The Best Credit Cards for Earning Points

Prince of Travel β€’ September 2019

Below are the top credit cards on the Canadian market for the purposes of earning points via signup bonuses.

If you're looking for a new credit card for other purposes (like maximizing returns on daily spending, balance transfers, or low APR), then alternative products might be more suitable.

These are the best offers that are available publicly, via a referral link, or via a third-party offer. Some products will give me a referral benefit when you apply via my link, which helps support this website – please see my advertising disclosure for more information.
