◊ The introductory 2.99% interest rate applies only to cash advances (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques and cash-like transactions) (collectively Cash Advances) subject to the conditions below (the Offer). This rate applies when the new Scotiabank credit card account (Account) is opened by June 30, 2019 and will continue for 6 months from date of Account opening (the Promotional Period). 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 2.99% interest rate on any promotional balance transfers (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 dont 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.
A Balance Transfer fee of 0% of the amount of each Balance Transfer transferred during the Promotional Period applies to this Offer.
Former or current Scotiabank credit cardholders of any kind in the past 2 years, including those that transfer from an existing Scotiabank credit card account or re-open a closed Scotiabank credit card account, are excluded from this Offer.
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. Offers may be changed, cancelled or extended and cannot be combined with any other offers.

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.
