Our Review

Canadian Tire's premium card offering, the Triangle World Elite Mastercard, offers great rewards, perks, and no annual fee.

It's a Canadian Tire Triangle card, so you'll be earning Canadian Tire Money on all purchases you make on the card.

What will you earn? Here's the breakdown:

  • 4% back at Canadian Tire stores, including Mark's Work Wearhouse, SportChek, and Atmosphere,
  • 3% back at grocery stores (up to $12,000 spent per year),
  • 5 - 7 cents per litre of fuel at Canadian Gas+ and Husky locations (depending on the grade of fuel), and
  • 1% back on all other purchases.

These are some great earn rates, but there's a couple of things to address.

The real earn rates

First, how much you earn at Canadian Tire stores. 4% back sounds great, but there are 2 things to consider:

  • it's earned on the pre-tax amount, and
  • includes what base Triangle Rewards members earn.

What this means is it's an inflated number compared to what other credit cards will earn.

The actual value is 3.19%, if you assume an average sales tax rate of 13% in Canada. It's still great, but not what's advertised.

As for the grocery store earn rate, 3% is great for a no fee card. But, it's capped at $12,000 per year (or $1,000 per month).

Plus the bonus earn rate doesn't work at Walmart Supercentres. Though Mastercard considers Walmart Supercentres to be grocery stores, Canadian Tire has specifically excluded them from earning 3%.

Some other perks

This card has a perk that's fairly rare on credit cards – roadside assistance. Just for having the card, you'll have the Canadian Tire Gold roadside assistance plan. You'll get to choose between covering any vehicle you drive or covering a specific vehicle. It's an annual value of $99.95 plus tax.

The card will also provide some limited insurance coverage. You can see the details by clicking on the insurance tab above.

And finally, if you make purchases over $200 at Canadian stores, you can request 12 months no fee and no interest financing on your purchase.

Alternatives to consider

There's a lot to like about the Triangle World Elite Mastercard. But if you want more rewards on everyday purchases, here are a couple of cards to consider in its place (or to pair with).

The also include TD Deluxe roadside assistance and will let you earn 3% cash back on gas, groceries, and recurring bill payments ($15,000 annually on each category), while earning 1% on all other purchases. It has an annual fee of $120.

Another top option is the . You'll see an increased grocery earn rate of 4% that also applies to recurring bill payments, earn 2% back on gas and transit, while earning 1% on every other purchase. It doesn't include roadside assistance, however, and the annual fee is also $120.
