RateSupermarket.ca's Review

The SCENE® VISA Card is another Scotiabank credit card aimed at students, and it's a great credit card for those looking to build or establish credit, learn the value of smart spending, and enjoy free movies. For no annual fee, cardholders can enjoy 2,000 welcome bonus points (enough for two free movies), 1 SCENE point for every $1 spent on all purchases, and 5 SCENE points for every $1 spent at participating Cineplex Entertainment theatres or online at cineplex.com.

 

This card really is designed for movie lovers, though - points can only be redeemed for movies and select entertainment rewards, so unless you're an avid moviegoer, you're probably better off with a credit card whose points or cash back can be applied to whatever you choose. Plus, one free movie is $1,000 worth of regular purchases, or $200 in Cineplex purchases.
