RateSupermarket.ca's Review

The L'earn® VISA card from Scotiabank is an excellent credit card option for students looking to build their credit while earning rewards. The card is designed so that the more students spend, they more they earn - which can be a bit of a dangerous game for those new to the credit card game. It's important to remember that a very small percentage of cash back savings is not worth a pile of credit card debt, especially early on in life.

 

This being said, the L'earn® VISA card can help introduce students to smart spending, by offering a Moneyback reward program with no annual fee. A credit card is also a great way for students to build credit while their earnings are still low.

 

On the first $500, you earn 0.25% cash back; on the next $500, 0.50% cash back; and on any amount over $1,000, you earn 1.00% cash back. So, as an example, if you were to put all your spending on your card (and pay it off in full each month), and spent just over $200 a week on average over the course of a year (think of groceries, books, transportation, etc), you'd receive a Moneyback reward of just over $100 that year. You can even use the card to pay bills; think of it almost as a way to get a discount on bills you would have to pay anyway.
