so they're basically making it more like the Personal Plat? I'm okay with that, I think.

Thanks. Regarding medical insurance, I plan to either subscribe a policy separate from the CC or if less expensive pay a supplement through the CC insurance company to top up the coverage for the duration of the stay (some credit cards offer that option). I'll look into both options once the trip is fully planned.

RBC link not working for me either. First page shows the 25k offer but once our hit apply, it shows standard offer of 15k and no mention of fyf.

From T&C:

† To be exempt from the annual fee for one year (the “annual fee waiver offer”) and to receive 25,000 bonus RBC Rewards points (or welcome points), your application form must be received and approved by us.

Upon enrolment, 25,000 bonus RBC Rewards points will appear on your first monthly statement. Additional cardholder(s), as well as existing RBC Visa Infinite Avion or Visa Platinum Avion, Cathay Pacific‡ Visa Platinum, British Airways‡ Visa Infinite, RBC Rewards Visa Preferred, RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege and RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege for Private Banking cardholders, applying for or transferring to an RBC Visa Infinite Avion card as of the offer eligibility period, are not eligible for this offer. This offer may not be combined or used in conjunction with any other offer.
so, if i read it correctly, having one of these existing RBC credit cards will not be eligible for this offer. is this normal for RBC?

Also, I can't find anything in T&C state about previous card holder. Last I have this card is back in 2014, wonder if anyone have this card more than once and got sign-up bonus more than once.

Thanks.

That's the only link that seems to work for the 25K points and free first year. I tried to modify it but it didn't work.

Going through RBC website only gives you 15K points and $120 annual fee.

Looks like it's an exclusive offer.

You should have no problem getting the 25K and free first year. I've had the card x3 and each time I've gotten the bonus points and free first year.

applied earlier and got approval. Will report back if I do get the bonus and FYF.

But FYI, when I click "view detail" at last page, it still show 15K and no FYF. So, will see.

Looks like the referral link already changed. Doh. Useless to me, I just want the welcome bonus, so suddenly it's $100 more for the points.

Is that the $25 gift card for the bread price fixing scam?
