1. Subject to credit approval by National Bank. The offer is available to holders of a National Bank Platinum credit card. The $567 in annual savings is provided as an example only to illustrate what a holder could save with the offer. It is based on the profile of a client who has the following products: The Total® package or equivalent (The Total® is available for a $16 monthly fee to full-time post-secondary students between the ages of 18 and 24 years old; other accounts and offers are also available) and a student line of credit with a $30,000 limit authorized by the Bank with a guarantor.

Savings are calculated as follows: No monthly fee for transactions included in The Total® Account (annual savings of $192), plus an annual 1.25% rate discount for the Student Line of Credit (annual savings of $375). These savings represent the difference between what a client with the offer and a client without it would pay. Certain eligibility conditions apply. Potential savings may not reflect the net savings that you will receive; this amount will vary based on your financial situation.

2. Subject to credit approval by National Bank of Canada. Certain conditions apply. Two years after the card is issued, the regular annual fee in effect will automatically be charged to the account. Offer cannot be renewed.

3. A chequing account. Some services such as the passbook and paper statement by mail are not included.

4. Subject to credit approval by National Bank. Certain conditions apply. A guarantor who satisfies National Bank's criteria may be required. The annual amount is based on your personal budget needs.

5. Grace period: No interest will be charged on purchases made during the month, provided the client pays the balance in full within twenty-one (21) days of the statement date. This grace period does not apply to cash advances or balance transfers. Minimum payment: If your account balance is lower than $10, you must pay the entire balance. If you reside in the province of Quebec, your minimum payment will correspond to 5% of the credit card account balance plus any overdue payment or $10, whichever amount is higher. If you reside outside of Quebec, your minimum payment represents 2.5% of the credit card account balance plus any overdue payment or $10, whichever amount is higher. Account statement: A statement is sent monthly.

The regular rate for a line of credit is the prime rate* + 3%, which corresponds to 6.95% ( ${p1.tauxBase|percent:"true"} + 3%) as at October 25, 2018. As the applicable rate is based on the prime rate, it may fluctuate over time. No management costs. Account statements are produced monthly. Interest accrues as soon as an amount is drawn on the line of credit. Students must start repaying the principal when they have a full-time job or within 12 months of the end of their studies.

*The prime rate means the annual variable interest rate posted by National Bank, from time to time, and used by the Bank to determine the interest rates on the demand loans it grants in Canadian dollars in Canada. Consult the prime rate webpage to find out today's rate.

11. Monthly account statement. No management fees. The applicable rate for a Student Line of Credit is established by the prime rate, plus a spread, depending on if the client must provide a guarantor or not.

The applicable rate for a typical Student Line of Credit without a guarantor is comprised of the prime rate + 2.75%. Once an amount is borrowed from the line of credit, it accrues interest. The minimum monthly payment is limited to the monthly interest and life insurance premiums (as applicable).

The usual conditions for the student line of credit also apply to the transfer, with the necessary adjustments.
