Little details that matter

Legal disclaimers

1. Bank account with chequing privileges. Some services such as statements by mail are not included.

2. Subject to credit approval by National Bank of Canada. Certain conditions apply.

3. Subject to credit approval by National Bank. The $792 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: a The TotalTM package or equivalent (The TotalTM package is available for a monthly cost of $16 to full-time post-secondary students between the ages of 18 and 24 years old; other accounts 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 TotalTM package (annual savings of $192), plus an annual 2.00% rate discount for the Student Line of Credit (annual savings of $600). These savings represent the difference between what a client with the offer and a client without it would pay. Some conditions apply. Potential savings may not reflect the actual net savings that you will receive; this amount will vary based on your financial situation.
