Whether it's points toward free travel, a free meal on your next takeout order, or a free movie, we all love earning good rewards.

A recent survey found 56% of Canadians make purchases that earn rewards several times a week,1  and the loyalty programs that allow them to choose from rewards on purchases at restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, movie theatres, and clothing retailers are among the most popular. 2

With that in mind, SCENE, Cineplex® and Scotiabank launched Scene+, a loyalty program that offers you more rewards, more ways to earn and redeem, and more flexibility than ever before. Scene+ is free to join and replaces SCENE as the program that allows customers across Canada to earn points for nearly every transaction with select Scotiabank products and redeem them for rewards they like.

Here's the 101 about Scene+.

How it works

With the new and improved Scene+ program, you can now earn and redeem points towards travel, shopping, and banking. A new and wide range of partners, including retail platforms, online and offline brands, and our existing movie and restaurant partners, lets you choose rewards your way. 

The faster you earn points, the faster you can start redeeming them for rewards. Just use your eligible Scotiabank debit or credit card to boost your points earned when you show your Scene+ membership while shopping at Scene+ partners.

Become a member

First things first, sign up. Scene+ is free to join, and takes just four steps to start redeeming for rewards.
