4. Calculation of Bonus Interest 

In addition to any other interest payable on the MomentumPLUS Savings Account(s), for each day during the Offer Period, you will earn Bonus Interest calculated on the lower of:

a)    MomentumPLUS Savings Account Increase;

b)    Combined Increase; and

c)    $5,000,000

The actual date at which you enroll in accordance with paragraph 2(b) does not affect this calculation.

5. Payment of Bonus Interest    

a)    You will see Bonus Interest payments on your online MomentumPLUS Savings Account Transaction History as ‘Campaign Bonus Interest’. It will be deposited into your MomentumPLUS Savings Account within 7 days after the end of each campaign month (Example: May 7, June 7, July 7, etc.) in which you are enrolled under Paragraph 2 (b). Where an enrollment takes place on the last day of a month, Bonus Interest will be paid within 7 days after the end of the subsequent month-end (Example: If you enroll on May 31, payment will occur on July 7).

b)    Bonus Interest will be paid into the solely owned MomentumPLUS Savings Account with the highest balance or, if there is no solely owned MomentumPLUS Savings Account, it will be paid into the joint MomentumPLUS Savings Account (for which you are primary owner) with the highest balance.  For example, a customer who is a sole owner on a MomentumPLUS Savings Account as well as a primary joint accountholder on another MomentumPLUS Savings Account will see Bonus Interest for all balances in both accounts paid to their sole MomentumPLUS Savings Account.

c)    Applicable tax receipts for income earned will be issued in the name of the account holder(s) of the MomentumPLUS Savings Account(s) to where the interest has been paid.

6. General Terms

a)    MomentumPLUS Savings Accounts must be open and in good standing at the time of Bonus Interest payout in order for the Bonus Interest to be paid. For purposes of this Offer, a MomentumPLUS Savings Account is not in ‘good standing’ if it has a negative balance.

b)    All other terms and conditions of the Scotiabank MomentumPLUS Savings Account continue to apply. Refer to for details.
