The Tangerine Cash Back Credit Card Review

Last updated: March 20, 2019

Tangerine credit card review

If you're looking for a credit card that thinks outside the box when it comes to earning cash back rewards, you've come to the right place.

The no-fee Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card is a top contender. It lets you choose up to 3 categories to earn unlimited 2% cash back rewards, from a choice of 10 categories.

No other credit card in the market will let you do that. Plus, if your spending patterns change, you can adjust which categories earn 2% rewards accordingly.

And while it only earns (unlimited) 0.5% on everything else, it still ranks as one of the top 10 best no fee cash back cards in Canada right now.

This 0.5% earn rate may make this card less attractive, but all you need to get around it is to be creative and combine it with another credit card to maximize your rewards. Check out the maximize your rewards section below to find out how.

All-in-all, Tangerine has a winning card here and should be seriously considered as an addition to anyone's wallet. Keep reading » about The Tangerine Cash Back Credit Card Review

The willingness to spend a little time and take ACTION. You need to get organized and follow through on making some simple changes to your life. Then, watch the free money and savings start rolling in.
