Managing your Accounts: Some Tips and Tricks

Get your money to us

Deposit at an ATM. Your interest starts growing immediately when you make virtually instant deposits at an ACCULink credit union ATM. You can use the ding free ATM Locator app to find a surcharge-free ATM near you. (Most, but not all Canadian credit unions are on the ACCULink network, so make sure you look for the ACCULink logo!)

Regular automatic transfers. Take the chore out of depositing money by setting up a regularly scheduled transfer from another Canadian financial institution. You can also arrange for a one-time transfer. If you want to put the funds directly into an RRSP, RRIF or TFSA, you can set up regular contributions.

About the Mail. Your money can't earn interest when it's in the mail, so this is your least efficient deposit option. But, if you opt to use the mail, remember to complete your deposit form in full and don't send cash - cheques only please.

Make your money work for you

Use your High-Interest Savings Account. An Outlook High-Interest Savings Account helps you build toward even greater savings. Once you have $1,000 in your savings account, you can transfer your money into a Cashable GIC. Interest from your GIC is deposited back into your savings account, or compounded in your GIC - whichever you choose.

Your money's guaranteed. All deposits held at Assiniboine Credit Union, Outlook Financial's parent company, are 100% guaranteed by the Deposit Guarantee Corporation of Manitoba. Invest in confidence, knowing your funds are secure.

We'll CU@HOME. Not signed up for Online Banking yet? What are you waiting for? It's so fast and convenient that once you try it, you'll wonder how you ever did without it.

Then log on anytime for real-time balances, e-statements, bill payments, transaction records, cheque images and more!
