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 4% on eligible restaurant, bar, coffee shop, and takeout purchases, up to $5,000 per year
  • Earn 1.5% on eligible gas, groceries, drugstore purchases and pre-authorized payments, up to $15,000 per year.
  • Earn 0.5% on all other credit card purchases
  • 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...

If you apply it now, for your first 4 months, you can enjoy 10% cash back at restaurants and bars up to $500 spend (~$30 welcome bonus).
