You will earn 2% Cash Back on the first $25,000 in purchases that are charged annually on your Scotiabank Momentum Visa Card Account (the “Account”) on gas station, grocery store and drug store purchases and on recurring payments. 2% Cash Back applies at merchants which are classified in the Visa Inc. (Visa) network as Grocery Stores & Supermarkets, Drug Stores & Pharmacies, Service Stations (with or without ancillary services), Automated Fuel Dispensers and Recurring Payments (Merchant Codes: 5411, 5541, 5542 & 5912). Some merchants may sell these products/services or are separate merchants who are located on the premises of these merchants, but are classified by Visa in another manner, in which case this added benefit would not apply. Recurring payments are payments made on a monthly or regular basis automatically billed by the merchant to your Account. Recurring payments are typically for purchases of subscriptions, telecommunication, insurance, gym memberships, etc. Not all merchants offer recurring payments. (Please check with the merchant to see if they offer recurring payments on Visa Accounts) You will earn 1% Cash Back on purchases made on the Account after the 2% $25,000 annual spend max has been reached. Cash Advances, balance transfers, Scotia Credit Card Cheques, returns, refunds or other similar credits, payments, fees, interest or service/transaction charges do not qualify for Scotia Momentum Cash Back.
Offer Description and Conditions: The Introductory 0% Balance Transfer Rate Offer (the “Offer”) applies only to eligible cash advances (including balance transfers and cash-like transactions) (collectively “Cash Advances”) subject to the conditions below. This introductory rate applies if the new Account is opened by October 31, 2023 and will continue for 6 months from date of Account opening (the “Promotional Period”). After the Promotional Period, the promotional 0% interest rate on any Cash Advances (including any amount of those Cash Advances that remain unpaid after the Promotional Period ends) will increase to the preferred interest rate on Cash Advances (currently 22.99%). A balance transfer fee of 2% of the amount of each Cash Advance transferred or made during the Promotional Period applies (minimum fee of $5.00). A $5 Cash Advance fee applies to all other Cash Advances.
This Offer cannot be used for any Scotiabank account including to transfer a balance from another Scotiabank account, or to make a payment or deposit to another Scotiabank account. Offer may be changed, cancelled or extended at any time without notice and cannot be combined with any other offers.
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 (preferred annual interest rates will increase to standard rates of 24.99% on purchases and 27.99% on Cash Advances). This Offer is subject to any available limit for Cash Advances on your Account. All other terms and conditions of the Program Terms continue to apply during the Offer period.
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.
