When it comes to earning loyalty rewards, I think it’s reasonable to say that you can have too much of a good thing. I mean, how many programs can you possibly keep track of? It seems as though these days, every major retailer in Canada gives their customers a way to earn rewards.

1. How much should you tip?
With access to chip cards, tap, and mobile wallets, it is easier to pay for purchases without cash. This is great for goods, but what about services? It is customary to leave a 15 to 20% tip at restaurants, taxis and rideshares, and a few dollars for valets, hotel staff, and food delivery.
