The RBC Cash Back Mastercard is a basic credit card. It’s a fine entry-level choice to earn more rewards on groceries if you already bank with RBC and are looking to open your first credit card, but otherwise there’s limited appeal.
Currently, there is no welcome offer on the RBC Cash Back Mastercard.
There is no annual fee and supplementary cards are also free.
The RBC Cash Back Mastercard earns 2% cash back on groceries up to $6,000 and 1% on groceries above $6,000. Otherwise, it earns 0.5% cash back on non-grocery purchases up to $6,000 and 1% cash back on non-grocery purchases above $6,000.
This is a relatively weak offering, especially in comparison to the Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card, which allows you to earn 2% cash back in up to three categories (including groceries).
There are two ways to redeem RBC cash back:
The RBC Cash Back Mastercard offers a doubling of the manufacturer’s warranty up to one additional year as well as provides 90 days of purchase protection.
