[Edit to add: my reply here is in ernest. it is not sarcasm. i think that publishing that you'll give $25 to anyone who says "yeah, i bought bread at loblaws two years ago" is ridiculous. i'm guessing that a massive portion of those claims will be untrue.]

Yes, because we rely on the honour system for convictions of murderers

Somehow I doubt they are going to be asking for a sworn statement of all the times you bought bread at Superstore. They agreed to a payout to get the Competition Bureau off their backs. Who actually gets the money is immaterial to them.

Dunno about you all, but I frequent this forum to learn new and better ways of earning points.
So, in the interest of getting this forum back on track, here's an offer for an Aeroplan survey.

which is why we really need a Canada sub-forum where different subjects can have their own threads. i don't think the mods were against it but nobody seemed to be too interested.

Alterna Visa Infinite Card

Some folks over at RFD seem to love this card.

2% return on spending. Not everyone is able to get 2% through their other Visa or MasterCard cards, so this reward ratio could be attractive to many.
(I myself get 2% return on the Capital One Aspire (which isn't available for new applications), and on a couple of MBNA cards (which are also grandfathered and no longer available).

If you have a lot of spend and your goal is to maximize your rewards dollars, and you only want to deal with 1 primary card, this might be a good option.
But there's a $120 annual fee.

Amex personal platinum card get $200 off $200 @yyz

Terms and Conditions

1 Purchase(s) must be completed between December 15th, 2017 and February 15th, 2018 and subsequently posted to the account to be a qualifying purchase for this offer.

2 The eligible American Express Platinum Card must be used when making qualifying purchases. Only one (1) $200 (CAD) statement credit is available per account during this offer period. The Basic or Supplementary Cardmember would have to make a qualifying purchase of $200 (CAD) or more (after taxes) in a single transaction on their eligible Card at a participating Duty Free location during the offer period to earn a statement credit. Statement credits earned on supplementary card purchases will be issued to the Basic Card account associated with that Supplementary Card. Purchase must be charged to an American Express Platinum Card at participating Duty Free retailers located at Toronto Pearson International Airport. Statement credit may take up to two billing cycles to appear on your statement after the Cardmember has completed a qualifying purchase. The statement credit will be reversed if the qualifying purchase is refunded or cancelled. If a portion of the purchase is returned but the remaining items still total $200 or more, the statement credit will not be reversed. If the statement credit is being applied to a credit card account, please note that this does not satisfy the requirements to pay the minimum due. A statement credit does not constitute a payment. The Cardmember must continue to make separate payments of at least the minimum due in accordance with the Cardmember agreement and account statement. We reserve the right to substitute an American Express Gift Card or cheque in lieu of the statement credit. American Express is responsible for the fulfillment of this offer. In the event that you replace your eligible Card through Amex Bank of Canada because it has been lost, stolen or there has been a fraud event during an Offer, your qualifying purchase will be transferred to your new Card. In this scenario your replacement Card will become your eligible Card. This offer will appear on your statement as “Bonus Credit ‑$200”.

Other personal Amex cards:


$50 off $250+
Amex Plat Biz
Amex Air Miles Plat
Amex SPG
Amex SimplyCash
Amex Choice
Amex Gold

I know! Wish I had a personal PLT (I have BIZ for the 25K referrals).

No not targeted.
