Simplii Financial Cash Back Visa Card Introduction


Simplii Financial Cash Back Visa Card is officially released. It is available only to Simplii clients who apply online.

This card is pretty good:
  • No annual fee

  • Earn 1.5% on eligible gas, groceries, drugstore purchases and pre-authorized payments, up to $15,000 per year.

  • Purchase Security and Extended Protection Insurance

I should say that this is a fantastic card for restaurant spending, especially it is a Visa card. I will apply one now and use it for all restaurants that not accept AmEx. Honestly speaking, I guess the Capital One Costco MasterCard should be getting worried...
