May 25 Update: Amex drops minimum income requirements, National Bank Echo CashBack added to charts, Aeroplan Fairmont bonus

News, Tips & Tricks

American Express reached out to us to let us know that they
no longer have a minimum income requirement on any of their card
products as of today. Also The bankruptcy rule has become more lenient.
They will only decline applicants who have filed for bankruptcy in the
past 2 years rather than the current rule of 7 years. This is great news
for students, low income earners and people looking to rebuild credit
where income requirements or prior bankruptcy may have kept some people
for applying for certain cards.

We have added the National Bank ECHO CashBack MasterCard
to our Cash Back Credit Card comparison chart. Of note is the card’s
earning of 1.5% for online purchases. You can also cash out anytime your
rewards balance hits $25 or more. Check out how it compares to others here!

This Saturday is once again a 20x Shoppers Optimum points day! If you are planning on shopping there hold off until Saturday!
