Received a target letter recently for $300 from Scotia. They make it more difficult. They added a requirement to basically stay in 12 months while meeting all pre-authorized transactions every month. Meh!

"All pre‑authorized transactions must clear the Eligible Account at least once per month for twelve (12) consecutive months in order to qualify."

Has anyone received the 5000 scene points related to this offer? This offer had two components, $300 bonus AND 5000 scene points or 5000 scotia rewards points (depending on which version of bank card you picked). I see everyone talking about fighting for the $300, but how about the 5000 scene points (or the 5000 scotia rewards points)?

I was targeted and I actually switched payroll to this account so I should definitely be eligible (there is no uncertainty about what is considered pre-authorized debit such as Tangerine or PayTM or such), yet I didn't receive either $300 or 5000 scene points. Signs...

I got my $300! My next billing cycle is tomorrow so i'm hit with an extra monthly charge, which is a little bad luck right as when i was going to cancel but oh well.

- Sent multiple messages in online banking message center but they were useless
- Sent an email to the President, then a second one asking for an update after about a week of silence
- Received a reply saying they're looking into it, they're heavily backlogged
- Received a call just now which i missed but i logged into my account and saw the $300 credited

Highly recommend sending an email to the President if you haven't already.
I got the extra monthly charge re-credited because I told them it was their fault for the delay past Oct.

Is there anyway to close account over the phone instead of going to branch?
Last time took me an hour to explain the missing $300 bonus, hate to go back again.

Would you mind sharing the email address? I will do the same for getting my offer honored. Scotiabank does not care about their customers' complaints at all. Thanks!
