BMO Affinity Credit Card

Dear Members,

Bank of Montreal is ending the AFM/CFM MasterCard Affinity Program. This is due to low participation rates and their program now only accepts larger organizations with a minimum of 50,000 Canadian members. Current AFM/CFM MasterCard accounts will still be active, so if you have that credit card you will continue on as a BMO client. There will be a switch from the AFM/CFM MasterCard to the BMO MasterCard. The following two changes may occur: Adjustment of interest rate and the issuing of a blank BMO MasterCard in replacement of the AFM/CFM branded card. 

The product types remain the same after the transition, with the exception of the "No Fee Cashback” product which actually increases to 1% cashback reward. Meanwhile, the interest rates will increase for both Retail Purchases and Cash Advances.
