Best Canadian Based Travel Credit Cards
I am new to the travel rewards community. I have a simple question. What travel credit cards would you recommend for Canadian based travelers looking to go to South Korea/Asia?
I’d check out this blog for some tips – its geared towards Canadians [URL]http://pointshogger.boardingarea.com/[/URL]
you can also take a look at rewardscanada.ca in addition to pointshogger. IMHO, if you really want to go to Korea, I think Aeroplan based credit cards and Amex Membership rewards (which can transfer to Aeroplan) are the best for you. Asiana, a Korean-based Star Alliance airline, is bookable through Aeroplan…
Thanks. This has given me a good start. With the Gold AMEX I would get 25,000 bonus miles after spending $1500 in the first three months. This would equal roughly $250 in discounts, not including the all the points I accumulated in the process. This is great because I don’t even have to pay the fee the first year. Are there any other way I could leverage additional points? I don’t want to move up to the AMEX Platinum because of the big yearly fee. However, I might be overlooking the benefits.
There are a couple of other Boarding Area blogs that are Canada-specific. Canadian Kilometres comes to mind. Check out the Our Bloggers button on the home page of Boarding Area to see a list of all the bloggers and a bit of info on their specialties.
I did check out Canadian Kilometers the other day and saw that they did not have a new post since May. Not sure if it is still an active blog…
There was a new post today, which is what made me think of it!
