Take a couple days to show up
More then a couple in my case. My points lag big time, especially from non-PC stores. Had to launch two point review investigations and in each case I was awarded with the points I claimed. I got my card almost exactly at the same time they swtiched to PC Optimum program, which has had lots of hiccups.

19.97%.

But I assume you would be paying off the statement balance in full each month as to avoid any interest right?

So under the new system, you can earn bonus pc points at SDM if you use this PC World MasterCard?

Instead of Optimum points at 10x rate it's PC Optimum points at 15x rate.

its 15 points base, and 30 points bonus for the world elite. so 45 points per dollar when using world elite card at shoppers, on top of bonus offers.

In my experience, points inquiries are approved immediately for low point totals. I did a whole bunch at once when I first got my card and the points were taking a while to show up. All the points were added instantly, even the ones I accidentally entered twice, and then a week later the actual points I was supposed to have earned also showed up. If it's only for a couple thousand points they probably just push it right through; not worth having an employee manually go through them all.

You are right, thanks for the extra info. Still 30 pts elsewhere.

Looks like I will be using this card at SDM more now, what routine items do you guys buy that is on par with prices at other stores? So far I go when I get a 20x coupon for milk, eggs, yogurt... I find things like hair/hygeine products are always way more than walmart even with 20x points factored in.

I only buy things on the front page of the flyer.

Just received and activated my card today... anyone else having trouble linking their new MC to their existing PC Optimum account? It gives me an error indicating that they can’t link the new card for whatever reason.

I am going to apply for this, have been thinking about getting this card for awhile.

When I go to the application though, it doesn't let me select one of the three CC, clicking on them does nothing. How do I ensure I'm getting the world elite mastercard? I qualify for it...

It's based on your income.

Late to the game here.
What does RateSupermarket get out of this?

They are owned by a mortgage broker called Kanetix and have all their marketing & public relations done by BlueSkyCommunications.

Do they all get our financial details?

Do any of them telemarket or mass e-mail you afterwards?

The BBB has no reviews on them, though there were 4 complaints that were resolved with the issuance of gift cards.

My guess is they are willing to give up most or all of their referral fees in exchange for building a marketing database with solid recent financial consumer data.

Do they resell this data or use it internally to market their own aftermarket mort
