March 9 Update: What you actually have to spend to get some of the best credit card welcome bonus offers, Targeted Air Canada Flight Bonus, Most Popular Posts from Last Week

Since we have seen a few new card updates this month we have updated our "What you actually have to spend to get some of the best credit card welcome bonus offers" feature. We now list some of the cards like the CIBC Aventura Visa Infinite Card and Scotia Passport Visa Infinite Card twice - once to show what the initial sign up bonus is worth and then again to show the value if you hold it for the 12 month bonus. Check out the updated feature here. (It will be updated again in a day or two as HSBC should have their new offer out on their World Elite card)

Check your email for targeted Air Canada Aeroplan flight offer for flights within Canada. I received it this morning and it offers up to 200% bonus Aeroplan Miles.

Air France has issued details of their Coronavirus flight waivers - they state ANY flights booked before March 31 can be re-booked at no charge. Based on this wording even if you booked something months ago you are able to re-book. Most other airlines are only offering this on new bookings made this month. (Source Air France)

This is similar to Qatar Airways who emailed the following:

Qatar Airways has updated its travel policy so you can travel with confidence, offering you more flexibility and peace of mind. If you have booked or will book flights for travel up to 30 June 2020 you will be offered the flexibility to change your travel plans free of charge by altering the dates of your booking or exchanging your ticket for a travel voucher valid for one year. This includes award flights since we value every Qmile you’ve earned with us as a Burgundy member. So, if your plans change, rest assured that we are ready to support you.
