Well isn’t that just annoying.
I signed up for a Scene Visa (via Scotia Bank) over the phone a few weeks ago. Last weekend I went into a local branch to sign some papers. I’ve used it once already just to get my bonus points being 4 free movies.
I’m not usually one to wait for my paper statement to come in to see how much I owe on a CreditCard, I like knowing in advance how much I owe. Being the keener that I am, I went to Scotia OnLine (who spells online like that? Oh wait, they do) Financial Services site. Couldn’t enter my visa number online as I didn’t have an online password. I called their toll free number and tried entering it through there. In a frustrated state of mind I pressed the number zero an infinite number of times, because that always works to get a human… right? Let’s hope “this called pressed the #0 sixteen times” doesn’t appear on their screen so they already know I’m an impatient person.
I kindly told them my issue. Their response was that I didn’t have any other accounts with Scotia Bank therefor I cannot view my Visa statement like I can with “CIBC” (I don’t deal with CIBC, they just said that as I suppose CIBC let’s you do it that way). I mean, c’mon. I canceled my TD Visa to go with Scotia Bank and they don’t have something that I can view online to see how much I owe? How lame is that? I’ve already set up my bill payment through my bank, so I can physically pay them online. Just not view how much. WASTE OF PAPER! lol.
I tell ya. If I didn’t already cancel my TD Visa, I would’ve taken those four free movie passes and used them up. Canceled the credit card and go back to TD.
What a stupid stupid setup.
Oh p.s: don’t forget to pop by here tomorrow. I have a giveaway coming up – it may or may not include some cute peacock alley bedding.
