Already have an ATB chequing account? Get $50 for every friend you successfully refer!*

  1. Get your friend to open a new ATB personal chequing account by December 31, 2015. They can choose from almost any of our accounts including our best-in-class Unlimited Account, our all-inclusive ATB Advantage Account, and even our FREE student account. To see all our account options Click here
  2. Your friend will need to add a direct deposit to the new account. The first deposit must occur within two months of opening the account. 
  3. Get $50!
  4. And repeat. Every friend you successfully refer means another $50 for you!



  • If you’re an existing ATB personal chequing account holder (and 18 years of age or older), get $50 for every successful friend referral. The friend you refer also needs to be 18 years or older.
  • A referral is considered successful if your friend opens a new personal chequing account between June 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015 AND sets up recurring direct income deposit (payroll, pension or disability) with the first deposit into their new account occurring within two months of the account being opened.
  • Your friend can choose from almost any of our account options including our best-in-class Unlimited or ATB Advantage Accounts to our free specialty accounts for students or adults age 59 and over. The only accounts that don’t qualify are the Pay As You Go, HELOC and US Chequing accounts.
  • Sorry, if your friend has or has had any ATB personal chequing account (including Pay As You Go, HELOC and US Chequing Account) as of December 31, 2013, they're not eligible for this offer.
  • You need to make sure your friend tells us they were referred by you when they open their new ATB account.
  • Your $50 will be deposited into your account in the fourth month after the month your friend opened their new account.

Huh? Translation please: If your friend opens a qualifying account in June we need to see their first recurring direct income deposit in their new account by no later than August 31 for you to qualify for the $50 referral bonus—which would be deposited into your account in October.

A few more notes

There’s one $50 referral bonus per eligible account opened meaning if you refer two people and they open one eligible joint account, only on referral bonus is awarded. The eligible account must be open and in good standing when the cash bonus is to be deposited into the account. Unfortunately, ATB team members and individuals who are joint on an account with an ATB team member, ATB agents and employees of ATB agents are not eligible to participate in these promotional offers. These offers can’t be combined with any other promotional offer. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to suspend, disqualify, limit or revoke these promotional offers to any person or account holder we find or believe to be manipulating or otherwise abusing the process, fairness, integrity or operation of the promotional offers.
