Tangerine Rolls Out Money-Back Credit Card to All Canadians

Over 32,000 participated in Card Preview to create seamless experience ahead of official launch

TORONTO, ON – March 29, 2016

Tangerine is pleased to officially launch its Money-Back Credit Card following a successful Preview phase that began last year. Starting today, all Canadians can now apply for the new Credit Card that is offering 4% Money-Back Rewards for the first three months in two categories of choice and 1% Money-Back Rewards on all other purchases, with no annual fee.*

Tangerine’s Money-Back Categories include restaurants, grocery, gas, entertainment, home improvement and more. This current offer is double the regular 2% Money-Back Rewards that cardholders can earn in two categories of their choice, while continuing to earn 1% Money-Back on all other purchases.

This unique Card is also designed to help Canadians save even when they’re spending. If cardholders choose to have their Money-Back Rewards redeemed into their Tangerine Savings Account instead of back on their Credit Card, they will get an additional 2% Money-Back Category (currently 4%), for a total of three.

“We want to help Canadians make smarter decisions with their hard-earned money and this now includes giving them more choice when it comes to their spending,” says Peter Aceto, President and CEO of Tangerine. “Whether it’s groceries, gas, entertainment or other everyday spending needs, our new credit card puts money back in the pockets of our Clients, allowing them to save while they spend.”

Tangerine’s Money-Back Credit Card Preview phase lasted from October 2015 – February 2016. Thousands of Previewers signed on and provided valuable feedback that helped improve the overall Card experience including enhancements to the application process and easier navigation both online and within the Mobile Banking app.
