May 9 Update: Does your credit card round up or down? RBC Avion to British Airways 30% bonus & more!

News, Tips & Tricks

Today is a no news is good news day! The two major pieces of
news in the Canadian loyalty world have been covered in separate posts
already so feel free to click on them below!

Tip of the day: Check to see how your credit card awards points on
non-whole dollar purchases to see if you are missing out on miles and
points. Some cards round down and others round up. Tha means some won’t award points and miles on the cents portion of
your purchase while others will round up if you hit the 50 cent mark.
For example if you buy something for $28.79 some cards will only award
you with whatever points or miles you are entitled to get for $28 while
others will award you with points or miles for $29 since they round up
at the 50 cent mark. Not a huge deal but I know when I’m buying gas on
my American Express Gold Rewards card and the pump stops at $94.38 I’ll top off to just over $94.50 to get those extra two points.
