Paytm: 2% Cashback on Bill Payments

Expiry: Sep 26, 2017

Did you miss the Paytm 3% cashback offer last week? No worries. A new Paytm promotion is just released. If you use the promo code “TWO4YOU”, you can get 2% cashback (or $30) on all bill payments made by linking your bank account and/or Paytm Cash. You can use this promo code for your next three bill payments. This offer is valid until September 26, 2017.

From my point of view, this is a good offer (not as good as the 3% offer last week, but still very good), because the 2% return is higher than most credit cards in Canada.

If you are not a Paytm user now, you can download the Paytm App from your App Store and register use our Promocode: PTM8933000 . You can get $10 credit from Paytm by using this code. The $10 credit will show up "On Hold" in your Paytm account until you pay your first bill (> $25). We will get $10 credit too. Thanks for using it.

HSBC Fee Changes, effective Nov 20, 2017


HSBC will increase their bank services fees, effective Nov 20, 2017 (please read the pic above). Only one good thing for the client is that HSBC will not charge any Interac e-Transfer fee after Nov 20.


Anyway, I don't like HSBC and don't have any services with them. For the daily bank services, our Canadian 5 big banks are still better than HSBC. I think the only HSBC bank service I like is the HSBC Premier World Elite MasterCard (pic above is from one of my friends). But I am not qualified for that......

Paytm: Get up to 100% Cashback on all bill payments

Deal Link: https://www.paytm.ca/upto-100-cashback/
Expiry: Sep 17, 2017

Last week, we introduced the Paytm new ability to send and receive money through the Paytm Canada app: http://www.canadianrewards.net/2017/09/paytm-send-money-to-friends-and-family.html I think Paytm really wants all people to link their bank accounts to Paytm and add money to Paytm Cash. Because Paytm currently has a new promotion.

It is called “Upto 100% Cashback” Contest, which is sponsored by Paytm Labs Inc. (the “Sponsor”) and will open on September 11, 2017 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (“EST”) , and close on September 17, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. EST (the “Entry Period”).

For one week, everyone will get 3% cashback. In addition, 5 potential winners will be selected in a random drawing occurring on September 25, 2017 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada from among all eligible entries received during the Entry Period in accordance with the Official Contest Rules to received an additional 2% cashback (amounting to cashback of 5%). One (1) potential winner will be selected in a random drawing occurring on September 25, 2017 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada from among all eligible entries received during the Entry Period in accordance with the Official Contest Rules to received an additional 97% cashback (cumulative adding up to be 100% Cashback).

To get entries for this contest, you need to make bill payments using your Paytm Cash and your personal banking account 【not linked credit card】with the promo code PAYTMCASH. Credit card transactions are not applicable.

This is a very good offer. 3% is higher than almost all the credit card returns. I will take this opportunity to link my bank account and pay bills (the more the better) during this week.

BTW, please do not forget this following special promotion for Canadian Rewards readers. Paytm will offer $10 Cashback on the first send money transaction done by a Canadian Rewards reader. The users have to ensure the following:
  • Do a send money transactions that's are more than $30. It needs to be their first send money transaction.
  • This cash back will be given to a valid individual person. No duplicate accounts :-)
  • Mention "#JustPaytm" in the optional message so that Paytm can identify
  • Offer valid until September 15th, 2017

If you are not a Paytm user now, you can download the Paytm App from your App Store and register use our Promocode: PTM8933000 . You can get $10 credit from Paytm by using this code. The $10 credit will show up "On Hold" in your Paytm account until you pay your first bill (> $25). We will get $10 credit too. Thanks for using it.
