Agree, maybe it works for some, but it'll take forever to get enough points to be useful for most. When you need 10,000 points to do anything worthwhile its less than a drop in the bucket. Save your...

My buddy pass is there (CIBC Infinite card). The expiry date is 6 Jan 2022 so I guess its been there a while. I assume that your minimum spend was reached?
