Useful information

The annual fee and fixed annual interest rate are subject to change with 30 days' notice. Emergency Health Care, Baggage and Trip Cancellation coverages are underwritten by Desjardins Financial Security Life Assurance Company. An insurance policy specifying all terms and conditions will be provided upon enrolment for the card. If you'll be taking a longer trip, you must take out extended coverage with the same insurer to get your free days of coverage. Some conditions and restrictions apply.

You have 21 days from the date the monthly statement is issued to pay the full balance on your account without interest, except on cash advances. The minimum payment is 5% of the following: your outstanding balance, interest on purchases, monthly installments that were not paid by the due date for the previous period, regular purchases and cash advances from the current statement period, plus interest on cash advances. This amount will also include any other amounts due under your credit card contract. Here are some examples of applicable interest for a 30-day billing cycle: If the regular annual interest rate is 19.9% and your average daily outstanding balance is $100, you'd be charged $1.64 in interest. If it's $500, you'd be charged $8.18 in interest, and if it's $1,000 you'd be charged $16.36 in interest. BONUSDOLLARS are calculated as a percentage of the purchases made with the card. Merchandise returns, cash advances, equal payment cash advances, RRSP cash advances, promotional and regular cheques, in-store Accord D financing, interest charges, purchases of foreign currency, electronic funds transfers, money orders and any type of purchase made in a casino do not earn BONUSDOLLARS. To earn the rate in each category, eligible purchases must be made with merchants assigned to that category. Categories are assigned based on merchant category codes (MCC) set by the Visa and Mastercard payment networks. The payment networks assign each merchant to one MCC, even if they offer a variety of products and services. For example, gas stations, grocery stores and drug stores all sell several different products, but all purchases from these merchants—regardless of the type of product—are always categorized under the merchant's MCC. Desjardins doesn't control the merchant categories that Visa and Mastercard set. Depending on the card, earning categories may include: 1) Travel: airlines, airports, car rental companies, hotels/motels and resorts, passenger railways, cruise lines, travel agencies, timeshares, trailer parks and campgrounds, etc. (codes 3000 to 4000, 4112, 4411, 4511, 4582, 4722, 4723, 5962, 7011, 7012, 7033, 7512, 7519); 2) Alternative transportation: commuter passenger transportation (local and suburban), taxis, limousines, buses and public charging stations (codes 4111, 4131, 4121, 4789, 5552); 3) Entertainment: theatrical productions, ticket agencies, bands (concerts), orchestras, tourist attractions and exhibits, movie theatres, amusement parks, carnivals, circuses, zoos, aquariums, sporting events, etc. (codes 7922, 7929, 7991, 7832, 7996, 7998, 7941); 4) Restaurants: restaurants, including fast-food restaurants (codes 5812, 5814); 5) Groceries: grocery stores, supermarkets, butchers, frozen food retailers, fish sellers, bakeries, convenience stores and miscellaneous food stores (codes 5411, 5422, 5462, 5499). Desjardins cannot guarantee the category set for each merchant or that the merchant you purchase from has the eligible MCC. Desjardins can only award rewards or cash back on eligible purchases based on the merchant's MCC. Rewards and cash back earned are subject to certain conditions. Coverage applies to cardholders, their spouse and dependent children. This coverage is offered by Desjardins Financial Security and applies to people ages 75 and under. Discount applies only to base rate (time and distance travelled). All taxes, tax reimbursement, surcharges and optional service charges, such as refueling, as well as all other charges, are not included.
