Full disclosure: I work part-time for Citizens Bank of Canada as I build up my coaching business (hello dental benefits, extended health, pension!). But I work for them ONLY because I’m nearly as passionate about Citizens Bank as I am about Your Money by Design. It’s a virtual bank based in Vancouver that is sincerely trying to do banking differently – ethics, member-driven, csr and on top of that, great rates.
Right now, if you open a savings account and drop $500 in it – and the interest rate is 3.8% right now – they give you $30 and me $30 as long as the money stays there at least 6 months. It’s a great way to start up a nest egg, or emergency fund, or holiday fund…. saving is always good! Open your Savings account, let them know I referred you and you get $30, and I’ll donate mine to the Downtown Eastside Music Academy (a music program for kids in tough financial circumstances).
And now for something completely different: these Opus picture frames, mint condition, for $15 each. Retail for $70. Three frames available – buy them all for $30. Thanks, 10onWednesday!
