Seems targeted and if you were ever held an account at scotiabank, you would not qualify.

Fwiw, just got off phone with a customer service rep at Scotia. I called in because at no point during the sign up process for this account deal did they ask me to create a Plum rewards account, nor did they ask for the number of any existing Plum account I might have. So I wanted to know where they were going to deposit the 105,000 points once my account qualified.

Response: After checking with a manager, the rep said they were just going to deposit the equivalent amount in cash -- $300 -- into the new Scotia bank account I created. I got him to confirm this multiple times, and every time he said the bank would just put $300 into my account by the end of September.

Does this make any sense? Did anyone else who signed up for this deal hear something similar from Scotia?
