June 21 Update: The Ultimate No Fee Travel Points Credit Card Portfolio and RBC & Shoppers call it quits

News, Tips & Tricks

Today we released our latest Ultimate Credit Card Portfolio! This one looks at the best three cards to make a no fee travel points credit card wallet. If
you hate paying annual fees on credit cards or don’t need the benefits
or insurance that come with fee based cards you can still earn a decent
amount of travel rewards points with thest credit cards! In the wallet
we show you how you can maximize that earn with one Visa Card, a
MasterCard and an American Express Card. Find out what the The Ultimate No Fee Travel Points Credit Card Portfolio is here!

Also on the credit card front news is out that RBC and Shoppers Drug Mart are
ending their relationship. This doesn’t come as a surprise since
Loblaw’s owns Shoppers and will likely issue a PC Financial Shoppers
Optimum Credit Card in the near future.

We have got around to updating another one of our most popular
features. This one looked at the great redemption option for short haul
flights that British Airways Executive Club provided
for Canadians. Well earlier this year that changed and while the amazing
9,000 Avios round trip flights are gone you can still find some great
value in redeeming Avios for flights in North America. You can find out
which routes and methods for earning Avios in this feature that has now
been moved our main website (although you can still read about it on the
blog as
well). Read on here: Utilizing British Airways’ Executive Club for flights in North America
