Want to get away from the cold and snow? Unfortunately, we can’t send you somewhere warm… but we can offer you tips to save on your next vacation, plus give you a chance to win the travel essentials we swear by! Keep reading to find out how to maximize your travel rewards and how to win our go-to travel products + a $100 prepaid Visa gift card!
Tip #1: Maximize Your Travel Rewards
Many people assume they should use one of the best credit cards in Canada, but that may not be entirely true. The best credit card for you will be whichever one gives you the greatest return, based on your personal spending habits. For example, if you mostly use your credit card to pay for gas and groceries, the Scotiabank Gold American Express would be perfect, as it gives you 4 points per $1 spent in those categories. However, if you find you mostly use your credit card to pay for “other costs” (shopping, bills, etc.) then you may find the WestJet RBC World Elite MasterCard offers you a greater return, at 1.5% per $1 spent. If you’re in the market for a new travel rewards credit card, input your personal spending on our site and see which cards you’re matched up with.
Tip #2: Maximize Your Comfort
With an increasing number of low-frills airlines now available, as well as that $25 checked baggage fee we’re all destined to pay, those small and uncomfortable airplane seats just got a little more uncomfortable. To maximize your comfort level on your next flight, we think all frequent flyers should board with the following travel essentials:
- A cushy neck pillow to alleviate neck pain
- A versatile fleece blanket that transforms into a pillow
- A silky smooth eye mask to block out all light, so you can get a little shut-eye (pun intended)
Tip #3: Maximize Your Cash Flow
Finally, we know how expensive vacations can be. No matter how much you save on hotels or flights, costs still add up… fast. Wouldn’t it be nice to find an extra $100, before you take off to your next destination? We can help! We’re giving away all three of the travel essentials listed above + a $100 prepaid Visa gift card!
