BMO Rewards: Redeem your points on any travel purchase for a limited time!

To the point Until September 30, 2022, BMO Rewards allows you to redeem your points for any travel purchase charged to your card!

15,000 points = $100 on any travel purchase

Usually, the best use of BMO Rewards points is through the BMO Rewards portal to book travel. You can use 15,000 points to get $100 off your trip:

  • Flights
  • Hotel booking
  • Rental cars
  • Cruises

Except this is when the BMO Rewards portal is working properly. This is not the case at this time.
