Looking for a Credit Card That Works for You?


Credit Cards provide consumers with a quick and easy way to pay for items when traveling, allowing users to make everyday purchases such as gas, grocery and convenience store purchases more easily.  When you are looking for that just-right card that provides you with benefits in addition to convenience … be sure and review the card’s rewards program, if one is offered.

Reward programs allow you to earn points that can be redeemed for gift cards, travel, merchandise and other valuable items. And if you’re a frequent card user, those points can add up quickly!

Take for instance the RBC Rewards program with the RBC Bank Visa‡ Platinum or RBC Bank Visa Signature Black card.  Both cards come with NO annual fee and offer users a hassle-free way to make U.S. purchases without paying foreign exchange fees for U.S.-based merchants.  What’s more, these cards offer reward points – 1 reward point is issued for each $1 of qualifying purchases.  (The Visa Signature Black Plus offers 1.5 points for each $1 of qualifying purchases; this card carries a $75 annual fee). 

Unlike other rewards cards which are often targeted to one specific reward, such as airline miles or cash back, the RBC Bank credit cards offer a variety of reward options with new and exciting options being added every month.  Points can be used toward:

  • Gift cards from a wide variety of U.S. and Canadian retailers, restaurants and other merchants.
  • Travel with no hidden fees, black-out dates, or seat restrictions.
  • High-end merchandise such as jewelry, electronics and entertainment.

There’s even a cash-back option which cardholders can use to apply toward the outstanding account balance.  Talk about convenience!

And to get you jump-started on earning those points, when you receive your new RBC Bank credit card, register it at – and just for doing so, you’ll receive 1,000 bonus points!
