TD’s Cash Back Visa Infinite® card is serving up a very lucrative welcome earn rate, and worthwhile post-welcome rates as well. Cardholders will benefit from a competitive introductory cashback rate of 6% on all purchases during the first 3 months² (up to $3,500 in total spending). The card has a standard APR rate of 20.99% on purchases and 22.99% on cash advances, and offers several benefits of note aside from one of the highest introductory accelerated cashback rates in the market today. Save more money as a Primary Cardholder with a first-year annual fee rebate if you apply by August 27, 2018.

TD’s cash back offering is flexible, and lets customers redeem their earnings at any time to pay down existing balances.

Why We Like It

  1. Killer Introductory Rate
    Members that sign up can take advantage of an impressive 6% cashback rate for the first 3 months. While the period of accelerated cash back is relatively short lived, it allows you to accrue up to $210 via the 6% earn rate, which is pretty massive.
  2. Travel in Peace
    For customers looking to travel, the TD Cash Back Visa Infinite® card offers medical coverage⁸ that includes standard protection and up to $2 million in coverage during the first 10 days of a trip. Additionally, Visa Infinite® cardholders get delayed and lost baggage insurance, along with access to emergency travel assistance.
  3. Accelerated Cash Back on Gas, Groceries and Recurring Bills
    Several Canadian credit cards offer heightened cashback rates for gas and groceries; relatively few include automatic billing payments as well.
  4. Redeem Cash Back at Any Time
    A major benefit of the TD Cash Back Visa Infinite® card is that customers can redeem their cash back earnings at any time. Instead of having to wait for a yearly statement, the cash back dollars can be applied to the credit card’s balance whenever a cardholder likes (minimum $25 redemption).
  5. TD Auto Club Membership
    Cardholders can rest easy on the road knowing that the TD Cash Back Visa Infinite® card includes complimentary membership to the company’s TD Auto Club⁷. The subscription includes free emergency roadside assistance 24 hours a day.

Who Is the Card For?

Though its eligibility requirements are more strict than those of the average cashback card, the TD Visa Infinite®’s accelerated cashback rates in certain categories make it especially beneficial for some consumers, particularly families. Those who spend a significant amount on gas, groceries and recurring bills should give this card careful consideration.

 

Legal Footnotes:

2) Welcome Bonus: Must apply online by August 27, 2018. You must apply for the credit card online to be eligible for this offer. Welcome Bonus of 6% in Cash Back Dollars (“Welcome Bonus Rebate”) applies to new TD Cash Back Visa Infinite Accounts (“Account”) in the first 3 months of Account opening (“First 3 Months”) to a maximum total collective spend of $3500 (“Welcome Bonus Cap”) on all purchases charged to your TD Cash Back Credit Card Account (“Account”), and recurring bill payments set up on your Account (“Pre-Authorized Payments”). Rebate of the Annual Fee for the first year, for the Primary Cardholder will occur when you have applied for an Account online by August 27, 2018. Rebate will be applied within 2 monthly statements from the date of Account opening. The Annual Fee for any Authorized User Cards added to the Account continues to apply. Any returned items, refunds, rebates or other similar credits on any Purchases or Pre-Authorized Payment made during the First 3 Months will reduce or cancel the Cash Back Dollars earned at the Welcome Bonus Rebate on the original Purchase or Pre-Authorized Payment, as applicable. Welcome Bonus Cap: Once the Welcome Bonus Cap is reached, any further Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments made in the First 3 Months will earn Cash Back Dollars at the regular accelerated 3% rebate that applies to each of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments as set out in your Cardholder Agreement (“Accelerated Rebate”). All additional other purchases (“Other Purchases”) made in the First 3 Months will earn Cash Back Dollars at the regular rate of 1% rebate that applies each Other Purchase. Applicability of Welcome Bonus Rebate: Welcome Bonus Rebate is in place of, and not in addition to, the Accelerated Rebate. $15,000 Cap on each of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments: After the First 3 Months, the Accelerated Rebate will apply to all Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments charged to your Account up to a $15,000 maximum net annual spend (“$15,000 Cap”) for each of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments. Once the $15,000 Cap is reached for any of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases or Pre-Authorized Payments, then any further Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments made on the Account will only earn Cash Back Dollars at the standard rebate of 1% that applies to all other Purchases on the Account as set out in your Cardholder Agreement. First Year Reduction of $15,000 Cap: During the first year that the Account is open, the $15,000 Cap for each of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments will be reduced by the actual corresponding amount of Gas Purchases, Grocery Purchases and Pre-Authorized Payments made in the First 3 Months. For example, if you spend $2,000 in Gas Purchases in the First 3 Months, the $15,000 Cap for Gas Purchases will be reduced by $2,000 to $13,000 for the remaining 9 months of the first year the Account is open. Merchant Category Codes: To earn the Welcome Bonus Rebate on Gas Purchases and Grocery Purchases, the Gas Purchase or Grocery Purchase must be made at merchants classified through the Visa network with a Merchant Category Code (“MCC”) that identifies them in the “gas” or “grocery” category. Some merchants may sell gas or gas station services or products, or groceries or grocery items, or have separate merchants located on their premises that also sell gas or gas station services or products, or groceries or grocery items, but may not be classified with a gas or grocery MCC and such Purchases will not earn the Welcome Bonus Rebate. If you have questions about the MCC that applies to a Purchase, contact TD at 1-800-983-8472. Other Conditions: Welcome Bonus may be changed, withdrawn or extended at any time and cannot be combined with any other offer unless otherwise indicated.

3) Earn 3% in Cash Back Dollars (“Gas Rebate”) for each $1.00 in Purchases of gas or gas station services or products (“Gas Purchases”) charged to your TD Cash Back Credit Card Account (“Account”) and earn 3% in Cash Back Dollars (“Grocery Rebate”) for each $1.00 in Purchases of groceries or grocery items (“Grocery Purchases”) charged to your Account. Any returned items, refunds, rebates or other similar credits will reduce or cancel the Cash Back Dollars earned on the original Gas Purchase or Grocery Purchase, as applicable. $15,000 Cap: Each of the Gas Rebate and the Grocery Rebate is only available to a $15,000 maximum net annual spend (“$15,000 Cap”). Once the $15,000 Cap has been reached for either Gas Purchases or Grocery Purchases, then any further Gas Purchases and Grocery Purchases made on the Account will only earn Cash Back Dollars at the standard rebate of 1% that applies to all other Purchases on the Account as set out in your Cardholder Agreement (“Standard Rebate”). Applicability of Gas Rebate and Grocery Rebate: Each of the Gas Rebate and the Grocery Rebate is in place of, and not in addition to, the Standard Rebate.

For example, if you spend $2,000 in Gas Purchases in the First 3 Months, the $15,000 Cap for Gas Purchases will be reduced by $2,000 to $13,000 for the remaining 9 months of the first year the Account is open.

You must confirm with your merchant if they can accept Pre-Authorized Payments. Any returned items, refunds, rebates or other similar credits will reduce or cancel the Cash Back Dollars earned on the original Pre-Authorized Payment. $15,000 Cap: The PAP Rebate is only available to a $15,000 maximum net annual spend (“$15,000 Cap”). Once the $15,000 Cap has been reached, then any further Pre-Authorized Payments made on the Account will only earn Cash Back Dollars at the standard rebate of 1% that applies to all other Purchases on the Account as set out in your Cardholder Agreement (“Standard Rebate”). Applicability of PAP Rebate: The PAP Rebate is in place of, and not in addition to, the Standard Rebate.
