How to Move Your Money

Moving your money is a quick and easy process. You can move your money online, or by calling 1-866-681-2837.

For your savings account:

  • Once you've made your initial deposit, a link to the account that you sent your cheque from will be created. You can then move your money between these accounts in a couple of ways:
    • Move your money online: log-in to online banking and transfer funds in and out of your account by clicking on the 'Move My Money' tab.
    • Move your money over the telephone by calling 1-866-681-2837. You can transfer your funds via automated telephone service, or, ask a friendly Canadian Tire Representative to manage this task for you.

You can always set up an automatic deposit to your account so that the money keeps piling up... automatically. You can do this online.

Want to move money to and from one of your other accounts? Just send in a cheque from that account and a link will be set up automatically.

For your GIC:

  1. If you already have a Canadian Tire High Interest Savings® account, you can transfer funds directly from that account to set up your GIC. Or, transfer funds from another account that is already linked to your savings account.
  2. If you don't already have a Canadian Tire High Interest Savings® account, simply mail in a cheque and your GIC will be created - it's that easy!
