I was just sent this e-mail about an offer from a financial institution called Ally. From what I read, they are offering TFSA account holders with other banks up to $50 to switch to them in order for you to recoup any transferring fees that your bank may charge for the switch.

I have personally never tried this company myself. However, I figured there are probably a lot of people that are looking for options and this may be one of them.
I’m not sure if someone in-the-know wants to clarify this too, but to my understanding the $50 is to simply recoup any transferring fees as opposed to simply getting a free $50 for transferring the account.
Apparently the offer ends at the end of this month:
