No more MBNA Alaska MasterCard?

I cannot find the web page of MBNA Alaska MasterCard on MBNA Canada website (it was there yesterday). There is no more GCR bonus for this MasterCard either. If you search the https://www.alaskaair.com/, the Canada Alaska credit card page is also empty. So, I guess we may not be able to apply for this MBNA Alaska MasterCard anymore...

PS: A friend of mine just told me that right now you can still apply MBNA Alaska MasterCard through the phone (1-877-428-6060). If you want to get this card, please do it ASAP.

Updates: this card is back. Please see link:

Plastiq New Referral Program


Plastiq is a third-party service provider that offers additional payment methods, including credit cards. You can link your credit card to your Plastiq account and get credit card rewards through Plastiq payment. Normally, Plastiq charges a fee of 2-2.5% for this service.

Plastiq is introducing a new referral program. Here's how it works:
  • Share your referral link (above) with friends via email, social networks, and anywhere else you can think of.
  • Get rewarded in return for every person who registers with Plastiq via your referral link or code and they make payments totaling $500 or more (doesn’t have to be a one-time payment).
  •  For each awesome referral, you will be able to send $1000 through Plastiq without any fees (Plastiq called this FFDs: Fee-Free Dollars). That means if your next payment is $1000 or less, there will be no service fee, and any leftover credit will rollover to your next payment. If the payment is more than $1000, a service fee will only be charged on the dollar amount over $1000. Let's assume an average Plastiq service fee of 2%, then it means you can save $20 by one successful referral.
  • You friend will get 500 FFDs (value of $10).
These FFDs don’t last forever, though – your balance will be reset to zero 90 days after the last time you used or earned them.

Last but not least, my Plastiq referral link is as follows. Please use it if you want to register with Plastiq. Thanks.: https://try.plastiq.com/215391
