Times are tough for us travelers these days.
Lockdown has us all unable to travel… and spending more on food.
So put this time to good use: earn a lot of future free travel with the Cobalt Card.
That’s what I’m doing.
I have been a travel rewards enthusiast for over 10 years, and the American Express Cobalt is one of my favorite cards ever. It is simply the best card to earn a lot of rewards on your spending.

How the Welcome Bonus Works
Regular earn rate
You get 5% back on all food purchases. That’s the Cobalt Card’s regular earn rate.
So if you spend $500/month the first year, that will earn you a $300 travel credit from the regular earn rate.
The first year, you’ll get an extra $25 travel credit every month if you spend $500 in the month as a Welcome Bonus.
So with that same $500/month, you’ll earn an extra $300 travel credit from the welcome bonus.
Pro tip: instead of a net $480 travel credit, that same $500/month spending can get you 11 free nights in beautiful hotels in many amazing countries if you transfer to Marriott Points. That would be worth well over $1,000. See which hotels are eligible.
Take action now for future trips
You’re going to spend the money on groceries anyway. Might as well maximize the rewards you earn.
Join the thousands of savvy Canadian travelers who know this card is an absolute must-have.
