1) This is the second time ZenBanx is doing this – first was for Canada Day. This time around, will be on August 3rd, and it’s been hinted that there will be at least a third time.
2) You can transfer a maximum of $250 CAD for $250 USD on par.
3) You will only receive ~$190 USD immediately. Pending market rate.
4) Within a few days, ZenBanx will top off the difference, giving you now a total of $250 USD.
Post Promotion – It’s up to you how you want to spend your money! There’s a few options.
- Keep it in your ZenBanx account in USD and earn a bit of interest rate.
- Exchange your $250 USD back to CAD at ZenBanx’s market rate. This would be approximately $32X.XX CAD give or take.
- Either keep it in your ZenBanx account or transfer it back to your linked external account – free of charge.
- An ATM will be mailed out to you. Typically it takes 1-2 weeks.
- You can use your ATM card in the United States. Details here on fees here:
- Use it at specific US retailers listed here: as a debit card. No fee.
- Withdraw USD at ATMS in the United States for a fee of $3.
- At this time, you can only link your ZenBanx with CAD deposit accounts. So unfortunately you will not be able to transfer the whole $250 USD balance to your bank’s USD account.
- Sign-up for a free Zenbanx account here.
- Complete the application form including your SIN and a ID (Ie. drivers license or passport).
- Add Linked Account (1 of 2 ways):

To clarify, sign up through our link on or before August 3, 2015 and deposit $250 into your account. On August 3-17, transfer $250 CAD to USD and you will receive the converted USD at their current exchange rate, and then also receive a promotional credit to get your balance up to $250 USD, effectively, getting the conversion at Par. Refer friends and family and both will get $10 each, and if you can refer 5 or more people, get another $100 bonus for a total bonus of $150 or more!
