August 2 Update: Scotiabank American Express Card changes, there are Flying Blue Promo Awards from Canada + more!

News, Tips & Tricks
The entry level Scotiabank American Express Card went through some changes yesterday. The card now has a sign up bonus of 5,000 Scotia Rewards bonus points with your first $500 in everyday purchases in the first three months but is losing the 2x bonus on Gas, Grocery and dining/entertainment spending. If those categories don't mean much to you then the sign up bonus makes this card better for you however if you spend lots in those categories you will end up earning less with this card. In reality you really should try going for the Scotia Gold American Express card first if you can as it has a much larger sign up bonus and quadruple points for those same category purchases. But the other good news on the card? The annual fee is gone as well as this card moves into the no annual fee travel points credit card category!

At the start of each month we usually tell you about Air France KLM's Flying Blue promo awards and as we mentioned in yesterday's update there were no offers this month from Canada. When we do update the promo awards there are two pages we always check. One, the main Promo Awards page that tends to be the most accurate one was updated and the second page we check wasn't updated at the time of posting. Well the page that tends to be more accurate doesn't seem to be this time as our other source for promo award is showing 3 Canadian cities available at 25% off in business class! If you go through the steps to book this you'll see that these are really available this month and not a mistake by not deleting last month's offers of that page. You can find the details here and we'll most likely have a separate post detailing the offer in the next few days!
