We are taking two banks from the banking sector for the analysis of recognizing which bank is high as compared to the lower one. The two banks are:
Bank of Montreal.
We have taken Scotia Bank as higher one and Bank of Montreal as lower one because as follows:
The Scotia Bank has teamed up with Cineplex Entertainment and created a loyalty reward program called as Scene.

A Scene Debit card was launched in early May which gives people points when they are used.
Whereas, The Bank of Montreal does not offer any kind of this facility to its customers.
