.80% until August 31, 2021 with a combination of:

  • Regular Interest Rate of 0.05%
  • Ultimate Interest Rate Boost of 0.10%
  • 360-day Premium Interest Rate of 0.45%
  • Bonus Interest Rate of 1.20% (until August 31, 2021)

After August 31, 2021, the Bonus Interest Rate of 1.20% will no longer apply and using the above example, you will continue to earn the Regular Interest Rate, Ultimate Interest Rate Boost, and 360-day Premium Interest Rate for the duration of the 360-day Premium Period in accordance with the terms and conditions found in our Day-to-Day Banking Companion Booklet. Refer to Current Rate Page for current interest rates, which are subject to change.

First, you earn a Regular Interest rate, which is applied to your daily closing balance and is paid monthly.

Second, you can earn a Premium Interest rate when you open a Premium Period(s), each of which can have a length of 90, 180, 270 or 360 days. For each Premium Period, Premium Interest is calculated by applying the Premium Interest rate to each deposit, and any paid Regular Interest, each day until the end of the Premium Period. Premium Interest is only paid at the end of the Premium Period, and only if no debit transactions were made within the Premium Period.

Yes, you can withdraw your money any time. If you conduct a debit transaction before a Premium Period end-date, you’ll still earn Regular Interest and will lose any accrued Premium Interest.

A new Premium Period of the same duration will automatically re-start the same day with your remaining balance. If you have more than one Premium Period, only the Premium Period you withdraw from will be affected.

The Premium Interest rate for deposit is based on the:

  1. Length of the Premium Period; or
  2. Length of time a deposit is made after the Premium Period begins, and is based on the number of days remaining in the Premium Period.

The following table explains the rate you receive based on when you make an additional deposit.

Days before Premium end-date
Premium Interest Rate
90 days or less
90-day Premium Interest Rate
More than 90 but less than 180 days
180-day Premium Interest Rate
More than 180 but less than 270 days
270-day Premium Interest Rate
More than 270 days
360-day Premium Interest Rate
