RateSupermarket.ca's Review

With no annual fee, and only a relatively modest credit score needed to qualify, the Meridian™Visa* Cash Back Card allows you to start earning cash-back hassle-free. You can earn cash-back on gas, grocery and pharmacy purchases, and even on utility bill payments.

The cash-back rate is a bit on the low side, but the Visa insurance coverage provides extra value. For added convenience, there is no cap on how much you can earn, and you can redeem your cash-back balance at any time.

Simply put, if you want rewards without changing your daily shopping habits or spending any additional money on fees, this is the card for you.

Earning Potential: $263.10 in cash-back
