Best Current First Year Fee Waived Cards for May 2019

All the major TD promotions will be expiring (June 2, 2019) before the next monthly list comes out. Personally, I doubt that they will extend the promotions, they may be offering something else. So if you have been thinking about one of their cards, I would go for it sooner rather than later. I personally signed up for the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card as I could use an Aeroplan restock.

Otherwise, most of the other major promotions run until the end of June or October of 2019.

See the other two monthly lists on how we highlighted the featured card:

Limited time offers with no end date

For these cards, since there is no specific end date, it may very well terminate without notice.
