- does platinum supplementary user get their own visits to the airport lounges? E.g. can (1+1) x 2 enter the lounge at the same?
- is the annual fee prorated when adding the supplementary user mid year?

Financially, Scotia is by far the clear winner, especially since Scotia Amex gold has FYF plus maybe there is cash back rebate if apply at certain website. Not sure if Simplycash Preferred is FYF or if there is cash back rebate from a particular website.Fuego15 wrote: ↑ Kinda hesitating between getting the Amex Simplycash preferred or the Scotia Amex Gold. Is there a reason to get one over the other?
The Amex gold would give me $475 per year in Scene points ($355 if I were to pay the fees) whereas the Simplycash Preferred would give me $432 (minus $120 so $312). However this is straight cashback.
Where Scotia gets generous is when you open an account,you get $350 and right now when you open a TFSA and/or a RRSP you get another $350. Adding the $450 SUB ($400 for Amex in statement credit) the total value in one year for Scotia is $1625.
Is Scotiabank generally good (I’m currently with Tangerine)? Is the $700 worth it to switch everything? Otherwise the difference between the two cards is not that much. Thanks!

Yeah it’s tempting. If I were to go Aeroplan or Flight Reward Chart instead I’d god with CIBC though! Don’t know which can offer nice travel perks or if money is that mattersSpeedy1 wrote: ↑ Financially, Scotia is by far the clear winner, especially since Scotia Amex gold has FYF plus maybe there is cash back rebate if apply at certain website.

Whether it is worth the effort, nobody can answer that except you. For me, I would definitely choose Scotia.

It arrived in the mail, did my spend, got the points by last week (first statement) and used them against travel to get the redemption bonus.
Today I got an email that I was approved for the Gold! Found out via online chat first statement date is December 24th - I think I can make it in time for the Dec 31 redemption cut-off again!

I'm looking to apply for a couple new cards shortly... what would be the best travel reward alternative to start adding into the mix? one of TD / CIBC Aventura / Scotia rewards? Or something else?

This card is garbage now, I got it for the suppliers and then the supplier did not even take the card unless we spent $250K+ annually. No fine print on that. There also seem to be no Amex offers anymore on the Gold card, it's like they've abandoned it.batcave wrote: ↑ I have the American Express gold business card that I signed up with the Canada Post offer several years ago. I used to get 3000 Member Rewards points for renewing the card. I did not get it this year. Has this stopped for anyone that still has this card with the Canada Post offer?
This is not a very useful card with only 1x points. I used to use the the suppliers with 2x points but that was discounted earlier this year.

Yes they have abandoned it. I called in to ask. They said no more points on renewal. I then asked to cancel and they came back with a credit for the annual fee. Rare in Canada. I will cancel next year. This is the green card in disguise.

If you're looking at Aeroplan, I would go with CIBC's current offer for 45,000 AP. It is close to TD's full offer, but much lower spending requirement (45,000 AP for spending $1,000 with CIBC vs. 30,000 AP for spending $1,500 / 50,000 AP for spending $7,500 with TD). Then you can use the remaining $6,500 spending on other card bonuses (HSBC, TD First Class Travel, Amex, etc.) which may be redeemed against eligible travel purchases for your trip.erebakish wrote: ↑ What's the best card to get to lower costs for a trip to europe that I want to book for Sept 2023? Want to frontload the welcome bonus as much as possible. Preferably a fairly low spending MSR as I'm not a huge spender. Was looking at the TD Aeroplan visa infinite card as it can get me 30k aeroplan points off the bat fairly easily for a quick $600 that can go towards a flight, and another 20k after the first year of spending only $7500.
You can qualify for this offer if you apply and are approved for a new CIBC Aeroplan® Visa Infinite* Card beginning November 1, 2022.
