Top Cash Back Credit Card Offers for January 2020

A new year means we should expect some new offers. But for now, most offers are rolling over or extended (namely National Bank) from 2019. Most offers are expiring at the end of March.

Note that this post focuses on temporary offers. Our Top Cash Back Credit Cards page continues to list current offers that are not exclusive to limited time offers like this post.

Highlights

The biggest change to the list is the Scotia Momentum Visa Infinite Card coming back with its 10% cash back welcome offer, along with the first year fee waived. The TD Cash Back Visa Infinite Card extended its matching introductory offer, but has a weaker normal earning ratio than the Scotia Momentum Visa Infinite Card.

Also noteworthy is that the Laurentian Bank Visa Dollars offer expires today and the Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card expires at the end of the month if you are still thinking about it.

Changes to the lists

One slight change to my previous posts is that the list is getting too long, so I now divided the cards into two lists, annual fee and no annual fee. Another change I made is that I will list cards based on chronological order of the promotional expiry dates. More recent expires at the top of each respective lists.
