Ahh ok. Thanks. I will confirm the no fee from them for first year as well. Since for some reason i didn't get any documents indicating this.
i do not believe it was indicated in the documents, anyway never hurts to ask.

My 3 yr promo is sadly coming to an end on my BMO world elite card... got the letter in the mail that I'll be charged the normal fee soon ($150 + $50/supplementary)

Has anyone successfully had them back off on the fee? I like the card, the lounge passes are handy once in a while when I'm at the airport with a delayed flight and need to kill some time.. but it would be even better if I got the fee waived!

did anyone try applying and received the 20K bonus if it was your 2nd time? I'm thinking of getting this card along with the baking plan because it offers 2% on travel (i understand $6K will have to be locked in the account to waive it) but the other cash elite card now only gives 1.75%.

It'd be nice to get the 20k bonus (I had this card back in 2012 i think)

Has anyone redeemed BMO Rewards Points recently?

I recall from booking before, that the points were typically 100 points = $1 on the BMO Rewards site for hotel rooms...

I'm looking at hotel rooms right now and it seems it's more like 110-130points = $1 now?

This is really the only downside to this card, their rewards redemption isn't very good...
wait what, i thought all travel is at 2%, no? Is it only air travel considered or booking via their site at 2%?

It's all travel. I and someone verified that it was 2.0%, and he never followed up so we dont know what happened to him.

How is the BMO mobile app? I am contemplating of switch from CIBC which has a really good app, but this is such a good card & the Unlimited plan is nice. I don't care about branch support

Has anyone tried to do a product switch from the cashback mc? I had switched from the world elite to the cashback last year, and wondering if I swapped back, would you still get the bonus?
