Scotiabank created a unique way to enrich the hockey experience for their customers and Canadian hockey fans alike with their new rewards credit card, the ScotiaHockey NHL VISA card.
This new offering from Scotiabank lets Canadian hockey fans personalize their credit card with their favourite NHL team’s logo and earn great hockey rewards and discounts at the same time.

The ScotiaHockey NHL Visa card has a $29 annual fee and gives cardholders the ability to earn reward points on every dollar spent. This card charges the standard 19.99 per cent interest on monthly balances and allows cardholders to redeem their points for NHL game tickets and merchandise.
Cardholders receive a special signing bonus of 3,000 points with their first purchase. Another benefit is the 20 per cent discount when shopping at the NHL’s online store, and 5x bonus points plus free skate sharpening at Sport Chek.
Here’s how customers can use their signing bonus and points for some great, quick rewards:
- 3,250 points gets you a $25 gift card for Shop.Canada.NHL.com; 5,000 points gets you a team t-shirt.
- Expect a mid-range regular season ticket to go for around 20,000 points including taxes and shipping.
You can earn over $180 in free merchandise when you spend at least $2,000 a month on the ScotiaHockey NHL Visa card. The rewards, combined with the online discount, are a pretty good deal for most loyal hockey fans who already buy bumper stickers, jerseys and hats to show support for their favourite NHL team.
“It’s important to us to offer our customers rewards that are meaningful to their specific needs and interests,” said Mike Henry, Scotiabank Senior Vice-President. “The new ScotiaHockey NHL VISA card does this for loyal NHL fans; they can choose the team logo that goes on their card and take advantage of the rewards and benefits that are relevant to their love of hockey.”
Scotiabank has successfully launched other unique rewards programs, including the Scotia Moneyback account and the SCENE card, an entertainment rewards program for movie-goers that works in partnership with Cineplex. Over one million customers use the SCENE card, and Scotiabank looks to duplicate that success with the launch of new NHL VISA card.
Canadian hockey fans can apply for the ScotiaHockey NHL VISA card and start enjoying its benefits by visiting a local Scotiabank branch.
