Start getting travel rewards with the Scotia Passport Card now
via Scotia secure application
in free travel after $1,000 in 3 months
Almost all credit cards in Canada charge you a 2.5% transaction fee over the exchange rate for all purchases made in foreign currency.
All travelers should consider this card to save 2.5% on every dollar spent abroad: this is by far the best card to use outside Canada. You also get 6 free passes to access airport lounges.
The welcome bonus is really not the highest, but if you travel a lot, it’s a great addition to any Travel Hacking strategy. Not to be confused with the Scotia Passport Visa, it’s only the Visa Infinite that is interesting.
Welcome bonus of 20,000 Scotia Points
= $200 (fixed value of 1.0 ¢/pt)
Points accumulated on the $1,000 minimum spend
= $10 (minimum value)
= $139 (deducted from the total of free travel)
Total of $71 in free travel
+ all points accumulated with your regular purchases
After the $71 Welcome Bonus …
Here is the Points earn rate:
1 pt (1.0%) per $ everywhere
2 pts (2.0%) per $ in grocery stores, restaurants, entertainment and public transportation
Scotia Points are Fixed-Value Points and can be applied to travel expenses as a credit, so they are extremely flexible but can not give you more for your money.
