To qualify for the $60 you must 1) be a new client to RBC and open between July 17 and September 29, 2017: an RBC Student Banking® account with no monthly fee (you can also get $60 if you open an RBC No Limit Banking for Students® account with a monthly fee of $10.95); 2) enroll in either RBC Online Banking or RBC Mobile Banking; and 3) make one debit or credit transaction using your new student banking account before October 31, 2017. Note: The $60 cash will be deposited to your new student banking account within 6-8 weeks after opening your new account, provided you have met the eligibility criteria as outlined above and only if your account remains in good standing.
RBC Student Banking and RBC No Limit Banking for Students accounts are available to any full-time student upon presentation of student identification. Students who are 25 years of age and older must present proof of student status each year to maintain their eligibility for a student account.
Unlimited free Interac e-Transfer transactions are available in all Canadian dollar personal banking (chequing) accounts and are not counted toward the free monthly total in accounts with a limited number of free debits. In all Canadian dollar savings accounts, Interac e-Transfer transactions are $1 each, count as a Debit Transaction toward any free monthly total and carry an Excess Debit Transaction fee, if applicable. Interac e-Transfer transactions are not available in US dollar accounts.
Free Debit Transactions are calculated per Monthly Cycle. $1 is charged for each debit over the monthly limit. RBC Virtual Visa Debits, RBC Royal Bank loan payments, RBC Royal Bank mortgage payments, pre-authorized and self-serve RBC Royal Bank credit card payments and contributions to RBC investment accounts (such as GICs, Royal Mutual Funds, Registered Savings Plans, Registered Education Savings Plans, Registered Disability Savings Plans and Tax-Free Savings Accounts) from your RBC Student Banking Account are free of charge. All other Debit Transactions from this Account are counted as Debit Transactions towards the free monthly Debit Transactions included in the Account, and give rise to an Excess Debit Transaction Fee, if the total free monthly Debit Transactions are exceeded.
Royal Credit Line for Students is provided by Royal Bank of Canada and is subject to its standard lending criteria. Offer may be changed, withdrawn or extended at any time, without notice. Not available in combination with any other rate discounts, offers or promotions. Some conditions apply. The minimum payment is the accrued interest and, only if applicable, service fees that apply for that period as well as your LoanProtector insurance premium and taxes.
Interest rate for Royal Credit Line is based on the Royal Bank Prime Rate, plus or minus a premium or discount depending upon your program of study. Two Royal Credit line cheques may be written during each monthly cycle without charge. A $2.00 Royal Credit Line Cheque Fee applies to each cheque thereafter. Refer to your Student Royal Credit Line Agreement for details.
RBC Online Banking is provided by Royal Bank of Canada. RBC Mobile is operated by Royal Bank of Canada, RBC Direct Investing Inc. and RBC Dominion Securities Inc.
You will earn i) 1 RBC Rewards point for every $1.00 in Gas, Grocery, and Drug Store Purchases you make; and ii) 1 RBC Rewards point for every $2.00 on all other purchases (including pre-authorized bill payments) you make on your card. Purchases made at merchants classified by Visa’s “Merchant Category Code” (MCC) as: (i) “service stations” (MCC 5541) or “automated fuel dispensers” (MCC5542) are “Gas Purchases”; (ii) “grocery stores” (MCC 5411) are “Grocery Purchases”; and (iii) “drug stores & pharmacies” (MCC 5912) are “Drug Store Purchases” (“Eligible MCCs”). Even though some merchants may sell gas, grocery, and drug store merchandise, purchases made at these locations may not necessarily qualify as Eligible MCCs if the merchant is not classified as such by Visa. Also, you may make a purchase at a merchant that is not classified as an Eligible MCC but is located on the premises of a merchant that is classified as an Eligible MCC, in which case your purchase would not qualify as an Eligible MCC. We cannot guarantee that any merchant, operating in whole or in part as a gas, grocery or drug store, is classified as an Eligible MCC and in no event will we be liable or responsible for any claims with respect to a grocery store purchase made at a merchant that is not classified as an Eligible MCC. See sample list of eligible merchants at RBC Rewards points are earned on net purchases only; they are not earned on cash advances (balance transfers, cash-like transactions and bill payments that are not pre-authorized charges that you set up with a merchant), interest charges or fees, and credits for returns and adjustments will reduce or cancel the points earned by the amounts originally charged.
