TD Rewards is obviously TD Bank’s travel loyalty program, but not many people are familiar since it’s overshadowed by Aeroplan. It seems odd that Aeroplan would get more attention, but the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card is one of the most popular travel credit cards, so it shouldn’t be a huge surprise. As far as…

American Express Membership Rewards Guide | How to maximize your points

In my opinion, the American Express Membership Rewards program is the best bank travel rewards program in Canada. They’re highly flexible and the points are valuable.
