The no-fee part is good, yes. But I personally disliked that if there was any activity on my account it took a day to show who the merchant was (don't know if this has changed). I also found it inconvenient to only be able to go to a PC Financial pavalon to get transactions that were actually free (most places charge $1.25 - $1.50)... Of course, that was before they let you go to CIBC, too (or before I knew about it LOL).

I am with TD now. I like their products and love their service. Plus, if a problem comes up, I can actually go to a branch to get something done (unlike TD).

I LOVE their service where you can view images of your cashed cheques online (for free, in some cases). Comes in very handy. Example: a few weeks ago, I wrote a cheque for $24.00 and they debited it from my account as $29.00 Luckily, it was quite easy for them to load up the image of the cheque and realize their error! Problem solved in 5 minutes. If I had to wait for the cancelled cheque to be returned to me, it would take much longer to get my $5 back (LOL Yah, I know.... It's only $5 -- but it's still money!)

AFAIK, TD is the only bank that lets you view cheque images online.

Nope.... It's a Canadian thing. They had a promo this summer where if you applied for a certain Visa, and were approved, they'd give you an iPod Nano. The Shuffle was free if you switched your chequing account. Apparently, if you switched & were approved for the Visa, they'd give you both a Shuffle & Nano...... BUT my friend applied and got two Nanos.

He got a Nano because he was approved for the Visa. He SHOULD have got a Shuffle for the chequing account he opened up, but they screwed up and sent him a 2nd Nano. I would assume it'll be back next year..... They ran the exact same Shuffle thing last year.

Yeah, that was a gold card. So... if you can be approved for that...

Toronto Dominion has dominion over Toronto. Their student benefits are good and they actually have good rates for a bank with good service. Not to mention good PR.
