Credit cards are most likely the easiest way to earn miles without flying. Actually, scratch that, credit cards are THE EASIEST WAY to get miles and fly for only taxes whether it’s short-haul hops or international first class.
I am going to do a very long series on the valuation of miles and points and thus on the value of credit cards. Here is a list of all the credit cards in Canada that earn different types of miles and points. I would like your opinion with how to approach this topic – would you like a post on each credit card, or on each issuer, or on each type of mile? Head for Points in my opinion has a really good approach which covers a similar (limited) credit card marketplace for UK residents.
Right now, I’m definitely trying to define my approach towards credit cards (and naturally affiliate links) and your feedback is always welcome. Most of the flexible rewards/cashback cards are not listed as I have selected the best card in those fields and those make applying for those weaker cards redundant. So these are all the cards that are relevant and that I am planning to write about. Please tell me in the comments if I’m missing any cards that are of importance (Canadian Cards only!). I am definitely not as good with Air Miles and flexible reward Canadian credit cards, so I may have missed some. This page will likely be a sticky page at the header on the top once I’m done with this series, so it’ll be a good reference page.
That concludes the very limited list of credit cards I think you should be considering! Reviews coming soon!
