October 16 Update: Air Transat adding Montreal-San Diego flights and Scotia’s new premium banking plans include annual fee waivers on their best credit cards

Air Transat will be adding a new route between
Montreal and San Diego for the Summer 2020 season . The route will
operate 3x weekly with a 737-800. As we don’t know yet what the status
of Air Transat will be with Air Canada your best bet for earning or
redeeming points for these flights is with a proprietary credit card
program. (Source Routesonline) Image via Air Transat

Recently Scotiabank introduced a couple of new
banking plans, the Ultimate Package and the Preferred Package. We don’t
really discuss banking plans on Rewards Canada unless those plans
include a benefit that waives fees on associated credit cards. Well
guess what? These packages do just that! They waive the fees up to $139
on select Scotia cards. Now these banking plans have their own monthly
fees but those can be waived if you maintain minimum monthly balances in
them. The eligible cards for fee waivers are the Scotiabank Gold American Express, Scotiabank Passport™ Visa Infinite*, Scotia Momentum® Visa Infinite and Scotiabank Value® Visa* credit cards. The first free
are all very good cards in their own right so to be able to get them for
free by having one of these plans is icing on the cake! Learn more here!

Earlier today we brought you the details on the new American Express Business EdgeTM Card. This card has now been added to our American Express page and also to our Business Credit Card Comparison Chart.
