1 *Subject to credit approval by National Bank. The offer constitutes a benefit granted to holders of a National Bank Platinum, World Mastercard®, or World Elite® Mastercard® credit card. As an example, an offer holder can potentially save up to $1,036 per year. This figure is based on the typical profile of an offer holder who has the following: a banking package equivalent to The Total® package, a World Elite® Mastercard® credit card, a National Bank All-In-One Banking™ mortgage line of credit with a current annual balance of $150,000, and a personal line of credit with a current annual balance of $25,000, all with a good credit rating from credit bureaus.
The savings were calculated as follows: no monthly transaction fees included in The Total® package (annual savings of $311), plus an annual 0.25% discount on the All-In-One Banking line of credit rate (annual savings of $375), plus an annual 2.00% discount on the personal line of credit rate (annual savings of $500), minus the annual fee for the World Elite® Mastercard® credit card for one year. These discounts represent the difference between what a client who is not an offer holder might have and what an offer holder might have.
