The Scotia Momentum Visa Infinite 4% Cash Back Credit Card

The Scotia Momentum Visa Infinite has been a favorite among cash back loving Canadians for a while now, but there were two big things stopping many of us, including myself, from applying for one.

  • There are categories for earning cash back, as opposed to a flat rate across all spending.
  • No sign up bonus for applying, so why switch?

However, with the recent MBNA de-valuations, now might be the perfect time for the switch. Keep reading » about The Scotia Momentum Visa Infinite 4% Cash Back Credit Card

Starwood Preferred Guest Program Review

 SPG and Marriott Rewards Combined Loyalty Program Review

With all the drama Aeroplan has been going through these past few months…

Many consumers are starting to rethink their travel rewards program.

Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG), which has recently been acquired by Marriott Rewards and is now part of a unified program, is an incredibly flexible travel rewards program that allows consumers to earn points to use on either their next hotel stay or a plethora of other attractive rewards.

‘Money Master the Game’ Review

‘Money Master the Game’ Review

Tony Robbins seems like he knows a few things about confidence, health, and mental and spiritual growth.

But does he know anything about money?

I bought Money: Master the Game by Tony Robbins about three years ago and it sat on my bookshelf for just as long. (I just looked at it, hoping that I could absorb 600 pages of information through osmosis.)

Originally, my friend, Greg, had recommended the book to me. He was in the process of buying his sixth or seventh new income property when he had read the book and started raving about it.

This seemed like a strong recommendation from someone who knows his stuff, so I took his word for it. He said he had learned some simple, but important investment principles, and he was using them to to his advantage.
