Bonuses & Fees
Currently the welcome bonus on the CIBC Dividend® Visa* Card for Students is $60 cash back upon making your first purchase within the first four months as a cardholder.†
The card has no annual fee for both the primary cardholder and any supplementary cardholders.†
It’s a solid choice to keep open as a free primary or backup credit card, all while supporting the longevity of your credit history.
This is a digital-exclusive offer.
To be eligible for this offer, it must have been directly communicated from CIBC or from a partner/affiliate, and you must apply for the eligible card through the link provided by CIBC or the partner/affiliate.
This offer is reserved for you. Please don’t send it to anyone else. If you’ve opened, transferred, or cancelled another eligible card within the last 12 months, we may approve your application, but you may not receive this offer.
The CIBC Dividend® Visa* Card for Students offers the following earning rates:
- 2% cash back on eligible grocery purchases†
- 1% cash back on eligible gas, EV charging, transportation, dining purchases, and recurring bill payments†
- 0.5% cash back on all other eligible purchases†
With CIBC’s cash back cards, the primary cardholder may redeem cash back at any time during the year, provided they have a minimum cash back balance of $25 at the time the redemption request is made.2
That’s a relatively flexible policy compared to other cash back credit cards on the market, some of which only allow you to claim your cash back earnings once a year.
