File this one under: where was this promotion three months ago when I signed up for this card?

Great Canadian Rebates, my favourite website for saving money shopping online, has an awesome promotion on right now.  When you sign up for the Capital One Aspire Travel World MasterCard, already the top travel rewards card on the market, you’ll get a $75 cash back rebate.

Here’s how it works:

GCR Promo – Capital One Aspire Travel

First you’ll need to sign up for an account at Great Canadian Rebates.  If you’re not familiar with this website, Great Canadian Rebates is an online portal that offers cash back rebates on almost every purchase and hundreds of online coupons to merchants who will ship to Canadians.

The bottom line: you’ll earn cash back when you shop online with Great Canadian Rebates.

Once you’ve signed up, or if you already have an account with GCR, you can check out the Capital One Aspire Travel promotion here.

The Aspire Travel World MasterCard is the leading travel rewards card in Canada for a reason.  Here’s what you get with this card:

  • Earn 2 reward miles for every $1 – on all purchases
  • 10,000 bonus reward miles with your first purchase
  • $120 annual fee

Note: A requirement of this card is a minimum personal income of $60,000 or household income of $100,000.

  • Redeem for travel, cash, merchandise and gift cards
  • World MasterCard benefits, including Travel Emergency Medical Insurance and Trip Cancellation Insurance
  • Add an authorized user for $0

On top of all this – when you apply for the card through Great Canadian Rebates you’ll get an additional $75 cash back.  Let’s put this in perspective:

The 10,000 bonus reward miles is worth up to $100 in travel, or it can be redeemed for $75 cash back (75% of the value).

Add in the $75 cash back from Great Canadian Rebates and you’ll have earned up to $175 in rewards the first year – and that doesn’t even include the rewards you’ll earn from regular spending on the card!

If you spend $1500 per month on the card, or $18,000 per year, you’ll earn another 36,000 points.  That’s worth another $360 in travel for a grand total of up to $535 in your first year.

Final thoughts

Like I said, I wish this promotion was around a few months ago when I signed up for the Capital One Aspire Travel World MasterCard.  I’ve been using this card for all of my non-grocery- and gas spending since December and couldn’t be happier with it.

Now with this promotion from Great Canadian Rebates there’s no excuse not to sign up for the top travel rewards card in Canada and start earning big rewards.
