You are currently viewing Example of the exclusive travel rewards offers by using Flytrippers links

We always appreciate it when you use Flytrippers links, it’s always at least at absolutely no cost to you… but sometimes better even. We never took the time to explain that it can be even better than “just” at no cost, too — because sometimes you get exclusive offers using our links.

Here are the details of how it’s a win-win, with a recent example and a current example.


Overview of the benefits of using our links

By using Flytrippers links:

  • You help us create more content to help you save
  • You can compare the best credit cards in 1 place
  • You can click through to the offers effortlessly
  • You can rest assured they’re all official secure links
  • You always get an offer that’s at least as good as on the bank’s website
  • You sometimes get even better exclusive offers (sometimes nearly $1000 more)

By the way, it’s not necessarily just for travel rewards. We appreciate it when you use all the links on our site, even for travel booking tools for example.

And for credit cards specifically, you can get much better offers on our site!

Because banks know:

  • That they are competing with all the other banks on our site
  • That independent experts like Flytrippers will really just recommend the best deals
  • That savvy consumers who compare sometimes need to a better deal to be convinced

And it’s really extremely easy:

  • Just click on the card link from our website
  • Everything is automatic
  • You apply on the same secure bank site
  • But it will be tracked if you clicked on our link


Recent example of an exclusive offer (NBC)

To give a concrete example, the recent National Bank World Elite Mastercard offer (now expired) was one of the best in Canada for many travelers.

(Sign up for our fre newsletter specifically about travel rewards to never miss the best deals and to get a ton of tips!)

The offer gave you up to 70,000 points through the Flytrippers link.

As you could see when you got to the application page via our link, it did say “Exclusive promotion.”

If you unfortunately went to the National Bank website directly, you would get an offer that gave you up to just 40,000 points. 

(A pretty big difference; literally hundreds of dollars less!)

Even better: for a few months, our exclusive 70,000 point offer (with 1st year free) was even more different because, on the National Bank site directly, there was no welcome bonus at all (and the 1st year wasn’t even free)!

A difference of almost $1000 if you were to maximize the full welcome bonus (the bonus was in 3 separate parts with this offer).

No, there was no offer at all for those who sadly went to the bank’s website directly!

Current example of an exclusive offer (CIBC)

Same thing for the current offers on the CIBC Aventura Visa Infinite Card and the CIBC Aventura Gold Visa Card

With our Flytrippers links, you get 40,000 points for free (and 4 airport lounge passes of course).

But by going to the bank website directly, you only get 35,000 points.

It’s not a nearly $1000 difference like it was with the recent offer on the National Bank World Elite Mastercard, but it still gives you more points extremely easily. And it allows you to support Flytrippers for free!


How to use our Flytrippers links

In short, you never get a worse deal by going through our Flytrippers links.

And you might even get a better one.

Either way, you’re allowing Flytrippers to continue to provide you with plenty of free content and tips, to help you travel for less!

For those of you who are wondering how it works or what to do, it’s really not complicated: you just click on any link on the Flytrippers website and everything is automatic.

For example, if you want to apply for the CIBC Aventura Visa Infinite Card or the CIBC Aventura Gold Visa Card, you clock on those links right there and then you click on the big blue button anywhere on Flytrippers’ card page.

If you close the page without finishing your card application, you obviously need to go through our link to go back! Simply click on our link once again and start over.

If you go to the bank website directly, you cannot get the exclusive offers and you let the bank keep more money (they have plenty).

(And obviously, it’s 2023, so never apply for a credit card anywhere but online. In-branch offers are often worse than even those on the bank’s website directly. Banks probably assume that people who still apply in person in 2023 may be more likely to be among the group that doesn’t really compare, is less informed, and therefore doesn’t need as big a welcome bonus to be convinced to get the card!)


How to find our Flytrippers links

To find our links, you can bookmark our ranking of the best credit cards.

It’s where you should always start anyway if you want to be a savvy traveler, to compare all the current offers.

If you don’t save it, it’s also easy to remember the link.

You can also always access it via the site’s main menu at the top (whether on your phone or your computer). Under the “Resources” tab, the first option is “Travel credit cards”.
