Scotiabank offers two of the richest rewards credit cards on the market and right now, for a limited time, the cards just got even richer. That’s because when you sign up and are approved for either the Scotia Momentum Infinite Visa card or the Scotiabank Gold American Express Card you’ll also get a free $100 gift card.
Here’s how it works:
Scotia’s Momentum Visa Infinite card is the cash back rewards king in Canada that pays 4% cash back on grocery and gas purchases, plus 2% cash back on drug store spending and on your recurring bill payments. As an added bonus, the $99 annual fee is waived in the first year.
This is my go-to rewards card for any of the above-mentioned spending and it helped me cash in on $350 of the $1,555 in rewards that I earned last year.
If you prefer collecting travel rewards then consider the Scotiabank Gold American Express card, which pays 4x points on groceries, gas, dining, and entertainment spending. The $99 annual fee is also waived in the first year.
I signed up for this card last year on a similar promotion and earned $232 between bonuses and spending.
Scotia Rewards are easy to redeem – just book a flight, hotel, or rental car using your card, wait for the purchase to appear on your online statement, then apply your points to travel (minimum 5,000 points, or $50).
$100 gift card
For the $100 gift card you can choose between Amazon, Starbucks, Future Shop, or the Ultimate Dining card – which includes Swiss Chalet, Montana’s, Kelsey’s, Harvey’s or Milestones restaurants.
This $100 gift card promotion doesn’t come around often, so if you’re in the market for a new rewards card – cash back or travel rewards – you should take advantage of this offer today.
