Scotiabank customers will have access to an additional 470-plus fee-free
TORONTO, June 27, 2012 /CNW/ - Today Scotiabank announced that it will
be giving its customers fee-free ABM access at 7-Eleven® stores in
Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. This
expansion will boost the Bank's overall ABM network in Canada to 3,486,
an increase of over 15 per cent.
"Canadians rely on the convenience of their debit cards and are among
the biggest per capita users of debit services in the world," said Troy
Wright, Executive Vice-President, Retail Distribution, Canadian
Banking, Scotiabank. "To meet our customers' needs, we continue to
expand fee-free ABM access across the country, and our upcoming
expansion into 7-Eleven stores does just that by giving Scotiabank
customers access to their accounts at additional convenient locations
with extended hours."
Fee-free ABM access for Scotiabank cardholders at 7-Eleven Canada stores
is made possible by a partnership with Cardtronics, the world's largest
retail ABM owner and 7-Eleven's exclusive ABM service provider in
Canada. Customers using these machines will benefit from the same strong
security measures that are built into all Scotiabank ABMs with the
added convenience of the increased access.
Scotiabank is in the midst of expanding its ABM access in Canadian
7-Eleven stores with complete availability expected later this summer.
And, Scotiabank SCENE debit cardholders will soon see a special
limited-time promotion where SCENE points will be awarded when they
make ABM withdrawals at Canadian 7-Eleven stores. Updates on the
locations of newly available fee-free ABMs can be accessed with the Scotiabank ABM Locator tool at scotiabank.com.
