1) If I get the AmEx card in addition to my scotiagold card, will the points earned on both cards be in one account only? Meaning I can use the AmEx to rack up points but use the ScotiaGold for travel to take advantage of the 5% cashback.
2) Lastly, will it be advisable to wait till October then to apply for this card?

If you want the bonus, you have to to open a new account with them. The rep told me that, beginning october 10th, they will contact existing clients about this card and offer different promotion to them (maybe fee waved for the first year, etc.).
He also told me that they will give a companion card with this card (if the merchant doesn't take Amex), the Reward Visa...giving a wonderful 0.5%. I've stop him right away..."you telling me that if they don't take my 4% card, I can use this 0,5% card ???" He told me: "You're right, it doesn't make any sense...i'll take your feedback in consideration and will talk about it in our next meeting on friday...you know that is a brand new product and will have to adjust some littles things". Anyway, we gonna see if it's true or not...but it's a good start.
