If the eligible account is opened with a SCENE ScotiaCard, the 5,000 SCENE points will be deposited to your SCENE membership account within 3 statement cycles. If the eligible account is opened with a Passport ScotiaCard, the 5,000 Scotia Reward points will be deposited to your Scotia Rewards account within 3 statement cycles. Existing Scotiabank chequing account holders are not eligible for this offer. For joint accounts, if at the time of awarding the offer each customer has a SCENE ScotiaCard or Passport ScotiaCard, points will be split equally.

5 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 behaviour. 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.
