RateSupermarket.ca's Review

With a special offer cash-back rate of 5% in your first three months of cardmembership**, the BMO® CashBack® World Elite® Mastercard® certainly caught our attention. This offer is valid up to $4,000 in spending (so up to $200 in cash-back), before the rate reverts to a more modest 1.5%2B.

The real benefit to this card comes not from its rate of return, but from its flexibility. You earn cash-back on ALL card purchases, without restriction! This flexibility is a real plus to those of us who don't have the time or inclination to limit our shopping to a few specific vendors. You can shop wherever you like, safe in the knowledge that your credit card is working overtime to get you some money back.

If you're looking for card perks, the BMO® CashBack® World Elite® Mastercard® doesn't disappoint. Generous travel and shopping insurance coverage is included37, and you get access to VIP airport lounges, roadside assistance19 and the BMO Concierge Service.

Overall, the 1.5% cash-back rate won't make you rich, but this card is jam-packed with benefits designed to save you time and money. If you value convenience and flexibility, this Mastercard could be the one for you.
