Scotiabank Gold American Express Card – First Year Free with a 30,000 points sign up bonus!

Back on March 1st I stated that I didn’t think we’d see a stronger offer for this card as 20,000 points
with 1st year free that we had seen the card for sometime and that all changed when the offer got better that day. Well I’m eating my words again as the card just got even better for new sign ups! The card with some very
strong category earning (Gas, Grocery, Dining
& Entertainment) had a 25,000 point sign up bonus with no
annual fee in the first year since the start of March. However now we
see the card keep FYF but have the sign up bonus jump to 30,000 points
if you spend $750 in the first three
months! The offer
of 30,000 points is worth $300 in travel and since it is first year free
you essentially get that $300 for free! 
This offer is valid until July 31, 2017!

This card ranked second in the Travel Points Card with annual fee category and fifth overall in our 2017 Top Travel Rewards Credit card rankings and you’ll definitely see it in our Top 5 Sign Up offers for May.
