Thanks maumu.

Hi all,

I applied for CIMB Why Wait Fixed Deposit-i. I receive my FD interest (in FASTSAVER-i account), any issue to the FD if i FAST the interest to another bank account?

Thanks in advance.

you can continue to use account ABC. the FD account is a different one. not related.

Hi all,

I have an existing CIMB account (e.g. ABC) - active account that i use now and then.

I like to apply CIMB Why Wait Fixed Deposit-i Promotion. Can i still use account ABC actively after the FD application? Or i cannot use account ABC unless this FD matures 12 months later? :s22: *confused*

Thanks in advance.

via another bank (esaver 1 --> bank X --> bank Y --> esaver 2). saves the trouble of being questioned that i'm just putting back from the same bank.

Wouldn't this be considered as funds that are withdrawn and re-deposited? (if both esaver accounts are under the same name)

SC's definition of fresh funds:
"fresh funds" are funds that do not originate from any existing account with the Bank or funds that are not withdrawn and re-deposited within 30 days of the Promotion Period

withdrawn and re-deposited to the same account.

at least that is how those with 2 esaver accounts have been using this strategy to 'refresh' the funds.

aiya, why care so much about the terms, if it works means it works now, and take advantage of it while it still works this way. if u think it doesnt count as fresh funds, pls dont go n complain to the bank...sometimes they just close one eye.

I see. In that case, good thing SC doesn't look at both accounts as one.

I am just not sure because I have not tried it myself but good that someone who tried confirmed this.

Last I checked:

Sc e saver 1 pax can have max 3 accounts, 1 single 2 joint name for me

UOB HY, as many as you want. I have 4 HY accounts

esaver is easier because we can have 2 esaver accounts to do that rotation. can we have 2 uob hy accounts to do that? don't think so right.

Did Standard Chartered call you and ask u to explain why you always transfer in and out from another bank account ?

wow, u must be high earner. is it each account must have $35k minimum? or combined $35k?

nope, just 'precautionary'... in case they ask lah. so far never ask. anyway... have stopped with this strategy since maybank offers similar rates (end up is just transferring between maybank/SC every 2 - 3 mths). the 2 banks going tit-for-tat.

Maybank is damn useless these days .... got money to donate to the President charity show for $0.5 million .... but very stingy to pay depositors good rates. Always must play some kind of tricks here and there one..

For the CIMB online placement 1.84% promotion,
What happens at maturity? Can auto credit to FastSaver account or must go down to their bank?

choose to credit back to fastsaver. the FD account will then become $0.
