New Amex Offers for Ivanhoe Cambridge Gift Cards and Robinson LightingTwo new Amex Offers offers showed up in my account today for the Platinum Card from American Express and my wife’s Marriott Bonvoy American Express card account:The first one is really the stand out offer and you should log in to your account right away to see if you have been offered it as it is limited to 15,000 registrations. The offer itself is like getting a 20% discount on almost any shopping at Ivanhoe Cambridge shopping malls as these are the mall gift cards that you can use at most stores within those malls. You can earn the offer three times so ideally you’d buy three $100 gift cards and get $60 back in statement credits. You don’t even have to go to the mall just yet to even buy it – you can buy it online and then use it when you do head out.The second offer is great if you are looking to replace some lighting, doing some renos etc. as you can earn a one time $50 credit when you spend $250 or more at Robinson Lighting & Bath. (Why couldn’t they have had this 5 years ago when we did a big reno and spent some a good chunk of change at Robinson!)If you are eligible you’ll find both offers in your Amex account for you to register for…

The cards Rewards Canada recommends to replace the devalued Capital One Aspire Travel World Elite MastercardLast week news broke that one of the best long running travel rewards cards in Canada was being devalued. That card is the Capital One Aspire Travel World Elite Mastercard and although it hasn’t been available to new customers for nearly three years now, those who did have the card were able to keep it and continue earning and burning on it like before with it’s 2% return on all spending and the 10,000 point anniversary bonus being grandfathered in. That 2% and 10,000 points made it worthwhile for the majority of cardholders to keep the card in their wallets but that has changed now.As reported last week the card will be devalued as of August 5. The earn rate will drop to 1.5% which is still respectable however in the grand scheme of looking at the whole picture of what cards provide and how the competitors ramp up against the card it makes the card weaker. Then by taking away the 10,000 point anniversary bonus cardholders are losing out on a $100 value – which many competitors offer in another form…
