Canadians’ Spending Habits and Payment Preferences are Changing
According to a recent study by Payments Canada, the COVID-19 pandemic is changing Canadians’ spending habits. The study found that 62% of Canadians are using less cash, and 42% avoid shopping at places that don’t accept contactless payments altogether.
Moreover, 53% of consumers reported using a card or mobile tap for payment more than pre-pandemic.
Further findings suggest 38% of Canadians are using e-commerce platforms more often, and 26% of consumers are prioritizing food delivery services.
These shifts in payment method preferences and spending behaviours are likely to stick around as Canadians become more comfortable with these consumer options.

CIBC offering double Aventura points, Aeroplan Miles and Cash Back on dine in, take out and delivery purchasesHot on the footsteps of card issuers like American Express and TD who have been boosting earn rates on their credit and charge cards CIBC is now doing the same. From today through to August 4 CIBC cardholders will earn double rewards on  up to $1,000 in spending on dine in, order take-out (including curbside pickup), or order delivery from local restaurants.

More Rewards partnership with Petro-Canada ending on July 31Not so good news for those who collect More Rewards points – one of the programs best partners will be leaving the program on July 31. On that date the partnership between More Rewards and Petro-Canada will come to an end. I received the email yesterday from Petro-Canada stating this development and when you go to the More Rewards website it confirms the change:This is a really unfortunate change to the program that affects all members but more so for those who don’t live in Western Canada. The More Rewards program started to make in roads nationally a few years back when they launched a nationwide credit card with Scotia (it was the best no free travel rewards credit card) and made this partnership with Petro-Canada. However the credit card went the way of the dodo bird last August and now with Petro-Canada leaving the program it will next to impossible for anyone not from Alberta, B.C., Manitoba and Saskatchewan to earn More Rewards points. With the departure of Petro-Canada the only partners that are available Canada wide are More Rewards Insurance and More Rewards Travel, the rest of them are only out west…

The latest is really for those itching to travel and it’s a big one! When you book flights with your Aeroplan miles for travel within Canada or between Canada and the U.S. they will give you 50% of your miles back! The offer valid on new bookings only, made between June 17 and July 1, 2020, for travel from July 1 to October 15, 2020. The miles will be credited to your account within three weeks of you completing the flights which means you need to have the full amount of miles at time of booking. However in the end this means you would only be spending as little as 3,750 miles for one way short haul economy class flight or 6,250 miles for a one way long haul economy class flight. For round trip those numbers are simply doubled. Business class would end up being 7,500 miles and 12,500 miles one way respectively. As there are only two weeks in this promotion you won’t have time to apply for an Aeroplan earning card to use for the promotion however if you have a card earning Amex Membership Rewards Points like the Platinum Card or Gold Rewards Card you can convert points over instantly to Aeroplan…
