If you’re looking for a great deal, our friends at Rate Supermarket have a summer savings promotion going on right now where you can get a free $100 gift card, plus the chance to win a Weber Genesis gas grill valued at $899.99.  Here’s how it works:

Free $100 Gift Card

By signing up for either the Smart Cash MasterCard, or the Platinum Plus MasterCard, you’ll get a free $100 gift card to one of the following retailers:

  • Starbucks
  • Amazon.ca
  • Future Shop
  • Boston Pizza

Then you can enter your contact information for a chance to win the Weber Genesis gas grill, along with 1 of 2 $100 gas gift cards and 1 of 4 $25 Starbucks gift cards.

This is a limited time offer that expires July 31st.  You can sign up here.

Smart Cash Card

The Smart Cash MasterCard is one of the top no-fee cash back credit cards in Canada and is worth carrying in your wallet for three reasons:

  1. There’s a six month bonus period where you’ll earn 5% cash back on your grocery and gas spending, up to $400 a month.  When you max out this spending category multiplier for six months, you’ll earn $120.
  2. Once your six month bonus period expires, you’ll still earn 2% cash back on groceries and gas purchases, up to $400 a month.  That beats every no-fee cash back credit card in Canada.
  3. Did I mention Smart Cash comes with no annual fee?

Platinum Plus Card

Here are two good reasons to get the Platinum Plus card.  First, if you carry a credit card balance from month-to-month, you’ll get 0% interest for 12 months on all balance transfers, and there’s no annual fee.

You can save hundreds of dollars in interest payments with a 0% balance transfer card.  Just make sure to aggressively pay off your card during the interest free period to make the most of this offer.

The second reason to get the Platinum Plus card is if you already have the Smart Cash card, but you still want to take advantage of this fantastic promotion and get a free $100 gift card for the summer.

Final Thoughts

I’ve taken advantage of these free gift card promotions before, and I know many of our readers have too.  Once your credit card application is approved, you’ll receive an e-gift card for the retailer you chose when you signed up.

I selected a Future Shop gift card last time and it was easy to redeem in-store.

These promotions are great because there’s really no catch.  There are no annual fees to pay with either card, you get $100 to spend at one of four top retailers, and you either get one of the top cash back cards (no card can beat 5% cash back on groceries and gas, even if it’s just for six months) or you get a balance transfer card with 0% interest for 12 months.
