Rogers took their credit cards from being completely "blah" to amazing overnight when they launched the Rogers Platinum Mastercard and the Fido Mastercard – two of the best low fee cash back credit cards on the market.

You’ll get 1.25% cash back ($0 annual fee) on both of these cards from Rogers. You also get an amazing 3% cash back on all purchases made in a foreign currency. That makes them two of the best foreign currency credit cards available.

Plus if you have and Rogers services, you’ll earn 2% cash back on those transactions.

They made their credit card lineup even better by adding the Rogers World Elite Mastercard to the mix. You’ll get 1.75% cash back on all purchases made to the card, plus 4% cash back on all foreign currency transactions. As an added bonus, you’ll still get 2% cash back on Rogers products and services charged to the card. And all for no annual fee.

You will need to meet the high-income requirements, however – $80,000 personal or $150,000 household.

The problem is that they barely scrape by as true cash back credit cards because unless you want to redeem your cash for statement credits against Rogers owned products and services, you’re stuck manually calling them once a year in November to request a cash back statement credit. If you forget to do it, you have to wait until the following year.

It’s unfortunate that only the World Elite has any included travel insurance and limited perks – except for decent sign-up bonuses (for no fee cards).

That’s ok though, with these cards it’s all about maximum cash and low fees. If that’s your jam, then Rogers’ cards are for you.
