I just received a priority pass card in the mail with an expiry of 2020. My BMO elite card expires 4/18. Will the lounges start charging me after 4/18 if I don't renew the BMO elite?
I love my Koodo account.

Your membership is only for 1 year, although three card expires in 3 years. PP just assumes you are going to renew so they don't have to send you a new card every year (which they actually used to do lol)

Just got this offer, BMO sure skimping on their reward offers! (Used to be spend X get extra X points, now it's just spend X get 50%X points)

so i used to have a BMO WE MC and cancelled it. (maybe 8-10 months ago). i just phoned Priority Pass and they said i still have my 4 passes left. no mention of it being cancelled. will i have any problems at the airport if i try use them. meaning, will they ask me to show my BMO MC or anything? Or will they ask for any CC as a deposit (in case)?

just wondering

They will ask for your PP card to swipe (or scan your pp pass on your phone). They will not ask for your BMO card.

Applied online. Got an error message that said I needed to visit a branch. Visited branch to apply again. Later find out that I was already approved via online application. Way to waste my time, BMO.

How to waive the annual fee for primary cardholder:

(1) Get the BMO Premium Banking plan: $30 monthly fee or waived with $6000 MBM (AF gets refunded between 2-3 CC statements)
Apply through here: https://www.bmo.com/dst/?PID=MWSDW&MID= ... 099#/intro

(2) Get the BMO Bank Unlimited Plan: You must be a new BMO customer or do not have a BMO bank account/credit card before Jan 1st, 2017 (AF gets waived right away). Account can be opened until August 31st, 2017 (RFD Discussion thread: https://forums.redflagdeals.com/bmo-fre ... y-2085669/)
Apply through here: https://www.bmo.com/main/personal/bank- ... B4-MGBMO14

(3) At stated in the topic, the card is currently first year free if you apply by Nov 30th, 2017 but it seems to apply only to "new" cardholders:
Thanks angel_wing !

Q:

1. How do they verify $2100 spend on other credit cards, and do you know how long this should be for?

2. So I can apply for THIS 20K promo points card offer THEN get the unlimited plan after this? i.e. I will not disqualify myself from the unlimited plan if I apply for this card first?

Thanks!

(1) I guess they would ask you for other card statements to show proof of spending.

(2) No, you cannot apply for this plan if you have/had a BMO card in 2017.

Oh thanks angel_wing

So I am clear:

I do not have, nor have ever, had a BMO credit card

Are you saying that if I want the unlimited plan I should not apply for this offer?

i.e you can either get this offer or the unlimited plan?

Does this make sense?

is there anything else good about the card besides the PP and $200 credit? (and i guess FYF, without an account) and the travel insurances (which looked better than TDs Travel Infinite).
wondering if its worth the credit hit
