Scene+: How To Redeem Your Scene+ Points On Travel Purchases

To the point Step by step, here's how to use Scene+ points when you want to pay less for a trip.

How to easily earn Scene+ points

One of the most attractive options when redeeming Scene+ points is to use them to reimburse a travel expense.

Several credit cards offer Scene+ points.

But the one used for this example is the Scotiabank Gold American Express card.

What’s more, frequent Scene+ promotions and offers make earning points even easier. Stay tuned and check out our regularly updated article with all the latest promotions:

Finally, you find yourself on the long-awaited page!

Eligible travel expenses are automatically displayed. The Scene+ program is very flexible, accepting expenses for the past 12 months. In addition, a minimum balance of 5,000 Scene+ points is required to request a statement credit.

Check off the travel expense(s). For example, for the Intercontinental Chicago hotel cost of $353, I can apply all 32,041 points I have.

Since 100 points = $1 credit, this has a value of $320.41.

Bottom Line

Thanks to Scene+ points, this stay at the Intercontinental Chicago will cost me $33 net ($353 bill – $320 in Scene+ points). This is excellent!

Plus, with no conversion fee on this Scotiabank® Gold American Express® Card, I will have avoided an additional 2.5% fee on my hotel bill. This makes me doubly happy.
