October 7 Update: Capital One® Aspire Travel™ World MasterCard® moves to straight redemption ratio, Enter to win a $100 Gas Card!

A pretty busy Wednesday!

News, Tips & Tricks
Great news for those who have or will be getting the Capital One® Aspire Travel™ World Elite MasterCard®! They have moved away from the tiered redemption ratio for redemptions under $600 as now 100 points will equal $1 no matter what. This means with the Capital One® Aspire Travel™ World Elite MasterCard® you are now getting a straight 2% return! This is much welcomed news and oh, they will now allow for partial redemptions, you don't have to have the full amount of points. So if you have a $300 ticket and $150 worth of points you can redeem those $150 against the $300 charge! Watch out BMO World Elite, TD First Class Visa Infinite and others! This card is on a comeback!

Thanks to Rewards Canada reader David for letting us know about the new Tangerine Money Back credit card that will be coming out soon. It provides you with 2% cash back on two categories of your choice (not sure if it is generic like travel and groceries or merchant specific) and then 1% on all other purchases. The card will have no annual fee and if you have a Tangerine Savings account and choose to bank your credit card cash back into that account you'll get a third category for the 2% back. Reminds us of the not-so-succesful American Express Choice cards that were out a few years ago. Learn more about the card here.
