Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card named 2016 Product of the Year Canada™

Card voted most innovative product in Financial Services category

TORONTO, ON – April 1, 2016

Tangerine is pleased to announce that following a nationwide consumer vote, the Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card was voted a winner in the 2016 Product of the Year Canada awards program in the ‘Financial Services’ category. This win comes on the heels of the Card’s official launch this week, following a successful Preview phase.

“We’re proud to be recognized by Product of the Year, particularly because this award was voted on by Canadians,” said Scott Lapstra, Managing Director, Credit Card Products at Tangerine. “Our Card is truly unique, as it helps our Clients save even when they’re spending, which is a testament to our focus on helping Canadians make smart decisions with their hard-earned money.”

The no annual fee Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card, powered by MasterCard, is currently offering 4%* Money-Back Rewards instead of the usual 2% on purchases in two chosen categories. All other purchases always earn 1% Money-Back Rewards. If cardholders choose to have their Money-Back Rewards redeemed into their Tangerine Savings Account instead of back on their Credit Card, they can choose a third category that earns the higher Rewards rate.

Tangerine’s Money-Back Categories include restaurants, grocery, gas, entertainment, home improvement and more. The current double Rewards offer is valid for new cardholders for their first 3 months and is also in effect for 3 months for Clients who received the Card during the Preview phase.

“We’re thrilled to see Tangerine’s first credit product win this award,” said Jim Douros, Vice President of Account Management, MasterCard Canada. “The Money-Back Credit Card offers Canadians a simple, effective way to be rewarded for everyday spending – all with the benefits, safety and security of MasterCard. It’s a winning combination and we’re proud to be Tangerine’s exclusive network partner.”
