Advertising Disclosure


Some credit card and promotional offers that appear on FrugalFlyer.ca are from companies through which we receive compensation. This compensation can take the form of a cash or points-based bonus which we receive for referring new customers through special URL links. 

Using these referral links and being part of affiliate networks makes it much easier to support our team of writers, and continue providing quality content. 

However it also puts us in a precarious scenario where we must balance financial incentives with the goals of the blog and fairness to our readers. To this end, Frugal Flyer abides by the following principles when it comes to content generation:

  1. Content will not be produced for the purpose of creating affiliate revenue.
  2. Compensation will not impact how and where products appear on the site (including the order in which they appear). 
  3. All opinions expressed will be the authors alone, not those of any bank, credit card issuer, airlines or hotel. 
  4. Where compensation is provided, full disclosure will be given.  

To conclude, we do certainly appreciate the use of our links by readers in cases where it makes sense for them to do so. We will continue to provide high quality, honest content regardless of compensation or lack thereof.  

The following credit card companies may provide compensation to Frugal Flyer: 

  • American Express
  • Chase
  • EQ Bank
  • HSBC
  • National Bank
  • Neo Financial
  • RBC Royal Bank
  • Scotiabank
  • Simplii Financial
  • Tangerine

We also have received compensation from the following companies who sell products that are not directly related to credit cards:

  • Airbnb
  • Borrowell
  • GreatCanadianRebates
  • Hotels.com
  • Plastiq
  • Rakuten.ca / Rakuten.com
