June 21 Update: Meridian Visa Infinite added to site, Ultimate British Airways portfolio

News, Tips & Tricks

We’ve added the Meridian Visa Infinite Travel Rewards Card to
our Credit Card Comparison charts. This credit union based card is a
relative newcomer to the market and runs somewhere near the middle of
the pack of travel rewards cards. From what we can tell it has an OK
return for travel at about 1.5% on all purchases, 3% on Foreign Currency
purchases (that also include a 2.5% foreign transaction fee) and really
strong out of province medical insurance of up to 48 days! You have to
redeem via Meridian Travel Rewards and they don’t state the actual
redemption rate for travel (it’s always a scary proposition when a
proprietary credit card program doesn’t tell you that before you apply,
or make it hard to find) We went to the Meridian Rewards site and you
can start a travel booking but only get one step in where it gives you a
‘from this many points’ for booking a flight. That’s where we came up
with the ~1.5% but in fact it might be lower since because of that word
they use ‘from’. Anyways you can check out the card on the following two
comparison charts of ours:

We will be adding several other Meridian cards to our site over the coming weeks

FYI this post has been updated as we removed the RBC/Esso news. Apparently Esso was not supposed to have sent out an email… yet and there is some incorrect information in it. RBC told us they’ll advise us when everything is nailed down so that we can pass along the info.
