June 02, 2015 08:15 ET Announces Winners of The Best Cash Back Credit Cards in Canada for 2015

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 2, 2015) - released its Best Cash Back Credit Card Rankings in Canada for 2015. Winners were selected and evaluated based on cash back earned, transparency of the cash back program, simplicity, perks, and fees.

Whether you're looking for a simple no annual fee rewards card, an easy to understand flat cash back rate, or big savings on every day purchases on gas, groceries, restaurant and drug store spend, Canadian issuers are creating an increasingly diverse portfolio of cash back credit card offers that meet the needs of a wide range of Canadians looking for rewards from their credit card spend.

"Cash back credit cards are the fastest growing rewards segment in the Canadian credit card market," said Marc Felgar, Founder of "They're simple to understand, offer great value and redeeming is hassle free. Cardholders love them."

With 5% promotional cash back periods, unlimited 1.75% flat cash back rates, annual fee waivers, and insurance coverages and perks rivalling those of travel cards, Canadian cash back cards are richer and easier to use than ever. In fact, the best cash back cards can earn $365 more than an underperforming cash back card, for the same spend, making finding the right card well worth the effort.

"The newest cash back cards are simpler and more transparent than ever before, with no spending limits, earning caps, tiers or categories. For many who don't travel, or who are tired of checking flight redemption charts, calling in to redeem their points or getting stuck with surprise booking fees, cash back cards offer a great alternative, even for the big spender," said Felgar.

To measure the value of each cash back credit card, GreedyRates checked how much cash back was earned for 5 different spend levels. GreedyRates took into account earning caps, annual fees and welcome bonuses.
