15k is total relationship balance, not per account

Can i clarify this. My understanding is min balance of 15k to grow counter but it will be subjected to base rate of 0.05%. to enjoy sibor rate, need min 70k deposit.

So can i say that, at counter 0 , it doesnt make sure to deposit 70k to get the 1.x% sibor rate ? Since there are easily savings acc earning >1.8%

Min $15k to avoid fall below fee. No min for counter buildup so long lowest end of day balance in the month is higher than that of previous month. 0% base interest if dun have min $70k balance. Need to meet some requirement to get 1.8% in other banks.

1) False. She interpret wrongly.
To earn base interest : minimum S$70,000 daily end of day balance
To get counter increase : if the lowest balance in that month is equal to or greater than the lowest balance in the preceding month.

So you don't need 70k for the counter to increase. But you will not get the base interest if your account does not have daily end of day balance of 70k.

Base Interest
"Interest at the Base Interest Rate will accrue daily, if you maintain at least S$70,000 in your MaxiGain account, based on the daily end of day balance and will be paid on the last day of the month."

So if betweeen 1st Jan - 10 Jan you don't have 70k in your maxigain account, you will not earn the base interest (only peanuts @ 0.05% for 10 days).
If between 11 Jan - 31 Jan you top-up your account balance to 70k, you will earn that base interest (70% of SIBOR for 21 days).

Bonus Interest
"The Bonus Interest Rate on the other hand has no requirement of a minimum balance . Bonus interest will accrue in a month at the relevant Bonus Interest Rate for so long as the Counter for that month is higher than zero."

If you do not qualify for the base interest, you may still qualify for the bonus interest (cap at 1.2%) as long as your lowest account balance in the month does not fall below the lowest balance in preceding month.

However, make sure your total AUM with Citibank is >= 15k, else will incur service charge (being AUM balance fall-below fee).


2) According to Localborn's RM, top-up to maxigain will be qualified and revised TNC will be notified to all customers via email.


3) Quoted from TNC
[“Top Up” refers to a net inflow of funds from outside Citi into all of a Customer’s primary accounts, including Citi checking and savings accounts, foreign currency time deposits, investments and life insurances distributed by Citi on an advised basis.

Funds credited into cash management account and SGD time deposit account where such time deposit has an interest rate of one (1) per cent or higher will not count
towards a “Top Up”.]

Maxigain account is a current/savings account.
The TNC did not explicitly states that it exclude Maxigain account from the top-up promotion.

But you can wait for your PB/RM confirmation
Yes. If your 70k can earn >1.25% interest at other bank, put there.

Just deposit 15k into your newly opened maxigain account, and let the counter grows till after 6 counter, then decide if you would like to top-up till 70k (check if any new funds top-up promotion is ongoing).

does this CNY top-up promo applies to those with more than $70K but less than $150K? i never receive any notification from Citi and I dont even know who's my PB.
Top-up promotion applies to amount existing above $70k too.

I never received any notification from Citibank likewise, saw this thread then know that there was ongoing CNY top-up promotion.

Your RM contact can be found on the right side of your bank statement, where your address is stated.

I logged a ticket via Citi Phone regarding the Top Up Promotion and today i received a Callback from a Personal Banker.

After she checked internally with the deposit team, she mentioned that my 31 Dec 2018 is eligible for the Jan 2019 Top Up Promotion and I will need to sign a Form for the Promotion.
