Top Travel Credit Card Sign Up offers for May - These cards provide the best value out of their welcome bonusesHere are Rewards Canada’s Top Travel Credit Card Sign Up offers for the month of May 2022! 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 (welcome/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 some of these cards are first year free, they can and do pay off even when you grab them strictly for the sign up rewards.  A few shifts in the list this month. The biggest change is with the WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard as it no longer has a $0 companion voucher so the overall welcome bonus value has dropped. This means the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card moves back into the Top 5 and it has actually allowed a card that has never been part of any of these lists or rankings actually make it! That card is the RBC Cathay Pacific card which jumps into 9th spot! Remember you will find this list smack dab in the middle of the Rewards Canada homepage for easy reference! Here are our top credit card sign up offers for this month (in order of welcome bonus value, calculated as our minimum mile/points value for the program minus the annual fee)American Express® Aeroplan®* Reserve Card (Apply here) Up to 110,000 points – Minimum value: $1,051The new offer on this card sees 20,000 Aeroplan points awarded when you spend $3,000 on the card in the first three months…

A select few credit cardholders in Canada benefit from the exquisite benefits of a credit card known as the black card. You can’t apply for a black credit card – it’s invite-only, and the bar to qualify is set pretty high.
When most people bring up the black card, they likely refer to the American Express Centurion Card. While Amex doesn’t publish the cardholder requirements, it’s believed that you must have a 7-figure annual income, spend mid-six figures every year on a different American Express credit card, have a high net worth, and of course, have impeccable credit.
In this article, I’ll give you the lowdown on the Black cards offered by American Express and Luxury Card. I’ll also cover several other luxury credit cards, which act as “black card alternatives.” But first, if you are one of the privileged few to be selected for an Amex Centurian Card, here are some of the rumoured benefits you can expect to enjoy.
American Express Centurion
The American Express Black Card (Centurion) comes with a hefty $5000 one-time setup fee and a hefty $2500 annual fee for Canadian cardholders…
