Some merchants may sell these types of products/services or are separate merchants who are located on the premises of these merchants, but are classified by American Express in another manner, in which case this added benefit would not apply. You earn 1 point per $1 on purchases made after you reach the $50,000 annual maximum and on all other purchases.

You can purchase eligible travel or related travel expenses at a travel provider through the Scotia Rewards Travel Service or a travel provider other than the Scotia Rewards Travel Service (e.g., other travel agencies, tour operators and online travel websites) (the “Other Travel Suppliers”). The minimum point redemption is 5,000 points (5,000 points is equivalent to $50 in travel savings) each time a redemption towards a Post Purchase Travel Redemption is made. These types of purchases at Other Travel Suppliers are called “Post Purchase Travel Redemptions”. Scotia Rewards points are redeemable for Post Purchase Travel Redemptions made through your Scotiabank credit card that earns Scotia Rewards (the “Program Card’). To redeem Scotia Rewards points for a Post Purchase Travel Redemption at Other Travel Suppliers, the purchase must first appear (post) on the Program Card Account. Scotia Rewards Card members can then redeem points towards the amount of the Post Purchase Travel Redemption charged to the Program Account through scotiarewards.com or by calling 1-800-665-2582. The Post Purchase Travel Redemption must be charged on your Program Card Account and recognized by our systems with the Merchant Category Codes or identifiers as set out in the terms and conditions of the Scotia Rewards Program. The Post Purchase Travel Redemption can include related taxes, booking fees, airport fees and travel insurance premiums. You must redeem Scotia Rewards points within 12 months from the date when the Post Purchase Travel Redemption is posted to the Program Card Account (the posting date). See the Post Purchase Travel Redemption section of the Scotia Rewards terms and conditions that are included with your new Card for full details.
