• ScotiaBank No Fee Chequing Accounts Review

    ScotiaBank offers Canadians a number of chequing account options but only some of them can be used without paying a monthly fee. Scotia Bank uses a minimum balance formula for clients to qualify for free chequing. Basically you need to maintain a minimum balance in your account in order to have the monthly chequing account fee waived. One of the unique features ScotiaBank provides is the option you get with regards to your debit cards. They offer some that pay cash back on purchases, Travel Rewards and Scene Points. Normally loyalty programs are reserved for specialty credit cards, but ScotiaBank offers your choice of rewards for debit transactions. There are currently two available no fee chequing accounts offered that we have reviewed below.
