The first authorized user is free, 6 free lounge visits, 2 points per dollar on travel, entertainment, dining, groceries, and transportation. Plus an extra $100 if $40,00 spent annually. For some people it might be worth it.

Bonus is still $75K from what I can see.
Does someone have a screenshot of this offer? I applied just then, & I received only 35k points, (I did already more than 12k in spending).

They sometimes post the bonus offers in bunches over a period of time.

Canada only has equifax and transunion.

RBC and Scotia allow you to see your transunion, while ratehub will give you your équifax

Applying for the MBNA Alaska card for my wife, and if there's a way to pull it off, I want to earn the points to my account.
Anyone know if I can put my Alaska Mileage Plan # on a credit card application for her (i.e. will they catch it?), or if I can somehow pool the points afterwards to book flights together? Thanks

Particularly the BRIM cards sound awesome, it's still in pre-launch, if you plan to apply I have a code
Can you please send me a code? Thanks!

I changed my address on my BMO bank account. Will that update my credit report? Is there a way to check for free?

Want to refer myself from Amex Canada Business Plat to Business Gold. A few questions:
1. How long should I wait after cancelling my old business gold card until applying for a new one? I've seen people recommend 1 month, others say right away is fine.... Any experience here?
2. Can I refer myself from biz plat to biz gold, or should I use someone else's link?

how will you farm the referral points if by the time you apply the referrer account is already closed? you don't need to close before you can close after

I'm referring from my biz plat (which I'm keeping). I just closed a biz gold that I had, and I was wondering whether I need to wait before applying for a new biz gold. Are you saying I don't need to wait at all?

@Alexsei Can you clarify 2 things, if you have experience with this:
1. Do amex canada self-referrals still work?
2. How long do I have to wait after closing a biz gold before opening a new biz gold to get the signup bonus again?
Thanks.
