Top 7 Cash Back Credit Card Sign Up offers for October - These cards provide the best value out of their welcome bonuses

 
Here are the Rewards Canada Top 5 7 Cash Back Credit Card Sign Up offers for the month of October 2020! This is not a 'best' credit card list like our Top Cash Back Credit Card rankings but instead a look at cards that have very good acquisition (welcome/sign up) offers. As always when choosing a card you should always take other factors into account other than the just sign up bonus, but when some of these cards are first year free, they can and do pay off even when you grab them strictly for the sign up rewards. This month we see six of the seven cards offering the first year free. Oh and this month we had to go with 7 cards instead of our usual 5 cards due to the four of them all offering the same welcome bonus.

Here are our top 7 cash back credit card sign up offers for October (in order of value)

Between these seven cards there is over $1,650 in cash back welcome bonus rewards! However even if you only take on one or two you are helping your finances at no cost other than regular credit card spend. We don't really recommend getting all five in one month unless you know you can meet the minimum spend for them all at once, rather you'd want to pick one or two right now, perhaps another next month and so on.
