    Thanks for the mention. That bug-out bag post has me thinking. I don’t live in earthquake territory, but I suppose there may be other reasons why everyone in our area would have to leave quickly.

    Rewards Cards
    I saw no mention of my favourite rewards card. Like those mentioned, this is a No Fee card. The Platinum Drivers Edge is offered by CitiBank but fully available for Canadians. You get 2% back on all purchases, but the money must be used for the purchase of a car. While this may not sound appealing, the great thing is that it can be used for any model, new or used. I have used it twice in that last 6 years, once for $1,500 and once for $4,500. You are only allowed to accumulated $1,000 a year i.e. spending limit is $50,000 to get rewards – after that I switch to another card. (Both my wife and I drive older used cars so we figure every 5 years one of us will need a new car.) Each time I have sent in the paperwork with the VIN etc. it takes about 10 business days and then there is a big fat cheque – cool.
