Rare Canadian SPG offer. 25,000 points for spending $1,500 in three months. For personal and business versions. Sign up through GCR to receive another $30.

Anyone aware once you spent the required spending how long it takes to get the points?

I have a good credit score in the US and I'm thinking of applying for US cards with good bonuses that have a zero foreign transaction fee and I will use the card here in Canada. Anyone thought of this? or is doing this? If yes, did you run into any trouble?

The card is not intended to be used only for foreign transactions.

I wouldn't be too sure. Credit card companies do not like to be messed around with.
