1 You will earn 10% cash back (the “Offer”) on the first $2,000 in eligible purchases posted to your new Scotia Momentum® Visa Infinite* credit card account (the “Account”) beginning on the Account open date and ending 3 months after that date or when you reach the maximum cash back value of $200, whichever comes first (the “Offer End Date”). Eligible purchases include purchases (less any refunds, returns or other similar credits) but do not include payments, cash advances (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques or cash-like transactions), interest, fees or other charges. After the Offer End Date, you will earn regular cash back on purchases at the regular cash back rate described in the Scotia Momentum Visa Infinite Cash Back Program (the “Program”) that applies to the Account (the “Cash Back Program Rate”). The 10% cash back rate for any category is made up of the sum of: (i) the regular Cash Back Program Rate (variable by categories as set out under the Program); and (ii) a “Bonus Cash Back Rate”. Cash back earned under this Offer will be credited to your Account in 2 instalments so long as your Account is open and in good standing at time of payout of each:
1. Bonus Cash Back Rate: The amount earned under the Cash Back Bonus Rate will be credited to your Account within 2- 3 months after the Offer End Date; and
2. Regular Cash Back Rate: The amount earned under your regular Cash Back Program Rate will be credited to your Account according to the regular cash back payment schedule as set out under your Program (November).
EXAMPLE: If the regular Cash Back Program Rate for the Gas Stations and Grocery Stores category is 4% then the Cash Back Bonus Rate will be 6% for that category so that you will earn a total of 10% on the amount of all eligible everyday purchases in that category until the Offer End Date. If you make $2,000 in eligible everyday purchases in the Gas Stations and Grocery Stores category, your cash back earnings will be credited to your Account as follows:
First, the Cash Back Bonus Rate of 6% x $2,000 = $120 will be credited to your Account within 2-3 months of the Offer End Date.
Secondly, the Cash Back Program Rate of 4% x $2,000 = $80 will be credited to your Account as per the regular cash back payment schedule (November).
The Account is considered in good standing if it is not delinquent (past due) or over limit and the Cardholder(s) is not in breach of the Revolving Credit Agreement that applies to the Account.

Review by CreditCardsLab Canada
These days, consumers are exposed to a vast number of financial products, whether it's credit card offers, invitations to change their banks and a host of other enticements. For most of us, though, we just want our bank accounts and credit cards to simply serve their purpose, minus the unnecessary hype. That's exactly why more are turning to ScotiaBank and its Momentum Visa offer.
The rewards program is impressive as are the cash back opportunities. In fact, many of your purchases can include up to 4 percent cash back. Other eligible purchases can earn up to 3 percent cash back. See the website for details.
For more than a century ScotiaBank has strived to provide consumers with better choices when it comes to their money. That's one reason why all of its products are designed to be affordable and secure. With Visa, card holders know there are safety mechanisms in place to protect their information. Not only that, but convenience is a priority, which is one reason why payWave is so successful. Customers also have the power of ScotiaBank, as well. Great rewards, an easy application process and two of the biggest names in the industry is our idea of a solid credit choice.
