Credit Cards for the NHL Playoffs

As an Ottawa Senators fan I am happy to say that this past Saturday on April 12, 2015, the Sens securely wins a spot in the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, a miracle we all thought was improbable. On the same day, Canadian Tire Centre supported the National Capital’s die hard fans by opening up the centre with free admission and parking to watch the game which will determine the team’s fate in the playoffs. As minutes ticked away to the end of period three, all fans in the Canadian Tire Centre stood on their feet to celebrate the Ottawa team’s victory.

This year, five of our Canadian teams have entered the Stanley Cup Playoffs: Ottawa Senators, Montreal Canadiens, Winnipeg Jets, Calgary Flames, and the Vancouver Canucks.

The line-up has been determined; the Ottawa Senators will be facing the Montreal Canadiens at their first game coming this Wednesday, April 15, 2015. If you’d like to show support for our Canadian teams in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs, you can also earn rewards at the same time (or use them for NHL merchandise redemption).

Scotiabank pushes out their ScotiaHockey NHL Visa Card, where you have the option of designing the cover of your credit card with your favourite hockey team’s logo.

Purchase NHL Hockey Merchandise:

If you’re an Aeroplan collector, now you can purchase NHL merchandise on the Aeroplan official website. Some items include the Original Six NHL Building Framed Print, redeemable for 19,500 Aeroplan miles; Montreal Canadiens Arena Framed Panorama, redeemable for 16,500 Aeroplan miles; Toronto Maple Leafs Framed Panorama Arena, redeemable for 16,500 Aeroplan miles.

For this post, I will not focus on the benefits of the card and whether or not it is worth signing up for. Ultimately, if you’re a die hard hockey fan, I would recommend signing up for one of these and keeping them as they make great souvenir items.

Time to support our Canadian teams.

Go SENS Go!
