The following terms and conditions are supplemental to the Newt Card Terms and Conditions which can be downloaded. The Newt Card Terms and Conditions will prevail over any conflict or inconsistency with this Agreement.
By registering for a NEWT Account, you will be entitled to receive a free Newt Card, which can be upgraded to a unique design for an additional cost, as more particularly set out in the Newt Card Terms and Conditions. The Newt Card is currently only available for order through the iOS Newt App to Newt Members with an invite, that have passed identity verification and have an account with one of the supported Canadian banks found here. The Newt Card is intended forindividual use only and is not suited for business use. Newt reserves the right to terminate or suspend your Newt Card for any reason, including if you are using the card for business purposes.
In order to receive your free Newt Card, you must link your bank account using the Link Bank feature in your NEWT Account.
If you load your Newt Card using Interac e-Transfer, then Newt will use commercially reasonable efforts to process your Interac e-Transfer in as little as 30 minutes of Newt receiving funds from your financial institution. In the event of heavy volume of transactions, it could take up to one day to process and fund. Newt reserves the right to reject or hold your Interac e-Transfer for any reason including if the name on your bank account does not match the name in your NEWT Account or if you have not otherwise followed the funding instructions set out in the Newt Card dashboard, including the applicable limits. Newt will not charge a fee for you to load your Newt Card using Interac e-Transfer, however your financial institution may charge fees for using Interac e-Transfer. Newt will not be liable for any fees or charges that youhave paid or may be required to pay your financial institution to load your Newt Card using Interac e-Transfer or as a result of Newt rejecting your Interac e-Transfer.
Funding your Newt Card using is instant and the funds will appear in your Newt Card immediately, however, it generally takes up to four business days for the funds to be debited from your bank account. If you are not eligible to use, it will generally take up to four business days for the funds to be debited from your bank account and to appear in your Newt Card. You must have adequate funds in your bank account for it to be successfully transferred to your Newt Card. If the transfer of the funds from your bank account to your Newt Card fails for any reason (a “Failed Transfer”), we will automatically charge you a non-sufficient funds fee of $25.00 (the “NSF Fee”) and, if you used to fund your Newt Card, deduct an amount equal to the Failed Transfer from your Newt Card. This may result in your Newt Card going into a negative balance and you will be precluded from using your Newt Card until you reimburse us for the Failed Transfer, if applicable, and pay the NSF Fee. If you to fund your NewtCard and you fail to reimburse us for the Failed Transfer and pay the NSF Fee within 72 hours of us notifying you of the Failed Transfer (through a Newt Notification or otherwise), then we will separately debit your bank account for the amount of the Failed Transfer and the applicable NSF Fee in accordance with your PAD Agreement. If this second debit fails for any reason, your Newt Card will be in collections and sent to our Payment Services department. Your bank may also charge you a non-sufficient funds fee in connection with the Failed Transfer.
If you take out a Newt Money loan or a Partner Loan, you may have the option to request that the proceeds of your Newt Money loan be added to your Newt Card. Please refer to your loan agreement for details.
