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. Three 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. Included services and fees for non-related services are listed in our Rate Guide, available in branch or at

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.

6. Subject to credit approval by National Bank. Each balance transfer must be at least $250.

7. Certain restrictions apply. Please consult the applicable rules governing reward points under Rewards plan.

8. This coverage applies to purchases and rentals charged in part to the card, except out-of-province medical/hospital insurance for which the travel arrangements need not be charged to the card, and lost or delayed luggage insurance where all transportation costs must be charged to the card. This coverage applies to the primary cardholder, his/her spouse and/or dependent children when they (spouse and/or dependent children) travel with the primary cardholder. Applicable only for 10 days of travel. Extended warranty coverage applies to most new articles purchased with the card, in Canada or abroad, as long as the manufacturer's warranty is valid in Canada. Certain conditions and restrictions apply. For more information and for details of your insurance coverage, please consult the insurance certificate associated with your card.

9. Questions relating to any commercial or criminal activity are excluded.

10. 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 CDN$ in Canada. Visit for the rate in effect.

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. As a guideline, the applicable rate for a typical Student Line of Credit with a guarantor is comprised of the prime rate + 2%. 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). Examples of credit fees calculated over a 30-day period at the applicable rate as at March 31, 2020:

     Average Balance   
$500 $3 000
Typical Student Line of Credit with guarantor $1.83 $10,97
Typical Student Line of Credit without guarantor $2,14 $12,82
Prime rate + 0.75% (3.20%) $1.32 $7.89


12. Subject to credit approval by National Bank. Transfer is possible during and after completion of studies. To maintain student benefits, the transfer of the line of credit to the National Bank must be made no later than 6 months after the end of studies. You must provide proof of attendance from your post-secondary institution located in Canada (last available proof if the transfer is at the end of your studies) and your latest transcript showing successful completion. The usual conditions for the student line of credit also apply to the transfer, with the necessary adjustments.

13.  National Bank reserves the right to terminate, without notice, the savings and other benefits on all products and services included in the banking offer, if the client closes their eligible bank account. In the event the client cancels their eligible credit card or replaces it for a credit card that is not eligible for the offer, National Bank will charge fixed monthly fees of $12.95 on the transaction accounts to enable the client to maintain their savings and other benefits in the banking offer.
