I thought the best time to apply for this was sometime in Nov to avoid 2 annual fee charges or something?

Not surprised. Not the first time something like this has happened before. Reps don’t lie (usually). They just have different levels and years of experience. You just happened to bounce onto one that was greener than others. That’s why I suggested you to try and see for yourself. Good that it worked out for you.

Since amazon accept Amex.
Do you guys think it is a good idea to buy Amazon gift card with Amex? I supposed this will be eligible purchase for the 4k, correct?

If you are at the end of your 4 month welcome period, sure, that could work. But given that UGO has offered $500 for $550 worth of amazon gc, you should take advantage of that deal instead (of course, in the future).

Just paid my 2019 Tax Bill of $3600 through Simply Pay, cost 2.5 % so reduced my tax bill by 7.5%. Have $3500 in dental work coming up and will put that on my HSBC MC when received as well as cottage property taxes. Also have a CIBC Aerogold Visa, don`t think I will be flying anywhere soon if I switched to a CIBC Dividend would I get that bonus offer??

Cash back is issued on the September statement. So applying in October would be the best

Simply Pay website doesn't make it clear whether cc payment will be considered cash advance. I was planning to call them to double check before I use my amex preferred simply cash card with them.
