Search the RFD credit card forum.

Not sure why this card is getting so many downvotes. I buy a lot of things for my office off Amazon so the 5% back for the first 3 months is pretty slick.

Also since I have Prime, getting 2.5% back on all my Amazon purchases is pretty solid and beats out any other card.

I have no regrets applying for this card... that said I only ever intend to use it for Amazon purchases.

It's because you can get Amazon GC basically from almost everywhere - most grocery chains, gas station, etc. If you have creditcard that earns 5% return on grocery (Cobalt Amex or Scotia Gold amex or even Momentum/CIBC Dividend with 4% return), you can get the GC with much higher return. Right now, you can get Amazon GC with registered Mastercard at Shell to save 10% (YMMV though as some limited gas stations have refused to process with MC).

Didn't realize that Amazon.ca came out with another CC, until now. Doesn't seem to have much of a benefit for me... unless I start to want something at Amazon right now.

I mainly liked the old card as it had no Foreign transaction fees and at the time the US exchange wasn't that bad. I have that benefit with a Scotia Gold Amex already but haven't shopped in the US since our dollar tanked. I've migrated to Travel cards away from Cash Back cards now that I've been taking more vacations.

Only way I see this working for someone is if they are a heavy Amazon consumer and sign up for Prime after the 6 months at 5% is over for 2.5%. 1.5% and 1% seem to be non-competitive right now.

LOL.

2% with Brim comes with a $199 AF.

You'd have to spend $79,600 a year in Canada to come out ahead over the Rogers WE -- not counting any forex spend (2.5% net CB with the Rogers, vs 0% with the Brim)!

TBH, there are eleventy-one ways to get more value from an 80k p.a. spend than using Brim, or even Rogers WE.

But getting rid of the $199 AF card is probably as good a start as any.

Brim is behind Brim. They are funded by venture capitalists. That's described somewhere in the large Brim thread.

Completely untrue. You get 2% on Amazon purchases with the completely free Brim version, along with the no FTF.

Enough with the anti-Brim posts.

You should try reading that again.
Brim basic card is 1% on everything, and double, which is 2% at Amazon.ca https://brimfinancial.com/amazon
I only use the Brim card for forex and amazon.ca purchases, reno stores on Tangerine, and everything else is on Scotia WE (mostly groceries).
I don't like the Scotia AF, so may go TD WE for a year.
I like the idea of the Rogers card, but from what I hard it's a pain to get the cash back if you aren't a Rogers customer.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
