February 22 Update: Canadian No Foreign Transaction Fee Credit Card Feature, 15% Bonus WestJet dollars when converting RBC Rewards & a note from Amex

Ever since Chase announced they were exiting the Canadian market and shutting down their Marriott and Amazon cards earlier this year we have been inundated with questions on which cards in Canada still offer no foreign transaction fees. We have been answering individual emails and replying to comments on the site daily with the response and will continue to do so however we have also made a new feature on the main Rewards Canada site that covers this exact topic! You can now always check back to see the list of cards that either offer no foreign transaction fees or reward you with a return higher than that of the FX fee. Be sure to check out and bookmark the feature today!

We came across this next offer somewhat late due to our vacation but for anyone who is interested, you still have a week or so to take advantage of it. That offer is the latest transfer bonus from RBC Rewards to WestJet Rewards. Like most of the recent offers for this conversion, it is once again a 15% bonus. With this offer you will get 1.15 WestJet dollars for every 100 RBC Rewards points converted (minimum of 1,000 points required to be converted) Of course the newest sign up offer for the RBC Visa Infinite Avion won't work for the promotion this time however you could grab the card and then wait for the next time it is offered which would give you $287 WestJet dollars at no cost! Find out more about the RBC to WestJet transfer bonus here.

And finally a big thank you to everyone who has been contributing to our American Express Cobalt confirmed multipliers page! Keep the contributions coming, even those where you think you should be getting the multipliers but aren't but in addition to letting us know, Amex has asked us to pass along the following:
It’s best for the Cardmember to call customer service for bonusing related issues. We need the Cardmembers data to be able to source the transaction in the back end to determine if the multiplier worked.... without Cardmember data, it’s hard to determine what would have happened.
This way American Express can make sure everything is working properly and if not they can get it fixed!
