A balance transfer is the act of moving high interest debt from one card to another card with a lower interest rate. The result is lower interest payments and the ability to pay down the debt faster. Before you apply, be sure to have your existing account details ready as you will want to request a balance transfer with your application. Be sure to read the fine print on the application page for details of each balance transfer offer.
◊ Eligibility and Exclusions: Individuals who are currently or were previously primary or secondary cardholders of a Scotiabank retail credit card in the past 2 years, including those that switch from an existing Scotiabank retail credit card, as well as employees of Scotiabank, are not eligible for the 3.99% introductory interest rate offer (the “Offer”). Subject to the above exclusions, Scotiabank small business credit cardholders are eligible for the Offer.
Offer Description and Conditions: The introductory 3.99% interest rate applies only to cash advances (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques and cash-like transactions) (collectively “Cash Advances”) subject to the conditions below (the “Offer”). This rate applies when the new Scotiabank credit card account (“Account”) is opened by March 1, 2020 and will continue for 6 months from date of Account opening (the “Promotional Period”). This Offer cannot be used to transfer a balance from another Scotiabank Account, or to make a payment or deposit to another Scotiabank Account. After the Promotional Period, the 3.99% interest rate on any promotional balance transfers (including any that remain unpaid after the Promotional Period ends) will increase to the preferred interest rate on Cash Advances (currently 16.99%). If you don’t pay the minimum payment on your Account by the payment due date on your statement, two times in any consecutive 12-month period, you will lose the benefit of this promotional rate Offer and the interest rates that apply on any unpaid balance will increase to the standard annual interest rates that apply to your Account (currently 24.99% on purchases and 27.99% on Cash Advances).
Payment Allocation: In general, if you make a payment that exceeds the minimum payment on your statement, we will apply your payment on a proportionate basis among each group of billed charges on your Account. We group charges based on the interest rate that applies to the group of charges. Your payment cannot be applied to the balance(s) of your choice. See your credit card agreement for more information about how we apply payments to your Account.

As the name suggests, a "balance transfer" allows you to transfer your outstanding balance owed to your current credit card issuer to another credit card at a lower interest rate. Balance transfers effectively reduce the amount of interest you pay while carrying a monthly balance on your credit card.
So in a nutshell, balance transfers save money. By reducing your interest payments, more of your monthly payments can go towards paying down the balance. This also means you’ll be debt-free sooner.
When evaluating balance transfer offers, there’s a few key points to pay attention to:
Getting the most out of a balance transfer requires a plan. The goal is to pay down your debt as quickly as possible during the introductory period. As you work to reduce your debt don’t take on new expenses. Be prepared for what happens when the into rate expires so there’s no surprises.
