Review by

The No-Fee Scotiabank Value Visa card is competitive and allows its cardholders to carry out the standard types of transactions that credit cards are known for. Because of the low interest rate, transferring high interest cards over to this one makes saving money possible. There is also the option to do cash advances when you need cash and even use the card internationally. The fees are low and the possibilities for use are endless.

As far as penalties, there is a penalty interest for late payments if two payments are made late consecutively or three are late in a row. There is also an overlimit fee that is charged once for every month that the card balance is over the credit limit.

But something that makes the card even more competitive is its security. Cardholders can be reimbursed for any fraudulent charges to their account as long as they have exercised good practices in securing their card. To monitor possible fraudulent activity, cardholders can use the online account management option to check the balance, available credit, and much more. If the question cannot be answered online, then customer service is available to help cardholders get answers and to also address missing or stolen cards.
