You will earn 10% cash back (the “Offer”) on the first $2000 posted to your new Scotia Momentum® for business Visa* credit card account (the “Account”) beginning on the Account open date and ending 3 months after that date or when you reach the maximum cash back value of $200, whichever comes first (the “Offer End Date”). After the Offer End Date, you will earn regular cash back on purchases at the regular cash back rate described in the Scotia Momentum® for business Visa* Cash Back Program (the “Program”) that applies to the Account (the “Cash Back Program Rate”). The 10% cash back rate for any category is made up of the sum of: (i) the regular Cash Back Program Rate (variable by categories as set out under the Program); and (ii) a “Bonus Cash Back Rate”.
Cash back earned under this Offer will be credited to your Account in 2 instalments so long as your Account is open and in good standing at time of payout of each:
- Bonus Cash Back Rate: The amount earned under the Cash Back Bonus Rate will be credited to your Account within 2- 3 months after the Offer End Date; and
- Regular Cash Back Rate: The amount earned under your regular Cash Back Program Rate will be credited to your Account according to the regular cash back payment schedule as set out under your Program (November).
EXAMPLE: If the regular Cash Back Program Rate for the Gas Stations category is 3% then the Cash Back Bonus Rate will be 7% for that category so that you will earn a total of 10% on the amount of all eligible everyday purchases in that category until the Offer End Date. If you make $2000 in eligible everyday purchases in the Gas Stations category, your cash back earnings will be credited to your Account as follows:
First, the Cash Back Bonus Rate of 7% x $2000 = $140 will be credited to your Account within 2-3 months of the Offer End Date.
Secondly, the Cash Back Program Rate of 3% x $2000 = $60 will be credited to your Account as per the regular cash back payment schedule (November).
All other terms of the Scotia Momentum® for business Visa* Cash Back Program Terms and Conditions apply. Offer applies to a new Account only opened by March 31, 2019. Former or current Scotiabank credit cardholders that transfer from an existing Scotiabank credit card account or re-open a closed Scotiabank credit card account are not eligible for this Offer. All rates, fees, features and benefits are subject to change. Offers may change, be extended and cannot be combined with any other offers.
A fee of 0% of the amount of each Cash Advance transferred during the Promotional Period applies to this Offer.
◊ The introductory 0.99% 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 March 31, 2019 and will continue for 6 months from Account opening date (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 0.99% 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 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.
Former or current Scotiabank credit cardholders 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 $49 for the primary card and $29 for each additional supplementary card.

You will earn 3% cash back on the first $50,000 you spend annually at gas stations, restaurants, office supply stores, and on recurring bill payments. 3% cash back applies at merchants which are classified in the Visa Inc. (VISA) network Service Stations (with or without ancillary services) and Automated Fuel Dispensers; Restaurants, Fast Food Restaurants and Bars; Stationery and Office Supply Stores; and Recurring Payments (Merchant Codes: 5541 & 5542; 5812, 5813 & 5814; and 5111 & 5943). Recurring payments are defined as payments made on a monthly or regular basis automatically billed by the merchant to your Scotia Momentum for business Visa card. Recurring payments are typically telecommunication, insurance, membership, subscriptions etc. purchases. Not all merchants offer recurring payments. (Please check with your merchant to see if they offer recurring payments on VISA cards.) Some merchants may sell these products/services or are separate merchants who are located on the premises of these merchants, but are classified by VISA in another manner, in which case this added benefit would not apply. You will earn 1% cash back on purchases made after you have reached the 3% $50,000 annual spend maximum and on all other eligible purchases made with the card. Cash back is not awarded for cash advances, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques, credit vouchers, payments, purchase returns, card fees, interest charges or service / transaction charges.
