1 Offer Description and Conditions: The Introductory 2.99% Interest Rate Offer (the “Offer”) applies only to eligible purchases and 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 July 01, 2022 and will continue for 6 months from date of Account opening (the “Promotional Period”). After the Promotional Period, purchase balances at the promotional rate of 2.99% (including any unpaid balances) will increase to the preferred interest rate for purchases (currently 19.99%) and the promotional 2.99% interest rate on any 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%). 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 ate 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 25.99% on purchases and 27.99% on cash advances (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques and cash-like transactions)). Eligible purchases include purchases (less any refunds, returns or other similar credits) but do not include interest, fees or other charges. This Offer is subject to any available limit for Cash Advances 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. There is no balance transfer fee on balances transferred during the Promotional Period.
Offer may be changed, cancelled or extended at any time without notice and cannot be combined with any other offers.
Eligibility and Exclusions: Individuals who are currently or were previously primary or secondary cardholders of a Scotiabank retail credit card in the past 2 years, including those that switch from an existing Scotiabank retail credit card, as well as employees of Scotiabank, are not eligible for the Offer. Subject to the above exclusions, Scotiabank small business credit cardholders are eligible for the Offer.
Payment Allocation: 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.
Rates and Fees: The current annual fee is $39 for the primary card and $15 for each additional supplementary card. The current preferred annual interest rates for the Account are: 19.99% on purchases and 22.99% on Cash Advances. All rates, fees, features and benefits are subject to change.

One card that is becoming quite popular throughout Canada is the Scotia Momentum VISA card. The Momentum VISA card was created with the thought that some people might prefer getting cash back instead of receiving rewards or points for using it.
Like having an extra savings account, the money that you save accrues on your monthly credit card statements for one year. At the end of that 12 month period, the money will either be deposited into your Scotiabank bank account, or it will show up as a credit on your VISA statement.
There are three main categories of businesses that will provide you with 2% cash back on your purchases: grocery stores, service stations, and drug stores. Almost every grocery store chain in Canada participate. It is a similar situation with service stations and drugstores. If you are unsure if your retailer is a participant, you can visit the Scotiabank website and download a comprehensive list.
If you want to, you can arrange to make recurring payments with your Visa card through participating retailers. This means that you should be able to pay your cable, gas, phone, and other utility bills using your card and more importantly, your code. Because of that, you will be able to receive 2% credited back to you on most of your monthly purchases.
By using a Scotia Momentum VISA card, you automatically qualify for a 20% discount on any car rental through Avis. You do not have to rent from Avis in Canada for this discount to be applicable. You can also take advantage of some technology that Scotia built into the Momentum VISA card called payWave. PayWave allows you to visit any participating merchant and wave your VISA card in the air near the cash register to pay your bill. It is designed to make it much easier and more secure for you to walk into a service station or restaurant and pay.
