In order to qualify for the additional 1% cash back bonus until June 30, 2017, which also has a $300 maximum, you must open a Scotiabank Momentum Chequing Account (an “Eligible Account”) between March 1, 2017 and May 31, 2017. You must set up a monthly payroll or total of 2 monthly pre-authorized credits (PACs) or 2 monthly pre-authorized debits (PADs), or 1 PAC and 1 PAD. Automatic payroll, PADs and/or PACs must be set up and clear the account within 60 days of account opening. Employees of Scotiabank and individuals who are/ were previously holders or joint holders of an Eligible Account, Scotia® MoneybackTM Account, Scotia OneTM Account, Basic Banking Account, Basic Banking Plan, or Scotia Value® Account, are not eligible. Maximum one bonus offer per customer. For debit purchases after June 30, 2017, only the standard cash back of 1% will apply, provided the $300 maximum has not been reached. To receive any cash back, the new Eligible Account must remain open and in good standing throughout November 2017 which means that it has not been in continuous overdraft with or without Overdraft Protection for a period of three consecutive months. This offer cannot be duplicated or combined with any other offer. Scotiabank may withdraw or change this offer at any time without notice.

When you open a new SCENE-eligible bank account and get a SCENE ScotiaCard® debit card, you will receive 5,000 SCENE points on your SCENE membership account after you have set up: a pre-authorized payroll deposit or 2 pre-authorized transactions for a minimum of $25 per transaction. Your automatic payroll or pre-authorized transactions must clear your account within 60 days of opening your account, and thereafter at least once per month for twelve (12) consecutive months in order to qualify. 5,000 SCENE points will be added to your SCENE membership account within 2-3 statement cycles after your pre-authorized transactions clear your account. The account must be open and in good standing until the time of payout. SCENE members can redeem 1,000 points for a free General Admission movie ticket.
