Annual Interest Rate or Rates

Annual interest rates are in effect on the day the account is opened (whether or not a card is activated).

Purchases: 19.99%

Cash advances**, balance transfers and Scotia® Credit Card Cheques: 22.99%

Your preferred annual interest rates will increase to standard rates of 24.99% on purchases and 27.99% on cash advances, balance transfers and Scotia Credit Card Cheques if you do not make your minimum payment by the payment due date 2 or more times in any 12 month period. This will take effect in the third statement period following the missed payment that caused the rates to increase. These rates will remain in effect until you make your minimum payments by the payment due date for 12 consecutive months.

If your account is part of a Scotia® Total Equity Plan, these higher standard rates do not apply.

Interest-free Grace Period

21 days

You will benefit from an interest-free grace period of at least 21 days for new purchases if you pay off your balance on your monthly statement in full by the payment due date. This grace period will be automatically extended to at least 25 days on your next monthly statement whenever you do not pay your balance in full by the payment due date. Upon paying your balance in full by the payment due date, this grace period will revert back to at least 21 days on your next monthly statement.

There is no interest-free grace period for cash advances, balance transfers and Scotia Credit Card Cheques.

Minimum Payment

Interest Charges + Fees + $10.00 plus any overdue or overlimit amount.

Your minimum payment will include Interest Charges on your monthly statement, plus cash advance fee(s), plus any dishonoured payment fees, plus any dishonoured Scotia Credit Card Cheque fees, plus $10.00.

In addition, amounts showing on your monthly statement as OVERDUE or OVERLIMIT must be paid immediately and will be added to the minimum payment.

Foreign Currency Conversion


Transactions made in a foreign currency will be converted and posted to your account in Canadian currency. The exchange rate is determined by Visa Inc. on our behalf on the date that the transaction is settled with Visa Inc. This exchange rate may be different from the rate in effect on the transaction date. When the transaction is posted to your account, in addition to the exchange rate, you will be charged a foreign currency conversion mark-up equal to 2.50% for each foreign currency transaction. The mark-up applies to both debit and credit transactions.

For account payments and Scotia Credit Card Cheques, the exchange rate will be the posted rate charged to customers at any branch of The Bank of Nova Scotia on the date the transaction occurs. For any reversal of these transactions, the exchange rate will be determined in the same manner as of the date that the transaction is reversed.
