Our Review

If you're looking for a no fee, no hassle credit card that will let you earn cash back, the Scotiabank Momentum No-Fee Visa is a credit card that will check off all of those boxes for you.

This card from Scotiabank lets you earn 1% cash back on all purchases at gas stations, grocery stores, drug stores, and even recurring bill payments, as well as 0.5% on all other purchases – not bad for a no fee card.

This card has an edge on its competitors, by offering new cardholders an introductory interest rate on purchases. For the first 6 month, you will only be charged 7.99% interest on any purchases made. So, if you have a big purchase coming up, and you won't be able to pay it all off in one month, this feature alone could be enough to choose this card.

Another nice fringe benefit is that it gives you up to 20% off on AVIS car rentals.

What's more? You can add secondary card holders for free – and you'll see your rewards add up even faster.

The downside? This card doesn't include any insurance coverage.

The creditcardGenius algorithm calculates an estimated dollar value for all rewards and bonuses by using a typical point value a person can realistically achieve by redeeming their rewards in a reasonably optimized way. The "Welcome Bonus" is the dollar value obtained by combining all one-time bonuses available to new cardholders within the first year. To qualify for the full bonus you may need to make purchases, meet minimum spending requirements, or complete special actions. Terms and conditions apply.
