Earn 10% cash back on all purchases for the first 3 months (up to $2,000 in total purchases).1 Plus, no annual fee in the first year.2 A welcome offer of up to $299.3 To learn more & sign up for the card, click here.
1You 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.

Well, that was a few years ago now so I thought it was time to have her back on the show, but to talk about something very different. As I mentioned at the beginning of the show, we bumped into each other at Melissa Leong’s book launch for Happy Go Money and started talking about the different ways both genders think, talk and manage money. It’s a subject that Robin has been researching quite a bit lately, and one that I thought would make for a great conversation on the podcast since gender roles is a fairly hot topic right.
As humans, we all deal with money differently from one another. As the saying goes, personal finance is personal so there’s really no such thing as a one-size-fits-all financial solution. But, not only do we deal with money different as individuals, there’s a lot of research to indicate striking differences between how men and women handle money.
Here’s one of the studies that Robin mentions in the podcast by CPA Canada:
What much of the research shows is that women tend to be more risk averse or risk conscious, we struggle with financial confidence, and we tend to be better investors than men. We chat about all this and more in the episode, so enjoy!
