When Anita Clarke bought her first townhome in Toronto’s west end last year, she started researching insurance policies. The 47-year-old senior managing editor at Shopify previously had tenant insurance with a contents limit of $90,000.

So, there’s no better time to earn useful rewards and cash back to balance out the rising costs.

It also comes with benefits, like travel insurance and 24/7 concierge service—none of which will cost you a dime, since it has no annual fee.
