Re: Thank you Postfinance!

Also received the card yesterday. I'm just in the process of transferring all my accounts from UBS to PostFinance, and am very happy to be doing so.

As an aside, I wish that everyone spoke as slow as this guy did, I would not have struggled with understanding dialect/the Swiss German accent so much at first had they had his pace and clarity!
I wish every swiss-german could have subtitles in front of them everytime they speak

that's the law. You can claim them back by filing a tax form.
It's a gift. can't be taxed.

Gifts can be taxed.
A couple of friends married in Italy and brought with them all their wedding gifts. The customs officer did not show any understanding that it was wedding gifts; they had to pay VAT on it.

Re: Thank you Postfinance!

I was wondering why they would go to the trouble to send you card only to tell you they would credit CHF 2 to your account. A waste of postage....

I didn't realize that it was in fact CHF 20. Hmmm not used to counting in Rappen :-)

Yes it is a problem when you only have 10 fingers to count on

Received today a nice card from Postfinance. To thank the loyal customer and to share the success of 2010 business they will credit the E-deposito/deposito accounts with 2010 centimes (i.e 20CHF10) in March.

That's nice marketing! Makes them so different from the "bonus" banks.
Hi!
I also had the gift. And it nicely attracted my attention.
Unfortunately, I now realized that it attracted my attention away from the fact that they lowered the interest rate in 1st January 2011...:

http://www.postfinance.ch/en/about/m...ess101203.html
PostFinance is lowering the interest rate on e-Deposito accounts in Swiss francs by 0.25% as of 1 January 2011. As of this date it will pay 1% on electronically managed Deposito accounts for private customers and 0.75% for business customer accounts....

So they "give" 20chf but "take" 0.25%...

EDIT:
Maybe they informed customer before (by PDF on your account), I probably missed it
