RBC's Laptop Promotion
Its that time of year again where the major banks start to beg for your business. The past couple years, TD has offered an Ipod for you to switch over your banking. CIBC has offered $100. Last year RBC offered a $150 gift card if you switch your banking over to them.
This year RBC is offering the most valuable promotion to date. They are offering a free laptop to those who switch ($300 value). But you will have to do a bit of leg work to get the laptop.
In order to qualify you must:
-Open a new RBC Signature No Limit bank account or RBC Vip bank account.
-Use CustomSwitch to transfer your account balance and preauthorized payments from another Canadian financial institution
-Transfer at least 2 preauthorized payments from your account
-Transfer automated payroll direct deposit
-Select paperless statements
-Pay at least 1 bill through online banking

It sounds like alot, but for many it just means "do your day to day banking with us". As I recently just moved my mortgage over to RBC I was going to do all but the EasySwitch anyway.
In a couple months I will have the new laptop, I will report back then on how it is. Based on the specs it appears to be a bare bones laptop suitable for surfing and minimal application use. Does anybody have any experience with the Asus line of laptops?
