Get ≈ $744 in free travel in 3 easy steps

1. You get the American Express Cobalt Card (it currently has the highest welcome bonus in Canada)
There is no income requirement and the fee is only $156 (billed $12.99/month)

2. You spend $500/month for the first year in grocery stores (including gift cards for gas or other purchases) to unlock the bonus
You can use our 5 pro tips to reach that easily (or check out 3 other cards offering $600+ with lower spending requirements)

3. You use the welcome bonus for $900 off many flights by transferring your points to Aeroplan or Avios
A bonus of $900 minus a $156 fee is $744 in net value (you can also use the points for a $600 travel credit if you prefer simplicity)

Over $700 with just one welcome bonus might look too good to be true, but it really isn’t.

Turning the $156 card fee into that much travel is easy. All you need is to use your card for the spending you would normally do anyway… and pro tips on maximizing points.

You can read all the details below if you want to learn more about how it works…

But the bottom line is that this is simply an amazing deal that is one of Canada’s best-kept secrets.

I’ve taken advantage of it myself. It 100% works.

Thousands of other Canadian travelers who have been following Flytrippers’ travel tips for years have also taken advantage of this deal to travel more for less.

It’s pretty simple: most people either don’t know about this card, don’t know about Amex points, or just don’t know that you can maximize your points by transferring them to valuable airline rewards programs!

Hey! I'm Andrew, and I'm a professional globetrotter and travel rewards pro. My travel expertise has led me to appear in countless Canadian media outlets since we launched Flytrippers.

I personally earn way over $1,000 in travel rewards every year without spending a penny more than I would otherwise, and have been doing so for over 10 years.


I will be sharing my tips with you so that you too can travel more, for less!
