Additional terms applicable to all Scotiabank credit card products

Grace Period: Purchases and Cash Advances

You will benefit from an interest free period of at least 21 days for new purchases and fees, if you pay your statement balance in full by the payment due date shown on your statement. If you do not pay your statement balance in full by the payment due date, you must then pay the interest on all your purchases and fees shown on that month’s statement from the transaction date until we receive your payment for the total amount you owe. There is no interest free period for cash advances. Interest is charged from the day the cash advance is made until we receive your payment for the total amount you owe.

Annual Interest Rate 

The applicable interest rate is established upon approval of your account. You can find your interest rate printed on the materials accompanying your credit card. 

Annual Fees

Annual fees are charged on the first day of the month following your account opening (whether or not the card is activated) and annually thereafter on the first day of the same month. 

Maximum Annual Interest Rate

If you do not pay at least your minimum payment by the payment due date, we may, at our discretion, increase the interest rate applicable to all new and existing balances up to 29.49%. You will continue to pay the higher rate of interest, until such time as you have paid the minimum monthly payment by the payment due date for six consecutive months. Your interest rate for cash advances will always be 2.5% - 3.0% higher than the current interest rate on your purchases.

Foreign Currency Transactions 

Foreign currency transactions (including both purchases and cash advances) and credits (returns) to your credit card account will be converted to the currency of the credit card at the foreign exchange rate equivalent to the rate determined on our behalf by Mastercard® International Incorporated, plus a percentage mark-up may be determined by the Bank from time to time, on the date the transaction is debited or credited to the credit card account. The exchange rate at the date of conversion may be different from the exchange rate in effect on the date the transaction was made. 

Calculating Balance for Purchase and Cash Advances

Two-cycle average daily balance, including new purchases and cash advances.

Minimum Charge for Financing 

No minimum charge for financing.

Rates and fees are in effect as of January 2, 2020 and are subject to change at any time. ** Cash Advance Fees are 2-5% - 3.0% of the advanced amount (ATM and Branches) (note respective Minimum Payments) plus applicable interest charges. ‡ Where available. ® Registered trademarks of The Bank of Nova Scotia, used under licence.
