†† The SCENE VISA Visa Card is subject to credit approval. To be eligible for the 2,000 bonus points, a purchase must be made within 60 days of opening your SCENE VISA Visa account. The 2,000 bonus points will be awarded within 2-3 business days of your first purchase. Only one welcome bonus is awarded per SCENE VISA Visa account. In cases where both the primary and secondary cardholders are SCENE members, the 2,000 bonus points will be credited to the cardholder making the first purchase. SCENE members can redeem 1,000 points for a free General Admission movie ticket.

Qualifying Students are full-time students enrolled at a Canadian university, community college, CEGEP or other recognized post-secondary institution. To take advantage of the Student Banking Advantage Plan account benefits, you will need to provide your branch with proof that you are enrolled full-time at a qualifying post-secondary institution each academic year prior to November 30th. When you are no longer enrolled full-time or you have not presented proof of enrolment, the plan will be removed and the account will automatically be converted to an account that is suitable to you based on your recent transaction behavior. You will be reminded by mail (each October, if necessary) to provide your proof of enrolment and will be advised of the pending change to your account type.
