The student offer gives you the choice between taking the Unlimited plan at no cost (a value of $13.95/month) or taking the Unlimited Plus plan and paying only the $8.00 difference between the two plan values. To get this offer, you must go to your caisse or call 1-800-CAISSES (1-800-224-7737). You must also be able to prove that you meet the eligibility requirements. No matter which plan you select, an additional fee of $1.50, $3 or $5 will apply to any withdrawals made from non-Desjardins ATMs affiliated with the Interac® and Plus* networks. Some providers charge additional fees to use their ATMs. They must notify you via an on-screen message before processing the transaction, so you can choose to cancel the transaction. These fees are added to the withdrawal amount. To see the terms and conditions for the various service charges, go to desjardins.com/plans.

2 Desjardins conducts a credit risk assessment before issuing credit cards and setting credit limits. Speak with an advisor to see whether you're eligible for this offer. Only available to persons who have reached the age of majority. Other conditions apply.
