Editor's Review

The Desjardins Cashback Card is yet another card from Desjardins with no annual fee. Again, it's non-impressive in terms of cashback, offering you only 1% back on your purchases. However, you may get additional cards for free, plus car rental discounts at Hertz. Let's explore some of the features of this card below.

 

First, you don't have to pay anything for it. The interest rate is at a standard $19.99, but that's pretty much all that you're going to have to pay. However, you can get insurance for your mobile device for up to $1,000. Very few card providers give you mobile or tablet insurance for free.

 

Just like other Desjardins cards, you can benefit from travel insurance for free during the first 3 days of your travel. This includes everything, from trip cancellation and emergency medical trips to baggage insurance and interruption.

 

For Hertz rentals, you can get 10% back. You can also enjoy free travel assistance. When you travel abroad, you'll have to pay a low 2.5% currency conversion fee. However, for the balance transfer, you'll have to pay a high 21.99%, so you should not use this card to pay off your debt.
