Legal notes

 

1 Subject to credit approval by National Bank. The package constitutes a benefit granted to holders of a National Bank Platinum, World Mastercard®, or World Elite® Mastercard® credit card.  As an example, a package holder can potentially save up to $2,336.50 per year. This figure is based on the typical profile of a package holder who has the following: a banking package equivalent to the Virtuoso® 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 Virtuoso® package (annual savings of $299), plus an annual 1.00% discount on the All-In-One Banking line of credit rate (annual savings of $1,500), plus an annual 2.75% discount on the personal line of credit rate (annual savings of $687.50), 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 a package holder might have and what a package holder might have. Some eligibility requirements apply; for more details, go to nbc.ca/healthcare-professional. These potential savings may not match your net savings, as they vary according to your financial situation.

Grace period: No interest will be charged on the purchases made during the month if the balance is paid in full within twenty-one (21) days of the date of the statement. This grace period does not apply to cash advances and balance transfers. Minimum payment:Your minimum payment will correspond to 3% of your account balance plus any amount already due or $10, whichever amount is higher. If your account balance is lower than $10, you must pay the entire balance. If you exceed your credit limit, the amount of the minimum payment will be the highest of the following amounts: (a) 3% of the account balance or (b) the amount of the overlimit. Account statement: a statement of account is sent on a monthly basis.

The savings were calculated as follows: no monthly transaction fees included in the ClickStudent® program (annual savings of $33), plus an annual 2.00% discount on the Student Line of Credit rate (annual savings of $600). These discounts represent the difference between what a client who is not a package holder might have and what a package holder might have. Some eligibility requirements apply; for more details, go to nbc.ca/health-student. These potential savings may not match your net savings, as they vary according to your financial situation.
