January 11 Update: No Foreign Transaction Fee Credit Cards for Canadians, new Small Business Credit Card page & earn 10,000 bonus Be Well points at Rexall

Here's your Rewards Canada Daily update! Your daily dose (or near daily dose) of loyalty program, credit card and travel news, bonuses, deals and more. This update is brought to you by the HSBC World Elite Mastercard which is currently offering a welcome bonus of up to 100,000 bonus points worth $500, has no foreign transaction fees and no annual fee in the first year! 

Another very popular feature on the Rewards Canada website has been updated for 2022. That feature is the No Foreign Transaction Fee Credit Cards for Canadians and sees the addition of three cards to the list and an update for one:

  • Scotiabank Passport Visa Infinite Business card has been added
  • Float Corporate Prepaid Visa Card has been added
  • Wealthsimple Cash Card has been added
  • Stack Mastercard has been updated as its No FX Fee is changing for the worse on February 1 (HT Prince of Travel)

As you can see two of the four are actually business/corporate cards so it's nice to see that part of the market is starting to see this benefit being added as well. I wonder if any of our readers can confirm if Amex's corporate contract with the Government of Canada still provides No FX Fees? If so, I'll make mention of it in the piece as well. Plus if there is anything I missed please do let me know as it seems this topic changes on a daily basis!

Click here to see the updated feature.


While on the topic of Rewards Canada updates I have also created a separate page strictly for Small Business Credit Card Offers. They are often missed on the site in the deluge of consumer card offerings so this page makes it easier to find them. Not all the cards are listed of yet but I will be adding cards frequently to the list. You can check out the page here and you'll also find a link to it on the main site menu under credit cards.

Be Well members can earn 10,000 bonus points for purchases of $25 or more at Rexall until January 20. Simply load the offer via the app or your online account.
