Wealthsimple Trade Referral Program


Updated on May 12, 2022: Markets can move fast. So, Wealthsimple Trade now provides unlimited price alerts for free. With price alerts, you can set custom notifications for any stock, crypto, or ETF you’d like to watch. Translation: you can now ditch the separate apps to keep tabs on the market.

Updated on Oct 9, 2021: If you want to open a new Wealthsimple Trade non-registered personal account, please use our referral link (or sign up code: QAZA3G), thanks: https://my.wealthsimple.com/app/public/trade-referral-signup?code=QAZA3G . You will earn the cash equivalent of TWO random stocks (average value ~$30). And you will have your own referral link after registration. If you like a TFSA / RRSP account, you can sign up it after you receive the referral bonus. Due to regulatory restrictions, Quebec residents will not qualify to receive a randomized stock bonus. Instead, Quebec residents will get the cash equivalent of a fixed stock worth no less than $20 based on the stock value at the time of selection. 


Wealthsimple Trade is Canada's first $0 commission stock trading app. Wealthsimple Trade lets you buy and sell thousands of stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on major Canadian and U.S. exchanges with $0 commissions on any trades. And you can start trading as little as $1. Note: Wealthsimple Trade is NOT Wealthsimple Invest. Wealthsimple Invest is an automated investing service that manages your investments for you using a personalized portfolio of low-fee ETFs. From my point of view, I like Wealthsimple Trade most.

How to buy Bitcoin in Canada

Updated on May 11, 2022: Added introduction on Netcoins platform.

Updated on Apr 9, 2022: I am not asking you to buy Bitcoin or any cryptocurrencies here. Cryptocurrencies investment has very high risks.

If you want to open a new Netcoins account, please use our referral link: https://netcoins.app/r?ac=13S8HS , and you can earn $60 when you make your first trade of CAD $100 cryptocurrencies. Thanks for your support.
____________________________________________________


Bitcoin price is around USD $40,000 on Jun 16, 2021. Some friends asked me recently how to buy Bitcoin in Canada. So, I would like to introduce the options for Canadians to buy bitcoin today. Note: I am NOT recommending or suggesting that you should buy those cryptocurrencies, and you should always do your research to make informed investing decisions. All I provide here is just an introduction of the workflow. From my point of view, I prefer Shakepay and Newton exchange platforms.

Deal Link: https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/home/aeroplan/promotions/status-requalification-cc.html#/

Expiry: Nov 30, 2022

In 2021, Air Canada extended Aeroplan Elite Status for members until the end of 2022 to provide certainty in challenging times. Here’s a special offer to maintain your Aeroplan status through 2023. Members who earn 30,000 points through an Aeroplan Co-brand credit card by November 30, 2022, will have their Status extended through December 31, 2023.

Further details:

  • No registration is required.
  • Offer period is January 1 to November 30, 2022 (points earned since January 1st are eligible).
  • Applies to existing Aeroplan Elite members who are also the Primary Cardholder of an eligible cobrand credit card.
  • Non-cardholders can participate in this offer if they open an account and earn the required number of points.
  • Earn can be combined through multiple cards if members hold more than one Aeroplan co-brand credit card.
  • Eligible spend by secondary cardholders will also count towards the eligible minimum earn requirement of the Primary cardholder.
  • Eligible Earn includes base and category accelerator earn of Aeroplan points on your eligible Aeroplan Co-branded Credit Card.
  • Exclusions: Welcome bonuses, acquisition bonuses or conversion points are excluded from counting as earn for this offer.
  • All Aeroplan cobrand cardholders are eligible for this offer.
  • Elite Status Extensions will begin in June 2022, for members who already met the offer requirement. Please note, it may take up to 8 weeks for the status extension to be processed after the earn requirement is met. While Air Canada strive to expedite the Elite Status Extensions for all eligible members, this may result in a temporary loss of status for some eligible members in January 2023 while their extension is being processed.

 For example, with a Premium card such as the American Express Aeroplan Reserve Card:

  • Spend $24,000 on any purchase for 30,000 points (all purchases earn a minimum of 1.25x)
  • Spend $5,000 with Air Canada (15,000 points at 3x), $5,000 with dining/food delivery (10,000 points at 2x), and $4,000 with any other purchase (5,000 points at 1.25x) for an equal total of 30,000 points
  • Both would extend an elite status up until December 31, 2023

 Or, with a Core card such as the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite card:

  • Spend $30,000 on any purchase for 30,000 points (all purchases earn a minimum of 1x)
  • Spend $5,000 with Air Canada (7,500 points at 1.5x), $10,000 with gas / grocery (15,000 points at 1.5x), and $7,500 with any other purchase (7,500 points at 1x) for an equal total of 30,000 points
  • Both would extend an elite status up until December 31, 2023

Brim World MasterCard: Earn $300+ in First Time Bonuses + FYF

Updated on Apr 30, 2022: Brim World MasterCard annual fee is $99, and you can earn 1.5% cash back with this card. For now, Brim World MasterCard will be waived for the first year of membership. This offer is only available to new Brim cardholders. Offer subject to change at any time. Annual fee waiver may take up to two billing cycles to appear on your account. And you can also earn $300+ in First Time Bonuses. Offer is valid until May 31, 2022.

Expiry: May 31, 2022

Brim World Elite MasterCard is a very good credit card with $199 annual fee. It will not charge any foreign transaction fees on purchases in another currency, online or abroad. And you can get free global Wi-Fi provided by Boingo and premium insurance coverage.


You can earn 2% back in Brim Rewards points when you use Brim WEMC for purchases (for example, in Costco). In addition to the 2%, you can also get extra points through InCard offers and eShop offers in the Brim app. And you can also earn 2X the points on all payments with Amazon, Spotify and Netflix, which is 4% back with Brim WEMC.


For now, Brim WEMC annual fee of $199 will be waived for the first year of membership. This offer is only available to new Brim cardholders. Offer subject to change at any time. Annual fee waiver may take up to two billing cycles to appear on your account. And you can also earn $500+ in First Time Bonuses. 

Some of our readers told me that if you call Brim at the end of the 1st year, Brim may only charge you $99 annual fee for the Brim WEMC for the 2nd year. Honestly speaking, $99 annual fee for a 2% cash back MasterCard is not a bad deal. Brim may even waive your Brim WEMC annual fee for the 2nd year, if your 1st year card spending is high.

Brim Financial has a referral program. When you refer your friends to open a Brim MasterCard, you will earn 2000 points ($20 value) for every friend that successfully signs-up and activates card. Then your friends will receive 1000 points ($10 value) when they activate.

If you need a referral code, please use ours, thanks: 97068 (or referral link: https://brimfinancial.com/?code=97068)


Updated on Dec 1, 2021: Brim MasterCard is the first in Canada that can be live in your Apple wallet instantly. You can start using your new digital card with Apple Pay within seconds of submitting your application. 


Updated on Jan 24, 2022: Brim's Installment Pay is a feature that allows you to divide purchases over $500 into smaller monthly payments. Brim charges 0% interest on this service. But Brim charges a fixed installment fee (7% of the overall purchase price) to your first statement. Your monthly payments thereafter are simply the original purchase price divided by the number of months you have chosen to install over, plus a monthly processing fee of 0.475% of the original purchase price. Brim's Installment Pay plans range from 12 to 24 months. You can choose what works best for you. You can call Brim Services at 1-886-305-2746 to cancel your installment plan if you want to pre-pay your installment plan. BTW, Brim's Installment Pay program is not available in Quebec now.


BTW, if anyone wants to leave his/her referral code below, please use the following format ONLY: "My Brim Financial referral code is: *******." Other format will be deleted. Thanks.
