BMO CashBack World Elite MasterCard.
Here are the basics of this new entrant to the Cash back credit card space:
- 1.75% Cash back on all purchases
- 8 day travel and medical protection*
- Roadside Assistance*
- Purchase Protection Plus and Extended Warranty Plus*
- $120 annual fee however the first year is free if you apply by August 31
A quick look at this card puts it at the higher end of the cash back spectrum and the earning is simple, no tier bonuses etc. A straight 1.75% back on all purchases. This puts the card at .25% disadvantage when compared to its BMO Rewards World Elite MasterCard companion but that card's 2% back is strictly limited to travel redemptions where with this card you have that cash back to spend on anything. And like most Cash Back cards the benefits are limited although it is nice to see the 8 day emergency medical insurance included.
You can find all the details on this new card here.
Also released today was a World Version of the card that has a lower annual fee and a lower earn rate of 1.25%.
