Visa SavingsEdge® Terms and Conditions
The Visa SavingsEdge program is a discount program ("Program") offered by Visa Canada Corporation ("Visa", "we" and "us") to each eligible corporation, limited liability company, not-for-profit organizations, partnership and sole proprietor ("Business") that holds an eligible Visa Business Credit Card, Visa Business Debit Card and Visa Infinite Business credit card (each, a "Visa Business Card" and "Card") whose enrollment in the program is accepted by Visa. Visa Business prepaid cards (including, without limitation, Visa Gift Cards), are not eligible for participation in the Program.
These terms and conditions ("Terms and Conditions") apply both to the Business and each individual who uses a Card through the Business ("Cardholder" and "you"). Each Cardholder must also be authorized to use the Visa Business Card by the financial institution issuing such Card ("Issuer") pursuant to the payment card agreement ("Card Agreement") between the Business and the Issuer. The Business shall be jointly and severally responsible for any participation in the Program by Cardholders. By being enrolled or participating in the Program, the Business and each Cardholder is bound by these Terms and Conditions, as applicable to each as provided herein.
Each Cardholder must sign up and be accepted by Visa as a participant in the Program in order to be eligible for discounts. Alternatively, the Business can directly enroll Cardholders and Cards in the Program. Under the Program, Cardholders will receive discounts from merchants participating in the Program ("Merchant") each time such Cardholder uses an eligible Visa Business Card that is enrolled in the Program to purchase qualifying goods or services from a Merchant pursuant to an active discount offered by such Merchant (each, a "Discount Offer"), and that transaction is processed or submitted through the Visa payment system (each, a "Qualifying Purchase," as more fully described below). The Card Agreement will continue to govern use of the Visa Business Card(s) by the Business and Cardholders. In the event of a conflict between the Card Agreement and these Terms and Conditions, the Card Agreement will govern, except that these Terms and Conditions will govern and control with respect to all matters relating to the Program. These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein, without reference to its conflict of laws provisions. The Business and each Cardholder agree that any dispute arising from or in connection with these Terms and Conditions and/or the Program shall be resolved exclusively in the applicable courts located in Toronto, Ontario.
The Program is intended to enhance your shopping experience with features and functionality that tracks your purchases, through secure and legal means, from all Merchants and delivers customized offers and messages to one or more channels of communication and platforms you select, based on one or more of the triggers described below and other triggers you may agree to. The number of triggered offers and promotional messages may vary depending on a number of factors, including the information you provided when you enrolled in the Program, your transaction activity, selected triggers and participating Merchants' choice as it relates to the type and number of offers to make available or messages to send and/or the type of Card you have. In addition to the channels of communication and platforms currently available for receiving offers and messages from Visa, we may offer, and you may opt-in to, additional channels and platforms in the future.
Each time you make a purchase with your enrolled Visa Business Card, details regarding your transactions on your enrolled Visa Business Card may be monitored by Visa in order to deliver to you customized offers and messages in connection with the Program. By participating in the Program and clicking "I AGREE," you understand and agree and expressly consent that your historic transaction history (up to 13 months) and future transaction history may be accessed from your enrolled Visa Business Card account, used by Visa to create a profile, and used for the purposes of providing you with offers and messages fueled by insights into your interests, purchase behavior and other relevant criteria. Visa may also use and share your information on an aggregated basis for analytics, modeling and other lawful purposes.
Changes to the Program
We have the right to modify, restrict, limit or change the Program in any way and at any time. Changes may include, but are not limited to: changing the participating Merchants; changing the specific details, requirements or qualifications of a Discount Offer or category of Card; adding or removing Discount Offers; changing the duration of any Discount Offer; and changing these Terms and Conditions. We will notify the Business and Cardholders of material changes to the Program and/or to these Terms and Conditions by notice provided on the program website at www.visasavingsedge.ca (the "Program Website"), and you should check the Program Website from time to time for such changes. We reserve the right at any time to suspend or cancel the Program and an Issuer may at any time choose to discontinue participation and eligibility of any of its Visa Business Cards in the Program. We also reserve the right to suspend or cancel any Business' and/or Cardholder's enrollment in the Program without notice unless required by applicable law, including, without limitation, where we believe you are abusing or wrongfully using the Program. Merchants may also suspend or cancel the ability of Business and/or any Cardholder to qualify for a discount for any transaction at that Merchant without notice unless required by applicable law. Failure to enforce any term of these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver.
Visa Business Cards issued in Canada by an Issuer that enables these cards to participate in the Program are eligible for enrollment. Businesses and authorized Cardholders in Canada that hold an eligible Visa Business Card and are in good standing are eligible to apply for enrollment in the Program. We reserve the right to determine in our sole discretion whether any Business or Cardholder may enroll in the Program.
To participate in the Program, you must be authorized by the Business to enroll your eligible Card in the Program and accept these Terms and Conditions on behalf of yourself and the Business. Moreover, the Business must: (a) be party to a valid Card Agreement, (b) be approved by Visa to enroll, or authorize enrollment of, one or more Visa Business Cards in the Program, (c) control Cardholder access to Visa Business Cards, and (d) agree to these Terms and Conditions. With respect to Businesses, by checking the applicable agreement box the signatory represents that he or she is an authorized signatory for the Business under the Card Agreement and that the Business agrees to these Terms and Conditions. With respect to Cardholders, by checking the applicable agreement box you represent that you are authorized to enroll the Card in the Program and that you agree to these Terms and Conditions.
In order to enroll Visa Business Cards in the Program, the Business and/or Cardholder must follow the instructions on the Program Website. Each Business can enroll up to 10 Cards, if Visa Business Card numbers are associated with the same credit or other underlying account. If there are multiple Visa Business Cards with the same card number, that Visa Business Card number may only be enrolled once. By enrolling a Visa Business Card number, or permitting a Visa Business Card to be enrolled, the Business represents that the individual enrolling that number is authorized to enroll all of the Visa Business Cards with that number. There is no cost to the Business to enroll a Visa Business Card in the Program or for Cardholders to use Cards to participate in the Program. While enrolling in the Program on the Program Website, the Business and/or each Cardholder will be required to provide an email address and select a password that must be entered in order to access the Program Website. The Business and/or Cardholder, as applicable, will receive a confirmation message to the email address provided at time of enrollment if Visa approves enrollment of the Visa Business Card(s) in the Program. The Business is responsible for ensuring and protecting the security of passwords and for any activity conducted at the Program Website through its email addresses and associated passwords.
The enrolled Business and/or participating Cardholders will receive a discount at participating Merchants in three ways: 1) Everyday Savings Offers; 2) Instant Savings Offers; and 3) Select US Merchant Offers.
Discounts apply only to qualifying purchases that are in full compliance with the terms of the retailer's discount offer. A “qualifying purchase” is defined as any point-of-sale purchase (including any Visa payWave purchase), internet, phone or mail order purchase made with a Visa Business Card enrolled in the Visa SavingsEdge program, and processed through the VisaNet payment system. Visa reserves the right to determine whether or not any Visa Business Card transaction is a qualifying purchase.
Each Discount Offer will be subject to additional terms and conditions specific to the Discount Offer. These terms and conditions may address such matters as the level of discount for the Discount Offer, expiration date of the Discount Offer, the purchase or other requirements of the Discount Offer, or any other limitations or restrictions in connection with the Discount Offer. You cannot qualify for a Discount Offer once the Discount Offer is removed from the Program. Participating Merchants may offer discounts on purchases of goods or services at their physical locations in Canada and/or in the United States, on their participating websites or by telephone or mail orders. The level of any discount offered and other terms and conditions applicable to such Discount Offer are determined by us and the Merchant in our respective sole discretions. Please refer to the Program Website for additional Discount Offer terms and conditions and Program information.
Discount Offers cannot be applied to purchases made prior to successful enrollment in the Program and such purchases are not Qualifying Purchases. The Qualifying Purchase is calculated on the total purchase amount, in one transaction, including tax, and rounded up or down to the nearest whole dollar amount. Visa does not determine and is not responsible for Merchants correctly processing a transaction.
Discount Offers may be subject to availability. Discount Offers are also subject to any applicable law or regulation that may restrict or prohibit certain sales, including, without limitation, the sale of goods and services in certain restricted categories. Businesses, Cardholders and the applicable Merchant are each responsible for compliance with all laws related to the Discount Offer, including the payment and collection of any federal, provincial or local taxes.
Once an eligible Visa Business Card is enrolled in the Program the discount the Business or Cardholder receives on the Everyday Savings offers from a Qualifying Purchase will be automatically credited to the enrolled eligible Visa Business Card account statement. Everyday Savings Offer credits will not appear on the receipt at the participating Merchant's point of sale. Everyday Savings Offer credits will be posted to the enrolled eligible Cardholder statement for each Qualifying Purchase and will be posted on a future statement. A posted Everyday Savings Offer credit may be reversed in Visa's sole discretion for any returns, adjustments, or chargebacks relating to a Qualifying Purchase. The reversal of any Everyday Savings Offer credit will appear on a future Card statement.
Instant Savings offers will require Cardholders to enter a promotion code prior to making a purchase in order to receive the Discount Offer prior to checking out on the Merchant’s website.
You are not eligible to receive any Discount Offers and/or statement credits while your Visa Business Card account is not in good standing. Any transactions entered into by the Business or a Cardholder during such time will not be deemed a Qualifying Purchase and forfeited from Program eligibility.
Visa's decisions will be final and binding on all matters relating to this Program.
Select US Merchant Offers (Cross Border) program
- Eligible Cardholders enrolled in the Visa SavingsEdge Canada program will automatically be eligible to take advantage of select US merchant offers from the Visa SavingsEdge US program while shopping cross-border in the United States.
- Cardholders simply use their enrolled eligible Visa Business card at a participating Visa SavingsEdge US Merchant and make a qualifying transaction to receive a statement credit.
- A dedicated “Traveling to the US” tab on the visasavingsedge.ca website will display all the applicable Visa SavingsEdge US merchant offers and will appear as a separate tab next to the Canada “Merchant” offers.
- Visa SavingsEdge US Merchant discounts will be calculated in US Dollars.
- Where a US dollar credit is applied to a Canadian dollar Visa Business card, the credit is converted at the foreign currency conversion rate established by Visa in effect on the date the credit is posted to your Account.

A Business may also cancel the participation of any Cardholder within its organization in the Program at any time by visiting the Program Website. Revoked statement credits based on returns, adjustments, or chargebacks with respect to a Qualifying Purchase made on an enrolled Visa Business Card may be completed, in Visa's sole discretion, after the cancellation of the Business' enrollment, or a Cardholder's participation, in the Program. If a Business or Cardholder closes the Visa Business Card enrolled in the Program, the Cardholder and the Visa Business Card will be automatically removed from the Program, as well.
Lost, Stolen or Damaged Cards
If a Visa Business Card enrolled in the Program is lost, stolen or damaged, call your Issuer as soon as possible. Please be aware that the replacement card may have a different Card number. You will be eligible for the Discount Offers even if an enrolled Visa Business Card is lost, stolen or damaged. However, you will have to enroll the replacement Visa Business Card on the Program Website if the new replacement Card is issued by the Issuer with a different Card number. In such case, the previously enrolled Card will be removed from the Program. However, Qualifying Purchases made through unauthorized purchases from a lost or stolen Card or Card number will not be eligible for any discounts under the Program.
