How to Apply for the National Bank World Elite MasterCard

If you travel internationally from Canada and often find yourself at Montreal Trudeau airport, you might want to consider the National Bank World Elite MasterCard. With this card, you and one guest get access to the National Bank World MasterCard Lounge at Montreal Trudeau airport with exclusive concierge service. Fancy eh? Travel rewards include up to 2.5 points per dollar in purchases and up to $250 each year in “savvy traveller” fee reimbursements on certain travel expenses. The APR is pretty high at 19.99% (APR is subject to change) and with that $150 annual fee, it may not be worth it unless you use this card enough to really benefit from the rewards program. If you would like to apply for the National Bank World Elite MasterCard, scroll down this page for our step-by-step guide.
