Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card

Updated 01.12.2022

About Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card

A Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card is a no-fee credit card with cash back earning opportunities. Although it doesn’t feature premium insurance coverages or exclusive benefits from Visa, this credit card can be a good option for clients looking for an affordable credit solution.

From time to time, there are special offers for a Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card at Scotiabank. With such offers, you can earn cash back at an accelerated rate when meeting the minimum spending requirements and get an introductory interest rate on balance transfers for a limited period.

Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card features

A Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card features a 19.99% interest rate on purchases and 22.99% — on cash advances. The annual fee for this credit card and each supplementary card issued equals zero. The minimum credit limit provided by a Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card is $500.

Purchases made with your Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card at gas stations, grocery stores, and drugstores and recurring bill payments will bring you 1% cash back. Purchases in all other eligible categories will bring you 0.5% cash back. 

With your Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card, you can save up to 25% off base rates when paying for car rentals at participating AVIS and Budget locations in Canada and the U.S.

The insurance coverages included in a Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card are purchase security and extended warranty insurance. The purchase security plan assumes 90-day coverage of eligible purchases made with your Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card in the event of loss, theft, or damage. The extended warranty plan doubles the period of the original manufacturer’s warranty, up to a maximum of one additional full year. You can also add optional Scotia Credit Card Protection to ensure coverage of your credit card balance and regular payments in case of unexpected life situations.

A Scotia Momentum® No-Fee Visa Card is eligible for the Scotia SelectPay™, which means you can divide the outstanding balance from eligible credit card purchases of $100 and more into 3, 6, or 12 fixed monthly installment payments. This way, you won’t have to pay interest on your SelectPay installment plan, just a total fee of 2%.
