Putting a set amount of your income aside every month, often called ‘paying yourself first,’ is one of the most effective ways to save, so we've designed an account to make this easier for you and reward your saving habits.
An Automatic Savings Plan automatically deducts a specified amount on a regular basis from your bank account and deposits it directly into your Savings Account.
By making regular contributions, you build your savings while also earning a real return on the amount already contributed. As a result of compound interest, your portfolio has the potential to grow faster than if you made a single lump-sum contribution.
Setting up your Automatic Savings Plan is easy. Contact us or visit your nearest Scotiabank branch for more information about Pre-Authorised Contributions and how you can easily transfer your existing funds to Scotiabank.

The interest you earn by saving regularly with an Automatic Savings Plan, plus the bonus interest of our Scotiabank Savings Reward Plan, can bring you closer to your savings target.
