November 3 Update: Guide to Credit Card Cash Back Liquidity updated, Cobalt Card also gets Sandman & Sutton Place Hotels offer + more Cobalt multipliers


We’ve updated a feature we launched early on during the pandemic – that feature is our Guide to Credit Card Cash Back Liquidity.
This useful article provides details on how soon you can redeem for
cash back from most cash back cards and travel rewards cards with cash
back options in Canada. The feature also details the minimum amount of
spend required to be able to redeem. This update covers the changes in
the cash back options for BMO Rewards Cards from 15,000 points for $50
to 200 points for $1 and a couple of other small changes. The next big
update to the feature will likely happen in February when CIBC switches
to instant redemption over annually. Check out the feature here.

Yesterday I let you know about the new Sandman Hotels and Sutton
Place Hotels Amex Offers that came out for the Platinum Card and
Scotiabank Gold American Express. Looks like the American Express Cobalt Card also gets the offers. For more details see our Guide to American Express Canada ‘Amex Offers’


Continuing on the subject of the American Express Cobalt Card
I have a couple more multiplier updates from Calgary. Blanco Cantina
(several Calgary locations) and Abbey’s Creations an ice cream shop in
NW Calgary both fall into the 5x points category. Check out the American Express Cobalt Card Confirmed Multiplier Locations here.
