To be a World credit card cardholder, you must meet at least one of the following criteria:
Main cardholder’s gross annual income: $60,000 and above;
Combined gross annual income of main cardholder and any other cardholder: $100,000 and above.

The World credit card allows you to accumulate points at an accelerated pace.

Indeed, as the table below illustrates, during the 12-month reference period, for each dollar in purchases between $20,001 and $30,000 charged to your cardaccount, you’ll accumulate 0,5 additional point.

Net purchase volume2 over
12 months:
0 to $20,000 = 1.5 points per dollar in purchases
$20,001 to $30,000 = 2 points per dollar in purchases
$30,001 and more = 1.5 points per dollar in purchases

Accelerated point accumulation is calculated based on a period of 12 months from the date at which the account was opened.

You can redeem your points to obtain:

  • brand name products,
  • gift cards,
  • À la carte Extras,
  • a donation to a cause you hold dear.

You can also exchange your points for a travel discount, and use them to save on flights, packages, hotels, excursions, vehicle rentals, train tickets, etc. There’s no restriction related to dates or the choice of travel agency. It’s all up to you.

Points exchanged Travel savings
11,000 points $100
50,000 points $500
More than 50,000 points Above and beyond 50,000 points in the same transaction, every 10,000 points segment entitles you to an additional $100 travel discount.
