PC financial NEW world elite master card, 3X points .

Yesterday, I called PCF about my existing world mastercard (the black one).
After my inquiry, the Rep. said a new world elite master card coming in this Sep,
comparing to existing one, the extra feature is
3X points at loblaws, no frills, shoppersdrugmart,
free travel medical insurance.

And I am pre-approved for this card, so I can apply it right now.

Some one reported no annual fee.
This card won't be released until Sep, but you can call in to sign up right now if you already have a PCF master card.

However, if you haven't used your card for a while, they may say no.

Urgh... I haven't used the card in years, but @ 3% back it might be worth the hassle @ SDM and Loblaws.

If it's still no fee. Are there any WE cards that are (base, not negotiated) no annual fee?

Finally a reason to dig out my PCMC and ask for an upgrade.
Haven't bothered to even get the upgrade to black as MBNA gives me 2% at any grocery, not just loblaws stores.

I already have the Scotia VISA infinite with 4% cashback on gas and groceries. Will the PC card return 3% in any grocery store which Scotia card doesn't return 4% ?
In this case, there is no reason to get the PC card.. right?

Many loblaws stores don't take visa (nofrills, wholesale, probably others).. So there's that.
I think only actual loblaws brand and superstores take visa.

All the premium brands take visa: Loblaws, Fortinos, Zehrs, Provigo, and some Superstores.

Anyone heard this new card?
I find that really odd that a 'rep' would advise you of a release of any new credit product that is 2 months away.

Standard fare has usually been that retail personnel at either branch level or voice csr never get notified of unreleased new products until the day after it actually occurs.
And even then, some depts are still in the dark when new products do get released and they still don't know anything about it or that they even have such a product.

If it comes it comes, but still odd.

Other than the 3% at Loblaws is there any difference between this new card and the existing world card?

So once the optimum program is eliminated, this card would be ideal for shopping at SDM.

The Rep. said it won't ready until Sep. I also need to wait even pre-approved.
