Whether you like shopping in bulk or not…

Costco has something for everyone.

Great prices on books, some of the cheapest veggies in town, an unbeatable return policy…

And even if you’re only going for the Saturday munchies, if you’re anything like me, it’s hard to leave without spending at least $100.

No matter what you’re buying at Costco, make sure you’re earning valuable rewards on ALL of those purchases.

Shopping at Costco? You need a Mastercard

Finding the best card for Costco is important to a lot of people.

We want our oversized Costco sheet cake, with our credit card rewards on top.

Costco only takes credit cards that are part of the Mastercard network – thus eliminating about half the credit cards in Canada – and although we thought we had it figured out, another bank has come along to throw their name in the ring.

And the award goes to…

Surprised?

We sure are.

But BMO has recently made some changes to the , are we’re pretty darn giddy about it.

This card was already the best AIR MILES card in Canada, and, friends… it just got better.

All the exciting details

The , already had a lot of really great things going for it.

And now, if you can believe it, this card is even better.

For starters, BMO is waiving the annual fee for the first year.

Anytime you can get a premium credit card for no annual fee, it’s something to get excited about.

Secondly, BMO is increasing the sign up bonus from 2,000 AIR MILES miles, to 3,000 miles – a 50% increase!

With this sign-up bonus, cardholders will have enough AIR MILES in their account to earn them 2 short-haul flights right off the bat, not a bad way to start things off.

Plus up to $300 travel bonus.
Ends October 25th.

The changes don’t end there

The isn’t the only card that BMO has decided to update.

Although the updates aren’t nearly as impressive, the and the both are changing for the better.
