Best Credit Card for Each Financial Institution (March 13, 2016)

I have written posts ranking each financial institution, but I thought it would be fun to write a post listing the top 1 credit card per institution. I have listed the credit cards based on the most recent financial institution rankings. Maybe one day I will list the top credit cards, but it highly depends on a person’s needs, so it is very subjective.

The Top Credit Card Spending Bonuses (updated March 10, 2016)

It has been just over a year since I last updated this list. With a few cancellations and changes since, I thought I’d give this list a nice little update. I find that spending bonuses are very valuable, because it rewards big spenders with a benefit that helps offset an annual fee, which will reduce the urge for churning. Personally, I would actually like to see a lot more of these types of incentives with more credit cards.

It is very slim pickings for co-branded hotel loyalty program credit cards in Canada. These are only 4 credit cards left to choose from. This also means that the market is completely wide open.

Best No Annual Fee Credit Cards

For those of you who don’t like paying annual fees. This is the post for you. Personally, I would actually prefer signing up for credit cards that waive their first year annual fees. Those are generally the credit cards with much more generous sign up bonuses. So you take the bonus first, then decide what you want to do with the credit card after the first year. In some cases, it may make sense to pay the annual fee.
