Top Cash Back Credit Card Offers for May 2019

Keep in mind that we also have an going Top Cash Back Credit Cards page which consists of permanent and temporary offers, while this post focuses on temporary offers only. I have broken down the temporary offers into two categories. But first, let’s continue with our newest theme of adding a featured card.

Key Highlights

I know I have been mentioning the featured card in my last few posts. But I realize that sometimes, it is too difficult to just talk about one card when there is a long list. So I am going to try something different on this post. I am going to mention key highlights for this month’s list.

Starting with the addition of the Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card card. I also dropped the Meridian Visa Infinite Cash Back Card which discontinued its 10% bonus offer, which leaves only the Scotia Momentum Visa Infinite Card and Simplii Financial Cash Back Visa Card to compete on 10% cash back offers.

Limited Time with No End Date

Simplii Financial Cash Back Visa Card

  • No annual fee
  • Earn 10% cash back on restaurants and bars (up to $500 in spending or within the first 4 months) 
  • Earn 4% cash back on restaurants and bars (after the 10% bonus offer expires)
  • Earn 1.5% cash back on gas, groceries, drugstore purchases and pre-authorized payments
  • Earn 0.5% cash back on all other purchases

This offer may be withdrawn or changed without prior notice at any time.

RBC Cash Back Preferred World Elite MasterCard

  • $99 annual fee
  • No annual fee for a supplementary cardholder
  • Earn 1.75% cash back on all purchases for the first 6 months (up to $25,000 in spending) (could be limited time)

There does not seem to be an expiry date on the 1.75% cash back bonus. However, on the main RBC website, it still shows that you can only earn 1.5%.
