I would suggest buying something inexpensive from a place and see what happens on your cashback BEFORE investing in a bunch of gift cards or something expensive.

If I recall, MSF the charity and Zoomer Wireless were dropped, while Rogers, Netflix, and Presto were still recurring.

Didn't pass as recurring for me :( (same as Fizz by the way), at least there's no loss due to the promo rate :), once that's done they're going back to MBNA RWE (2%)

Yep, I can confirm: not recurring just 1%.

It will show on your monthly Statement reward total. Also total reward Balance on-line in your acct.

I'm looking for a DP from someone that's held the card since last year or previous years.

Does the annual fee count towards the $2000 spend? I'm asking because the CIBC dividend card counted the annual fee (which was refunded but cashback amount was unchanged) towards the 10% cashback rate.

Walmart never codes as supermarket.

Save-on-foods and Pricesmart foods are in the 4% category, though. If that helps.

The 4% groceries category is based on merchant code. Neither Wal-mart nor Costco is in this category.

Costco doesn't accept Visa anyways, unless it does online?

Costco online does accept VISA, but this comment was also for those MC users who have a merchant code-based rewards program.

I bought $1500 worth of Costco cash card on Costco.ca to maximize the initial 10% ROS on this card.
-=MK=- wrote: Reading the fine print I see that if you want to yield the best return on this offer, you are better using that 10% $2000 limit on something that will normally only get you 1%.

"If the Regular Cash Back Program Rate for the Groceries and Recurring Payments category is 4% then the Cash Back Bonus Rate will be 6% for that category so that you will earn a total of 10% on the amount of all eligible everyday purchases in that category until the Offer End Date"

So yes while you will eventually get 10% back, spending it on it on 4% categories will only really get you a 6% bonus as opposed to the 9% that you could get.

I remember reading some time ago that with the costco cash card, you cannot buy anything that is on sale/marked down/clearance at costco warehouses. It is only good for regular price items at local costcos. Is that true?

Question about highinterestsavings.ca

I find their website to be... well... crap. I applied through their site, but didn't see a place to put in info to recieve the cashback, or a place on the site to indicate the status of the cashback earned, etc.

Basically, I'm curious how I actually get "paid" the cashback. Do I need to fill in info on their website, or?

Also - related to this card and the first $2000 spend. Has anyone noticed if they cherry pick what to apply the first $2000 bonus too... or will it definitely be the "first" $2000 spent on the card.

In other words... if I make sure to spend $2000 on items that would normally give 1% to maximize the bonus, and THEN in the same first billing cycle spend more on items that give 4% bonus... they won't "choose" the 4% bonus spend as part of the intial 2K?
