BEA 1.85%
Family went down today.
If want to credit principal and interest to other bank account upon maturity, have $20 fee.

Imo, troublesome to have to head to their only branch in town.
The fee for credit to other banks better covered if placement is higher.

Just received this in the mail
: Standard Chartered eSaver Bonus interest earning period from 1 Apr 2019 to 31 March 2020

Fine print on sc.com/sg/ext-apr19a

In brief: Longer-term tenure.
Total interest = Prevailing Interest Rate + Bonus Interest Rate (1.55%)
If there is a promotion (the one that we see updated every 2-3 months) that offers a higher Bonus Interest Rate, the higher rate will apply for that duration.

E.g. for April & May 2019, Bonus Interest rate is 1.75% since there is a current promotion that is higher than the quoted 1.55%.
Depending on Deposit Balance Tier, Total Interest could range from 1.85% to 2.0%

The catch: Top up account with fresh funds and maintain minimum account balance of 100k as of 31 May 2019.

IMO this is not too bad if bros here don't want to play merry-go-round with the other banks every 2-3 months. But need minimum balance of 100k.

uh, so for those of us who recently just top up (to 200k) for the recent $500 credit promotion (e.g. by placing 100k into an eSaver account), do we automatically qualify since the promotion period is from 1 April to 31 May?

assuming we receive the mailer

nope bro, I didn't receive that one-year extension because I didn't join the promotion last year...

so, hoping to hop on this promotion this time round.

but maybank iSavvy has outwitted eSaver everytime (for amounts less than 200k) so I've been switching back and forth eSaver and iSavvy every 2 months or so.

seems like this promotion does not have any other benefits, like cash credits. so, maybe not worth to park beyond July (when the 3-mth requirement for $500 credit ends).

your tots?
