"Canadians are faced with a myriad of credit card and personal banking product choices but have limited time or resources to determine which ones will save them the most money or provide the best perks," said Jacob Black, RateSupermarket.ca. "Our Best of Finance report was designed to fill that gap and take the guesswork away. The winners in each category represent the culmination of a comprehensive analysis aimed at helping Canadians choose the best options available for them in today's marketplace."

New in 2019 and first in the Best Card for Groceries category is the American Express Cobalt™ Credit Card. This card displaces the PC Financial® Mastercard®, which had taken the category two years in a row.

The Scotia Momentum® Visa Infinite Card is the best Gas Rewards Card for the second year straight, while also claiming top spot in the Best Rewards Card category six years running.

RateSupermarket.ca customers once again voted in the reigning Fan Favourite, PC Financial® Mastercard® as their top card of 2019.
