That means we have now lost the top 2 no annual fee travel rewards cards in Canada! The other being the American Express Blue Sky credit card. In the coming months there will be two more no annual fee cards (1 travel + 1 cash back card) that will also be pulled from our market however we aren’t allowed to disclose which cards those are just yet…
