Canadian Credit Cards
« on: February 01, 2011, 08:18:04 PM »
Hey Dan (or anyone else reading)

Do you have any good tips for Canadians regarding good credit cards? I'm a huge fan of your site but I can't usually get any of the awesome credit card benefits because I'm Canadian and as far as I know, we don't have a site as good as this one for credit cards north of the border.
Please help us

Thanks!

The starwood amex also charges like $50 or $65 per additional cardholder u can double check that. However the aeroplan gives u At least one additonal cardholder free and i believe even two. Plus on the aeroplan the points are 1=1  ratio and every dollar after $10000 dollars spent is 1=1.25 points ratio. Also the most flights out of Canada is Air Canada.

Is there still way to get Canadian SPG without annual fee? According to their site there iss $120 annual fee.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Starwood has a 20k bonus now for Canadians. Also a side note, that Canadian MR points transfer into SPG at 2:1 which is better than the US rate of 3:1

I am under the impression that the 20k offer is over. If you have a link please post.

Thanks.
Anyone know when the annual fee hits on the Canadian cards?

*Modification*

Charged on 1st statement after Card issued and once a year thereafter (regardless of card activation).

I don't see why it wouldn't, but can anyone confirm the 3 browser method works in Canada?
