Top 5 Credit Card Sign Up offers for July - These cards provide some of the best value out of their welcome bonusesHere are the Rewards Canada Top 5 Credit Card Sign Up offers for the month of July 2020! This is not a ‘best’ credit card list like our Top Travel Rewards Credit Card rankings but instead a look at cards that have very good acquisition (welcome/sign up) offers. As always when choosing a card you should always take other factors into account other than the just sign up bonus, but when some of these cards are first year free, they can and do pay off even when you grab them strictly for the sign up rewards. This month we see three first year free cards on the list!For this month the list is the exact same as June’s list as there haven’t been any significant changes to the higher end welcome offers in our market. Do note the BMO World Elite Mastercard will see a change in a couple of days – for the better – so wait until Friday if you are considering it!
