You need to open your Tangerine account with a MINIMUM OF %100 DOLLARS to get your free $50.00. That's all!
The sign-up process only takes a few minutes, but it will take 5 – 7 days for your account with Tangerine to be fully active.
This is all you need to set it up.
- Your social insurance number.
- Your street address, phone number, and email
- A cheque from your current bank account.
- A pen.
- Your smart phone.
Open up the TANGERINE homepage and click on the SIGN UP link (top right hand side).
Step 2: Pick your account type
You can spend some time browsing the different account types if you want, a generic chequing account is a good choice. Once you’re all set up you can find the ones you like and open a few more accounts. Once you select an account lick on the “enroll now” button.
Step 3: Fill out the form
After telling them that you’re not a Client you'll be sent to the standard form page where you will fill out (i) your name, (ii) social insurance number, (iii) date of birth, (iv) phone number, (v) mailing address, (vi) email address, (vii) PIN, and a few more details (for legal purposes): industry you work in, occupation and your Orange Key/Code.
IF YOU WANT YOUR FREE 50 DOLLARS: THIS IS THE MOMENT TO PUNCH IN YOUR ORANGE KEY/CODE
Step 4: Prove you are who you say you are
You have a choice. There are a few options.
You can either mail the cheque to Tangerine, or you can use the Tangerine smart phone app, take a picture of it and send it. The app works with most of the major phones: Android, Windows, and its fruit friend Apple, and Blackberry. It will walk you through the process of taking the picture. It’s super easy.
IF YOU SEND A CHEQUE BY MAIL: Make sure you include your client number in the memo section, or they won’t know what your cheque is for.
Benefit of sending a cheque :
With your cheque you’re not only proving your identity, you’re linking your current bank account with your new TANGERINE account - creating a bridge between the two of them, so you can transfer money back and forth with ease.
When you’ve finally decided you want to move all your banking over to your new account… it’ll be a simple push of a button.
Go to a Tangerine bank (with valid ID) and give them your cheque.
Step 5: Wait for ApprovalIf you sent in a cheque: It shouldn’t take longer than 5 – 7 business days for the fine people at Tangerine to verify your identity.
After that you’ll be good to go!
If you have any questions, let me know.
