Thank you Postfinance!

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.

Re: Thank you Postfinance!

Any idea if they give it by account or by members? Because we received three of those letters...

So I was hoping maybe we will get it three times!

Re: Thank you Postfinance!

i think it is by account not member.....we shall find out in march:-)

we also have multiple accounts so are i'm hoping for multiple payout!
cheeky i know, but then, you get so little back for all the pain of saving.

yes it really is painful for us! we dont save that much but its the principle...i was brought up to save, save, save and all i seem to do in switzerland is spend, spend, spend. ahhhh - all i can say is that in our family at least we all have our health :-)))

enjoy the freebie!

Re: Thank you Postfinance!

Interesting thing is I have a Euro account and get 2010 euro cents and my wife has a CHF account and gets 2010 rappen. For once I'm winning with the Euro :-)

Re: Thank you Postfinance!

I wish they would just inform us by statement or electronically. I travel quite a lot so my post box fills up very quickly, it's usually either tax or junk!.

Sorry but I find unnecessary posted communications a waste of time, I have asked for no statements by post so they just send advertising! At least I did not have to wait at the post office to collect the choclates they sent last year.

Re: Thank you Postfinance!

I got same square card in perfectly square envelope. I guess now we are all square with Postfinance (after being screwed with 35% tax on interest). Next time they can send me some more... nuts... so that I can screw them!

that's the law. You can claim them back by filing a tax form.

Me too, and my wife.

Funny, my wife thought it was advertising so did not read it - I am anal & have to read everything

Re: Thank you Postfinance!

Everyone with a Deposito or e-Deposito account gets the 2010 rappen, regardless of account size.

More info on the website, including a video

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 did that once. The post indeed kept all my mail, but lost it! That included several bills, health insurance card etc. Many phone calls, visits to the post office, and they could not find anything.

It was a bit of a headache to sort out all the missing bills but finally all went smooth.

They delivered our missing post two months later .

Now I just ask the neighbors to collect our mail. Much more reliable :-)
