What type of rewards do you want to earn for every dollar you spend? Is cash back important to you? Would you prefer gift cards or store credit? What about free flights and hotels? Think about what's most important to you and what would help your budget the most, then look for the best cards to offer that reward. Do you have a preference of whether you want a Visa, MasterCard or American Express card? Select which network you'd prefer, or select "All" if you don't have a preference.
There are a number of lenders and companies that issue credit cards - and they aren't just financial institutions. If you would prefer to get a credit card from one specific credit card issuer, choose the one you want. Otherwise, select All banks. Most credit cards have a minimum credit score requirement. Select your credit score to filter your credit card results based on your credit score and which cards you are most likely to be approved for. If you aren’t sure what your credit score is, select “Not sure”, and your results will be filtered without taking your credit score in to account. There are many different credit card reward programs available. If you have a preferred reward program, such as Aeroplan Miles, select your choice using the dropdown. Note that each card only uses one reward program. Enter the dollar amount you spend each month on your credit card. Edit your monthly spend by each spending category in the 'monthly spending by category' tab below.

RBC credit cards overview

As Canada’s largest bank, RBC offers 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, RBC Rewards VISA Gold, RBC VISA Signature Rewards, RBC Cash Back MasterCard and the RBC RateAdvantage VISA.

The RBC VISA Infinite Avion credit card lets you collect loyalty reward points that can be redeemed for travel and merchandise. With the RBC Rewards VISA Gold and RBC VISA Signature Rewards cards, you can collect points towards merchandise, travel or gift cards. Interested in getting cash back instead of rewards points? The RBC Cash Back MasterCard has no annual fee and lets you earn cash back on your purchases. 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, 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, WestJet RBC MasterCard, British Airways VISA Infinite, and Cathay Pacific VISA Platinum let you earn rewards towards flights, hotels, vacation packages, car rentals and more.

RBC partnership credit cards can be great choices for a new credit card, if you will take advantage of the rewards and frequently shop at the select store or airline.
