Well, I have a credit card from 6 years ago that I owe $10,000 to and it hasn't disappeared off my profile yet.
I had my BMO mastercard for 3 years now and I've spent over $20k a year with it and always pay it off before the 21 day limit.

I applied for the Aeroplan member gold card also last week(around the same time I applied for my last aeroplan card) and hopefully it gets approved.

So what is the trick here to churn and make the most out of these cards?
Should I apply for more cards? (I have bad credit)

I also have the BMO World elite card.
My end goal is to travel from Halifax to Orlando return with my girlfriend for free

Remember your credit score is determined by 4 parts:
35% - payment history (do you pay on time?)
30% - outstanding debt (credit utilization ratio)
15% - credit history (how long have you had credit)
10% - new credit (inquiries)
10% - types of credit you have

Here is my post on churning:

I don't think you'll want to do a great deal of churning with your history. Make your applications count.

definitely the American Express Gold card (lots of referral options available) for 25,000 Mileage Rewards points, which you can turn into 25000 Aeroplan, or other options.

Even if you don't plan to keep the card for a second year, keep it at least 6 months. And keep making those payments on time.

Very good information. People often over look the importance of the credit utilization ratio. I usually use less than 30% of my credit limit for each card trying to get full score for the 30%

How do I create a link to refer an Amex card to someone? On the Amex website it only allows you to enter email address.

Thanks

1. Go to Amex Canada website, login to your account.
2. Click on REWARDS banner (top-right) -> Refer a Friend
3. Choose "Aeroplan Gold".
4. You'll now be able to recommend the "Aeroplan Gold/Gold Rewards Card"
5. I recommend copying the link via Facebook option, instead of Email way (Gmail is reliable, Hotmail isn't)

I've noticed a few people with links in the signatures for the referral link AMEX 30k. So for signing up I would get 30000 points/1st year free after meeting the spend requirement? I just cancelled my AMEX aeroplan plat card a few weeks ago before the annual fee

If that's the case, rather than just pick a link, the 1st person to PM me the link get's the referral points.

Just generated a link from my wife's account setting up an AeroPlat referral for myself. One referral bonus is 10k and another 15k.. Obviously generated the 15k link but my wife isn't an AeroPlat cc holder. This the 15k referral link work for you guys when not an AeroPlat cc holder? She is just a regular Aeroplan gold cc holder.

Also on topic, my wife's Aeroplan account posted her bonus balance December 17 25k. Interesting, her cc statement didn't print yet the bonus posted to her AE account.
