Ranking the Credit Card Portfolios of Each Canadian Financial Institutions (updated December 12, 2022)

For the most part, 2022 was a relatively quiet year in terms of changes to the credit card industry (in terms of permanent offers). There was a significant amount of all-time high sign up bonuses, which do not factor into our ranking system. Our rankings are based on the intention of retaining credit cards for the long term, not based on churning.

Top Credit Card for Purchasing Groceries (updated on October 21, 2022)

I cannot believe that it has been over 6 years since we last updated this post. So we are way overdue for an update. Furthermore, with the way inflation has been going, who does not want to reduce their credit card bill?

First of all, I recommend signing up for free loyalty programs affiliated with groceries to rack up rewards for spending, along with watching for sales. Then triple dip with using a credit card that gives a higher multiplier bonus when shopping at grocery stores.
