Brim World Elite MasterCard: Earn $500+ in First Time Bonuses + FYF

Updated on Sep 20, 2022: I just received 500 points (value $5) from Brim Financial as a birthday bonus! BTW, Brim World MasterCard is no longer listed on the website. I am not sure if it is permanent or not. Brim WEMC is still good. 


Updated on Aug 30, 2022: Brim World Elite MasterCard annual fee is $199, and you can earn 2% 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 $500+ in First Time Bonuses. Offer is valid until Sep 30, 2022. If you want to apply it, please use our referral code, thanks: 97068 (or referral link: https://brimfinancial.com/?code=97068). You will earn additional $10 bonus.

Expiry: Sep 30, 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.

Aeroplan Expiry Extension

 

Air Canada announced that they have extended the pause on expiry of Aeroplan points until May 31, 2023 – meaning that between now and May 30, 2023, any Aeroplan points which would have expired will not.  Effective May 31, 2023, the normal Aeroplan expiration policy will once again apply meaning points will expire if an eligible transaction has not been completed within the 18 months prior to this date.

As a reminder, for members who do end up expiring (after May 30, 2023), as part of Air Canada policy, Aeroplan will reinstate all their points if they fly with Air Canada or if they get an Aeroplan co-brand credit card via one of our partners TD, CIBC, American Express or Chase, within 6 months of the day the points expired.
