RBC credit cards overview
As Canada’s largest bank, RBC offers a mix of Visa and Mastercard credit cards for the diverse needs of Canadians, including some of the most popular loyalty rewards credit cards in Canada. RBC’s five most popular credit cards are the: RBC VISA Infinite Avion ($120 annual fee), WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard ($119 annual fee), RBC Cash Back Preferred World Elite Mastercard ($99 annual fee), the RBC Cash Back Mastercard ($0) and the RBC RateAdvantage VISA ($0).
The RBC VISA Infinite Avion credit card lets you collect loyalty Avion reward points that can be redeemed for travel from any airline of your choice and wide array of merchandise options. With the WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard, you'll collect between 1.5% to 2% in WestJet dollars that can be redeemed for free or discounted flights exclusively from the Canadian airline (with $1 WestJet Dollar equalling $1 in travel rewards). Both cards provide a suite of travel insurance perks, with the WestJet Card offering additional airline-specific benefits like a free round-trip companion voucher and free first-checked in bags when flying on WestJet.
Interested in getting cash back instead of rewards points? The RBC Cash Back Mastercard is an entry-level no annual fee card that lets you earn up to 2% cash back on groceries and 0.5% on most other everyday purchases. The RBC CashBack World Elite carries a $99 annual fee but earns a more lucrative 1.5% cash back on everything you buy.
If you want to avoid high interest rates, or if you sometimes carry a balance on your card, getting a credit card with a low interest rate, such as the RBC RateAdvantage VISA (which charges Prime + 4.99% - Prime +8.99%; depending on your credit rating), could also be a great choice for you.
RBC credit card partnerships
RBC has teamed up with select retailers to offer credit cards tailored to reward their loyal customers. RBC’s credit card partnerships include:
- The RBC Esso VISA for gas and auto rewards
- The WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard lets you earn rewards towards eligible flights or vacation packages provided by WestJet.
