Scotiabank Gold American Express Card - First Year Free with a 20,000 points sign up bonus!

The card with some very strong category earning (Gas, Grocery, Dining & Entertainment) has had the 20,000 point sign up bonus since July 1 however it had the annual fee attached. However now we see the return of the FYF with the 20,000 points if you spend $500 in the first three months! The offer of 20,000 points is worth $200 in travel and since it is first year free you essentially get that $200 for free!  This offer is valid until February 28, 2016
