Could Covid-19 Cause Cashless Payments to Be the New Normal?
It’s hard to pay from six feet away.
Plus, the idea of touching cash is making many queasy these days, which is why the COVID-19 pandemic may be speeding up the move to a cashless society.
According to a recent survey by Payments Canada, which compared spending behaviours pre-COVID-19 and at five weeks into the pandemic, 62% of Canadians reported using cash less than before the crisis.
How are people paying? They are using Interac e-Transfer, PayPal and credit cards more frequently, according to Payments Canada.
How are Canadians shopping? Thirty-eight percent are using e-commerce platforms for items, including groceries, and 26% are using food delivery services more often than pre-COVID-19. For in-store purchases, 53% reported using card or mobile tap payment more often than pre-pandemic.
This movement has accelerated a trend already underway, according to Payments Canada. In its 2019 Canadian Payment Methods and Trends Report, it found that electronic payments accounted for 73% of all transaction volumes, compared with 21% for cash…

Earn up to Triple Aeroplan Miles on Air Canada flights within Canada or between Canada and the U.S. (Targeted offer)Air Canada sent out an email to select Aeroplan members to earn extra miles on Air Canada flights this summer. Check your inbox to see if you have been selected, I received the email on Friday with the subject line ‘Satisfy your thirst for travel with up to 3X the Aeroplan Miles’. As you can gather from that subject line the promotion provides up to triple Aeroplan miles when you fly with Air Canada until October 15 within Canada or between Canada and the U.S.. What is interesting is that there is no registration button like we typically see with both targeted and non-targeted offers. This leads me to believe that Air Canada has automatically added the promotion to the selected Aeroplan members prior to the email being sent out. Unfortunately this means that you can’t even try to register for it and hope the system accepts your Aeroplan number.The offer itself provides double Aeroplan miles for flights booked in Standard Economy, Economy Flex, comfort and Latitude and triple Aeroplan miles for flights in Business Class, Premium Economy and Premium Rouge operated by Air Canada, Air Canada Express and Air Canada Rouge…
