Paymi Review - Get cash back for shopping at retailers with any of your regular credit cards Paymi is a new-style rewards program similar in vain to Drop Rewards and Ampli that “focuses on putting cash back into consumers’ pockets”. When members make purchases with Paymi partners—whether in-store or online—they are automatically credited with cash back for their purchases. It gives consumers the benefits of a credit card rewards program, without being locked into using any single credit or debit card, and without requiring either codes or coupons. It also co-exists with any other reward programs, which means that members can “triple-dip”: getting rewards from their credit card, from the retailer, and from Paymi.Sign up features – $5 for joiningBecause Paymi is a new kind of service, instead of a traditional credit card rewards program, there are no specific rewards for signing up.

January 14 Update: Amex Platinum AIR MILES now coding correctly for Tim Hortons reloads, Amex Centurion & Escape Lounge open in Phoenix, StayVancouver Visa Reward Card offerThanks to Rewards Canada reader Harry B. for alerting us to an issue he encountered with his American Express Platinum AIR MILES Credit Card. The card as many of you know underwent some changes last November (read about them here) and one was the enhanced earning of 1 AIR MILE Reward Mile per $5 spend on eats and drinks. He noticed that when he went to reload his Tim Hortons card online those transactions were not being awarded the 1 mile per $5 but rather the base earn rate. He had no luck with Amex customer service so he reached out to us to let us know. We reached out to our Amex contacts and are happy to report that American Express has fixed this issue: (we) have now made the necessary updates to ensure Amex Platinum Air Miles Cardmembers will receive 1 AM for every $5 made at Tim Hortons, whether it’s online or in store.Last week saw the newest American Express Centurion Lounge open up in Phoenix. This lounge is in Terminal 4 where both Air Canada and WestJet fly out of so this is great news for the whole slew of Canadians who escape to the PHX area! We’ll be travelling their later this year and will provide a review (as long there is space in the lounge as they are extremely popular and tend to get crowded…
