However, there is now a new king, the Tangerine Money-Back card, with better features and rewards.
My long-time favorite for the best free cash back credit card in Canada was the MBNA Smart Cash card.
It has a high return on gas/grocery spending (2% up to $400/month), offers 1% otherwise and with a decent insurance offering (purchase protection, extended warranty, and car rental insurance).

That’s actually cheaper than doing non-package transfers to get 120,000 Southwest points, which would cost 340,000 points, and you get the hotel nights thrown in.

The Marriott and Hyatt options While Southwest won’t count points transferred from a non-Southwest credit card like a Chase Ultimate Rewards card for Companion Pass, it will count points transferred from hotel partners like Marriott and Hyatt into Southwest toward Companion Pass status.

Out of the top four cards above, this would equate to a cash back rebate of: If I was looking for a widely accepted free cash back credit card with a good return, there are four contenders, the Tangerine, MBNA, RBC and Capital One card. Since Capital One recently removed their 25% bonus, it really pushed the Tangerine and MBNA cards ahead.
