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

Although we gave it a quick mention yesterday in our daily update, the revised offer for the Scotiabank Gold American Express card deserves its own post!

The card with some very strong category earning (Gas, Grocery, Dining
& Entertainment) has had the 20,000 point sign up bonus for some time now
however it had the annual fee attached. However now we see the return
of the FYF with the 20,000 points if you spend $750 in the first three
months! This is a chance from the previous $500 requirement but $750 is easily achievable in those 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 January 31, 2017

This card ranked third in the Travel Points Card with annual fee category in our 2016 Top Travel Rewards Credit card rankings and you’ll definitely see it in our Top 5 Sign Up offers for November.
