We have yet another newcomer in the already saturated credit card market here in Canada! The recently revamped moi program now has its own co-brand card issued by RBC. This no annual fee card will earn moi points and also provide a lot of the same benefits seen across the entire RBC credit card portfolio.

New cardholders will receive 3,000 points when they make their first purchase on the card. This bonus is worth $24.
The new card will earn points as follows:

Wrapping it up
The newest co-brand card in Canada finds itself amongst big competition in the no annual fee category and I feel it falls somewhere in the middle of the pack. Its return of 0.8% to 1.6% on spending isn’t too bad. Some no fee cards are as low as 0.5% but others are as high as 2%. The card should make some in-roads primarily in the Quebec market where the Moi program has the biggest presence. Is it strong enough for some people to switch cards, probably not but I could see people adding it to their wallets just for the 2x points earn at the stores participating in the Moi program.
