PointsNerd reader David B, gave me a heads up minutes ago that the Capital One Aspire Credit Card is no longer available in Canada and will not be offered in the future.

Going to the Capital One website confirms this terrible news.

This is further confirmed by Patrick Sojka of RewardCanada

What To Do

If you already have the Capital One Aspire card, do not cancel it.  It is too valuable of a card to have and if you cancel it, you will never get it back.

If you do not have the card, check back on the blog in a week or two as I am hoping to have a much more comprehensive credit card comparison up and running so you can find an adequate replacement.

    • Hi Deb,

      If you were approved, you will receive the card. Typically with these situations, you will have at least a year’s worth of utility before they decide to pull the card in its entirety. Not saying that that will happen, just that you can usually expect a minimum of a year’s use once you get the card. Hope that helps. Cheers


  1. Personally, I’d suggest the BMO world elite. Doesn’t get much love because there aren’t referral bonuses, and the signup bonus is “only” $200, so not as great for churners.

    BUT, where this card shines is that you can get it for FREE with no annual fee.

    How you ask? If you are a BMO customer and sign up for their premium banking plan, the cost of this card is waived! Now, the premium banking plan comes with a hefty $30/mo fee. But *that* fee can be waived with a minimum $6000 balance in your account.

    Not for everyone, but works for me..
