The Rewards Canada Clash

Last Updated on April 5, 2022

Welcome to the the Rewards Canada Clash series!

What is the Rewards Canada Clash? It is head to head battles of Canadian credit cards and loyalty programs. Years ago we launched them as showdowns but that term seems to be used by everyone now so we moved to Clash - just like the 80's movie Clash of the Titans.
