The ToS for the bonus $6.00 reads as just setting up autoload.
You could probably cancel it as soon as you receive the bonus.

Agreed.

Also, I don't mind having autoload setup - I mean, (I assume) it won't take any funds unless my balance is low and thus would 'auto'load as I need the funds?
To receive the extra funds as part of the Scotiabank promotion, you must add your Scotiabank Arena PRESTO card to your PRESTO Account, or create a new account for it, and set up Autoload with a Scotiabank credit card by October 31, 2018. Your $6.00 credit will be processed after November 19, 2018. Once you receive an email from PRESTO stating that your funds have been loaded, you must tap your card on any PRESTO device by December 31, 2018 to obtain the credit.
I'm confused about the bolded part - if I setup autoload but don't use anything, then it won't load, so I won't get the email stating funds have been loaded - or are they saying I'll get an email about the $6 credit.

I'm guessing I can use a balance checker vs paying a fare? I don't take transit regularly, but got this for after tokens are phased out + free card/funds.

The ToS refers to once the funds for the $6.00 bonus are loaded. You can tap the card on a balance checker to update the new balance onto your PRESTO card.

Considering how long it takes to reload a Presto card online, it'll probably be next week before I see anything on my card.

Still waiting...checking both cards on my account. Given how slow Presto is at updating anything i would guess it will be well into December before we see anything
