To qualify for the 5,000 SCENE points or 5,000 Scotia Rewards points (the “Offer”), you must (1) open a new Student Banking Advantage Plan (an "Eligible Account") with a SCENE ScotiaCard or Passport ScotiaCard, respectively, by October 31, 2019, and (2) set up your payroll so that it is deposited into your Eligible Account or set up a minimum of 2 separate recurring pre-authorized transactions (“PATs”) for a minimum of $25 per transaction for twelve (12) consecutive months. Your first payroll deposit or recurring PATs must be deposited or credited in the Eligible Account within 60 days of account opening. The Eligible Account must be open and in good standing until the time of payout. The Eligible Account is not in "good standing" if (i) it has a negative balance exceeding the authorized overdraft limit or (ii) it has been in continuous overdraft for a period of three (3) consecutive months. If you are not already a SCENE member, you will need to open a SCENE membership account and then connect it to your SCENE ScotiaCard. If the Eligible Account is opened with a SCENE ScotiaCard, the bonus SCENE points will appear as an adjustment on your SCENE membership account within 3 statement cycles after Eligible Account opening. If the Eligible Account is opened with a Passport ScotiaCard, the bonus Scotia Rewards points will appear as an adjustment on your Scotia Rewards account within 3 statement cycles after Eligible Account opening. Employees of The Bank of Nova Scotia (“Scotiabank”) and individuals who are currently or were previously holders/ joint holders of a Scotiabank chequing account within the last 2 years are not eligible for this Offer. For joint accounts, if at the time of payout of the bonus points both joint account holders have either a SCENE ScotiaCard or Passport ScotiaCard, points will be split equally, otherwise points will be awarded to the primary account holder. This Offer is non-transferable; maximum one Offer per customer. All rates, fees, features and benefits are subject to change. Offers may change, be extended 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 1,250 bonus SCENE points offer (the “Offer”). Subject to the above exclusions, Scotiabank small business credit cardholders are eligible for the Offer.
Offer Description and Conditions: To be eligible for the 1,250 bonus SCENE points, an eligible purchase must be posted to the new SCENE Visa Student account (“Account”) within 2 months of the Account open date. Eligible purchases include purchases (less any refunds, returns or other similar credits) but do not include payments, cash advances (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques or cash-like transactions), interest, fees or other charges. The bonus points will be awarded within 2-3 business days of the first purchase posted to the Account, provided the Account is open and in good standing at time of payout. The Account is considered in good standing if it is not delinquent (past due) or over limit and the Cardholder(s) is not in breach of the Revolving Credit Agreement that applies to the Account. Only one welcome bonus is awarded per SCENE Visa Account. In cases where both the primary and supplementary cardholders are SCENE members, the bonus points will be credited to the SCENE membership account that has been connected to the SCENE Visa card. Offer applies only to new Scotiabank credit card accounts approved by October 31, 2019.
Rates and Fees: There is currently no annual fee for the primary card and no fee 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 (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques and cash-like transactions). 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.
