According to the 2019 Canada Credit Card Satisfaction Study by J.D. Power, “customers who fully understand the benefits offered by their credit card issuer have significantly higher satisfaction levels compared with those who do not completely understand the benefits.”
Customers are more satisfied with their credit card when they fully understand how to redeem rewards and can easily access the information regarding their benefits.
The study suggests that cash back is the most popular reward, with 30% of customers choosing this option. The choice of airline tickets was a distant second, with 23% selecting the reward type.
