The Ultimate Package monthly account fee is waived if a daily minimum closing balance of $5,000 is maintained for the entire month. If the monthly balance of the Ultimate Package account is less than the daily minimum of $5,000 but has a combined closing daily minimum balance of $30,000 across the Ultimate Package account and MomentumPLUS Savings Account(s) for the entire month, the monthly account fee of the Ultimate Package account will be charged then rebated within the first 10 business days of the following month. The account must have sufficient funds to cover any fees, including the monthly fee. The account balance of one (1) Ultimate Package Account plus more than one (1) MomentumPLUS Savings Account(s) qualifies to pay no monthly fees on one (1) Ultimate Package account. Account holders of the Ultimate Package who are also account holders of the MomentumPLUS Savings Account(s) qualify.
Additional fees apply for shared ABM services, cross-border debit transactions and other banking services not included in the chequing account package.
Accountholders who add Overdraft Protection to their account will have the $5.00 Overdraft Protection fee automatically waived when the account is overdrawn. Interest will remain to be payable on overdrawn balances, calculated daily at 21% (per annum) and charged monthly. The account must have a positive balance at least once every 30 days. A $5.00 handling fee will be charged for each item that is paid while the account is overdrawn more than the authorized limit. Subject to approval.
If you open an Ultimate Package account (the “Account”), on or after the date you open the Account (“Account Open Date”) you will receive an annual fee waiver (“Annual Fee Waiver”), each year for as long as you have one eligible Scotiabank Credit Card account (an “Eligible Card”) and the Account.
You will receive the Annual Fee Waiver, even if you opened an Eligible Card prior to the Account Open Date.
Eligible Cards are the Scotiabank Gold American Express, Scotiabank Passport™ Visa Infinite*, Scotia Momentum® Visa Infinite and Scotiabank Value® Visa* credit cards. Eligible Cards are subject to change.
Each Account will only receive one Annual Fee Waiver regardless of the number of accountholders on the Account or Eligible Cards opened.
The Annual Fee Waiver will be applied to the first annual fee for a primary Card charged on an Eligible Card after the Account Open Date.
If there is more than one Eligible Card after the Account Open Date, the Annual Fee Waiver will be applied only to the first annual fee for a primary card that is charged on an Eligible Card after the Account Open Date.
All other fees and charges applicable to the Eligible Card continue to apply.
Annual Fee Waiver will not be applied if your Account or Eligible Card is not open or is not in good standing and cannot be combined with any other annual fee waiver offer. Current annual fees, rates and other features for Eligible Cards are subject to change.
The Ultimate Package account includes non-Scotiabank Interac⁺ ABM cash withdrawals in Canada and cash withdrawals at non-Scotiabank Visa* or PLUS* ABMs within and outside of Canada. Account holders may still be charged a convenience fee by the other bank and ABM operator, not by Scotiabank.
Ultimate Package account holders receive an additional 0.10% annually added to the annual Regular Interest Rate of any MomentumPLUS Savings Account (the “0.10% Interest Rate Boost”) held by the Ultimate Package account holders. It will take 10 business days after opening an Ultimate Package account for the 0.10% Interest Rate Boost to apply to MomentumPLUS Savings Account(s). The 0.10% Interest Rate Boost will cease to apply effective the Ultimate Package closing date. The Regular Interest Rate plus the 0.10% Interest Rate Boost is calculated daily on the MomentumPLUS Savings Account(s) closing balance and paid monthly. Refer to the Current Rates Page on Scotiabank.com for current interest rates, which are subject to change at any time without advance notice.
Ultimate Package holders will receive Ultimate Package GIC interest rates (“Ultimate Package GIC Rates”) on Long Term Non-Redeemable GICs with terms between 1 and 10 years, excluding Special Rate GICs, Market Linked GICs and Guaranteed Income Optimizer GICs. The Ultimate Package GIC Rates are subject to change without notice. For the latest Ultimate Package GIC Rates, contact your branch or call 1-800-4-SCOTIA.
Interest is accrued daily on your GIC from the issue date up to, but not including, the maturity date. For Scotiabank GICs that pay interest during their term (monthly, semi-annually or annually) the last interest payment is paid at maturity.
