Banking advice for Canadians

– Best USD credit card is at RBC Bank. As far as I know it’s the only USD card with reward points.
– Best checking account is at HSBC. Nothing beats doing wire transfers from your own computer for $10-$20 a pop.
– Best currency exchange is at TD Canada Trust. You can do it online, you get your money within 30 minutes and the rates are the best I’ve seen across a number of banks and private exchanges. Tell the idiots at the branch you want to use for currency exchange. They’ll have no idea what it is but you’ll have to push them and ask them to submit a referral.

If you found something better let me know.

No problem. Oh and don’t forget to look into SR&ED and OIDMTC goverment credits if you have any online properties.
