I got my free iPod Nano from TD Bank Today!

I got my free iPod Nano from TD Canada Trust bank today 🙂 🙂

It was delivered via Canada Post’s Xpresspost but I don’t think they attempted delivering it to my house. I got a notice in the mail and went to pick it up from the nearest Post Canada office (which in my case was in Shoppers Drug Mart). The package was smaller than I expected and it had a sealed white iPod Nano as well as a small thank you letter from TD bank. Photos of the packaging below.

Since I already bought an iPod Video last year I’m not sure of what to do with the iPod Nano. Any suggestions?

Did you get your iPod from TD yet? Please let us know when you do 🙂

    If you need a suggestion as to what to do with it, you could give it to me.


  2. David says:

    Yeah, I’d take it too… If you dont have any use for it…lol.

  3. Bobo says:

    I’m going in to get mine on the first day of the new month.. Wheee..

    I have to switch anyway…

    ps. How long was shipping? Or a write up about any unexpected things that came up?

  4. Bobo says:

    I take it that it was white, but did it have a td logo on it?

  5. Boo Radley says:

    Mithel & David thanks for your suggestions 🙂 your idea is very unhelpful helpful 😉 Actually… I’ll probably have some sort of contest by the end of this month as I’ve mentioned before but it’ll be for something much much less expensive like a $10 gift card or something similar in value.

    Bobo, surprisingly shipping took just over a week! My account doesn’t even have a direct deposit yet! TD provided great service and made sure it satisfied its customers. I’m very impressed.

    The hardest part was getting approved for a golden credit card… but once that’s done nothing else can stop you from getting that Nano 😉 oh, and in the worst case if you don’t get approved for a golden credit card you can sTill get an iPod shuffle very easily.

    Golden Credit Card? Sounds almost mystical. 😛
    Grrr…lucky you…. I’m still trying to get my dad to go for this promo 🙁

    If not for TD Bank nearly ruining my credit due to their error way back when I was 17, I’d be all over this. But 25 years later, I still refuse to give them my business. They have to clean up their record keeping before I’ll ever risk that again. Same goes for Scotiabank.

  8. Boo Radley says:

    Thanks for pointing this typo nolookingca 🙂 it’s mystical indeed 😉
    nolookingca, I hope your Dad agrees to go for this promo. It’s a very simple process and he’ll have to spend about half an hour at TD (if not less) to complete the whole process. The easy switch will then take him about 2 minutes on the phone!

    Carrie, I hate it when banks or any other company screw up important data… but I’m sure “25 years later” TD bank will have dramatically changed a lot of its strategies, hopefully to the better.
    oh, and thanks for mentioning SmartCanucks on your blog! That’s very nice of you 🙂 You have a wonderful blog too which I’ll be checking frequently.

    Its a good promotion, its too bad other banks aren’t running anything nearly as ‘fun’ this summer. I hate to ruin all the TD love going around, but I’ve accounts at TD, Montral, and Royal over the years and TD give me the worse service of them all. I would rank Montreal first in service, but with ATM and 1-800 # it matters less and and less.

  10. nolookingca says:

    Speaking of ruining people’s credit, HSBC/RadioShack (back before The Source) charged a purchased on a newly applied-for card. (My dad thought it was only a points card, but obviously that was wrong.) Since he was technically a contractor at the time, the card was denied… I’m sure you can guess what happened next. 😉

    P.S. He finally agreed to do it! 😀 Just need to sign a lease on a new apartment and some other stuff this weekend, and then he’ll go for it. (Funds already in PC account, so that’s not a problem) 😀

  11. Bobo says:

    I just got back from TD bank, everything is in place, so after the call from easy switch, has to be two days after your in branch vist the nano will be mailed to me.

    For those going in still, ask for the first month Select Service fee be waved, the 24.95 comes due at the last day of the month, since the month is half over it doesn’t seem fair does it :). Then if you are to use this account, have them order checks. I got 2 boxes -75 per box- without my address, as 150 checks should last me many years. Its 20 bucks a box or free with Select Service account and I needed them anyway.

    Also try to get telephone banking, you have unlimted access with a select service account and it makes it easier to cancel your credit card when you don’t need it anymore.

    Is this thing for real? Its that easy

  13. Thilipan says:

    I would love to have that IPOD nano

  14. Bobo says:

    You need to have a ‘household’ income over over 35,000 a year to apply for the Gold visa to get the nano. If you can’t do that get a shuffle and use it as usb drive and as a music player it has its perks.

  15. alisa says:

    is that true? only people with 35, 000 a year income can be elligible for the visa card? wow..i’m too poor for it then. that really sucks, i was going to go this week to get mine.
    hey, how much did you end up paying in total for your ipod nano, boo radley?

  16. Bobo says:

    You need a household income of 35,000 to get the card. If you don’t have it you can still get the shuffle. Shouldn’t cost you more then 24.95, thats the cost of select servie account, which you should get if you are going to want to order cheques. If you are doing this for the shuffle, then you don’t need to get teh select sergice account and it shouldn’t cost you anything.

  17. […] I’m very excited to announce that SmartCanucks.ca forum is back with some interesting additions. I’m also giving away the iPod Nano I got from TD bank […]

  18. regina says:

    would u sell it to me?

  19. Boo Radley says:

    Thanks for your interest regina

    I’m giving out the iPod as a gift to the first person to earn the sufficient amount of candies on my forum:

    Sorry about that regina

  20. Jeremy says:

    I find it very tacky that TD Canada Trust has to offer iPods to drum up business! TD is a joke but if they wanna give out iPods so that everyone can just leave there bank one they open the account then let that be their problem.

  21. alisa says:

    i have a question…not sure if anyone knows about this but…i went into TD Bank…and was told that because i’m a student, i only qualify for a student credit account..even though my mom and i both add up to 35K a year income…this sounds a bit ridiculous.
    Does anyone know if i was just being seriously jipped? also…do the PAD’s have to be already existing at the other bank, or do i set them up once i transfer that other account to TD Bank, so that they’re set up to go out of my TD Bank account right away…?? I tried to figure this out over the internet, as the customer service reps for TD Bank give me such random, inconsistent answers that i wonder if they’re just making things up for whatever mood they’re in…..but online doesn’t seem to help much either.

    Hi again,

    I haven’t received my free i-pod yet but I did have a good experience applying for one. I already had a TD select-service account so I figured I could qualify somehow. After reading over the rules about a dozen times and not sure how to do it, I simply went into my branch to the help desk and said, Please help me get a free 1 gig i-pod. Knowing I was already a customer, one of the managers looked over my account and figured it out for me.

    I had to:
    1) apply for the Gold Visa which will have no annual fee because I have the Select Service Account. Otherwise the fee is up to $120/year which is crazy if you ask me.
    2) a good side effect was choosing the Gold Visa that offers 1% cash back (paid annually) and free auto service. This will save me $80+ a year that I pay to CAA now. (I won’t actually use the card because I have President’s Choice MasterCard and I like getting the 1% back towards groceries each month instead.) The other option is the Gold Visa that offers travel dollars.
    3) I was required to have a second direct deposit or payment coming out of my account, so the manager set up the Visa to take the miniumum balance automatically on its due date each month. Again, this is fine with me, especially since I won’t be using the card. You just require the setup to meet their i-pod giveaway rules, you don’t have to use it.
    4) I had to transfer over a chequing account from another bank. I had a no-fee one at President’s Choice Financial that I just used for savings so that too was fine. They arrange the switchover. I had to wait for a prearranged phone call to finalize it two days later and they called right on time.

    For those interested in earning some interest: I wasn’t using this chequing account because I started using ING Direct for all my savings about a year ago and much prefer keeping money there to earn short and longer term interest through RSP’s, GIC’s, and the basic savings accounts. None of this matters to TD: I think they just want to annoy the other banks with this i-pod offer by getting people to switch over.

    I am told the other bank can take up to 30 days to close off my account and send the balance over to TD. I also have to wait for my Gold Visa to come through or at least for the application to be processed beyond what the manager did in the bank. I am assured by having the Select Service account that everything is preapproved. When everything is complete, I will get my i-pod. I hope to have it by the end of July if not sooner. I wish I could get one for everyone in family!

    The whole process took about half an hour of my time (so far) which is very fair to me compared to the price of buying the i-pod. I highly recommend simply going in and asking for help at the bank instead of trying to figure it out from afar. They want you’re business and your positive recommendations. I’ve had bizarre bank problems in the past but this time it was all good.

  23. Bobo says:

    Got my shuffle today. Had problems with TD, they want to hold my cheques for 4-5 business days, my other bank doesn’t. other then that, sweet deal..

  24. […] I don’t have a CIBC Visa card and I definitely won’t get one just for Shoppers Drug Mart’s lousy offers. I have an RBC Visa card and I recently got a TD Visa card (when I applied for the iPod offer). Although I hate RBC’s rigid account options I love their service and find it to be much better than that of TD and CIBC. Of course this may be different in your town or city, but here in Kingston that’s my overall impression. […]

    I got my iPod nano in the mail today, but I can’t downlaod music. Who can help me, please?

  26. am says:

    Gone thru the process and saw funds transferred into TD acct today. After calculations, seems like $28 in fees were deducted. My acct was from BMO, which has $8 early closing fee, and $15 BOAT fee; not sure where the missing $5 went. Guess will have to wait to see my BMO statement and call TD to get the fees credited back. Also waiting for my iPod Nano to arrive.
