The card often overlooked and is not as prestigious as some of the premium travel credit cards on my list of best travel credit cards, but it’s a very good alternative for people not wanting a card with a high annual fee. With the $50 cash-back from Great Canadian Rebates, you can try the card for only $15 for the first year while getting over $200 worth or AIR MILES which makes it a very good offer in my opinion.
