  1. My advisor told me the same thing, but I told them that other advisors are giving other medical students both promotions and made her double check, and she called me back 10 minutes later and told me that I will receive both promotions so maybe try doing the same thing!
  2. Thanks! Just to be clear, you did get the $300 for opening the chequin account (once you follow the instructions etc.) and the visa passport points, but not the AMEX gold points?
  3. Yes I understand, but my advisor said that I am not eligible for the $300 and the AMEX points because I'm opening an account through a "special" student account. I am just wondering if she is unaware and if others are receiving the $300 / AMEX points, so that I can go in and let them know.
  4. Did everybody receive the $300 bonus for opening up an account with Scotia? And also the bonus points for the credit cards if you spend a certain amount within the first 3 months?
  5. I was a little bit confused with regards to who to contact for this. I have seen the list of Scotia advisors attached here on the forum, but there is only one advisor in Toronto, which is fairly far for me. I did seem to find an advisor uptown who seems to know what he is doing. I was wondering, is one week a reasonable amount of time for them to process everything and for me to access my LOC?
  6. Hey everyone! I'm new to this whole LOC thing. I called a small businesses advisor in Scotiabank to go in and talk about LOC, but the guy told me that I have to fill out a form for them to do a credit and background check (which can take 2-3 weeks), and once that is approved I can come in for a signing. He also said that depending on my credit score I may not get approved for the entire amount. Is this usually how it works? Is it true that I can't talk to an advisor for 2-3 weeks until I am approved? If not, does anybody know a good advisor in North York or Toronto in general that I can talk to? Thanks! EDIT: called another advisor and he told me to come in right away to get everything signed. He said he has had experience with medical and dental students. He said that it would take max 1 week for me to access my LOC. Just wanted to let everyone else know to be careful who you speak to!
