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 get either 1.75% cash back ($29 annual fee) on the first, and 1.5% cash back ($0 annual fee) on the second. You also get an amazing 4% cash back on all purchases made in a foreign currency. That makes them two of the best foreign currency credit cards available.
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 December to request a cash back statement credit. If you forget to do it, you have to wait until the following year.
On the plus side, if you have any Rogers affiliated product or service automatically billed to your card, then the $29 annual fee is completely waived on the Rogers Platinum MasterCard.
It’s unfortunate that neither of their cards have any included travel insurance and limited other 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.
