May 14 Update: Some lifetime SPG Platinums will receive new Platinum Premier status, Top 5 Credit Card sign up offers & more
Good news for some lifetime SPG members (Mark L., I think you may qualify) – As you know the new combined Marriott Rewards-Starwood Preferred Guest program will have a lifetime Platinum Premier level that was only going to be awarded to the top of top Marriott Rewards lifetime members with no option for lifetime SPG Platinum members to achieve this level. There was lots of pressure from those high end SPG members and now Marriott has made a concession whereby lifetime SPG Platinum members will receive the new Platinum Premier level if they have 750 nights and 10 years of Platinum status. Also if you hit lifetime Marriott Platinum by the end of this year you will also be grandfathered into the lifetime Platinum Premier level. Once January hits there will be no way of acheiving Lifetime Platinum Premier.

Here are the Rewards Canada Top 5 Credit Card Sign Up offers for the month of May! This is not a ‘best’ credit card list like our Top Travel Rewards Credit Card rankings but instead a look at cards that have very good acquisition (sign up) offers. As always when choosing a card you should always take other factors into account other than the just sign up bonus, but when most or all of these cards are first year free, they can and do pay off even when you grab them strictly for the sign up rewards. In fact all of the cards on this list are first year free so you can try them out at no cost and decide later on if the card is right for you. All the while you earn the sign up bonus which can be used to subsidize your travels!No change once again this month in the cards in this Top 5 list. There does seem to be a bit of a lull right now in the market, just waiting for one of our banks to make the next big move.
