Meridian Business Advantage Plus Savings Account Interest Rate Offer

Terms & Conditions

General Terms

1.    Meridian Credit Union (“Meridian”) is offering a BAP bonus interest rate offer of 1.30% (the "Offer") for a limited time only available to Business Members who;

  1.     do not currently hold and have not previously held a Business Advantage Plus Savings Account within the previous 6 months (the “Eligible Account”); and 
  2.     open an Eligible Account within the Offer period of August 2, 2022, to October 7, 2022. 

2.    The Offer will apply to deposits made into the Eligible Account for 243 days (approximately 8 months) beginning on the date the Eligible Account is opened (the "Promotion Period") to a maximum Eligible Account balance of $2,000,000 per Member.  

3.    Only one Eligible Account is allowed per Member.  Once the Member’s Eligible Account qualifies for the Bonus Interest, subsequent BAP accounts opened by the Member during the Promotion Period will not earn the Bonus Interest rate.

Members receive Bonus Interest on deposits to the Eligible Account during the Promotion Period.  Bonus Interest will be deposited to the Eligible Account on the 1st business day of the following month.  For example, Bonus interest earned during the month of July will be posted to the Eligible Account on the first business day of August.  Subject to the limits and qualifications outlined in these Terms and Conditions, Posted Rate and Bonus Interest is calculated on the closing daily balance and is paid monthly on deposits during the Promotion Period to the Eligible Account. Any change to the Posted Rate will result in a corresponding change to the Offer Rate. Bonus Interest and/or Posted Rates are annualized rates and, notwithstanding anything in this section, Meridian may change the Bonus Interest and/or Posted Rates at any time without prior notice.

5.    The Bonus Interest rate will end at the end of the 243 day Promotion Period. For example, if a Member opens an Eligible Account on August 2, 2022, the Bonus interest rate will be paid only until April 2, 2023 on the Eligible Account.

6.    After the 243 days (Promotion Period ends, all balances will earn interest at the Posted Rate payable on the Eligible Account.

7.    Interest is calculated daily and paid monthly for both the Posted Rate interest payments and the Bonus Interest payments.
