During the Offer Period, a promotional interest rate of 3.25% (the “Promotional Interest Rate”) will be earned only on that portion of the SSAA Daily Balance that is greater than the SSAA Daily Balance as of November 9, 2022 (“New Deposits”). The “SSAA Daily Balance” means, with respect to any particular day, the closing balance in the eligible SSAA. In addition, New Deposits will continue to earn interest at the posted annual interest rate for the SSAA (click here for current rates).
The Promotional Interest Rate will cease to apply as of May 1, 2023. Promotional interest earned during the Offer Period will be calculated daily and paid monthly. All interest rates described herein are annual rates.
SSAAs must be open and in good standing in order to receive any interest calculated at the Promotional Interest Rate. For purposes of this Offer, a SSAA is not in 'good standing' if it has a negative balance or the account holder is in breach of the account agreement with Scotiabank.
It is the SSAA account holder’s responsibility to determine his or her maximum allowable annual contributions in SSAAs held in registered plans.
All other terms and conditions of the SSAA continue to apply, refer to www.scotiabank.com/ca/en/personal/bank-accounts/savings-accounts/savings-accelerator-account.html for details, including calculation of interest.
