At least they're being transparent with you, the US F/R reps aren't usually that forthcoming (to say the least)

Yisrael
How did you set that up?
Did they just ask when you were applying for 2nd card if you have an existing SPG account?

I applied for both online and both were first year free so no fee upfront.  I first signed up for an SPG account and then used the SPG number when applying for the American SPG Amex card.  Then I applied for a Canadian SPG Amex card and used the same SPG account number.  Was simple and no problem.

I haven't been able to find a Canadian SPG with first year free.
If anyone stumbles across one, please post.

FYI-
Someone with a U.S. Amex SPG can refer one to a Canadian Amex SPG.

I haven't been able to find a Canadian SPG with first year free.
If anyone stumbles across one, please post.

I decided to go for it and that the 25,000 SPG are worth the $120 annual fee. The deals just aren't the same in Canada.
I have the U.S. Amex SPG and just got approved for the Canadian as well. I'm going to wait until the points post to merge accounts.

Is that referal from a US cardholder or is there a seperate referal program for the Canadian card. If its seperate please post link.

Thanks Dealvr. Maybe I'll also do it. Any ideas how to get Canadian dollars into my Canadian checking from US so I can pay $120 fee? My Canadian account is with TD.

One of the TD account types on this page might be helpful as a long term solution.

They definitely allow fee-free withdraws at TD USA, so I figured there might be a deposit (or USD payment) option as well.
