Meridian Visa Infinite Cash Back Card

  • $99 annual fee (first year fee waived for a limited time)
  • $30 annual fee for supplementary cardholders
  • Earn 4% cash back on gas and grocery store purchases (on the first $25,000 in purchases, then 1% for all other purchases)

There is no specified end date for the first year fee waived, but it does say that it is limited time only:

  • First year free is a limited time offer and is activated after the first transaction. Annual fee will appear on initial statement and a credit will be applied on the second statement following the transaction. Meridian reserves the right to modify or withdraw this offer at any time without prior notice.

  • $99 annual fee
  • No annual fee for a supplementary cardholder
  • Earn 1.75% cash back for the first 6 months (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%. Because it is a special link only, I am uncertain how long it will be available for.
