November 2 Update: WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard offer of 350 bonus dollars extended, Scotia lowers the welcome bonus on the Passport Visa Infinite Card & Top 5 Mastercard Cards to use at Costco updated


WestJet and RBC have extended the current increased welcome bonus of 350 WestJet dollars on the WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard to November 11th. That's only a 12 day extension from the original October 31 end date. We don't have any details yet of what will come on November 12. As always it is a gamble - do you go for it now and secure a really good welcome bonus or wait with the hope of something better coming along. Learn more about the current offer here.

 

 In a surprising move when the credit card market is heating up here in Canada Scotia has lowered the welcome bonus for the Scotiabank Passport Visa Infinite Card by 5,000 points. Right now when you apply for the card you'll get 20,000 bonus points when you spend $1,000 on the card within the first three months and an additional 10,000 points if you can spend $40,000 in the first year. Learn more here.

 

 
In light of last week's news that Capital One will be ending their contract with Costco and Hudson's Bay we have updated our Top 5 Mastercard Cards to use at Costco feature. And this isn't because of Capital One (their Costco card never ranked in the Top 5) but we added the HSBC World Elite Mastercard to the Top 5 and removed the WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard. While both effectively earn 1.5% at Costco the HSBC card is more flexible in terms of travel redemption options. Check out the feature here.

There's a little less than a week left to get the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card with its 25,000 bonus Aeroplan Miles offer and first year annual fee waiver. The question we have posed for more than a month now is whether you should get the card now or wait for the new version of the card that will come out on November 8. All I can say is that if you travel alone and want the most miles possible - apply for it now. You can apply for the card here.
