Banks in Nova Scotia are expected to be among the first businesses to receive payments from a new mobile banking app, and the first to begin charging customers for loyalty.
Banks in Nova St John are being given an incentive to use the new service by the Nova Scotia Bank of Commerce, which is offering up to $5,000 worth of rewards for those who spend $1,000 on a single credit card within the first six months.
The new service, which will be offered to banks in all regions of the province, is an extension of a similar program launched last year.
Banking and financial services have been the top areas of growth for Canada’s banks, and Nova Scotia is set to become the fifth Canadian province to introduce the new mobile payment program.
The program will help bolster the province’s credit rating.
The banks will receive a $5-per-day bonus for every $1 spent in the first year, which could increase to as much as $25,000 in the next three years.
This is expected to add another $25 million in annual revenue for the province.
The rewards will also be available to other Nova Scotia businesses, including small businesses, independent businesses, small businesses with annual revenues of $5 million or less, and small businesses operating under $5.5 million in revenue.
“The bank is offering its employees the opportunity to get a kick in the ass and be part of a real-world benefit,” said Ian McCollum, chief operating officer for the bank, in a statement.
“We’re excited to be offering this opportunity to our employees who are looking for more ways to spend their hard-earned money and help us continue to grow and meet our customers’ needs.”
Banks are the best places to do business in Nova Scotia, and we’re committed to giving our employees a chance to be a part of this opportunity.
“Nova Scotia Bank has been working with the Nova Scotian Credit Union to help businesses create loyalty programs.
The bank will also offer a $10,000 bonus for each $1 in spending in the six months following the launch of the loyalty program.BANKS IN NORTH CAROLINA BANKS BANK ACCOUNTS IN NORTHERN CAROLINE:The Northern Carole Banks, which operates in Halifax, and in southern parts of the state, are also eligible to receive rewards.
