Offer may be changed, cancelled or extended without notice at any time and cannot be combined with any other offers.
50,000 Bonus Scotia Rewards Point Offer Description and Conditions: To be eligible for 30,000 bonus Scotia Rewards points (the "30,000 Point Bonus"), you must open a new Account by November 21, 2021 and have at least $1,000 in eligible purchases posted to your new Account in the first 3 months. To be eligible for an additional 20,000 bonus Scotia Rewards points (the "20,000 Point Bonus"), you must have at least $7,500 in eligible purchases posted to your new Account in your first year (12 months) from the Account open date. Eligible purchases include purchases (less any refunds, returns or other similar credits) but do not include payments, cash advances (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques or cash-like transactions), interest, fees or other charges.
The 30,000 Point Bonus will be credited to the primary cardholder's Scotia Rewards account within approximately 2-3 business days after the qualifying $1,000 in eligible purchases being posted to your Account within the first 3 months from the Account open date, provided the Account is open and in good standing. The 20,000 Point Bonus will be credited to the primary cardholder's Scotia Rewards account within approximately 2-3 business days after you have met the $7,500 annual spend threshold on the Account, provided your Account is open and in good standing. The Account is considered in good standing if it is not past due or over limit and the Cardholder(s) is not in breach of the Revolving Credit Agreement that applies to the Account.
first Year Annual Fee Waiver Offer Description and Conditions: We will waive the initial annual fee for the primary card and each additional supplementary card on the Account for the first year only.
Introductory 0.00% Balance Transfer Rate Offer Conditions: The introductory 0.00% interest rate on balance transfers applies only to cash advances (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques and cash-like transactions) (collectively "Cash Advances") subject to the conditions below. This introductory rate applies when the new Account is opened by November 21, 2021 and will continue for 6 months from date of Account opening (the "Promotional Period"). This Offer is subject to any available limit for Cash Advances (the "Cash Advance Available Limit") on your Account. This Offer cannot be used to transfer a balance from another Scotiabank Account, or to make a payment or deposit to another Scotiabank Account. After the Promotional Period, the 0.00% interest rate on any promotional Cash Advances (including any that remain unpaid after the Promotional Period ends) will increase to the preferred interest rate on Cash Advances (currently 22.99%). A Balance Transfer fee of 1% of the amount of each Balance Transfer transferred during the Promotional Period applies. If you don't pay the minimum payment on your Account by the payment due date on your statement, two times in any consecutive 12-month period, you will lose the benefit of this promotional rate Offer and the interest rates that apply on any unpaid balance will increase to the standard annual interest rates that apply to your Account (currently 24.99% on purchases and 27.99% on Cash Advances).
In general, if you make a payment that exceeds the minimum payment on your statement, we will apply your payment on a proportionate basis among each group of billed charges on your Account. We group charges based on the interest rate that applies to the group of charges. Your payment cannot be applied to the balance(s) of your choice. See your credit card agreement for more information about how we apply payments to your Account.
