|Other Bank higher interest credit card||Scotiabank Value Visa
|Annual Interest Rate for first 6 months
||29.99%||0% for first 6 months|
|Interest payable for first 6 months||$449.85||
($0 interest + 1% BT fee)
|Total savings first 6 months||$420|
|Annual Interest Rate after 6 months
||12.99% after 6 months
|Interest payable after 6 months||$449.85||$194.85
|Total interest for 12 months||$899.70||$224.85|
|Total savings in the next 6 months||$255|
|You save||$675 in your first year|
For illustrative purposes only. This is an example based on a $3,000 balance at a 29.99% interest rate transferred to a Scotiabank Value® Visa* at our promotional interest rate of 0% for the first six months and 1% promotional balance transfer fee, and 12.99% interest after the first six months. After your first six months, your 0% interest rate on cash advances (including balance transfers and cash-like transactions) changes to 12.99% (plus $5 per transfer / advance). The 12.99% interest rate will apply to the amount of any unpaid balance transfers and other cash advances that were charged the 0% rate during your first six months. Assumes a constant balance (i.e. no other transactions posted) during a twelve month period. Actual savings will vary depending on actual account usage and other factors.
Potential First Year Value = Up to $704
Actual savings and rewards earned will depend on individual card usage and eligibility for applicable offers. Conditions apply.
Losing your promotional rate: If we don’t receive the minimum payment on your Account by the payment due date on your statement, two times in any consecutive 12-month period, you will lose the benefit of this promotional Rate Offer and the interest rates that apply on any unpaid balance will increase to the standard annual interest rates that apply to your Account (currently 24.99% on purchases and 27.99% on Cash Advances).
How we apply payments: In general, if you make a payment that exceeds the minimum payment on your statement, we will apply your payment on a proportionate basis among each group of billed charges on your Account. We group charges based on the interest rate that applies to the group of charges. Your payment cannot be applied to the balance(s) of your choice. See your credit card agreement for more information about how we apply payments to your Account.
First Year Annual Fee Waiver Offer Description and Conditions: We will waive the $29 annual fee for the primary card issued before October 31, 2023 on the Account for the first year only.
