I got the email too.

I'll sign up on June 1st to maximize my months and send in the proof of payment.

Does anyone know if this has anything to do with swiping your debit card in order for them to send you a receipt?

Not that long ago my bank sent me an email telling me to go to the nearest ATM to change my passcode and told me never to use the old passcode unless I got a new card. Only place I remember swiping my card was Home Depot. (not as payment method, it was still chip purchase)

That said, I haven't got an email.

With CIBC, Borrowell, Credit Karma all offering free services, it seems like it isn't worth paying for credit scores/reports anymore...

www.newswire.ca/news-releases/cibc-intr ... 05414.html
Other than creditkarma (doesn't show balances or limits anymore) none of the above offers a detailed report that you can update every single day (versus waiting a full month or more).
I mean, I wouldn't pay either (have had my fair 2 years of free service), but having Equifax for the past two years helped with my credit card churning activity :)

what do you mean by this? my CK still shows everything it showed before, balances, limits, payment history, monthly payment amount, etc.

Myself and several other members are seeing $0.00 under limit,

Edit: looks like it may have been a delay, as I just logged on; score was updated and limit is showing again.

+1
Actually mine was showing Limit: -- on all trades.
It seemed to fix itself a week or two later.

also curious. I received the email and am entitled to the credit but have not signed up again yet. Wondering if anyone has submitted for reimbursement and has feedback on the experience.

I submitted like 2 weeks ago. Haven't heard anything yet. I'm sure they'll start to process the claims after the deadline has passed.
