Read our FAQ

So you’re ready to turn your entire KOHO account into a high interest savings account?
Once you opt into KOHO Save, you’ll start earning 1.2% interest on your entire KOHO balance – your Spendable, RoundUps & Savings Goals. Interest rate is per year, calculated daily and paid out monthly to your Spendable balance.
We want to be clear that the 1.2% interest rate we are offering will not be an introductory rate, or a rate that expires. The same rate will be available to all users, new or existing. For transparency, it’s possible that the interest rate could change if the rates made available by our Service Providers change. This could happen, for example, if the Bank of Canada announces an interest rate decrease or increase.

Once you opt into KOHO Save, all cash balances from your KOHO Save account(s) will be held in trust at a Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) member institution. CDIC is a federal Crown corporation. CDIC is not a bank or a private insurance company. CDIC protects eligible deposits held at CDIC member institutions (List of Members) in case of a member’s failure.

For eligible deposits held in trust at a CDIC member institution, CDIC insures up to $100,000 for each beneficiary named in a trust, provided certain disclosure rules are met. Coverage is free and automatic. For more information on how CDIC trust protection works, click here.

Once you sign up for KOHO and opt into KOHO Save, all the money in your KOHO account will earn 1.2% interest and you can spend from it to make your purchases. Your other account features (e.g. cashback and account fees for Premium) won’t change.
Nope. There are no account opening, account closing, moving money, or e-Transfer fees. There’s no minimum balance either.
