no point complaining already.

those of us who were holding on should probably exit now.

maybe keep 100 to rebuild counter

Those with more than $20k upto $80k should consider Bank of China Super saver. Open account online. Vanilla and no need to play musical chairs.

the only problem is need to unlink paynow from my primary bank to BOC..
Or else the interest rate is quite good for these days.

my impression of the $15 service fee will be charged start of the month. Has anyone been deducted service fee when you deposit any cash in? My acct was zero for the longest and was testing if my acct is not dormant and whether fee will be charged by depositing 1c. Next day, the 1c was deducted and description is service fee.

You can
1) Go in person to bank to terminate account or

2) if u have internet banking, BT out all your $ then call up their customer service and terminate the account.

quite straightforward.

If you have somewhere better to park your $$s, then why wait for 1/12. Just make sure you had your account open for 6mos as per customer service that i talked to. Else it will incur some penalties. Closed mine recently and moved it to SCB eSaver as i got an invitation for 0.6 interest. Better than what im getting now in citi maxi gain. I just transferred everything to SCB and called up citi cust. svc to close it. done..

oh wow...urm..it's been 3-4 years ago since I left this account.

I think if you are hopping to another higher interest bank or account, just leave asap?

Have most of you terminated this account? Can the account be closed online?

From what I recall, I either messaged via internet banking or called to close it. Didn't have to go to a branch.

I emptied the account and used secured email to request to close. They say will close. Now 2 years already I still see the account when I login to check my credit card transactions.

I send reminder 2 times still no action. Give up. As long as they don't charge me fall below fee, I just leave it.

just take note that on surface it doesn't charge cos it don't go into neg bal. once u top any amount in SGD, it will deduct.

i tried with a 1c in SGD, and next day it just auto deduct for the fall below fees. i'm only keeping it to receive foreign currencies from other countries citi account otherwise i would have closed it in total.
