Scene+ Rewards: Earn and Redeem a Maximum Number of Points

Scene+ is constantly evolving, and its wide range of choices makes it one of Canada’s favourite rewards programs. Scotiabank, Cineplex Entertainment and Empire allow you to earn points quickly, according to your needs and tastes. As a member of the Scene+ program, you can earn points using either your Scene+ card or a Scotiabank credit card.

How do I register?

It’s easy! If you’re not already a loyal member of the Scene+ program, you can register directly on the website. Simply enter your e-mail address, create a password and provide a few additional details. And that’s it!

In addition to being fast and free, you can download the membership card directly on the Scene+ application. You can also request a physical card free of charge.

You can also add the Scene+ card to your Apple wallet. When you receive the e-mail containing the card or open the Scene+ application, simply select the “Add to Apple Wallet” option. Then follow on-screen instructions.

How do I earn Scene+ points?

First of all, the classic way to accumulate points is by using a Scotiabank card. Scene+ points are quickly earned and, in some cases, multiplied. If you don’t want a new credit card, simply opt for the Scene+ membership card, which you’ll need to scan at checkout.

You can earn points in the following categories: movies (Cineplex), travel, grocery (including Sobeys), as well as at partner stores and through personalized offers (retail, restaurants, pharmacies, etc.). At grocery stores, you earn points based on personalized offers only. At Cineplex and the Cineplex Store, entertainment fans will earn 5 points for every dollar spent on tickets. You’ll also earn five points on food and beverage purchases. As for The Rec Room and Playdium locations, you’ll earn 1 point for every dollar spent. Scène+ also offers 50 points for every $50 spent at Home Hardware stores and 1 point for every $3 spent at select restaurants (Harvey’s, Swiss Chalet, East Side Mario’s, Montana’s BBQ & Bar, Bier Markt, and Kelsey’s Original Roadhouse).

Finally, let’s take the nomads by storm. Scene+ gives you the chance to travel and be rewarded! You’ll earn 3 points for every dollar spent on hotel stays and car rentals with Scene+ Travel. In fact, certain trip purchases let you earn Scene+ points, even when you decide to pay in full with points.

When you shop with Rakuten, you’ll earn points and up to a 20% discount. This latter offer depends, however, on the qualifying offers that are available.

How to maximize points?

Thanks to the flexibility of Scene+, you and all our members can enjoy the benefits of the program on a regular basis. Of course, you must remember to make your purchases at a partner store or on the Scene+ app. That way, you’re sure to have enough points to earn the reward of your choice.

Another way to maximize your points is to share your account with a family member. By providing them with your Scene+ card number, they can earn points every time they visit one of the program’s partners or affiliates, either in person or online. And when you have a Scotiabank credit card, you’re sure to maximize your points.

How to redeem points?

Good news for you! Unlike many loyalty programs, Scene+ points maintain a considerably constant redemption value. And that’s true no matter how you choose to redeem them.

When it comes to entertainment, you can redeem 100 points for $1 off a movie ticket, or $1 off a rental or movie purchase at the Cineplex Store. For food and beverages, 500 points get you $5 off.

As for the Rec Room and Playdium locations, when you redeem 500 points, you receive a $5 discount on food, music, movie tickets, chips, snacks and activities at Playdium. Not a bad deal at all!

As for food and beverage, as a member, you can exchange 500 points for a $5 discount. This discount applies to food and, in some provinces, to alcoholic beverages. At grocery stores, you can redeem 1,000 points for a $10 deduction from your balance. At Home Hardware, redeem 1,000 Scene+ points for $10 off your purchase.

Moreover, when you access the Scene+ Apple or Best Buy store, the program lets you redeem your points for products found there. In fact, you can redeem your points for gift cards from over 60 brands and retailers.

Finally, you can redeem points for a credit on your Scotiabank account. By redeeming your points, you’ll receive cash on your eligible debit or credit card. For travel, you can book with the supplier of your choice and, in your account, use your Scene+ points to pay for a portion of the cost with the Pay for Travel with Points option.

Use Scene+ points to travel

The Scene+ program allows you to redeem 100 points per dollar spent when you book with Scene+ Travel. Book your trip using Scene+ Travel by Expedia to redeem your points directly. You can also redeem points for travel. If you don’t have enough points, you can use them to pay for part of your trip.

What’s more, by booking your trip this way, you earn 3 points for every dollar spent on hotel nights and car rentals. You then exchange your points in 100-point increments for $1 on your next getaway.

Expiration of the points

In the event that your account remains inactive for up to 24 consecutive months, your Scene+ account will be cancelled. However, an exception applies when you have a Scotiabank card.
