What Has Your Debit Card Done for You Lately?

Scotiabank's Suite of Debit Cards Rewards Canadians for Everyday Purchases

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - July 13, 2015) - Many Canadians associate rewards with credit cards and don't take advantage of those debit cards that offer rewards on purchases. To highlight its portfolio of SCENE, cash back and NHL debit card offerings and ensure Canadians don't miss out on great rewards on everyday purchases, Scotiabank has launched the "Summer of Debit Rewards" in a targeted marketing campaign.

The new campaign asks Canadians whether they are being rewarded for their everyday purchases. Each execution features visuals of common purchases: popcorn at the movies, lunch on the go or coffee in the morning, as a way to get Canadians thinking about their small purchases and the rewards they could be earning.

"Customers have come to expect rewards for their credit purchases, but debit rewards are still a relatively new offering and a lot of rewards are being left on the table because of the lack of awareness about these programs," said Clinton Braganza, Senior Vice President, Canadian Marketing at Scotiabank. "Scotiabank offers the most comprehensive suite of debit cards with our SCENE, cash back and NHL rewards and we wanted to present the benefits of these cards to customers in an engaging and thought-provoking way."

The heart of the campaign aims to instil the importance of getting rewarded for your everyday spending. Whether it's movies, cash back or moments, there is a card for everyone.
