Hit the Road with the Scotiabank GM Visa Cards

When I got my second car in my early twenties, the first thing I did was take a road trip. The freedom, the adventure, and really just owning a car that I wasn’t embarassed to be seen in was the greatest feeling in the world.

At the time I also wanted to buy something better than what I ended up getting, but it just wasn’t possible as it would have been out of my price range.  But what if there was a way to save up for your next car purchase without even having to put money away? What if you could save money for a car by actually spending money? Money you would spend anyway as part of your daily life? Well, now you can.

Last month Scotiabank and General Motors of Canada launched the new Scotiabank® GM®* VISA* Cards, marking the expansion of a strategic partnership with a suite of credit cards designed to put customers in the driver’s seat of their choice of a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac.

With the new Scotiabank® GM®* VISA* Card it so easy to earn, or essentially save money, towards a fabulous set of wheels from any of the above auto makers. Customers can earn five per cent in GM Earnings on the first $5,000 of net purchases annually, and two per cent thereafter with no limits on earnings and no annual fee. If you’re a bit more of a high roller, with the new Scotiabank® GM®* VISA Infinite* Card, you can earn five per cent in GM Earnings on the first $10,000 of net purchases annually, and two per cent thereafter with no limits on earnings for a low annual fee of $79.


Customers can track their earnings at www.gmcard.ca and through their monthly statement. Easy to Redeem GM Earnings have no redemption limits and never expire for cardholders. One GM Earning dollar is equal to one dollar toward the purchase price or lease down payment of any eligible new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac.

So our question to you is, where would you go in your new GM wheels? Would you head east to Montreal, then keep on driving until you head out to the east coast? Or maybe you would take the adventure into the US, maybe head westward to California in search of warmer weather?

And what car would you want to take that trip in?

I’ve always loved the Corvette, and the Escalade, or maybe a truck is your jam, or if you are more into the sporty side of life, maybe the ATS coupe?

Well here is your chance to tell us and win! Let us know where you would go, and how you would ride in style, with so many destinations to choose from, and so many great models from GM, we want to know, what would your perfect adventure be?

    I love the Buick Encore. Id take it to Florida with my husband. Slow and steady and make fun stops along the way.

  2. nicolthepickle

    I would probably choose an Escalade so I can pack the kids and all their stuff in it, and we’d go through Quebec. It’s so beautiful out there.

  3. glogirl3

    My perfect adventure would be a trip to Newfoundland to visit family. I would love to drive there in an Escalade.

  4. MillerKrazy

    The Escalade would be packed up with a tent, camping gear, & swimsuits of course! for a cross Canada trip with the kids to Ottawa, Ontario to visit the children’s great-grandparents!  Riding in GM style & having a ton of fun adventures along the way!

  5. Robyn B

    I would make a road trip up to Northern Ontario to visit many family members and do some fishing with my kids.

  6. SFBblog

    I would love a road trip from Toronto to Vancouver. Always wanted to see the west coast of our beautiful country!

  7. PamWoodHumphrey

    My perfect drive would be the sea to sky highway to whistler to spend a romantic weekend away with hubby.  I would surprise hubby and let him choose the car model…

  8. Dixie

    This would help fund my road trip from the east coast all the way to the west coast. My littleToyota isn’t the most luxurious car but very reliable and cheap on gas 🙂

  9. HeidiPawluk

    Love, love to take a drive to the Okanagan valley, such beautiful countryside, so much to do & see.  Love to get their in a Cadillac – comfort in the drive

  10. Lori Jackson

    Hubby and I would be cruising from Ontario to Montreal in a Chevy Camero to catch a Montreal Canadians game!

  11. neutkidz

    my perfect road trip would be across canada i want to see the west  and the east coast of Canada ..i would drive in style in a GM seirra quad cab truck

  12. Sara Lima

    I would probably take a road trip out to Wine Country, here in BC.  It’s so beautiful!
    In the summer, I’d trust the (what surely must be!) top notch AC in the CTS-V SEDAN to keep my fiance and I cool; and my fiance feeling large and in charge with all those horses!  In the winter, I’d put my faith in the superior handling and brakes to keep us safe on those winding roads, no matter what mother nature threw at us.
    I’d top it all off with a stay at the exquisite Burrowing Owl Resort.
    Hey – a good girl can dream, can’t she? 🙂

    I would drive through the Rockies and enjoy photographing the small waterfalls.  We would hike and breath the clean fresh air.  The Escalade would provide us with family transportation.

  14. IuliaZwicker

    I would go west! I’ve always wanted to drive up the West Coast and I know that the Corvette would be the perfect car for that drive!
