Meridian Credit Union no longer accepting new credit card applications and a new Guide to Amex’s International Airline Program


Here’s your Rewards Canada update! Your near daily dose of
loyalty program, credit card and travel news, bonuses, deals and more.

According to a thread on RFD, Meridian Credit Union has stopped
accepting new applications for their cards as they will be changing
providers in the fall. There are no details of the planned switch or
what the cards will offer when they are released. We have updated our
Top Cash Back Card rankings since we had the Meridian Visa Infinite*
Cash Back Card ranked as the third best card in the market but now the
list shifts up and sees the TD Cash Back Visa Infinite* Card move back into
the rankings into 5th spot. These rankings will be changing again in
October when the new earn rates for the SimplyCash™ Preferred Card from American Express kick in and possibly seeing the Meridian card back in
the mix of things should their new card remain competitive. Check out our top cash back rankings here.

Our post on American Express’ International Airline Program proved to be very popular that we have turned it into a full fledged guide on the Rewards Canada site. Click here to check out our Guide to the American Express International Airline Program
