I know of a few that have been Grandfathered. I was wondering if there are more:
- ECHO Mastercard 1.5% Cash Back - National Bank - Grandfathered. Old, no AF (annual fee). New applications, 30-dollar AF
-SimplyCash™ Preferred Card from American Express - Grandfathered. Old, 79 AF. New applications, 99-dollar AF
Capital One Aspire Cash World - Grandfathered. Old, 20-dollar AF or at one time no AF. New card called Aspire Travel World Elite MasterCard. New applications, 100 AF.
Dead Grandfathered Cards:
MBNA Rewards World Elite MC - Old, no AF. New and now old applicants, 120 AF. This recent change and those that are upset about this inspired this thread
Chase Cards - Marriott and Amazon Visa. For a time, one couldn't apply to these cards well the current card holders could still use them. They no longer exist for anyone.
Devalued but didn't grandfather:
Tangerine MC. increased Fx fee. Downgraded %. Increased Fees
MBNA Rewards World Elite MC - downgraded %
Rogers MC - No Fx fee to extra points for Fx purchases. Changed % back. Down graded Insurances. Downgraded on two separate occasions
Simply Cash - Removed car rental insurance
Amex SPG - Some consider this a downgrade. I know it changed a lot. I didn't look to hard into it
BMO World Elite Mastercard - Downgraded %
Scotiabank Scene Visa - Downgraded %.
