Title: Credit Card Advice (for Canadians)
Post by: Kazimieras on August 01, 2013, 10:26:15 AM
Well it finally happened. After a few years of having a TD Gold Visa credit card, TD is removing the collision insurance feature on their gold card as of September. For us this means we need to find a new alternative. We currently use the gold card for:

The other nice part of this card is that it doesn't have an annual fee :) But alas, it seems we need to look for a new one.

Can anyone recommend a card that offers the auto insurance option and good foreign currency exchange? We would prefer without a fee, but even at normal fee costs, we would still be ahead. Cash back and other niceties are nice to haves, but not needed.

You might need to get more than one, to tick all those boxes.

FX: Chase card. It's 0%, no fee, and you get $15 off an Amazon order too.

TD has this page, maybe another of their cards: would do?

It looks like the Capital One Aspire cards offer collision stuff, so maybe one of those?

I'm going to mention Great Canadian Rebates again - you can potentially get $100 cashback for applying via them for a new card. This is my refer-a-friend link - if you just want to go straight to the site just lop off the /Register... bit.

Good luck!
