Our Review

Are you looking for a low fee card that allows you to earn cash back rewards on all of your purchases?

The National Bank ECHO Cashback Mastercard has a lot going for it.

Earning cash back rewards

For start, this card is especially great if you spend a lot of your budget on gas, groceries, and online shopping.

For the first $25,000 you spend annually in these categories, you'll earn 1.5% cash back – that's up to $375 in cash back rewards annually, making the $30 annual fee completely worth it.

This is one of the only cards in Canada that will give you extra rewards for the shopping you do online. So, for the right person, this card is a great option.

Plus, all other purchases (including any spending category overages) will earn you 1% cash back.

Redeeming your cash back rewards

Another thing that really makes this card stand out is the fact that you can redeem your rewards anytime you want.

That's right, with this card, you don’t have to wait to redeem your rewards – as soon as you earn $25, you can start redeeming…which definitely isn’t the case for most cash back cards.

The perks of having an ECHO Mastercard

As if these great cash back rewards weren't enough, you'll also have peace of mind when you're making purchases since you'll have 2 types of purchases insurance coverage:

  • purchase protection, and
  • extended warranty.

And finally, as a Mastercard, the ECHO card also gives cardholders access to exclusive offers and experiences through Mastercard Priceless Cities.

You'll be able to shop, play, stay, and eat in cities like:

  • Montreal,
  • Toronto,
  • Paris, and
  • Miami.

What are your thoughts?

The creditcardGenius algorithm calculates an estimated dollar value for all rewards and bonuses by using a typical point value a person can realistically achieve by redeeming their rewards in a reasonably optimized way. The "Welcome Bonus" is the dollar value obtained by combining all one-time bonuses available to new cardholders within the first year. To qualify for the full bonus you may need to make purchases, meet minimum spending requirements, or complete special actions. Terms and conditions apply.
