Some interesting comments to add here about the interest rate structure. BNS structures its interest rates for this card around an alpha numbering system. “A” clients are the best clients, getting a rate of 2.99 points above prime; “B” clients would pay 3.99 points above prime and “C” clients would pay 4.99 above prime. However, it is hard to see how lower credit score individuals would still qualify for this card.

It is hard to understand, too, why this card isn’t more appreciated in the marketplace. First, it is likely the only card other than the RBC Private Banking Infinite Visa card that has a minimum limit of $20 000 dollars; however, unlike the RBC card, there is no annual fee. Yet it still has many of the basic warranty protection items found on other cards. Plus, if you don’t carry a balance, and charge items with the Visa card, not the line of credit cheques, you don’t get charged interest for 21 days! In other words, its like having a line of credit but without paying any interest charges if paid on time – any normal line of credit will always charge you a fee from the moment you withdraw money from the credit product.

There are other points however. There is little doubt that 3 points above prime is not the best rate on the market for lines of credit. In fact, my credit union offers me 1 point above prime but on a much smaller loan product. Others would likely pay that same rate if the loan were secured by money or real estate. So, it might well be a good product for those who don’t have money or real estate to use as an asset to back the liability – or who don’t carry a balance all the time.

In any event, it is a great product and unique on the market.
