What's your favourite Credit Card and why?

Postby honkonbobo » Feb 10th, 2018, 10:32 am

I have a few credit cards, but i''m thinking of cancelling and going with another. Are their any good promotions going on? What are your favourite rewards programs. I like the CT card for getting CT money. I use that currently. My second card is at PC and will cancel this one if warranted... maybe for THortons?

Thanks for sharing, and don't forget to pay off your balance monthly... ha ha.

Costco because it pays $100/month in cash back.

You would have to spend a pile of money to get that much back!

We have a Visa Avion that we use the points for travel and a Costco MC.
If I agreed with you then we would both be wrong!

We have the PC MasterCard. When I had my business and was getting their fuel as well as using it for business expenses we were getting $20 off per week in groceries.

Yup.

I used to have Tangerine but switched because they went from 1% cashback to 0.5%.

Amex Gold pays reward points (X4 for groceries and gas) that are really easy to use for paying for travel, and in addition provides travel health insurance, car rental insurance, air flight cancelation insurance, etc. There is an annual fee, but it is reasonable given all the perks, and there is no interest charged on purchases when you pay off your balance monthly.
