Credit card rewards come in many forms. From points to statement credits to cold-hard cash, a good rewards card maximizes on your everyday purchases and ultimately helps you save.
Reward credit cards generally offer different amounts of rebates for particular spending categories (gas, grocery, pharmacy purchases, etc.). And while there are so many options on the market, one distinctive feature between most rewards cards is whether it comes with an annual fee or not.
Cards with an annual service fee typically offer you more flexibility with a greater amount of cash-back or points for your purchases, whereas no-fee cards may offer a little less of a rebate with less opportunities to earn rewards.
That being said, there are still a number of great no-fee reward options. But how do you choose the card that will provide you with the most in savings?
To make the decision-making process easier, RateSupermarket.ca has a handy-dandy card comparison tool. And with all things considered, from sign-up bonuses to earning categories, we used our Best of Finance methodology to rank the cards that provided the most cash value…
Whether it’s rebating you in points, a statement credit, or cash-back in your bank account, a good rewards card maximizes on your everyday purchases and ultimately helps you save.
To determine which card will provide you with the most in savings, you must first evaluate your spending patterns to see which card caters best to your lifestyle.
Do you have a big family and find yourself constantly at the grocery store picking up items for dinner?
Or are you living your best life at the latest Instagram-worthy brunch spots every weekend?
Do you have the travel bug and spend a lot on flights and accommodations?
Or maybe your job requires you to do a lot of driving, and you’re stuck filling up the tank multiple times per week.
Rewards cards generally offer different amounts of cash-back for particular spending categories (gas, grocery, pharmacy purchases, etc.), and cash-back usually ranges anywhere from one to five per cent (if you’re getting less than one per cent in cash-back, please do us a favour and throw that card away)…
Let’s say your biggest monthly expense is gas; it’s a reality for a lot of people who maybe travel a lot for work or have a long daily commute. Or maybe you and the family go on a lot of road trips, or you just like long drives down country roads to “get away from it all.” No matter the case, you should capitalize on those trips to the pump with a good gas rewards credit card.
General rewards credit cards offer points or cash-back rewards for some spending categories (grocery, pharmacy purchases, etc.) But a great gas rewards card earns rewards on everyday purchases, while still maximizing on your fuel purchases specifically, and ultimately helps you save on gas or other types of merchandise in the long-run.
The best cards come with few restrictions as to where you can purchase your gas too. Problem is, with so many different cards on the market, how do you know which card will get you the most bang for your buck kilometres for your cash?

We all have that favourite superstore – the one that sells everything under the sun, from from car batteries and patio furniture to sports drinks and baby clothing.
And while we may spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars at these stores per year, it’s time to consider how you can get a return on loyalty.
Many stores feature loyalty reward cards that give you access to exclusive promos and discounts, but some department stores go as far as to offer reward credit cards, providing you with premium earning rates on loyalty points and cash-back.
General rewards credit cards may offer rewards for particular spending categories (gas, grocery, pharmacy purchases, etc.). But the best store credit cards earn rewards in-store and on other everyday purchases at other stores, giving you the flexibility to shop wherever you so please and redeem whenever you want.
Problem is, with so many different cards on the market, how do you know which card will ultimately save you the most?
