Scotiabank is giving away thousands of free Presto cards in Toronto today

For the second time this month, Scotiabank is giving away thousands of free Presto cards pre-loaded. 

1,000 cards will be given out at Spadina, Wellesley, Kipling, Finch, Eglinton, Don Mills, and Kennedy subway stations. The cards given away at these locations will be loaded with $6.

Wellesley is a new option, replacing College Station, which was a bit chaotic last time.

750 cards will be handed out at Oakville, Mimico, Pickering, and Scarborough GO Stations, each with $8. 

The promotion is to advertise the new name of the ACC: Scotiabank Arena. The company is helping to get fans to the Toronto Raptors home opener tonight, partnering with Presto to do it. 

The giveaways start at 4 p.m. and continue until the cards run out. Lines started pretty early last time, so be prepared.
