Our Review

On the surface, the RBC Rewards Visa Preferred doesn’t seem like the greatest card. Fairly high annual fee, small sign-up bonus, and not the best return on your rewards. However, if net annual rewards aren’t really what you’re looking for, and you tend to look a little deeper, this card could be a contender.

With an annual fee of $110, you'll start off with a welcome bonus of 2,500 points (worth $25) and then earn 1 RBC Reward point for every $1 spent. Plus, when shopping with RBC partners like Carlson Wagonlit and UBER, you can earn even more.

These flexible rewards be used for:

  • merchandise,
  • gift cards, and…
  • RBC Financial Rewards (like personal loans, mortages, etc.)

They can also be transferred to WestJet dollars as well.

One of the best things about this card is its insurance package – you're covered by 11 different types of travel and purchase insurance, including up to 31 days of emergency medical coverage.

If you want to add secondary cardholders, the annual fee for supplementary cards is $40 per card. One cool perk is you're able to set a sending limit on each of those cards, allowing you to stay on top of your account.

If you'd prefer a Visa with better rewards and also no income requirements, the is a good choice. Earn up to a 1.5% return on your day to day spending, and get a 2.5% return on travel purchases made at Expedia For TD. Plus, this card has a lower annual fee of $89.
