Scotiabank Scene Visa Card: 4,000 Bonus SCENE Points = 4 Free Movies

Scotiabank Scene Visa Card: 4,000 Bonus SCENE Points = 4 Free Movies

Scotiabank has a special deal on their SCENE Visa card. When you sign up for the credit card before the 31st of October, 2013 you will get a bonus 4,000 SCENE points which is equivalent to four free movies!

The SCENE Visa card is a pretty good credit card if you like to treat yourself to movies every once in a while. It is a no-fee card with a 19.99% interest rate. I suggest you pay your card off each month so you never have to pay that. Why credit cards are useful is that you can earn points and if you are faithful on paying off your credit card, they can benefit you instead of cost you. The SCENE credit card allows you to:

  • Earn one SCENE point for every dollar you spend
  • Earn five SCENE points for every dollar you spend at participating Cineplex Entertainment theatres or online at cineplex.com

You also get a 20% AVIS rental discount with your VISA card.

With every 1,000 SCENE points you can redeem them for a free movie. So this promotion from Scotiabank for 4,000 bonus points with your first purchase gives you four free movies. Since Cineplex charges around $12.99 a ticket depending on where you live, this offer is worth over $50. If you want a 3D movie I think you have to pay a surcharge though. I have been debating on getting this card for as while though I am not sure if I would use it enough as I only see a couple movies a year. The last movie I saw was The Hobbit. I am really looking forward to seeing the new Star Trek movie though.

What was the last movie you saw in theatre?

Scotiabank Canada: Low Interest & Student Credit Cards

Scotiabank Canada: Low Interest & Student Credit Cards

Scotiabank has two interesting credit card officers I wanted to share with our Moosers. They have a no annual fee student credit card with an annual cash back feature (which is awesome) and they also offer a low interest no fee credit card if you are not a student.

The Student card offer is really good. It is for students only, ages 18-25 years. Here are the features:

  • Earn up to 1% money back every year on the purchases you’ve made with your card
  • Interest free grace period of at least 21 days on purchases
  • 20% discount rates at Avis Car Rental
  • Take advantage of other VisaPerks
  • Interest rate of 19.99% on purchases and 21.99% on balance transfers and cash advances

I suggest never carrying a balance. The 1% money back every year is awesome because student expenses can really add up – and that added cash back once a year is fairly nice.

This is a great card if you need a low interest credit card, without any bells and whistles. If you DO carry a balance on a higher interest rate card, it might be a good idea to switch and save yourself some dollars. It has an annual fee, but the money you will be saving in interest will highly outweigh the annual fee. Here are the features:

  • 11.99% interest rate on purchases and on balance transfers and cash advances
  • Interest free grace period of at least 21 days on purchases
  • 20% discount rates at Avis Car Rental
  • $29 annual fee
  • 0.99% interest rate on cash advances and balance transfers for the first six months for accounts opened by Feb. 28th

Carrying a balance is never a good idea – but if you have to carry a balance it is best to get onto a card that charges you the least amount of interest.
