• Scotiabank No Fee Savings Accounts Review

    Scotiabank offers Canadians a few different options when it comes to savings accounts. The two savings accounts reviewed below are the best no fee savings accounts that offer a competitive interest rate. The Scotiabank "Momentum Savings" account is currently offering up to 3.20% interest during a special promotional period which is a really great deal. The "Savings Accelerator" account is more of an all purpose savings account that offers tiered interest rates based on the balance in the account.

    Scotiabank Momentum Savings Account Review (1.05% Interest / Special Offer 3.20% Limited Time)

    The Scotiabank Momentum Savings Account is a great all-purpose no fee Canadian savings account that requires no minimum balance to receive a competitive interest rate. Scotiabank also offers additional bonus interest whether there is a promotion currently running or not with this account. The current promotion running now is a good one paying more than current 1 year GIC's at all major banks across Canada.
