Best credit card for additional benefits

Hi folks,

What's your fave credit card for additional benefits e.g. cash back, extended purchase protection, travel insurance etc.

My card is Scotiabank Momentum Infinite Visa for the cash back.
It also doubles manufacturer warranties.

Was scrolling through some old posts and saw this – the extra perks you can get with a credit card is one of my favourite topics.

If you're looking for the ultimate card for perks, the Amex Platinum always comes to mind first and foremost. I mean, the card has a $699 annual fee – it has to have a lot of stuff going for it.

I'll name a few of my favourite perks (this card is literally packed full with it):
- $200 annual travel credit
- Unlimited free access to lounges worldwide
- the thing even has cruise privileges (up to $300 in shipboard credits)

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. This article does a more thorough job than I could at explaining the major perks. But there's no question in my mind that this card annihilates every other card in Canada when it comes to perks.

This is not a credit card but an investment. A highly risky one. The fact they can give you $20 a month in free stuff should tell you that.

Sarcasm? You have to buy $5000 of their made up token (granted all Crypto was made up at one point) and lock it in for 6 months minimum.
