They're lying!
I'm a customer for long time and I've got the card through a referral...

I was also getting an error! Try with another browser.
I was having problems with chrome and it worked well on internet explorer...
CSR is just making an excuse.call again and talk to someone else. And tell them you have a referral link. So they can add that in system. In worst case. Person who reffered you wont get 5000 points. But you can get your 35,000 points afger spending 750 in first 90 days.

I have been trying to apply for this credit card through a referral link but it keeps giving me this error (tried different devices and browsers, all from home):

We have encountered something unexpected ...
Unfortunately our system has become temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.

I called Scotiabank but they were just as clueless and even told me that the referral offer is ONLY for completely new customers with no products with them. I only have a savings account there and never had a credit card with them so I find that very hard to believe. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
... different browser suggestion sounds like the best option.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will try again with another browser or maybe try it at a friend's place.

Offerring something like that is also against the rule.

Totally sounds like an excuse to end the conversation... I will try and get them to add the referral link as you suggested, thanks!

I'm having the exact same problem, and I don't have anything with Scotia. I've tried chrome and edge with no luck. Tried calling Scotia with no solution. Let me know if you figure out a solution. Thanks.

Maybe the person referring you has hit the maximum 10 referrals?

If I remember right it was 3 statements after hitting the minimum spend ($750)

Can the bonus points on two cards for the same person be combined together? Thanks.

I am not sure I haven’t received the points yet just activated the card last month, but someone else mentioned they were able to combine points.

I'm pre approved for this credit card and I've saved it to my communication center.

If I get referral link, how can I get both referral and pre approval at the same time? I don't want to get a hard credit pull by using the referral link.
