Cash Back Credit Cards

Cash Back credit cards offer great incentives for the savvy spender. For every dollar you spend, you receive a certain portion back in the form of cash rewards – generally around 1% of your purchases. Look for cards that offer percentage bonuses in shopping categories that match your spending habits. Cash Back reward cards are best suited for people who use their credit card for everyday purchases, but pay off the balance each month.

  • Choose a cash back card if you want a simple, no hassle rewards program.
  • Take advantage of bonuses that allow you to earn more cash back in select spending categories. These bonuses can really add up!
  • Choose a low rate card if you plan on carrying a monthly balance or are financing a major purchase.

  • Cash back on everyday spending with no annual fee
  • 1% cash back on eligible gas station, grocery store and drug store purchases and recurring bill payments
  • 0.5% cash back on all other eligible everyday purchases
  • Rates, fees and other information are effective as of February 1, 2018. Subject to change.

◊ The introductory 7.99% interest rate applies only to eligible purchases subject to the conditions below (the “Offer”). This rate applies when the new Scotiabank credit card account (“Account”) is opened by June 30, 2019 and will continue for 6 months from date of Account opening (the “Promotional Period”). After the Promotional Period, purchase balances at the promotional rate of 7.99% (including any unpaid balances) will increase to the preferred interest rate for purchases (currently 19.99%). 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 and purchases will increase to the standard annual interest rates that apply to your Account (currently 24.99% on purchases and 27.99% on cash advances (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques and cash-like transactions)). Eligible purchases include purchases (less any refunds, returns or other similar credits) but do not include payments, cash advances (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques or cash-like transactions), interest, fees or other charges.

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.

Former or current Scotiabank credit cardholders of any kind in the past 2 years, including those that transfer from an existing Scotiabank credit card account or re-open a closed Scotiabank credit card account, are excluded from this Offer.
There is currently no annual fee for the primary card and no fee for each additional supplementary card.

The current preferred annual interest rates for the Account are: 19.99% on purchases and 22.99% on cash advances (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques and cash-like transactions).

All rates, fees, features and benefits are subject to change. Offer may be changed, cancelled or extended and cannot be combined with any other offers.

1 Welcome Bonus: Must apply by September 20, 2019. Welcome Bonus of 10% in Cash Back Dollars ("Welcome Bonus Rebate") applies to new TD Cash Back Visa Infinite Accounts ("Account") in the first 3 months of Account opening ("First 3 Months") to a maximum total collective spend of $2000 ("Welcome Bonus Cap") on all purchases charged to your TD Cash Back Credit Card Account ("Account"), and recurring bill payments set up on your Account ("Pre-Authorized Payments"). Rebate of the Annual Fee for the first year is for the Primary Cardholder only and will occur when you have applied for an Account by September 20, 2019. Rebate will be applied within 2 monthly statements from the date of Account opening. The Annual Fee for any Authorized User Cards added to the Account continues to apply. Any returned items, refunds, rebates or other similar credits on any Purchases or Pre-Authorized Payment made during the First 3 Months will reduce or cancel the Cash Back Dollars earned at the Welcome Bonus Rebate on the original Purchase or Pre-Authorized Payment, as applicable. Welcome Bonus Cap: Once the Welcome Bonus Cap is reached, any further Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments made in the First 3 Months will earn Cash Back Dollars at the regular accelerated 3% rebate that applies to each of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments as set out in your Cardholder Agreement ("Accelerated Rebate"). All additional other purchases (“Other Purchases”) made in the First 3 Months will earn Cash Back Dollars at the regular rate of 1% rebate that applies each Other Purchase. Applicability of Welcome Bonus Rebate: Welcome Bonus Rebate is in place of, and not in addition to, the Accelerated Rebate. $15,000 Cap on each of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments: After the First 3 Months, the Accelerated Rebate will apply to all Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments charged to your Account up to a $15,000 maximum net annual spend ("$15,000 Cap") for each of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments. Once the $15,000 Cap is reached for any of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases or Pre-Authorized Payments, then any further Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments made on the Account will only earn Cash Back Dollars at the standard rebate of 1% that applies to all other Purchases on the Account as set out in your Cardholder Agreement. First Year Reduction of $15,000 Cap: During the first year that the Account is open, the $15,000 Cap for each of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments will be reduced by the actual corresponding amount of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments made in the First 3 Months. For example, if you spend $2,000 in Gas Purchases in the First 3 Months, the $15,000 Cap for Gas Purchases will be reduced by $2,000 to $13,000 for the remaining 9 months of the first year the Account is open. Merchant Category Codes: To earn the Welcome Bonus Rebate on Gas Purchases and Grocery Purchases, the Gas Purchase or Grocery Purchase must be made at merchants classified through the Visa network with a Merchant Category Code ("MCC") that identifies them in the "gas" or "grocery" category. Some merchants may sell gas or gas station services or products, or groceries or grocery items, or have separate merchants located on their premises that also sell gas or gas station services or products, or groceries or grocery items, but may not be classified with a gas or grocery MCC and such Purchases will not earn the Welcome Bonus Rebate. If you have questions about the MCC that applies to a Purchase, contact TD at 1-800-983-8472. Other Conditions: Welcome Bonus may be changed, withdrawn or extended at any time and cannot be combined with any other offer unless otherwise indicated.

2 Primary Cardholder remains liable for all charges to the Account, including those made by any Authorized User. Maximum of 3 Authorized User Cards on the Account.

3 Earn 3% in Cash Back Dollars ("Gas Rebate") for each $1.00 in Purchases of gas or gas station services or products ("Gas Purchases") charged to your TD Cash Back Credit Card Account ("Account") and earn 3% in Cash Back Dollars ("Grocery Rebate") for each $1.00 in Purchases of groceries or grocery items ("Grocery Purchases") charged to your Account. Any returned items, refunds, rebates or other similar credits will reduce or cancel the Cash Back Dollars earned on the original Gas Purchase or Grocery Purchase, as applicable. $15,000 Cap: Each of the Gas Rebate and the Grocery Rebate is only available to a $15,000 maximum net annual spend ("$15,000 Cap"). Once the $15,000 Cap has been reached for either Gas Purchases or Grocery Purchases, then any further Gas Purchases and Grocery Purchases made on the Account will only earn Cash Back Dollars at the standard rebate of 1% that applies to all other Purchases on the Account as set out in your Cardholder Agreement ("Standard Rebate"). Applicability of Gas Rebate and Grocery Rebate: Each of the Gas Rebate and the Grocery Rebate is in place of, and not in addition to, the Standard Rebate. First Year Reduction of $15,000 Cap: During the first year that the Account is open, the $15,000 Cap for each of Gas Purchases and Grocery Purchases will be reduced by the actual corresponding amount of Gas Purchases and Grocery Purchases made in the first 3 months of Account opening ("First 3 Months") that are subject to the Welcome Bonus in Cash Back Dollars. For example, if you spend $2,000 in Gas Purchases in the First 3 Months, the $15,000 Cap for Gas Purchases will be reduced by $2,000 to $13,000 for the remaining 9 months of the first year the Account is open. Merchant Category Codes: To earn the Gas Rebate and/or Grocery Rebate, the Gas Purchases and/or Grocery Purchases must be made at merchants classified through the Visa network with a Merchant Category Code ("MCC") that identifies them in the "gas" or "grocery" category. Some merchants may sell gas or gas station services or products, or groceries or grocery items, or have separate merchants located on their premises that also sell gas or gas station services or products, or groceries or grocery items, but may not be classified with a gas or grocery MCC and such Purchases will not earn the Gas Rebate or Grocery Rebate, as applicable. If you have questions about the MCC that applies to a Purchase, contact TD at 1-800-983-8472. Other Conditions: Offer may be changed, withdrawn or extended at any time and cannot be combined with any other offer.

4 Earn 3% in Cash Back Dollars ("PAP Rebate") on each $1.00 in payments made on a monthly or other regularly recurring basis for merchant bills, including insurance premiums, magazine/newspaper/online streaming subscriptions, membership fees and telecommunication fees, that are set up by the merchant with your consent to be automatically charged to your TD Cash Back Credit Card Account ("Account") and that are classified through the Visa network as "recurring payments" ("Pre-Authorized Payments"). You must confirm with your merchant if they can accept Pre-Authorized Payments. Any returned items, refunds, rebates or other similar credits will reduce or cancel the Cash Back Dollars earned on the original Pre-Authorized Payment. $15,000 Cap: The PAP Rebate is only available to a $15,000 maximum net annual spend ("$15,000 Cap"). Once the $15,000 Cap has been reached, then any further Pre-Authorized Payments made on the Account will only earn Cash Back Dollars at the standard rebate of 1% that applies to all other Purchases on the Account as set out in your Cardholder Agreement ("Standard Rebate"). Applicability of PAP Rebate: The PAP Rebate is in place of, and not in addition to, the Standard Rebate. First Year Reduction of $15,000 Cap: During the first year that the Account is open, the $15,000 Cap for Pre-Authorized Payments will be reduced by the actual corresponding amount of Pre-Authorized Payments made in the first 3 months of Account opening ("First 3 Months") that are subject to the Welcome Bonus in Cash Back Dollars. For example, if you set up $2,000 in Pre-Authorized Payments in the First 3 Months, the $15,000 Cap for Pre-Authorized Payments will be reduced by $2,000 to $13,000 for the remaining 9 months of the first year the Account is open. Other Conditions: Offer may be changed, withdrawn or extended at any time and cannot be combined with any other offer.

5 Earn 1% in Cash Back Dollars ("Standard Rebate") on each $1.00 for all other Purchases ("Other Purchases") charged to your TD Cash Back Credit Card Account ("Account"). Any returned items, refunds, rebates or other similar credits will reduce or cancel the Cash Back Dollars earned on the original Other Purchase. Other Conditions: Offer may be changed, withdrawn or extended at any time and cannot be combined with any other offer.

1 You will earn 10% cash back (the “Offer”) on the first $2,000 in eligible purchases posted to your new Scotia Momentum® Visa Infinite* credit card account (the “Account”) beginning on the Account open date and ending 3 months after that date or when you reach the maximum cash back value of $200, whichever comes first (the “Offer End Date”). Eligible purchases include purchases (less any refunds, returns or other similar credits) but do not include payments, cash advances (including balance transfers, Scotia® Credit Card Cheques or cash-like transactions), interest, fees or other charges. After the Offer End Date, you will earn regular cash back on purchases at the regular cash back rate described in the Scotia Momentum Visa Infinite Cash Back Program (the “Program”) that applies to the Account (the “Cash Back Program Rate”). The 10% cash back rate for any category is made up of the sum of: (i) the regular Cash Back Program Rate (variable by categories as set out under the Program); and (ii) a “Bonus Cash Back Rate”. Cash back earned under this Offer will be credited to your Account in 2 instalments so long as your Account is open and in good standing at time of payout of each:

1. Bonus Cash Back Rate: The amount earned under the Cash Back Bonus Rate will be credited to your Account within 2- 3 months after the Offer End Date; and

2. Regular Cash Back Rate: The amount earned under your regular Cash Back Program Rate will be credited to your Account according to the regular cash back payment schedule as set out under your Program (November).

EXAMPLE: If the regular Cash Back Program Rate for the Gas Stations and Grocery Stores category is 4% then the Cash Back Bonus Rate will be 6% for that category so that you will earn a total of 10% on the amount of all eligible everyday purchases in that category until the Offer End Date. If you make $2,000 in eligible everyday purchases in the Gas Stations and Grocery Stores category, your cash back earnings will be credited to your Account as follows:

First, the Cash Back Bonus Rate of 6% x $2,000 = $120 will be credited to your Account within 2-3 months of the Offer End Date.

Secondly, the Cash Back Program Rate of 4% x $2,000 = $80 will be credited to your Account as per the regular cash back payment schedule (November).

The Account is considered in good standing if it is not delinquent (past due) or over limit and the Cardholder(s) is not in breach of the Revolving Credit Agreement that applies to the Account.

All other terms of the Scotia Momentum® Visa Infinite* Cash Back Program Terms and Conditions apply. Offer applies to a new Account only opened by April 30, 2019.

How to choose the best cash back card

The key to getting the right credit card is to make sure the card works for you, not against you. For example, if you have a habit of carrying a monthly balance then it's advisable to choose a card with a low interest rate. Generally, rewards cards and cash back cards do not have low interest rates. However, if you pay off your balance every month then using a rewards card can actually add to your bottom line.

Cash back credit cards offer a no-hassle way to earn rewards on all your purchases. There's no points to keep track of and you can always get exactly what you want with cash. As the saying goes, "cash is king."

When evaluating cash back credit cards, there’s a few key points to pay attention to:

  • Introductory offers: Some cards offer additional cash back earning potential for a limited time. Plan your large purchases during these intro periods to maximize your cash back earnings.
  • Special categories: Getting a cash back card that rewards your spending habits is key. Some cards offer increased cash back earnings in select categories such as gasoline or groceries. Others allow you to choose the categories that work best for you. Analyze your spending to take advantage of thee benefits.
  • Cash back percentage: Your cash back earnings are based on a percentage of your monthly spend on the card. A 1% earnings rate is common, but can be as high as 5% for special offers or premium cards. If there's an annual fee attached, make sure the cash back (and your spending habits) will outweigh the fee.

Choosing the best cash back credit card depends on your spending habits and goals. Take advantage of special offers and spending categories. Remember rewards based cards generally do not have low interest rates so don't carry a monthly balance on them.
