Our Review

If you don’t meet the income requirements for the , the National Bank Platinum Mastercard could be a great compromise for you.

With an annual fee of $89, this card will give you a straight 1 point on every $1 you spend – no need to worry about tiers or caps. Plus, get 1 bonus point for any flights and vacation packages booked through À la carte travel.

The rewards you earn with this card are the same flexible rewards earned with the World and World Elite versions that can be used for a number of different things:

  • travel,
  • merchandise,
  • gift cards, and...
  • financial services.

When rewards are redeemed for travel through À la carte Rewards, you get a 1% return on your spending.

10,000 À la carte points = $100 in travel

For a card that has an annual fee of $89, a 1% return is not the best. However, this card has a few benefits that could really make that annual fee worth it for some.

For starters, this card has a really great insurance package.

You with get 10 types of purchase and travel insurance that includes some of the best purchase insurance in Canada – 180 days of purchase protection and 2 years of extended warranty – double what you would get with pretty much any other credit card.

As if that wasn't enough, this is one of the few credit cards in Canada that extended travel insurance past the age of 65. In fact, with this card you will be covered for 10 days of travel up until the age of 74.

Any other card that comes with insurance at this level also comes with a pretty high income requirement, making this card a great option if you don't have a 60K + income.
