A year ago, the Alaska MBNA Mastercard, which offers 25,000 Alaska points on sign-up with a $75 annual fee, which I have written extensively about, used to have a $60 rebate with Great Canadian Rebates (GCR).

When folks asked GCR when it will come back on the list for rebates, the response was typically “in a month”… which went on for many, many months.
Recently, MBNA changed their back-end computer system from the original Bank of America software to the TD software. That conversion brought a lot of glitches, especially with online access. However, over the past month, I've experienced a number of rather serious issues.
