    scotia momentum just changed their terms, jacked the annual fee, doesnt work well for me now, what's the best visa out there for gas/groceries (cash back, i prefer cash over rewards)? i mostly use my rogers MC anyway except gas and groceries... but i need a visa as well just in case.
    Where do you buy gas/groceries mostly?

    also, what do you mean by Visa just in case? I've never come across a merchant that doesn't accept MC and only Visa so you can probably get by without one. I haven't had a Visa since the old amazon.ca card was canceled and it's never been a problem having only MCs since then.

    If you travel you will find that VISA is better for foreign ATMs. Its always funny because i have to loan my buddies money when their cards don't work. This was the case in Taiwan and Korea. I'm sure you could find MC but VISA was more prevalent.

    groceries are mostly costco which is only MC

    I have come across a few merchants that only accept one or the other, usually little mom&pop shops.

    ah good call, forgot about that one. Personally never been to a US Costco so never impacted me, but worst case scenario you can just pay with debit for the odd time you need it. not worth the effort to bend over backwards to find a visa just for one store that most people rarely go to.

    That must be a recent change as I have definitely used my MC at US Costcos in the past. At least most of the good FX cards seem to be Visa's haha.

    Finally decided to change cards now that we acrrued enough points to fly to Maui. Looking at the "no FX" ones, and Mastercards because we shop at Costco a lot. Deciding between the Rogers one, and the new Amazon one that launched, but then crashed due to mass applications.

    Those of you with a Rogers card, do they have online banking, to check your balance and transactions regularly? Right now I have a CIBC visa, and bank with them, so its super easy to pay my balance daily and not have interest accrument.

    Yes online banking works great, plus a phone app for clicking "on" when you want to use your cash back next. Seems to take awhile for transactions to officially post and inevitably the cost is higher than originally stated in "pending" status lol. Got about $250 from our Europe trip last month back while there so we got a free hotel and some of our meal covered one night!

    No experience with that Amazon card.

    Yup they have online banking with forced email-based 2fa. However the 2fa prevents syncing with mint, so that may be an issue if you use mint religiously to track everything. That’s my only complaint with the Rogers card...besides that I’m a big fan. Also make sure you apply for the WE if you can vs the platinum. Even if u don’t meet the income requirements, apparently they don’t validate it so just say you’re above the minimum salary


    On another note, looks like capital one got breached:

    Yep there is an app for it. Handy for when you need to use the rewards for "next purchase"

    is it myrogers
    or pay with rewards?

    edit: figured out the Pay with rewards apps.
    I take no app to check your CC though, all through the website?
    I also have it setup to TXT and Email me for any transactions.

    oh shit, just noticed that now. can confirm it works again. I stopped using Mint after the Rogers card stopped working back in like March or so (since that's where like 90% of my transactions are on) and stopped checking up. I see they just need you to type in the emailed 2fa code when it refreshes now. Now to go back through like 4+ months of txns to categorize them

    Planning on using the WJ companion voucher for Hawaii in 2020. After that, I'm thinking of cancelling my WJ Mastercard. Trying to move away from the credit card lifestyle and a no-fee card should do the trick.

    Yeah that's my plan early next year as well.
    Both wife and myself each have a WJ CC but I'll cancel mine after redeeming my voucher as I didn't find any major saving (overall you are probably going to save only 200$).
    Wife will keep hers as we are still planning to travel in the US or Hawaii once a year.

    Have HomeTrust and Rogers MC that are free and decent for rewards and car rental insurance but going to review how they both fare for travel protection.
    I also have TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card but might be cancelling this too.

    Got the Rogers Mastercard in the mail. Called to cancel my Visa and they suddenly decide I don't need to pay the annual fee anymore, lol.

    Guess everything is negotiable , just like phone and cable packages.

    Yeah. Aside for the lifestyle change we're trying to make, I really didn't save too much with this WJ mastercard. Was nice to have free checked bags but it limited me to WJ flights and the WJ dollars could only be applied to the core ticket itself, fees still had to come out of pocket.

    Additionally, there's not alot of expensive locations that Westjet flies to where you can really make use of that $399 companion voucher.

    Meanwhile, I'm still paying $120 a year for this card.

    Good point about the travel insurance though. If I cancel the card I'll have to purchase it from elsewhere prior to a trip.

    That companion voucher is most useful if you have to fly last minute and can't find a seat sale. Limits the cost of 1/2 of the seats.
