Good for

If you’re torn between choosing a cash back credit card or a rewards credit card, the Brim Mastercard might be for you. This credit card offers the best of both worlds - points can be turned into cash back dollars or used towards a number of redeemable rewards. 

Brim Mastercard’s $0 foreign transaction fees and global WiFi access also make it a great option for frequent travellers.

  • Limited Insurance - Brim Mastercard offers few insurance perks, lacking more than ten of the insurance types included with Brim World Mastercard and Brim World Elite Mastercard.

    About Brim Mastercard 

    Rewards & Cash Back

    With a Brim Mastercard, rewards can be calculated as points or cash back dollars. This is how rewards are earned:

    • 1 point per dollar spent or
    • 1% cash back 

    As a result, 1 point is equal to $0.01. For example, if you spend $100 you earn 100 points. This is equivalent to $1 cash back. 

    Unlike other credit cards, Brim Mastercard does not limit the amount of cash back dollars you can earn. This gives cardholders the freedom to spend and redeem without limitation. 

    Brim Mastercard cardholders can earn more points when shopping at featured stores. 

    Examples of retailers that will earn you extra points include:

    • Frank and Oak - 10%
    • Lululemon - 10%
    • Sonos - 8%
    • Contiki - 15%

    Once you’ve earned points, they can be redeemed for any of the following rewards:

    • Cash back
    • Groceries
    • Concerts
    • Gas, and more

    Brim doesn’t restrict reward redemption. This means that you can redeem points or cash back whenever and wherever you’d like.

    Travel

    When it comes to travelling, having a Brim Mastercard offers the following benefits to enhance your vacation:

    • Free WiFi at over one million hotspots around the world through Boingo Wireless
    • $0 foreign transaction fees when using the card outside of Canada or online. Currency exchange rates still apply.
